The cost of annual BSA registration for next year is increasing due to new costs at the national level. We will supply details in the next eBuggle. To help offset this expected cost increase the Troop committee voted to provide an Event Scholarship of $20 per scout to be applied, $10 per event, to any outing or campout held next year starting with Winter Camp. Again, more details coming next week.
