FREE PHYSICALS!

Posted on May 24 2017 - 7:04pm

Tuesday, May 30, 7:00pm
Great Opportunity! Troop 215 has graciously opened their doors for area troops to come and get free physicals on this night. Therefore, we are not meeting at New Hope, but instead will meet at the Life Center of First Presbyterian Church at 7:00. The address is 302 West Whitner St. in Anderson (it is the left side, gym area, of the main church building across the road from where Troop 215 meets in their huts). They have got a medical team coming from the Clemson area to perform physicals for troops at no cost to you!!
**First, you will need a permission form to allow the physicals to be done. I have attached one that you can print off, have parents sign and then bring with you. If you cannot print it out, just hand copy it and have parents sign it. Be sure to bring it with you as they will not do the physical without it!!
**Second, you will need all three medical forms (A,B, & C). A & B is to be filled out by parents and includes immunization record which may be attached if you already have a copy of them. C form is what the medical team will complete and sign (you can complete the top of it). They may want to take a look at A & B before doing the physical, so be sure to bring all of them. I have attached these in a pdf file that can be typed into if you want to. If doing this, type all info in, then print it out to bring with you to the Life Center.
DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY FOR FREE PHYSICALS and REMEMBER: do NOT go to New Hope for a meeting.....we will be at First Pres Life Center this TUESDAY!!

*Camp Old Indian cost of $270 is due by this Friday, May 19 in the council office. Those who have sold enough camp cards are ok. Those who have not need to have payment Tuesday if you want to avoid the $30 late fee. Those who have not chosen their camp schedule need to do so as soon as possible. Also, don't forget that everyone will need the Medical forms filled out and turned in and the C form will require a doctor's authorization. May 30, we will be going to Troop 215 at 8:00pm for free camp physicals...will check to see how many they can accommodate. **CAMPING this weekend is a GO! The primitive area at Oconee State Park is booked, but we found another at a place called Mile Creek County Park Near Six Mile. It is small, so if you have a hammock that will save some space...weather is supposed to be nice. We will be close to lake so fishing will be available (bring your own gear) and there are other possibilities in the area(waterfalls, sliding rocks, swimming maybe) so bring swimsuits and towels. We will plan meals Tuesday with Jackson and Michael cooking three meals on Saturday for their first class rank. Jaylon and Jeremiah J still need to make grocery list, shop and list prices if we can arrange that Thursday evening. **Congratulations to Aidan for being elected for the OA.
