Important Information about Recharter

Posted on Nov 20 2018 - 2:49pm

It is time to recharter your BSA membership.  Packets will be available to pick up at the October 16 meeting.  Please pick up your family’s packet promptly, and return the completed packet as soon as possible to make our wonderful volunteers’ job easier. 

Once again, we are offering an earlybird incentive to turn in packets early.  Those who return a COMPLETE packet by the end of the October 30 meeting will be in the draw for a 50% discount on the next Summer Camp.  Please DO NOT turn in partially complete packets.  The deadline to turn in all packets is November 13 at the meeting.  There is no meeting on the following week, and the troop’s recharter process will have started.  Packets can be returned after that date for a $30 inconvenience fee, until November 27.  All members who have not returned packets after that date will be DROPPED from Troop 842 and BSA membership.  We will not hold up the troop’s registration for any late returns. 

Remember, the new YPT is now compulsory, and YPT taken before this recent summer all expired on September 30, regardless of the date printed on YPT certificates and cards.  This is to bring everyone up to date with changes within the BSA.  You will be advised in your recharter packet if your YPT has expired – and you should have received emails advising you to retake your YPT.  We cannot recharter any adults without a current YPT.  You do not have to wait until you have your packet to update your YPT.  Log in now to my.scouting.org to take the new YPT.

If you have any questions, contact Irene Lopez at irenem08@hotmail.com.  If you do not wish to recharter, please help out our hardworking membership committee and contact Irene Lopez at irenem08@hotmail.com, so that we do not waste supplies and time creating a packet for you.

 Again, the dates:

  • Tuesday 10/16 = pick up recharter packets at the troop meeting
  • Tuesday 10/23 = turn in complete recharter packets
  • Tuesday 10/30 = earlybird deadline to turn in complete packets for draw
  • Tuesday 11/6 = turn in complete recharter packets
  • Tuesday 11/13 = deadline to turn in complete packets at the Court of Honor
  • Tuesday 11/20 = no meeting – happy Thanksgiving
  • Tuesday 11/27 = final deadline to return packets (with late fee) – or be dropped from the roster
