We Welcome You To Troop 650!

Welcome to Troop 650. We have many exciting things to offer your boys to get them excited for the Scouting program, such as monthly campouts, fundraisers (such as the BBQ and campcard fundraisers to help them pay their dues or to help them go to Summer Camp), community service projects, and so much more. Boys will have a very fun experience in this troop, and they'll learn some very important things too. For more details, come check us out at Pinewood Presbyterian Church on Mondays (except school holidays) at 7:00pm. 

Please be aware that access to this site is limited to Troop 650 members only. To get access, you must be fully registered with the Troop. ~Thanks

Health Record Part A & B

Posted by Terri Dollinger on Jun 14 2016 - 6:13pm

Summer Camp health forms A, B & C have all been turned in with the exception of 4 individuals. As to the other scouts and leaders in the troop not attending summer camp...now is the time to update your A & B form and turn it in next Monday. Form A & B are completed by the participant/parent...no doctor's signature required. Forms completed and turned in next Monday will ensure you are covered for all next year's scouting year weekend and day activities. If you cannot bring your updated forms next Monday, please bring them with you to the Troop Committee meeting planned August 8th. Our first activity is scheduled August 19th and the majority cannot attend due to expired health records.

Not sure if the troop has your health record or if it has expired. You can always check the dates by going to "My Profile" or Troop Roster and selecting Medical Forms. Blank forms are available on line http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/HealthandSafety/ahmr.aspx

Troop Committee Meeting - Annual Plan UPDATE

Posted by Terri Dollinger on Jun 7 2016 - 9:09pm

Meeting was postponed until June 13th. Scouts, add your comments on what you would like to do. Is there a merit badge you would like the troop to focus on, a camping location you want to visit? Make your desires known.

On June 6th is the troop committee meeting to develop the annual plan.  This can be a lengthy process.  With some work up front, we can have a completed and approved plan at the end of the meeting or we can have a first draft requiring additional meetings for a final product.  Mrs. Dollinger is willing to collate the information into the first draft for review prior to the committee meeting.  The following information is needed: (need dates and any other details)

Scout Elections and Leadership Position Review

Posted by Terri Dollinger on May 25 2016 - 12:08am

Troop elections are planned for June 6th. If you can't be there, please let Scoutmaster Murphy know your vote for SPL.

Leadership books need to be turned in to Mrs. Dollinger so they can be prepared for the new scout leader. As a reminder, scouts holding leadership positions should have their monthly check off sheet reviewed towards credit of the time requirements for their rank advancement. Remember, the time does not have to be consecutive. There can be gaps and it doesn't have to be the same leadership position. You may want to keep your check off sheet even after the requirement is signed off in your book. It is the Board of Reviews responsibility to ensure the rank requirements have been completed. Your request for advancement can be denied due to your lack of response, or unpreparedness to questions asked about how you satisfied the leadership requirement over the required time frame. Your check off sheet will help remind you.

TroopMaster Web

Scout parents are often interested in what advancement, training or other records the troop has in their database.  Sometimes you just want to compare the scout handbook with the troops records.  Or you are out camping with your son, who forgot his handbook (again) and you wonder what requirements he could be working on during the campout.  Well you have two ways to check this information online.  First is to go to TroopMaster Web site. The link is located on the top right corner of this webpage.  OR you can download the TM Mobile app for your smartphone. It's free.  In both cases, you will be asked to enter your user ID and password.
