As announced at Thursday's meeting, there will be a road clean-up on Saturday, September 18th at 10AM. We will meet on Remington Court.

Trailers

posted Aug 14, 2021, 6:14 AM by Alex Karn

Mr. Stringer was able to arrange for us to get the trailer from the disbanded Troop 160, along with some camping gear. This trailer is road-worthy and can be towed. Mr. Maher got permission from the Fire Company for us to keep both trailers at the firehouse.

On Saturday, 8/21, we will be sorting through both trailers at the firehouse, starting at 10AM. We will also be repairing the roof on the old trailer with materials provided by Mr. Meier.

Any gear that is deemed to be surplus will be sold to raise funds, coordinated by Mr. Rivera.

Please come out to help.

Summer Camp follow-up

posted Aug 7, 2021, 8:13 AM by Alex Karn

As part of Ockanickon's COVID-19 protocols, they are following up with Troops at 7 days and 14 days out to determine if any adult or youth campers have experienced COVID symptoms or tested positive for COVID. If you have, please contact Mr. Karn via E-Mail at sgk8102@hotmail.com. No news is good news.

Summer Camp Covid update

posted Jul 15, 2021, 10:28 AM by Alex Karn

There is a Pre-Event Screening Form on Ockanickon's website under "forms and resources". Please fill out and bring with you on Sunday. There is no place for your name, and it doesn't say they will be collecting the forms, but let's err on the side of caution.

As requested, a Port-a-Potty has been ordered for our troop use.
For any Scouts needing special diets, parents are requested to fill out the special diet form on the Ockanickon website.
Still missing some medical forms. If parents are uncomfortable with leaving in mailbox, contact Mr. Karn at sgk8102@hotmail.com or 732-850-3036 and he will pick up.

Summer Camp

Ockanickon posted a new masking policy on June 30th. You can go on the website to read it, but essentially it says you don't have to mask up if you are vaccinated. Although it doesn't say you have to prove it, it might make things easier to bring a copy of your card if you have had the vaccine.
Still missing medical forms from some folks. Mailbox at 42 Yellowbrook Road, or bring to Troop Committee meeting on Tuesday please.

To the best of my knowledge, I do not have part "C" (doctor's exam) medical forms for any Scouts.

The following adults have expressed interest in going:

Again, as far as I know, I only have a part "C" from Mr. Rivera.
