New to the Troop? Get a Buddy!

Parent "Buddies" Now Available

If you attended the new parent orientation and still have a few questions, consider requesting a troop "Parent Buddy". A parent buddy is a parent in the troop who has a Scout a little further down the trail to Eagle. They can give you information about uniforms, badge placement, how to use the website, equipment recommendations, where to find answers to other Scouting questions, etc. Or perhaps just someone to talk to or word of encouragement along with way is all you need. Sign up now to have a troop parent buddy contact you. Just send an email to Brenda Johnson.

Wet Tent? Dry It Out Today

Troop Tent Care Tips

Scouts who took a tent home after the camp out have a big responsibility since tents are the most expensive single item we own. If you read these simple steps below and take care of the tent as soon as you get home you will avoid having a moldy, mildewed tent. Here's what you need to do:

- Dry It: Hang the tent in your garage. The best way is to string some rope between the garage door rails and hand the tent and fly over them. Once they dry out they are easy to clean. Avoid ripping or tearing the tent or fly as you hing it up.

- Clean It: Once the tent is dry you can clean it. Use a broom to clean off the outside of the tent while still hanging. Then you can set up the tent in your garage and sweep out the inside. Make sure both the tent and fly are free from dirt.

- Read It: There are additional tent care tips here. Please read them and follow the instructions.

- Return It: Make sure you return the tent no later than Monday, April 21st.

IMPORTANT: Above all DO NOT let the tent lay around wet or forget about it. If you do not care for the tent today it will mildew and be useless. Take 10 minutes to follow these simple instructions and you will save the troop money, and have a tent you will enjoy taking on the next camp out.
