-Order of the Arrow: Ordeal Brotherhood Weekend
This will be our first Ordeal of the season so come out and join us. We will need help in all areas to assist our new members on their voyage through the Order of the Arrow.
Would you like to seal your membership in the OA by taking your Brotherhood? You can do it here for just an additional $20.00. If you took your Ordeal in 2021 or before you’re eligible. Just choose the Brotherhood option when you register and pay.
If you are a new candidate, you MUST complete the written Candidate Registration Form which was mailed to you (or it is available at the event page listed below.) and either mail it in at least 7 days before the event or bring it with you to the event.

-Class B Troop Shirts
Within the next few weeks, we will be ordering a batch of class B Troop shirts to replenish our stock. Along with putting together the order for the Troop, I wanted to add any shirts for those Scouts and Scouters that may want to add to their collection.
First year summer camp Scouts will get a cotton version for free. If they would like to go with a dri-fit version, that will be $4 extra. Scouters and older Scouts can purchase cotton shirts for $10 and dri-fits for $14. This pricing is for sizes S-XL. For sizes larger than XL the price goes up $2 per size larger for each type.
We will only order dri-fits if someone has ordered them. Our standard inventory is for cotton shirts only, so if you’d like a dri-fit version, now would be the time to order it
Please let me know of any that you’d like to order by the June 6th meeting. They can be paid for upon delivery. Questions about shirts can be sent to Mr. Huggler.
-Discover Your Next Adventure Recruiting Event
The Troop will be arriving at 8am to start setting up for the event, and we expect to have everything cleaned up by 3pm. Hot Dogs and water will be available during the day. Please make sure you RSVP on Team App if you will attend. Scouts will be needed to lead groups of visitors around to the different activities in the park.
-Salute to Mothers Dinner
For this Troop meeting Troop 98 will be treating the mothers of our Scouts to a special dinner to thank them for all they do in supporting their Scouts. The adults of the Adult Crow Patrol will be overseeing the preparation of the meal and the Scouts will be working as waiters. We hope that you will come have a great evening and that this becomes a yearly tradition moving forward. Please RSVP for this event on Team App so we can prepare the appropriate amount of food. Our menu for the evening can be found below. Included with the RSVP is a selection for your main dish and type of potato. Please leave a comment or reach out to us by email if you have any questions.
Brisket / Vegetarian Chili
Scalloped Potatoes / Sweet Potato Soufflé
Spend a weekend learning both basic and advanced skills related to fishing and water safety. Join us at OPCC from June 17 to 19 for their annual Baitcasters seminar. Classes range from bow fishing to lure making to boat safety with a variety in between. All participants are encouraged to participate in a fishing derby and attend the award ceremony with prizes to conclude the day. This event is FREE and open to all youth ages 8 – 16. Adult sponsors are charged a $20.00 fee. Meals will be provided, and overnight camping is available at no charge.
-Jesse C. Eagle Court of Honor
Jesse and his family will be hosting Jesse’s Court of Honor on Sunday June 5th from 1pm onwards at Woodside Green Park in Gahanna. An Eagle Court of Honor is a very special event for the Scouts that have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. This is a great opportunity for all Scouts and Parents to see the hard work and dedication that earning the Eagle Scout rank requires. This is a Class A uniform event. Chilidogs and cake will be available during the event.
For Summer Camp Regular Price Scouts need to pay $350 and Adults need to pay $180 on or before June 20th. Payment must be paid in full by June 20th to receive the Late Pricing. There is no more early bird deposit, the pricing for camp is only based on when you are PAID IN FULL. Payments can be made with a check during a Troop Meeting or using the Team App ONLINE STORE. Checks should be written to Troop 98 BSA. If you use the store a processing fee has been added to the price. Also, please work to schedule your doctor visit for you BSA physical now so that it will be ready for Summer Camp.
