Troop 75 Tent Program

Posted on Apr 17 2021 - 7:20pm

Our tent roll out is going great!  We already have 17 scouts who have requested a tent.

Thank you for those who have completed the tent survey. If you haven't done so what, and would like to pick up a new Troop 75 Tent on Wednesday, please do the following.
1. Complete the survey noting your interest here:  This will help us know if we need to order more tents and/or prioritize those going camping on the April 23-24 campout. 
2. Complete the attached Scout Tent Agreement and bring it with a check for $100 written to Troop 75 on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.  
If this presents a hardship, or if you have questions, please reach out to your scoutmaster and we will work something out.  Thank you!  (Mr. Kemp)

BSA Health Forms

Posted on Apr 17 2021 - 7:20pm

It's that time of year again.  Flowers are blooming, yards are getting green, and we are once again collecting health forms!  Each scout and adult scouter needs to have an updated BSA health form on file.  By "updated" we mean it has to be less than a year old since it was signed.  For outings less than 72 hours, we just need Parts A, B1 and B2, which do not require your physician to fill anything out.  For summer camp, we will also need Part C, which is the portion filled out by your physician.  You can find a fillable PDF of the health form here:

Patty Ells will be at the meeting this week to collect health forms.  If it's been more than a year since you turned in a form, please bring a new one to the meeting.  If you're not sure if you have an updated one on file, bring one to the meeting just in case.  Please be sure to include a photocopy of your insurance card with your health form.  Finally, please keep a copy of the form for your own records, in case we ever need a duplicate made.  Thank you!  (Mr. Kemp)

Troop 75B - Assistant Scoutmasters Needed

Posted on Apr 11 2021 - 12:31am
One of the jobs of the scoutmaster is to recruit assistant scoutmasters to help keep our scouting program strong and vibrant.  Assistant scoutmasters help deliver the promise of scouting, and ensure that we always have appropriate adult leadership for all our outings and events.  Simply put, the program doesn't work without the work of the ASMs.

Troop 75B currently has six dedicated ASMs.  Given the awesome growth we've experienced over the last year, we could really use a few more.  We can use ASMs at all levels, but we especially need more at the middle-school level.  We currently have two ASMs for the five middle school patrols.  Ideally I'd like to have one for each patrol.  The basic criteria for becoming an ASM is a desire to help the scouts of the troop get the most of the program, and develop into responsible citizens.  You don't need prior scouting experience, just a willingness to learn.  (If you can make a good cup of camp coffee, that goes a long way, too!)

The reason we have so many ASMs is so that no one individual gets overloaded with responsibility.  I can't make every event or meeting, and I don't expect anyone else to.  Having enough ASMs means that no one person's schedule limits what the scouts can do.  It's also critical, now that we are doing more small group activities, to ensure we have enough adult leaders.

Please let me know if you'd be interested in becoming an ASM for the troop.  If you would like to learn more about it, please give me a call and I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. 

Thank you!  (Mr. Kemp)
