Time to Pay Annual Dues

Posted on Nov 29 2015 - 6:55pm

The Troop will be completing its annual charter soon, so it is time to pay annual dues for 2016. The Troop Committee has determined that dues will remain at the same level for 2016 as they have been for the last several years. Included in each scout's dues payment is registration for the year with BSA, insurance, and advancement costs (merit badges, rank advancement, etc.) Dues are $80 per scout and $70 per second scout from the same family (brother/step-brother.) Registered adults will pay $24 for BSA registration.

Now that our popcorn orders are filled and sorted, it's time to deliver those orders to customers and collect payment. Payment of the total sold by each scout is due on November 24. Mr. Ward will not be at the meeting. However, checks (one check made payable to Troop 143) can be given to Nate Ward or mailed. If you have not yet paid, please make arrangements to do so right away. If you have questions, contact Mr. Ward.

Winter Sports Weekend Set at Timberline

Posted on Nov 29 2015 - 6:54pm

Back by popular demand is a trip to the Timberline Four Seasons Resort in Davis, West Virginia for skiing or snowboarding. Troop 143 is scheduled for December 11-13 for the event. The cost is $109 per person which includes two day lift ticket, ski equipment rental (skis, boots, and poles), a beginner ski lesson, two nights lodging, and five meals. Helmets are required by BSA and are extra. Those wishing to snow board must bring their own equipment or pay separate rental fees. Our deposit has been paid, so all registrants must pay the Troop for their fee; we can add to our numbers if anyone else not already registered wishes to participate. Also, a BSA medical form is REQUIRED. Please contact Mr. Buzzie with any questions.
