THANK YOU, THANK YOU to our Parent Volunteers!

Without the many troop volunteers, the troop could not have so many great activities, outings, and opportunities to earn Merit Badges. Thank you ASM and MB Counselors Michael Baker (Personal Fitness) and Charlie Luke Velasquez (Cycling) for organizing troop merit badge sessions.  Thank you to ASM Allan for taking a small group of Scouts to UC Berkeley for Nuclear Science MB opportunity.

BIG thank you, to Courtney Cameron for researching and reserving the many camp sites for the troop's monthly outings. Another big thank you to those that lead and attended ~ SM Thor and SM T2 plus ASM Allan, ASM Michael, ASM Dave, ASM Doug, ASM Tom A., as well as parents Chinnavuth, Seamus, Mark, John, Tim T for taking the troop to Angel Island for a service project, backpacking and camping!  AND to SM Thor and SM T2, plus ASM Allan, ASM Michael, ASM Dave, ASM Doug, ASM Jim B, ASM Eric, as well as parent Chinnavuth for taking the troop up to the Lava Beds National Monument for caving and camping!  These outings were epic and memorable!

Another big thank you to Ingrid and Cara for organizing the Spring Advancement Day on the USS Hornet!  The scouts had a great time, toured the ship, and earned at least one merit badge (many two merit badges)!

Annual Medical Health Forms and Authorization Forms

Posted on Apr 23 2015 - 3:29pm

During the month of April, the annual health forms and authorization forms are due.  All Boy Scouts need to do this as well as all Adults who participate in activities.   (Adults – if you are in doubt, complete the forms so that we have them on file in case you decide to go on an outing / activity with the troop.)  The links to the required paperwork can be found on the troop website under the “links” tab on the left, and then clicking on the “Boy Scout Form” link.

Everyone must hand in TWO HARD COPIES of Medical Form A and B  and Medical Insurance card (front and back) – no electronic copies. Form C (two copies) is required only if attending summer camp or high adventure camp.  Please note - if you are attending more than 1 summer camp/high adventure camp, then you will need to submit 3 copies of health forms A,B and C.

Authorization forms require 2 signatures.  You can give the forms to our Membership Chair, Eileen Dufau at a troop meeting, mail them or drop them off at her house.
