Troop Dues due

Posted on Nov 22 2020 - 10:51pm

Hello Troop,

 Once again, it’s time for our yearly dues. This year our dues are $ 85 for Scouts.  This comparable to last year.  

 Dues for adults are $65.  Unfortunately, since our primary fundraising event was cancelled this year, the Troop cannot cover the enrollment for adults.    

Schedule Change (again) - Lazy Camp out is cancelled for weekend of 11/21 -11/22.

My sincerest apologies for this, but Timberidge is NOT available the weekend of 11/21-11/22.  Given we don't' have a venue, we need cancel the event for the planned weekend.  We probably need to make a decision regarding the event at the troop meeting on Tuesday.  Timberidge IS available on 11/28, but that's Thanksgiving weekend.  We could move it to the Saturday after T Giving if enough people are in town?  Or cancel?  
The webmaster is also aware of the problems with the sign-up form.  WE can take a look at it and see why no one could sign up, and we can re-use it if we decide to reschedule.
This is on me.  I put the cart before the horse a bit in sending out the announcement without verifying with Dusty that we actually can have Timberidge. 

Just a reminder that we can still attend meetings either in person or on-line

Just a reminder / refresher on the meeting schedule. We are still holding hybrid in person/on line meetings for the troop. The meetings will start at 6:30, just they have for the past several weeks.

After some research and planning (it's gun season for hunters), the Troop agreed to move the Backpacking trip set for 11/21 to January, and move the lazy campout to the week of 11/21.  We are on a bit of a short notice to plan the trip, so we will need everyone to make sure they know what the event entails  Here's the preliminaries:
