Lake Pleasant

Posted by rvideen on Sep 28 2020 - 4:26pm

The Troop will be going to Lake Pleasant on  Saturday October 3rd for a day of canoeing, swimming, kayaking, and to work on the Canoeing merit badge. Those Scouts who already have the merit badge can help instruct or may swim, use the extra canoes and kayaks or fish if they choose too.  (Remember Scouts over 14 need a license) Geezers will provide a  shore line lunch. This has always been a fun trip in the past and will be a good way for us to start back at our Scouting activities.

ATTENTION Court of Honor Date Updated

Posted by sbuchanan on Sep 20 2020 - 10:17pm

The NEXT Court of Honor will take place in person as a Troop. We will celebrate the merit badges earned at camp and individually and rank advancements. We will take care to follow current CDC guidelines which will be updated as the time nears. Scouts will sit with their family. Bring chairs. Boys will be asked to come up, retrieve their envelopes which will be sealed prior. For Rank Advancement - parents will join their scout one at a time in the front. 

Change to Monday night meeting formats

Posted by rhetrick on Sep 12 2020 - 11:44pm

For the next several Mondays, our troop will be meeting in the backyard of the Russell home. The patrols will be separated, practicing safe measures, including wearing masks, while they work on skills.  Address: 4931 W Tierra Buena Ln, Glendale.

We are asking that adults do not attend with their scouts unless they are in a leadership role. You may remain in your car, stay in the front yard or go enjoy a cup of coffee! This is just another form of safe measure. Our Court of Honor, to highlight our scouts’ successes will also be at the Russell home (more to come). Yay, Russell’s, way to volunteer! 

Alternate way to attend will be Zoom, using the info we've sent out every Monday and will send out again on Monday (not published here on public website).


New BSA Medical Forms - Old ones being phased out

Posted on Apr 11 2020 - 4:46pm

New BSA Medical Forms were introduced in late 2019.  You can find them attached below and also in the Files section of our website.

Note that these are fillable PDFs that allow you to type in most of the info and then print them and sign them,  You can also print out the blank form and fill it all out by hand.

Please start using this form from here on.  If you use an older form in 2020, it will be honored only until 12/31/2020.

The 680001_AB.pdf form has Parts A and B, which the Troop needs for every youth and adult for outings of 72 hours or less.Note that a photocopy of any insurance cards should be attached.

The 680001_ABC.pdf form has Parts A, B and C.  This form can cover both the 72 hours outings and any lomger outing, such as Summer Camps, NYLT, Philmont, Florida Sea Base, etc.  A photocopy of insurance forms is also needed for this form.  Part C must be signed by a Physician, Nurse Practioner (NP), or Physician's Assistant (PA).  While the Part C page is a fillable form, it's very likely that you will give the form to the Physician or NP or PA and they will do their parts by hand, and most importantly sign it.

Mrs. Buchanan will maintain the forms until (and if) a new medical form keeper is identified.  We would like everyone to turn in a new form (at least Parts A and B) starting immediately, and hold on to Part C if you can't get the physical right away.  Part C will of course be part of getting ready for any of the long term camps that are coming up.  What we want to avoid is any last minute problem on a weekend outing with youth or adults having their old forms expire, so getting new ones from everybody in January really helps.

We also strongly recommend that you give us a copy of your originals rather than trust us to have the only copy.  Stuff happens!
