Wreath Fundraiser Selling Shifts Available

Below are the shifts that we still need volunteers for. Please keep in mind that this is our ONLY troop fundraiser annually. It helps keep us solvent while keeping the cost of the program down. We really need all the help we can get, from ALL of our Troop 106 family. For those scouts that did not purchase their required 3 wreaths (5 wreaths for a family with more than one scout), please purchase them before the beginning of your shift and make sure that it is marked down on the tally sheet so you get the credit

Please contact Gerry Mohr ([email protected]; 917-886-6501) if you have any questions or to sign up for a slot.

BSA Medical Parts A-B, Revisited

Hello All,

I still need a BSA Medical Part A-B for all members of the Troop. I especially need these medicals if you plan to go on our next trip in October.

I will be at tonite’s meeting and will take your medicals.

If you went to summer camp this past summer, I already have a copy of your medical and I don’t need an updated one.

Part A-B doesn’t need a doctor’s signature. Part B consists of two pages B1 and B2. We need both.

Troop 106 Guide Book-Revised

Hello Everyone,

This post is especially for the new Scouts and their families but is a good review for those of you who have been around for awhile. The Guidebook was developed to answer alot of questions you might have about the Troop and Scouting in general. Any questions, comments or concerns, please contact us.

I fixed the link to the Guidebook so you should be seeing the updated guidebook.

Annual Registration Fee

Hello Everyone,

The Troop Committee met and decided that we need to raise the Annual Registration Fee from $90.00 to $100.00.

Last year, The Boy Scouts of America raised the cost of registration to $72.00 with a one time fee of $25.00 for brand new, never before registered Scouts, while our registration cost remained at $90.00. This meant that when a new Scout registered, the Troop had to add $7.00 of its own money to register the Scout.

The Boy Scouts of America gets $72.00 of the $100.00 we collect. Most of that goes to the cost of insurance. The Troop uses the remainder to purchase awards, handbooks and other supplies for the unit to function.

The cost for an adult to join remains at $42.00. This covers insurance and background checks the Boy Scouts of America does randomly on every adult leader.

We know that the cost to join the Boy Scouts will increase in small increments over the coming years. We do not know what the cost will finally top out at.

Please do not hesitate to contact Anthony or myself if you have financial difficulties with the registration fees. Please do not let the registration fees be a barrier to being in the Boy Scouts. We will always find a way to ensure every youth who wants to be in Scouting can be.

BSA Medical Part A-B (Revised)

Hello Everyone,

The Boy Scouts of America requires us, to keep on file, a copy of the BSA Medical Parts A-B for future use. This medical doesn’t expire and you don’t need to go to the doctor to have it filled out.

Please send me a copy of it, [email protected], when you are done and I will upload it to the Troop’s G-Drive where only a few of the leaders have access to it.

Revised Post:

If your son went to summer camp this year, you do not need to send me a new Part A-B since it’s is included in the summer camp medical and has already been saved to the Troops Google Drive.

Troop Committee

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Troop 106 Committee 2021-2022! Due to Covid restrictions, we moved our meetings to Thursday nights but we were limited as to how many people we could have at the meetings; just the Committee members were invited to attend.

Since the restrictions have been lifted, I’ve moved the Committee Meetings back to Friday nights; usually the second Friday of every month, with a few exceptions. Please see the Troop calendar, https://troop106gnyc.org/calendar/ for more information.

Every Committee member as well as all parents are welcome to attend. The Troop Committee is the business end of the Troop. We help the Troop leadership carry out their program for the youth. Some of the things we do are fundraising, advancement, securing a location to meet and recruiting adult leadership for the Troop. If your interested in joining the Troop Committee or the Troop Leadership, please see me at one of our meetings.

We will be meeting downstairs in the bible study room and masks are required as per BSA rules. If this location becomes too small for us, we will consider other locations. Our first Committee Meeting will be Friday, September 17 at 7:30PM. The meetings usually last until 9:00PM.

Hope to see everyone there!

First Day of Camp

When you arrive on Sunday, August 8 @ 11:00 AM, please know that the camp doesn’t feed us until dinner. Please eat lunch before arriving at camp or bring something to eat for lunch once you get to camp.

Please see the Senior Patrol Leader, Anthony Zambrano for tent assignments. Once we are settled into our tents, our next stop is medical re-check. After everyone has been checked in we go to the pool for the Dock Test. The purpose of the Dock Test is to your swimming ability for access to the pool and lake.

After the Dock Test we tour the camp areas so everyone learns the daily routine. Then back to our camp site to prepare for the opening day BBQ and camp opening ceremonies.

I will see everyone on Sunday. I’m leaving for camp on Thursday. Any questions, comments or concerns please let me know.
