Troop Gear

Posted on May 25 2019 - 10:06pm

With Thompsons Lake in our rearview mirror, I want to remind everyone that all troop gear should be taken care of ASAP after every outing to ensure it is ready for use on the next outing.  For gear boxes, that means cleaning ALL contents, whether used or not.  When your scout inevitably tells you they "already cleaned it at camp," imagine them washing your dinner dishes in the backyard.  With a garden hose.  Using an old sock for a sponge.  Then ask yourself it that's good enough.  Once you've rewashed everything, dry it thoroughly and repack the box.  For tents, it means setting them up immediately after the outing so they air out and dry out completiely, then repacking them.  Thank you!  (Mr. Kemp)

Troop Parent Resource Survey

Posted on May 25 2019 - 9:08pm

One of the many things that makes Troop 75 special is the level of family involvement and support.  In order to capitalize on the collective experience of our adults, we have come up with a troop resource survey.  It doesn't take long to fill out, and will help the troop out a lot.  Please click the following link to fill out your survey.  Thanks!  (Mr. Kemp)


Calling all Dutch Ovens!

Posted on May 11 2019 - 6:14pm

If anyone has any of the troop's dutch ovens, please be sure to return them at this week's meeting so we have them for Thompsons Lake.  Also, if anyone has a Dutch Oven (or two) that we can borrow for the camp out, we'd appreciate borrowing them.  Thanks!  (Mr. Kemp)
