11/25 Troop Meeting Notice – Change of Location – Swimming

Note that we will not meet at First Christian Church next Monday Nov. 25th. We
have the Edwardsville High School aquatic center reserved from 6:30 to
8:30. Troop 31 has set this up, we will share the pool with them and Troop
27.

Scouts and adults can swim, and those not interested in swimming can still
work advancement or other normal meeting activities. Bring swim suits and
towels. We can conduct swim tests, though no guarantee a summer camp will
accept, but it would count for Troop activities.

>> Each year the Troop must renew its membership charter with the Council. As it has been communicated from the Council to all registered scouters the 2020 annual membership renewal (re-charter) fee for scouts is increasing to $60 and to $36 for registered adults. Each scout is also responsible for Troop dues which are $10 per quarter. Scouts may pay for the entire year up front or on a quarterly basis. You may also elect to update your scout’s Boy’s Life subscription. Additionally, they can also pay 2020 Order of the Arrow (OA) Lodge dues at this time. Your scout may elect to have the funds deducted from their scout account (part of pay your own way).

>> Re-charter fee for adults and scouts along with first quarter dues are due by Monday, November 18th. Please fill out the lower portion of the attached form with your choices and turn in with payment at the 11/18 meeting. There is no meeting on Veterans Day the 11th

>> If you are a registered adult and have received an email notification that your Youth Protection Training (YPT) is scheduled to expire, you MUST take the new YPT, otherwise the online re-chartering system will not allow you to register as an adult. Go to www.my.scouting.org <www.my.scouting.org/> to complete the online training. An additional item that must also be completed by each registered adult this year is the criminal background check authorization form. This form MUST be completed and turned in with your payment in order to re-charter with the troop. If you have not yet completed the form please see Mr. Kupsky, Mr. Gill, or Mr. Dunning at an upcoming meeting to obtain a form. You may also print one online at tinyurl.com/y52jcrkw <tinyurl.com/y52jcrkw>.
