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 Benton

Troop Basics

Annual Dues

The annual dues are set by the Troop Committee each year prior to the beginning of the scout year (2010-11 dues: $140) . These funds are used for chartering expenses, the purchase of gas for troop trips, van rentals, awards and advancement supplies, patrol equipment, Courts of Honor expenses, some leadership training, and other miscellaneous administrative expenses. Dues should be paid to the troop treasurer by the end of
September of each new scouting year, or upon joining for new Scouts. The more successful our fundraising activities, the less we are charged for dues.

Troop 39 is committed to providing financial assistance to Scouts and families for which dues and other expenses represent a financial hardship. Scholarship information can be obtained from the troop committee chairperson or by contacting the troop treasurer.

Troop Communication


To be properly informed, Troop 39 has adopted three primary methods for contacting each Scout and family including website, email, and the troop Google email groups.
Our troop website is http://www.troop39nc.org. It is updated frequently and often within hours of receiving information.  Scouts & parents can find copies of most troop printed resources
to download, announcements or changes to troop activities, information and resources for advancement and merit badges, and notes and photos from various trips.
Patrol Leaders or their parents will notify patrol members by phone tree when important information needs to be disseminated immediately. Traditionally, this is primarily used when the troop will return more than 30 minutes after the scheduled return time from an activity or trip. The Senior Patrol Leader
or designate will phone his parent. That parent will contact each patrol leader’s parent or designate, who in turn calls each member of the patrol. One adult leader’s spouse will contact each affected leader’s spouse as needed. When in doubt about what is expected, contact your Patrol Leader first.
Please join our Google group to receive email updates on schedules, news, etc. Visit the www.troop39nc.org site, find the “Contact Us” tab to join the different email lists.  Individual lists are available for general troop families & supporters, adult leaders, junior leaders, the troop committee, and Eagle Scout Mentors. List subscribers can send a note to one central address and reach each member of the group. This prevents each family or leader from updating an ever-changing personal address book as subscribers manage their own accounts.
For problems, suggestions, or concerns about this website, please contact Webmaster.

Trip/Activity Transportation

Troop 39 will use a variety of transportation options to insure that our Scouts are safe when being transported to and from any and all troop trips.

Parents are not covered under the BSA policy unless approved by the Committee and their personal driver information is registered with the troop. Each personal vehicle used must have seatbelts for each passenger. Parents driving other Scouts, even to and from meetings, accept liability on their personal insurance.

The Troop Committee budgets a certain amount each year to cover van rentals, if necessary. These funds are raised for the troop through fundraisers and partially through Troop Dues.
