Scoutmaster's Minute
Jim Horvath

Preparation for the Troop Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser is underway. Lorri Baughman and Dawn Nabors are co-chairs, but it takes all our Troop Families to make it a success. Scouts are servers and Parents are active behind the scenes, cooking, filling orders, etc. This is part of the agreement for the Troop not to charge annual registration and Boy’s Life fees and to provide uniform patches as long as a Scout participates in the Troop. An added benefit of the Parents participating is the opportunity to meet the other parents. Please seize this opportunity!

We will be completing the Troop re-charter by mid-March. If anyone has moved or changed telephone numbers or email addresses, please email that information to Mr. Horvath by March 1. The fee to re-charter each Scout is $36 and the fee for each Registered Leader and Troop Committee Member is $24. We do not collect this fee from Scout whose families participate in the Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser and who sell popcorn in the fall.

Summer Camp at Camp Manatoc is one of the highlights of the year for Scouts! It is a full week of activities and advancement opportunities in the outdoors. Troop 390 attends Camp Manatoc week 5, July 16-22. Earlybird fee is $255, if paid by to the Troop by May 16.

Each Scout and Adult who participates in the Troop must complete a BSA Medical Form Parts A, B, and C. For Scouts, Parts A & B are completed by the parent. Part C is a Physical completed by a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant. For Summer Camp the Physical must be dated July 22, 2016 or later, preferably in 2017. We are asking all Medical forms to be turned in to the Troop by July 1. For the High Adventure, Medical Forms from last year may still be valid, but should be updated for any changes. We will go over them in the coming weeks to see whose Medical needs updated.

Great Trail Council will again offer Camp Cards for Scouts to sell to help pay for Summer Camp or other Scouting costs. They sell for $10 each and the Troop puts $5 from each sale in the seller’s Scout Account. The Cards work basically the same as last year. The Cards are by Entertainment Promotion Network. More information will be available at the Troop meetings. Camp Card Sale is in March and April. Anyone interest should tell Mr. Horvath, so he can order the cards.

Scouts Working on T-2-1
Brent Bartlett

Planning for Scouts working on Tenderfoot, Second Class, or First Class requirements should bring their scout handbook to EVERY scout meeting (and remember to take it home, too!) Mr. Bartlett must see the handbooks to record all completed requirements in Troop Master.

Cyber Chip Training
Cathy Savage

All scouts had cyber chip training at the 12/6/16 meeting.  Please review the information with them at home.  Please sign and return the training paper to the troop meeting.

Membership Chair Needed

We are looking for a person to be our membership chair.  This person will write articles for the local newspapers and help with recruiting new Scouts.

If you are interested, please contact Jim Horvath.
