New Troop Shirt Supplier Found!

Posted on Jan 19 2022 - 4:46pm

It took some effort, but thanks to several of our committee members we have found a new supplier for our troop shirts and they look great! Although the brand of shirt is different, the material / style is the same moisture wicking polyester design.

We will be placing an order on Tuesday January 18. Anyone wishing to order a shirt needs to submit their order prior to this date.

The new shirts are $15 each. To order, please ensure that you submit your payment to the Treasurer by this date, and email your completed order form along with size to shirts@bsatroop617.org Please be specific regarding youth size or adult size. A PayPal button has been added for your convenience.

The order form also contains options for long sleeve shirts, polo shirts, and hooded sweatshirts, and cinch sacks.  If you have other items you'd like to see, we'd love to hear your suggestions!

Potential 2022 Summit High Adventure

Posted on Sep 23 2021 - 4:24am

Some of our scouts have expressed an interest in attending Summit High Adventure in June 2022.  The proposed trek would be the New River Experience, a 6-day 50-mile whitewater rafting adventure. The cost would be approximately $1200 - $1500 per person.  Approximate dates would be June 9-18, 2022. You can read more about this high adventure trek here

If you are interested please sign up here.  This is not a commitment, only a show of interest.  Once we determine if we have enough people we will schedule a meeting to discuss next steps.

Medical Forms - Action Required!

Posted on Jan 5 2021 - 9:25am

On January 1, 2021, the former version of the BSA medical form became invalid, and ALL scouts and scouters are required to use the updated version of the Medical Form.  If your most recent medical form submission was not on the new form (the 2019 printing with sections A, B1, B2, and C) , please complete and submit two (2) copies of the new form to Jackie Lopina as soon as possible.  Also, please note that you cannot attach additional pages; you must complete the form sections as shown - this includes the immunization section.  You can find the new form on our web site here.

Please note that scouts and scouters will NOT be able to participate in activities unless they have provided a new medical form with at least sections A, B1, and B2 (these are the sections that are completed by the scout/scouter/parents).
