Make a Troop 132 fashion statement!  The following Troop 132 gear is available:
  • Red class B T-shirts: $15
    • These shirts are a great way to show Troop spirit and unity at scouting and non-scouting events.  These are not official Scout uniforms and are optional.
  • Custom Troop 132 uniform numbers: $3 
    • These are the troop numbers which go on the left sleeve of your scout shirt.  It is one single patch as compared to the three individual numbers you would get at the scout shop.  Under the "132", in smaller print, is "Since 1969" our troops founding year.
  • Custom troop neckerchiefs: free/$15
    • These neckerchiefs are given to newly joining or crossing over Scouts at no cost.  If you are a new scout and have not received one, let us know.  For all scouts, additional neckerchief's are available for $15.  Standard red Boy Scout neckerchiefs with black embroidery (available at the Scout Store or www.scoutstuff.org for around $10) are also acceptable for Troop 132 members.
See Committee Chair David Owen at a troop meeting if you are interested in any of these items.

Registration is open for the 2011-2012 Scouting season!

posted Nov 7, 2011, 6:35 PM by Webmaster ‎(Rhonda Pautler)‎

Registration is open for the 2011-2012 Scouting season!  All registration material is to be provided to Committee Chair Asli Memisoglu (asli_memisoglu@comcast.net).

Scout Registration

Scout registration requires payment and possibly a number of forms (all forms are available from Asli Memisoglu or on the troop web site- www.troop132.com -> Forms):

  • Registration is $60 for the first Scout from a family and $48 for each additional Scout from the same family (unless multiple copies of Boy's Life are desired, then it's $60 for all Scouts).  Checks should be made out to "BSA Troop 132".
  • Annual medical forms are needed for all Scouts.  Those who went to summer camp are covered.  Those who did not go to summer camp need to fill out at least parts A and B of the official scout medical form (no doctor's signature required for these parts).
  • A Troop Conduct Guidelines form must be signed by all new Scouts and a new Scout's parent.
  • New Scouts must complete a registration form.  A registration form is not required for Scouts who were registered last year.  We also already have registration forms for Cubs from last year who participated on the crossover campout on Scout Island.
Parent Responsibilities and Registration

The troop has three important requests from parents:

  • In order to provide our boys a quality program we strongly request (bordering on require) that each parent volunteer to assist the troop in some capacity during the year.  The task can be one a shot (e.g. leading a trip or two, going on a trip, volunteering for a fund raiser) or filling a leadership position.  Send Asli Memisoglu (asli_memisoglu@comcast.net) email or see her at a troop meeting to discuss this.
  • We strongly request that one parent from each family register.  We need a minimum number of register adults at Scouting events and having a large pool of candidates makes it easier to supply our boys a quality program.  There is no charge for adult registration (the troop covers it) and the form is available available online or from Asli.
  • Adult registration requires the BSA's equivalent of a CORI check, so a drivers license photocopy is needed.
  • Scout insurance regulations require that the following information be supplied for each driver/vehicle that transports Scouts (other than your own son) to/from/on a Scout outing.  If not already done so in a previous year please supply the following via email to mhoag@verizon.net  for any parent/car combination that may be transporting Scouts to/from a Scouting event this year:
Kind, year, and make of vehicle
Number of seat belts
Owner's name
Driver's license number
Will everyone wear a seatbelt? (hint: correct answer has 3 letters)
Insurance coverage:
  -> Liability per person (no longer permitted to say "Mass state min")
  -> Liability per accident (no longer permitted to say "Mass state min")
  -> Property damage (no longer permitted to say "Mass state min")
