Troop 48 Update - 4/13/17

Posted on Mon, Apr 17, 2017

May Campout Fee due this Tuesday, April 18

Our campout for May will be a rock climbing trip at Jackson Falls, IL on May 5-7. The climbing and rappelling will be led by staff from Climb Nashville and they will provide the climbing equipment. The cost of this trip is $80 per person and is due on Tuesday, April 18. Attached is a Climb Nashville waiver form that must be completed for each person attending the trip, please turn in the completed waiver (4 pages) to Mr. Bo Hormberg prior to the trip. If you wish to attend the trip but not participate in the climbing, the cost is $25.  The cost of the trip also includes lunch on Sunday at Lamberts Café in Sikeston. The troop will be returning to the church around 3:30 pm on Sunday May 7. 


Troop T-shirt Order

Attached is an order form for Troop t-shirts. All orders and money are due by May 2 at the Court of Honor to Mrs. Peggy Lux. Scouts attending Skymont will be wearing Troop t-shirts each day, so they need enough to get them through the week. You may also turn in orders at the Troop meetings prior to May 2 to Mrs. Kim Ridenhour. Long sleeve shirts are also available to order and won’t be ordered again until next year, so get your order in now if you would like a long sleeve shirt for the fall and winter.


Church Service Project – Saturday, April 22

We will be cleaning out flower beds and spreading mulch at the church on Saturday April 22 beginning at 9 am. We will finish by noon, but be prepared to pick up earlier if we finish early. Wear work clothes and gloves and bring a water bottle. If you can, bring a shovel or bucket to spread mulch.  All Scouts need service project hours to advance to the next rank, so this is an excellent opportunity to meet those requirements.


Higher Adventurers Trip – Sunday, April 23

The Higher Adventurer Scouts will be going for a day trip on the Ghost River section of the Wolf River on Sunday, April 23.  If you bring your own kayak, SUP (Stand up paddle board), or canoe, the cost is $10; otherwise prices are as follows, due on April 23:

• Kayak $40

• Canoe $50 ($25 per person if you canoe with someone else)

• SUP $50 (No first timers please)

We will plan to leave Collierville at about 8:30 AM and return about 5:00 PM.  If interested please email Mr. Hormberg at and specify your rental or shuttle needs. Higher Adventurer Scouts must be at least 14 years old and have attained the rank of 1st Class.  All Scouts and adults participating must have passed the BSA swim check and qualify as a “BSA Swimmer”.


BSA Health Form C Due April 25 Health Form C requires a doctor’s signature and is due by April 25, so make your appointments to visit your doctor soon. Form C is required for trips over 72 hours for Scouts and Adults, (Skymont and the Summer Adventure), but we recommend that all Scouts get Form C completed and turned in to Mr. Richard Ralph by April 25.


HAPPY EASTER to everyone!

“…just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4)
