Another Swim Test Opportunity 

Those scouts that were unable to take the swim test recently during the school spring break will have another opportunity soon. Scouts that need a swim test must let Mr. Smith know at the troop meeting on May 3rd. He will be scheduling another in the near future.

Water Activities, Summer Camp and Shirts 

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter and enjoying the holiday break.

Reminder that there is no troop meeting on Thursday April 12 however swim tests are on Wednesday April 11 for any scouts that have not previously taken the BSA swim test either with our troop or at summer camp. Swim tests are required for any water activity and we have two coming up before summer camp this year. These are the White Water Rafting Trip on April 29th and the Overnight Canoe and Camping Trip on the Delaware River taking place on the weekend of May 18th. Signups for the Swim Tests and these two water activities are available online.

A sign up for Summer Camp 2012 in July is also available online; this reminder is especially for those recent crossover scouts where signups so far have been light. If your scout is planning to attend camp this year please visit the troop website to signup online as soon as possible.

For those scouts that attended the family dinner in February and received a troop shirt that did not fit we’ll be collecting those shirts and arranging for replacements. Please bring the shirts to the troop meeting on April 19th where they will be collected and order the correct size that you need. The troop will order any additional necessary shirts and distribute at a future troop meeting. And speaking of shirts for those scouts attending summer camp we’ll again be providing two t-shirts free of charge for camp and parents will have the option of ordering additional shirts if they desire. Ordering information for everyone will be available on the troop website in the near future.

Thanks everyone and enjoy the rest of your holiday break.
