2019 Scout Re-Registration

Posted on Oct 16 2018 - 11:08am

Scout re-registration for 2019 is now open!

Deadline: November 8, 2018

We are again using the PayPal system on the troop website, www.boyscouttroop230.org, to process the re-registrations. Since the re-registration deadline is 8 November 2018, I ask that you re-register your scout(s) now and not put this on a future "to do" list. If your scout is not going to re-register, please notify me by return e-mail or by phone at 503-635-6658. Please do not be shy about notifying me! If you prefer, you may bring a check payable to Troop 230 at a troop meeting or mail to me at 59 Wilbur St., LO 97034-3920.

The Troop 230 fee structure for 2019 is as follows: $120.00/one scout and $160.00/two scouts. The fee increases are based on increased Cascade Pacific Council (CPC) insurance costs for 2019. Each scout family will receive one subscription to Boy's Life magazine. Adult registered leaders do not pay a membership fee as it is covered by the troop. All registered adult leaders must be current with the new YPT curriculum in order to be re-registered.To re-register your scout(s), please follow these steps:
