Troop 422 is in need of merit badge counselors.  This is a great way to get involved and help the scouts advance in their journey to become Eagle.

Please consider the Eagle merit badges that are in most need, and follow up by adding a few STEM related badges to your list.

Philmont 2017 Update

Posted by mastarr on Feb 13 2017 - 6:32am

Philmont Crews 629N 1 and 2 are established and registered (there are openings, but we have 2 robust groups from T422 and VC422).  February is the month that all training should start and, with that in mind, we'll be scheduling a crew meeting in the next couple of weeks.  We will be discussing training schedules, equipment & logistics, crew leadership and general questions.

DUES!

Posted by mastarr on Jan 11 2017 - 9:03am

Dues are due on December 31st for the following year.  If you have not paid your dues yet, please bring a check to the next meeting.

Troop 422 Dues Structure

The dues structure is $100 per Scout due by December 31st.   Discounts are provided for each scout with at least one parent active in troop leadership.  Discounts are provided based on the prior year’s participation.

The discounts are:

 Active Merit Badge Counselor: for three or more badges: $10 discount for all scouts ($90 per scout). 

  •  Active means signed up and available for scouts to work on merit badges.

Active Scoutmaster/Assistant Scout Master:  $20 discount ($80 per scout)

  • Active means all training (online, indoor, outdoor) and ~30% participation in meetings/outings. 

Active Committee Member:  $20 discount ($80 per scout) 

  • Active means Youth Protection and committee challenge complete and active leader role such as Popcorn Kernel, Secretary, etc., or sits on 3 or more Board of Reviews.  Participation in at least 2 committee meetings.

Next year’s discount will be determined by the Committee based on Adults on the recharter list. This means parents must fill out an adult application and take youth protection.  There are a lot of ways to be involved in the troop, and we need your support to stay active and help the boys learn and advance.  A dues discount our way of saying thank you to those who donate their time.

Eagle Scouts- The Troop year following attaining Eagle, Eagle dues drop to 50% of what the Scout’s dues would be if the Scout were not an Eagle.

Secondary Registered Scout- This is when a Scout is Primary Registered with a Venture Crew and only participates with the Troop to advance. At present, the Troop will not charge any fees/dues for this Scout. The Troop will also not pay for any expenses associated with the Scout.

For scouts joining mid-year, dues will be prorated excluding the month the scout joined the troop and going through December. For example, if a scout joins in March, he would be charged for 9 months of dues (Apr.-Dec).

Adults – Registered adult leaders pay $5.

Overdue payment- After the first meeting in January, dues will be offset against the scout account.  If funds are available in a scout account, the account will be automatically debited to cover outstanding dues.  If funds are not available, the scout’s account will reflect the delinquency and the scout will not be permitted to advance in rank until the dues are paid.  The Treasurer will provide a list of all delinquent scout accounts to the Advancement Chair on a monthly basis. 

If you have a question about whether you qualify for a discount, please contact Meghan Starr or Sue Redmond.
