Spring Camporee Reimbursement
A couple more troop meetings and you’re out of time!  Troop reimbursement policy asks that all requests for reimbursement be turned in the month following the campout.  If you would like to be reimbursed for the spring camporee campout expenses, that means you have until the last meeting in May (the 25th) to complete the “Troop 750 – Reimbursement Request Form” (found on Troop 750 – Mason, OH website), attach receipts and give to our Treasurer, Mark Washington or Spencer Beeching.  If you are unable to make the meetings, please scan and email to Mark Washington at  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mark Washington via email or call (513) 234-8453.

Backpacking Events
For our Philmont crews, we have two events remaining.  Mr. Clabbers has sent several emails out, please be working hard on your own personal physical fitness!  Please make every effort to attend the two remaining events.  We are reaching a point where the crews may have to make very difficult decisions on attendance.  If you can not make the hikes, please make every attempt to contact your crew leader and talk to them.  We need you on the trail NOW.  Time is running out!   While these hikes are primarily intended to help prepare scouts and scouters attending Philmont, they are open to any scouts second year and above with the approval of Dan Clabbers, Gary Hayes, or Ben Zumkehr.

It’s That Time Of The Year!  Annual Swim Check Time
