Tar Heel 10 Miler road race

Dear Scouts, Parents and Leaders,

Our troop has been asked to help out as race water-stop helpers for the Tar Heel 10 Miler road race on Saturday morning, April 26. We will hand out water to runners at a stop in front of St. Thomas More Church. They have asked us to be there at 6:30 am (yes, that’s correct) and say until 10 am.



All the proceeds go to two great local causes that make a positive impact on thousands of people- the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center and the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA.



NOTE: These hours count toward CHCCS service learning hours as well as troop hours for the President’s Volunteer Service Award.



EVEN BETTER NOTE: The first five people who volunteer and show up by 6:30 receive a free race t shirt. Quick Color Solutions will also provide BOJANGLES biscuits for our volunteers before the race (reserve your favorite with me when you RSVP) as well as a post-race meal at Suttons Drugstore when we’re done. You can then go home and nap that afternoon with a full belly. J



Volunteers can park at STM Church. If needed, I can give anyone a ride home who might need it. I will also



This is not a mandatory attendance event, but I guarantee you our troop will be helping out a great cause, we’ll have some fun together cheering on our favorite participating runners, and did I say “eating some irresistibly good food too?” BO TIME starts at 6:30 am. Yours will be waiting…



Email me back if you or your scout can help out. I know it’s early in the morning, but it’s a great cause.



Sincerely yours,



Glenn

Troop 39 Uniform Standards

National BSA Uniform Expectations


Uniforming is one of the eight Methods used to accomplish the Scouting Aims of Character, Citizenship, & Fitness.

The uniform makes the Scout troop visible as a force for good and creates a positive youth image in the community. Boy Scouts is an action program and wearing the uniform is an action that shows each Scout’s commitment to the aims and purposes of Scouting. The uniform gives the Scout identity in a world brotherhood of youth who believe in the same ideals.

The uniform is practical attire for Scout activities and provides a way for Scouts to wear the badges that show what they have accomplished.

The Boy Scout Uniform has long served as an expression of a Scout’s friendliness to all other Scouts regardless of whom they are or where they’re from. The uniform represents Scouting’s spirit of Equality and democracy, and identifies a boy as a brother to every other Scout. Wearing the uniform promotes comradeship, loyalty to one’s patrol and troop, and public recognition of membership in the Boy Scouts of America.

When to Wear the Uniform


Boy Scouts and Scout leaders proudly wear the full uniform for all ceremonial and indoor activities including troop meetings, boards of review, and courts of honor. The uniform should also be worn during special outdoor occasions, such as flag ceremonies, Scout shows, and special times during summer camp.

When Not To Wear the Uniform


Do not wear the uniform while selling a commercial product or service, even for Scout fundraising purposes, such as popcorn.

Do not wear the uniform in situations that might mistakenly imply an endorsement by the BSA of a product, service, political candidate, or philosophy. Scouts and Scouters are encouraged to take part in political matters as private individuals but not while wearing the uniform.

Do not wear the uniform while engaged in any activity that could dishonor or discredit the Boy Scouts of America, the uniform, or the person wearing it.

Troop 39 Uniform Expectations


We are a Boy Scout troop and we wear the Scout uniform with pride. All troop functions require wearing the Scout uniform unless specifically announced otherwise (e.g. mulch or yard work as work clothes are more appropriate).

Being “in uniform” means being in complete uniform. This includes wearing the official shirt, pants, socks, and belt. Any non-uniform items (including non-scouting hats or earrings) must not be worn with either Class A or B uniform. Parents can shop online for uniform parts and all BSA items online at http://www.scoutstuff.org/cgi/catalog.

The Occoneechee Council Scout Shop in Raleigh also allows parents to shop by phone with a credit card and will mail the item(s) to your home. The Occoneechee Council scout shop in Raleigh is located at 3231 Atlantic Avenue and their phone number is (919) 472-8442. Directions are listed on the next page.

A Scout attending a Scout function must be in uniform at all times. He may be sent home if he is not in FULL uniform. The Scout uniform may not be worn at times other than during official approved Scout functions. On camping trips we take clothes appropriate to the weather, but the uniform is always worn to and from the campsite. We also wear the uniform during church services.

The uniform to be worn will be announced by the Senior Patrol Leader.

Class A Uniform


  • Official Boy Scout shirt (either long or short sleeve) with olive epaulets
  • Scout trousers (short or long)
  • Scout belt
  • Scout socks
  • Appropriate shoes
  • Neckerchief slide
  • An official Troop 39 neckerchief and set of uniform patches are given to each
    new Scout. 

    • Replacement neckerchiefs can be purchased for $25.
    • Neckerchiefs are never sold or traded.
    • If a Scout leaves the Troop before earning the rank of Eagle, he must return the troop neckerchief.
    • Replacement patches for the Class A uniform can be purchased as follows: the community rocker – $3, the troop number – $1, and the year bar – $1.
    • New members receive a complete set as part of their troop fees.

Class B Uniform


  • Troop 39 approved T-shirt
  • Scout trousers (short or long)
  • Scout belt
  • Scout socks
  • Appropriate shoes
  • Scouting T-shirts other than official Troop 39 (e.g. camp, high adventure etc.) are not acceptable.
  • If a scout wears a hat, it must be a Scout hat approved by the PLC.
  • Scouts new to Troop 39 will receive the following items as part of their troop fees: one neckerchief, and a set of uniform patches.

Patch Placement


Parents are encouraged to use the BSA Insignia Guide for proper patch placement.

Uniform Exchange


Troop 39 maintains a uniform exchange that allows new Scouts and Scouts who outgrow their current uniform to exchange it with uniform parts that have been turned in by other Scouts.

Uniform Tailoring and Patch Attachment


Adult leaders (who were not taught to sew by their mothers)  have relied on Oriental Tailors at 99 South Elliot Road in Chapel Hill to have uniforms altered and add patches.

Personal Camping Equipment


Each patrol is issued a set of camping equipment and is responsible for its upkeep and proper maintenance. Patrols are issued camp stoves, basic pots and pans, cookware, a patrol box, and a lantern. Troop 39 will provide tents for new Scouts to use, but as a general rule, the troop does not provide tents for camping. While each Scout does not need to have his own tent, Patrol Leaders are expected to make sure each Scout attending
a camping trip has a tent in which to sleep.

Scouts receive a 10% discount off camping equipment purchased at Townsend & Bertram camping store in Car Mill Mall in Carrboro if they have their BSA membership card.

Scouts are encouraged to have the following personal gear for camping trips:
Clothing

  • 4 changes of underwear
  • at least 2 changes of socks
  • extra clothing (appropriate to season)
  • jacket
  • hat
  • rain gear
  • extra shoes

Meals

  • deep bowl and/or plate
  • cup, knife, fork, and spoon
  • water bottle or canteen

Sleeping

  • Warm sleeping bag, or lightweight bag with extra blankets
  • sleeping pad, or extra blankets for underneath sleeping bag

Other

  • flashlight
  • personal hygiene items
  • small towel
  • Bandaids / first aid kit
  • notepad and pen or pencil

New Scouts and parents are encouraged to talk with experienced troop members and parents about specific types of personal gear, brands, preferences, and suggestions before purchasing equipment. Items such as tents and sleeping bags can last many years so it is wise to make the best initial purchase.

Patrol Food on Trips


Each trip, there will be a designated patrol member responsible for purchasing food based on the menu derived by the Patrol Leader. That patrol member should be reimbursed by patrol members no later than the Wednesday meeting following the trip. Scouts who make a commitment to a trip will be held accountable for reimbursing the patrol member who is responsible for the food regardless of whether they are able to attend the trip or not.
