Troop Enrollment and Dues for 2021

Posted on Nov 18 2020 - 4:13pm

Hi everyone,

It’s time for us to re-charter the troop for 2021. Sign-up is available online, and runs through next Tuesday, November 24. This year the troop will only be collecting the amount we need to send “up the chain” to the council to cover each scout’s enrollment. As usual, adult registration fees will be paid by the troop.

The sign-up page can be found here: https://www.boyscouttroop230.org/node/7456

You will find a link to our “Payments” page, where you can choose either the $78 base line option, or the $90 option with subscription to Boys Life.

If you have financial difficulties meeting the dues amount, please contact me and the troop can provide confidential support.

If you miss the deadline, the only impact is that you’ll need to fill out a new BSA application. All of your records and progress are retained.

Please contact me with any questions.

What: Service Hours Opportunity - Scott's Eagle Project

Activity Information:
Scott's project is the construction of five tepees for the backyard of the Marylhurst School. Each tepee can accommodate three to four children. The tepees provide a fun play space, as well as shade and shelter for the students. Each tepee will be constructed with bamboo poles and covered in a canvas that will be coated in a water-proofer. Thanks for your time.

Saturday we will spend our time waterproofing the canvas used to create the tepees. Sunday we will be building the actual tepees. On Sunday; pizza will be provided between the two sessions. Please be sure to register and let Scott know so an appropriate amount can be ordered.

Location: Waluga West Park located at 15775 Waluga Dr, Lake Oswego, OR 97035

We are planning to host a TTFC event that would be great from several different perspectives.

First of all, it will get us out the house and all together. Secondly, it will provide for an opportunity for all scouts to get rank advancement completed. Several of the more senior scouts in the troop committed to be there to teach and provide guidance for the younger scouts and sign off on advancement items completed.

We will be meeting at the covered tables.
