Service Project at Quail Hill

Quail Hill
Service Project

 

Everyone,

I wanted to make a specific appeal to try and get scouts out to Quail Hill for the service project this Saturday

We had a little incident at Quail Hill for the Klondike Derby and helping out would help Troop 122's relationship with the ranger and beautify one of the best local places we have for Scouting

So, please come out - just for the day if you'd like.  The weather will be great and the food will be even greater.  It will be a lot like a picnic.

We need a  permission slip due this Thursday night at the troop meeting.

Eat breakfast before you go and the troop will provide lunch, dinner and Sun breakfast

We will meet at the school at 7am on Sat, head to Quail Hill, work for a few hours and then do some Snuffy Hollow brush up.  

Your in Scouting,

Will Purcell
Scoutmaster
Troop 122, Big Bears

Scout Medical Forms

Dear Parents,

It is that time of year to begin getting ready for summer camp.  The troop will be attending Camp Minsi July 22-28.  All scouts attending summer camp are required to have up to date medical forms that can be downloaded from the BSA website.   Completed forms are due Thursday June 7.   If your scout is not attending summer camp please submit parts A and B as these forms are required to be kept up to date by the troop for monthly campouts.

Please do not use any previous forms that you may have saved.  Parts A and B are filled out by parents.  Part C must be filled out by the scout's physician.  Scouts need a current will visit.  If you cannot schedule a doctor's visit before June 7 please hand in Parts A and B with a note attached letting me know that a doctor visit is scheduled and submit Part C after the doctor has filled out the form.  

Food Allergy & Special Dietary Accommodations - If your scout has any food allergies or other dietary restrictions, a form has to be completed and returned to Camp Minsi at least two weeks prior to arrival at camp.  The dining hall staff are able to accommodate special dietary needs in two ways: (1) by providing enough variety in the menu and (2) by making substitutions for some (although not all) menu items in order to give Scouts well-rounded meals.
If you require this form or have questions, please email me at jmurphy000205@gmail.com

Some reminders when filling out the forms:

Part A
You may list Will Purcell 732-207-0896 as an adult authorized to take your scout to and from events.

Part B
Unit Leader  Will Purcell 732-207-0896
Monmouth Council  Unit No 122
Make sure you fill in the insurance information and attach a copy of the front and back of your insurance card.  Forms submitted without the insurance card copy are incomplete.
You may attach a copy of the scout's immunization record (usually available at well visit) or have the doctor fill it out.

Completed forms can be put in an envelope marked to my attention and handed in at a troop meeting.

Any questions please contact me.

Yours in Scouting,

Jeanne Murphy   jmurphy000205@gmail.com

On Saturday March 24th, 9am-5pm, will be the bulk of the project, the more scouts that help the quicker it’ll get done.

On Sunday March 25, 9am-1pm, will be the last of anything that we don’t finish the day before.

Medical Parts A & B required for camping

New Scouts,
In order to go on regular monthly camping trips, all new scouts who have not submitted medical forms should go on line and print out Parts A & B, have your parents fill them out and bring them to the meeting.

These parts do not require a doctor's visit.

Part C will be needed for summer camp and does require a physical and doctor's signature.

Yours in Scouting,
