May Cast Iron Chef

Our next Cast Iron Chef Program for 7 to 7:30 on May 16th. We will be working on fajitas in the RLC kitchen.

As always, attendees will be given the opportunity to sample the food. All scouts are welcome to attend. It will be a great primer for new Scouts and will also help more experienced Scouts with some alternative menus. It can also come in handy for menu ideas for those boys working the Cooking Merit Badge.

Medical Forms DUE!

It is that time of year again to update your son’s and the troop adult medical forms. With Spring Break right around the corner, it is essential we have current medical information before the Spring Break campout, if your son is going. Please turn in Parts A & B immediately along with a new or updated Troop Medication Forms. You can find the forms on the troop website at http://t1000.org/medical-forms

You only need a new Part C for this camp-out if your current Part C is over a year old. I will be reviewing the forms for the boys and adults going on the Spring Break campout this week and will let you know if you need a new Part C. You can always go to Care Now to get a Part C filled out quickly. Make sure you bring all of your forms (Parts A & B) to your doctor or Care Now when you get this done.

PLEASE MAKE A COPY OF YOUR MEDICAL FORMS BEFORE TURNING IN for your records!

It is also mandatory you make a copy of your CURRENT health insurance card (front and back), if you have one, and submit with Parts A & B. Make sure you sign everywhere that is necessary on the form–Part A and the second page of Part B. The doctor must fill out Part C.

2016 Medical Forms are available here. Everyone needs to have a current, signed form for 2016 turned into our Medical Forms Coordinator, Sharon Luker.
