Please Remember To Bring in Your Receipts

For those of you who shopped for your patrols for last weekend’s campout, I wanted to say you all did a great job in camping and cooking in some bad weather. Way to tough it out!

Please remember to bring in your receipts to tomorrow’s meeting. When you sit with your patrols, why not discuss with your patrols whether you were within the budget, and did you eat well. The one thing this troop prides itself on is our food!  Just wait until next month!

Here is a link to the troop expense reimbursement form. Please hand the form and the receipts into Ms. Villacci , You can either get a troop check or add it to your scout account to help pay for other trips.

I hope you all had a great time. Thank you.

Where to Go This Summer? Yawgoog, Philmont, or Jamboree?

Well, now that you are just getting settled into the School Year, it’s time to think about Summer!! (Wha??).  That’s right, next Summer offers a whole host of activities that you can join.  But before you “Pack up your Duffle”, you and your parents have some tough decisions to make.  Some of your choices are:

  • Yawgoog – We always a great time at “The Beach”.  For those of you who have been there, Enough Said.  For those of you who haven’t, talk to a buddy or troop member who has and find out what it is about.
  • Philmont –  I believe that Mr. Rubesh has a couple of spots that just opened up for the 2017 trek.  I can tell you from personal experience that it is a once in a lifetime experience!  (twice if you are lucky).  There is an upcoming meeting on High Adventure Camps to learn more.
  • National Jamboree – I know there were a couple of scouts that said they might be interested in going to National Jamboree this year.  Suffolk County Council is taking a contingent to the National Jamboree at the Summit in West Virginia.  Click on the “Read More”

If you are thinking about doing any of these, you need to have long conversation with your parents, because none of these great opportunities are cheap.  Thank you.
