Troop 48 Update - 9/29/17

Posted on Sat, Sep 30, 2017

October Campout – DATE CHANGE and Fee due next Tuesday

Our next campout will be backpacking on October 21-22, and the $25 campout fee is due next Tuesday, October 3 (a week early due to fall break). The location and dates of our October trip has been changed due to problems with the previous location and to help accommodate some of our Scouts schedules better. We will be leaving on SATURDAY morning for a short drive to Big Hill Pond State Park, just 60 miles from Germantown.  Scouts should arrive at 8:00 am Saturday morning on October 21 at the Ralph Moak garage. 


Popcorn Fundraiser

The orders and money are due on October 24, and the popcorn will be delivered on November 14. If you fill up an entire order form sheet, please turn it in to Mrs. Gamblin to be entered into a drawing for weekly prizes, with the first one due by Oct 2. Scoutmaster Issing’s challenge is to sell $1,000 of popcorn and you will get to put a pie in his face! Also, all Scouts will earn 60% of the Troop’s profit for what they sell in their Scout Bucks account. So let’s get selling!


Greenery Fundraiser

The orders and money are due on October 24, and the greenery will likely be delivered the week of November 13.  Cash prizes will be awarded to the top 3 Scouts with the most sales, and if you sell more than Scoutmaster Issing, you will get to put a pie in his face!  Scouts earn 60% of the profits for what they sell in their Scout Bucks account, so this is a great way to pay for your Scouting activities!  For Holiday Gift orders that will be shipped by FedEx, be sure to complete a Holiday Gift Order Form for each item. Please see Mrs. Ridenhour if you need more Holiday Gift Order Forms. Note that we are selling 25” and 36” wreaths – the 25” ones will fit on a door, the 36” ones are too large for a door.



Our Troop is actively recruiting for new members, so please invite any boys you know ages 11-17 to join us at a Troop meeting. We’ll be inviting prospects to camp with us on the November campout at Wall Doxey State Park November 10-12.
