Troop 33 Weekly Blast: December 10, 2019

Dec. 10: No troop meeting

Dec. 17: Last troop meeting of 2019

Dec. 20: Troop membership renewal deadline

No Troop Meeting Dec. 10th, No SkyHigh Activity

Remember that we don't have a Troop Meeting this Tuesday because LAUMC needs Creekside for an event.

The activity at SkyHigh Dec. 10th was cancelled due to not enough signups to make it worthwhile. Please study for those finals instead! We're back at LAUMC for our last regular Troop Meeting of 2019 on Tuesday Dec 17th.

Troop 33 membership renewal for 2020 - DUE BY DEC. 20th!!!

Troop 33 membership renewal season is ending soon. Both Scouts and adults need to fill in the online membership questionnaire. We are also collecting 2020 membership fees for Scouts and BSA Fair Share donations. Please find detailed instructions on the troop website: Renewing Your Troop 33 Membership for 2020

Anyone not renewed will be dropped from the roster and unable to participate in any troop activities in 2020. An additional processing fee of $25 will be leveraged per scout if you are dropped from the roster and we need to add you back.

URGENT - We need to know where our tents are!

Please make sure to bring any tents you still have to our 12/17/19 Troop Meeting or you can drop them off anytime day/night at my house 458 Distel Drive, Los Altos. We are doing an annual inventory and need details quickly now. Please email me at to let me know what you're holding, and we can get the actual gear later.  Thanks! Tom / Mr. Poppitz

Dropping out from Troop 33

So you've decided you are not renewing your membership in 2020. We're sad to see you go, but please, do let us know why by filling in this questionnaire. In exchange, we promise that we will not pester you with phone calls during Christmas break asking you why you haven't submitted your registration renewal form. Thank you for your help!
