Troop 106- Weekly Updates

Good Morning, Hope all is well and everyone is staying safe and Healthy.

Some good news to share: New York City as of Monday, removed all of their COVID zones.

What that means for us is that we can have up to 100 people at our meetings.

Tomorrow night, Friday March 26th, we will a regular meeting. The Patrol Leader’s Council has decided that the scouts will be wearing their CLASS B shirts the last meeting of the month. Class B includes the Troop 106 Summer Camp Tee Shirts or the Polo Shirt. If anybody doesn’t have a Class B please let me know.

Also, I will have sign-up sheets for Summer Camp. The dates for Summer Camp are August 8th to the 14th and August 15th to the 21st. The scouts can come for one or two weeks. Since we didn’t have Summer Camp last year, we would like to recommend that all of the scouts come for two weeks this year. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

Hope to see everyone tomorrow night!

Summer Camp Medical Forms-Follow Up

It has come to my attention that we previously asked everyone to prepare medical forms back in September 2020. Please keep in mind that we only asked for Parts A-B and no doctors examinations were required. Some of you sent me completed to almost completed medicals. If you’re not sure what you sent me and/or what you owe me, please contact me and I’ll let you know what I have.

Summer Camp Medical Forms

Hello everyone and it’s that time of year again; time to think about summer camp. We’ve received word that NYS will open camping in June 2021 and GNYC is preparing to schedule summer camp this year. With that said, we need to start thinking about doing our BSA Long Term Camping Medicals.

As in the past, please only use the medical form I provide you in this post. DO NOT go online and find one and download it. The one I’m posting is the most recent medical form available. With everything going on the past year, I do not know if TMR will accept an outdated medical form. As far as I know, there has been no indication that the medical form will be updated due to Covid. If they update the medical form, I will inform everyone.

When filling out the medical, please fill in every space on it. Leave nothing blank. If the question does not apply to you, please write “N/A” in the blank space. If you’re not sure of a question, please reach out to me.

The medical form comes in three parts, Part A, Part B1, Part B2 and Part C. You prepare Part A, Part B1 and Part B2. Your doctor prepares Part C. Do not forget to provide health insurance information on Part B1 and do not forget to sign the form where appropriate. In addition to the BSA Medical, NYS requires that you prepare the Meningococcal Meningitis Vaccination Response Form. You can prepare this form yourself and doesn’t require a doctor to do so. GNYC Councils requires that you prepare the Over The Counter Medication Form. The form lists over the counter medication, such as aspirin and Benadryl, which can be given to you son, with your and your doctor’s consent. This form MUST be signed by your doctor. Last but not least, I need copies of the health insurance cards, front and back, that covers your son.

When the forms are completed, please scan them and email them to me at [email protected] or have your son bring them to a Friday night meeting. I will review them and tell you if they’re correct or if there is missing information so that it can be fixed before summer camp. Normally the Troop Leaders will bring the medical forms to summer camp and walk your son through medical re-check. If you decide against providing me with the medical forms, prior to arrival at camp, then you will be responsible for bringing the medical forms to camp and waiting for your son to pass through medical re-check, before you can go home; in case the medical team has any questions for you regarding the medical forms.

For security reasons, at the end of summer camp, I will return the original medical forms to you. I scan all the medical forms into the Troop’s Google Drive, so that the medical forms can be available for the year’s weekend camping trips. I delete the previous year’s medical forms and delete the scans from my computer.

Troop 106- Weekly Updates

Good Morning Everyone, Hope all is well and that you are enjoying this beautiful weather we are having.

We are having a regular meeting, tomorrow March 12th.

The theme for March is First Aid. We continue to work on the Rank Requirements and the Merit Badge dealing with First Aid.

Just a reminder as mentioned last week, 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.
