Troop 106 Weekly Updates

Good Evening, hope all is well and everyone is enjoying this nice weather.

The theme for March is First Aid. We will be working on the Rank Requirements and the Merit Badge dealing with First Aid.

On Friday night March 19th, we will be having our next Parent’s Night. As of right now, it will be virtual because we are still in a yellow zone. If things change, it will be an in-person event. The main topic of discussion will be Summer Camp.

That’s it for now. Hope to see all the scouts tomorrow night at the meeting.

Be well, stay safe.


Troop 106 Updates

Good Evening Everyone! Hope all is well and everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather we are having.

We are continuing with our monthly theme of camping tomorrow night and will be focusing on the Outdoor Code and making Fire Starters.

We will also be conducting an Order of the Arrow Election for those who are eligible.

Finally, we will be having our monthly PLC Meeting following the troop meeting.

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night.


February is Re-Chartering Month

Every year, in February we, as a Troop, must register the youth and adult membership with the Boy Scouts of America. This process is called Re-Chartering in that the document provided to our sponsor, Trinity Lutheran is called a Charter which, states that they sponsor us, we are members of the Boy Scouts of America and each and every one of us is covered by the Boy Scouts of America insurance.

The cost for Re-Chartering is based on the amount of people we register; youth and adults. The cost to register a youth member is $90.00 and for the adults is $42.00. Check made out to “Troop 106” or cash. You can bring it to our next Friday night meeting. Please contact Henry Zalak, [email protected], if you are unsure of your paid/unpaid status.

We understand that there are financial difficulties everyone is experiencing, Troop 106 is no different. If you are experiencing financial difficulties please speak to either Anthony or me and we can handle it. Money should not be the barrier between the youth of our community and Scouting. If you do not contact us and do not pay the registration fee, we will attempt to contact you. If this is unsuccessful we have to remove you from the Charter.

If you are an adult member, not only must you pay the registration fee but you must prepare the Disclosure Agreement I post about a month ago. I’ll re-attach it below. We cannot register you without it. In addition you must have your Youth Protection Training updated. Please log into Scouting.Org and check. The system used to Re-Charter will not register you without updated YPT. Lastly, if you are a new adult member, please be sure that you prepared an application to join Scouting. If you are unsure about any of these requirements, please contact me.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns don’t hesitate to contact Anthony or me.
