The yearly BSA Troop recharter event is upon us. Fees for 2020 are $120 per scout.
The fees cover BSA registration, BSA-GSMC insurance & Boy’s Life. They also include funds for Troop operations, gear replacement, camp ground fees, etc. We must complete the BSA recharter by December 14, 2019.
***Without this yearly registration Scouts will not be able to participate in outings starting in January***
If helpful, special arrangements may be made with the Scoutmaster Brett McNealy, Committee Chair Jeff Sipes or Treasurer Cam Hubbard.
Please fill in form completely & bring to meeting or mail with a check payable to BSA TROOP 224
Yearly BSA registration and fees for all Adult Leaders are required by end of December. Troop 224 will cover cost for all the Leaders who return the filled in form indicating your intent to be an active leader in 2020. CRITICAL – You MUST have (a) an active Youth Protection Training (YPT) and (b) sign and submit the Background Authorization Check form.
Like prior years, the adult leader registration fees come from Troop operating funds. Please consider making a $50 donation to Troop 224. Your donation is very helpful in keeping the costs of registration of Scouts as low as possible and for purchases of special equipment.
Please fill in your Name & YPT completion date, complete the Background Check Authorization form and turn these in. If there are changes to contact information since Dec. 2018 please add them.
Mail or hand your completed form and any donation to Treasurer Cam.
Good evening, Pellissippi District. I wanted to pass along some information for your units. The Tuckaleechee District in Blount County is hosting a merit badge college and they have invited scouts from neighboring districts to participate if they wish. I’ve forwarded all the information they sent me. These merit badge colleges are always great opportunities for your youth to earn some additional merit badges.
For 60 years, Troop 224 has been providing the youth of Oak Ridge with a high adventure Scouting program. We put together a brochure that describes many of our activities and how you can join. Click the link to download a copy.
