Troop 493 Tidbits August 7, 2019 

Meeting – Fox Sprinkler clean up – Mr. Hurley will be leading this week’s meeting and we’ll be performing some community service at Fox Sprinkler by cleaning the parking lot. Fox Sprinkler is where we park our trailer in between camping trips. Please bring your scout there a little before 7 pm so that we can complete   the parking lot clean up with as much daylight as possible.  Fox Sprinkler is located at 951 Estes Ct, Schaumburg, IL 60193. In addition, please bring your Scout books so that Mr. Hurley can sign off any requirements you may have achieved.

Great Lakes Naval Base camping – September 20th – September 22nd – Anyone who is over the age 18 and is planning on going on the naval base trip, needs to get me their vetting forms by Aug.14th to give them enough time to get the background checks done. If these are not complete, they will not let us on the base! Any questions or need me to email this form again let me know, I will have blank copies at our meetings too.
