RECHARTERING – IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!
- I would like to remind you that we encourage ALL parents to take the Youth Protection Training. And, if you are going to be handling any activities that will include scouts other than your own, we would appreciate you signing up as a registered adult, so we can count you activity as official.
- We did some testing of electronic summer camp payments over the summer and it worked well! So I am going to be taking a variety of E-PAYMENTS for 2021 Dues.
- Dues are $120, and I would appreciate payment by November 25. YOU MUST EMAIL OR NOTIFY ME SOMEHOW OF YOUR SCOUTS’ INTENTION TO REMAIN IN THE TROOP FOR 2021, OR HE WILL NOT BE RECHARTERED. This is because all scouts who recharter have to be paid for from the scout account, and it hurts out troop if we pay for scout who does not pay, or who has no intention of belonging for the coming year.
PLEASE let me know if you want your scout to continue, but need financial assistance. WE WANT EVERY SCOUT TO BE ABLE TO JOIN SCOUTING. It is available on a case by case basis.
Here is how to pay electronically
VENMO – @Christell-Casey
ZELLE – email@example.com
PAYPAL – christellcasey1
Please be sure to make a note in the transaction memo somewhere which scout this is for so I can update records. PLEASE DO THIS AS SOON AS YOU CAN
THANKS, and let me know if you have any difficulty.
MEETINGS – If you missed the Pine tree Meeting, you can view the recording in three parts in the Troop 313 YouTube Channel. A lot was discussed, including knots and Totin’ Chip, so make sure you get caught up!
Jim Davis also has a YouTube Channel with other videos for Rank Advancement. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDRO9sW_DXRQbzdKBJBYZOg
Once your scout feels like they have mastered a skill, you will need to contact Mr. Davis to demonstrate proficiency. He can check off completion in Scoutbook. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check the calendar for next weeks’ topics. PLease make sure that if they need rope or other equipment that they have it ready for the meeting. Zoom Link for these Classes will be in Scout Calendar
ALUMINUM CANS – I want to keep this Activity going. It provides a substantial amount of revenue for the troop which helps keep our dues low. I am hoping that a lot of you have been collecting cans since we stop seeing each other in March. If you have cans that you’ve been collecting, bring them to my house (5226 S. Madelia) and leave them by the front door. I will get them to Bob.
CAMPING –We have a boy’s campout scheduled for Nov 13-15.Mr Mick needs to know what boys will be going (not think they will go)! He needs to know if the parents are staying overnight and if they are wanting to eat with the adult group. Cost for adults will be $45 if they come Friday and $30 if they come Saturday Communicate this information to Bob at email@example.com. Cut-off date to sign up is Nov 8th. There will be absolutely no late sign ups or attendee’s. Current plan is to go to Riparia Campground on the Snake River. Drive time to site is approximately 2 hours. Directions to the campsite will be posted on troop website on Thursday Nov 12th.
CITIZENSHIP IN THE NATION – Next Thursday, I will be having a ZOOM Class to finish up any Citizenship in the Nation that was started at the Whitworth college. I will finish this badge with those missing elements first, so those scouts can finish,. But, over the course of the next few weeks we will go through the whole merit badge from start to finish for anyone who wants to. Zoom Link for this Class will be in Scout Calendar
