The Principles of an Eagle Scout

posted Aug 26, 2018, 7:00 AM by Alex Karn

This is Mr. Greg Karn writing under Mr. Alex Karn's sign-in, because as everyone knows, I can't figure out computers. A few days ago, Luke McLaughlin, one of our Eagle Alumni, asked me if he could borrow Troop 150's open trailer for a day or two. Because the trailer is actually titled and registered under my name, I said OK. As anyone who pulls that trailer knows, the tail-lights have been in a patched-together condition for a few years. I looked at trailer this morning, and found that while Luke had it, he took the time and expense to put on brand-new tail-lights, and completely re-wire the trailer. By my reckoning, this makes Luke Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, and Thrifty. This was also a Good Turn, and exemplifies the Leave No Trace principle of leaving things better than you found them. THANK YOU LUKE!!!!!

Scouting year 2018-2019

posted Aug 18, 2018, 12:00 PM by Alex Karn

After a good time at Summer Camp, with many Merit Badges earned, we are preparing for the new Scouting season.

The job of Scoutmaster has passed to Mr. Brian Maher. We wish him luck, and we will provide him with all the respect given to past Scoutmasters (maybe more!)

The first Troop Committee meeting will be held on Tuesday 9/11/18 at 7:30PM at the Adelphia Firehouse.

The first regular Troop meeting will be held on Thursday 9/13/18 at 7:00PM at the firehouse.
It is very important that all Scouts attend, as we will be holding elections for our new Senior Patrol Leader.

We are looking forward to a great year!!

Final Summer Camp Reminder

posted Jul 21, 2018, 2:25 PM by Alex Karn

1) Please plan to arrive at Ockanickon by 1:00PM, unless you have made other arrangements with us.

2) If you wish to have your personal gear loaded into the trailer and driven down to the campsite, please be at Ralph Stover State Park before 1:00PM. 
    Mr. Greg Karn will have his blue GMC Yukon and the trailer parked there to receive your gear. He will be there at about 12 noon.
    The address for Stover Park is 6011 State Park Road, Pipersville, PA 18947. It is just down the road from Ockanickon, which is 5787 State Park Road.

3) If you have not turned in your Medical Form, please do not forget to bring it to camp.

4) Unfortunately, the weather forecast looks a little damp, so don't forget your rain gear.


Summer Camp Updates

posted Jul 15, 2018, 3:05 PM by Alex Karn

1) We are confirmed in Seneca campsite again this year.

2) There is a new food service in camp, and they are requesting that Scouts with food allergies and/or needing special diets do the following:
        Go to Ockanickon home page at www. ockanickon. org
        Use the drop-down box under "parents" and click on "forms and resources" 
        Scroll down to "special diet and allergy reporting"
        Fill out the form and send it. "In camp leader" will be Greg Karn 732-850-3036

3) We still have some Scouts who have not turned in their Medical Forms. See previous announcements for tips on filling out the forms.
     Forms can be left in the mailbox at 42 Yellowbrook Road, Howell. They can also be FAXed to 732-751-0626.
     If you are uncomfortable with these methods due to privacy issues, please call us and we'll make some arrangement.
     If you show up at camp without a properly filled out Medical Form, there is going to be very little we can do to help you.

Summer Camp Information

posted Jul 2, 2018, 1:19 PM by Alex Karn

Ockanickon has established a very limited vehicle access policy this year, and they would rather not have us trying to load the trailer in the parking lot for the trip down into the camp site. For those who do not want to hike their gear in, Mr. Karn will have his truck and the trailer parked at Ralph Stover State Park, which is about one half mile further down State Park Road from Ockanickon. Please plan to be at Stover Park on Sunday by 1:00PM AT THE LATEST. You can off-load your gear, and then return to the Ockanickon parking lot to meet up with our Ockanickon Staff Guide.

Any Scouts who require an Epipen or an inhaler are requested to bring two: one to keep on their person, and one to store at the Health Lodge. Items stored at the Health Lodge will be returned.

Mr. Alex Karn and Mr. Greg Karn will be at the Adelphia Firehouse on Thursday 7/5 between 7PM and 8PM. Any medical forms or blue cards not yet dropped off can be taken care of, and we can answer any last-minute questions about camp. We will also have shirt orders if you have not picked up yet.


Summer Camp Medical Forms

posted Jun 30, 2018, 5:27 PM by Alex Karn

We are still awaiting a number of medical forms. They can be left in our mailbox at 42 Yellowbrook Road, Howell.
Please remember the following:

The participant (the Scout) must sign.
Parent must sign on page B under the medication list in order for medication to be administered.
Health insurance card must be copied front and back.
We need three copies, because Ockanickon does not return the forms. (If you've already handed in your form, we'll take care of the copying)

Cranberry Road Clean-up

posted Jun 24, 2018, 8:59 AM by Alex Karn

We will be cleaning Cranberry Road on Thursday 6/28 at 6PM. We will be meeting at the Monmouth County Public Works yard at 383 Cranberry Road. Please wear long pants and sturdy shoes or boots. Bring bug spray and water or beverage of your choice. Work gloves and trash bags will be supplied. Clean-up will be held regardless of weather, except in case of strong thunderstorm.

Following the clean-up (weather permitting) there will be a pool and pizza party at Mr. Pitarresi's house at 38 Streambank Drive, Howell.

This is a major fundraiser for Troop 150, so please come out and help.
