Welcome to Oldwick Troop 199

BSA Troop 199 meets Mondays (7:30 pm to 9:00 pm) at the Christian Education Building (CEB) of our sponsor, the Zion Lutheran Church, 18 Miller Lane in Oldwick, New Jersey. On some occasions, we schedule our meetings at Fairmount North Park (north of the 512/517 intersection, behind the cemetery and sport fields).

We schedule our Troop meetings in conjunction with the calendar used by Old Turnpike School in Tewksbury. When a school holiday falls on a Monday, we do not have a Troop meeting on that day. Troop meetings will still be held on planned school half-days. In the event of an emergency early dismissal or school cancellation for inclement weather, the Troop meeting is canceled.
We have an active Troop and we enjoy campouts, hikes, high adventure challenges, summer camp, service projects, and many other fun outings.

If you have any questions about our troop, please contact our Scoutmaster.

If you need help with our website, please contact our Webmaster.

Come join us at our next Troop Meeting!

Utility disruptions - please check on elderly

Posted by webmastertl on Aug 5 2020 - 6:33pm
 
Hello Troop Families, 
 
We hope everyone weathered the storm and is doing well. 
 
The Hunterdon Dept. of Public Services / Office of Emergency Measures does not have an estimate for restoration of power to our area and stated, “it may take days”.
 
Current Tewksbury road closures and traffic light outages. http://nixle.us/C49K2

 

 

Safety First:

 
-          Survey your surroundings for hazards, downed power lines, tree limbs on power lines, hanging tree limbs than could fall, flooded areas and swelled streams. Remind all to keep away from these hazards and to call your utility supplier for electrical hazards. 
 
-          Some roads are flooded. Do not try to pass through as there could be unseen hazards resulting in your vehicle getting damaged or stuck.  
 
-          Keep social distancing and wear masks if you do venture out to protect yourself and others.
 
As responsible citizens, please check on your neighbors, especially the elderly. They may have downed trees blocking their driveway. They may have well water and with no pump, no water. Possibly offer to bring them water, some ice or to charge their cell phone. The act of you asking if they need help is the most important part. Please call 911 if you believe an elderly neighbor needs medical assistance.
 
Remember – Safety First!
 

Summer Plan

Posted by webmastertl on Jul 27 2020 - 9:34pm

Hello Scouts,

 
I hope that you and your families are well. 
 
 
Summer Program - We are looking into possible camping/hiking options as a substitute for summer camp. Details will be provided as soon as something comes together. 
 
Advancements - Please email me or an ASM to schedule time for a virtual sign off when your parent is available to join us. Ensure that you are prepared to demonstrate the knowledge or skill. Also, I encourage Scouts to register for any BSA accredited on-line merit badge program being held this summer. Examples below from Camp Nobebosco and Washington’s Crossing Council. 
 
 
 
Call or send me any questions.

Posted by webmastertl on May 6 2020 - 9:08pm

Hello Troop Families, 

 
To assist with community and global efforts to slow COVID-19 transmission, we are suspending all Troop activity during school closure. 
 
Note that your Troop may be asked to help with community functions such as food distribution in the upcoming weeks. Be Prepared. 
 
To maintain forward momentum with advancement, we will begin virtual sign-offs for specific requirements of each rank. SPL Thomas Anderson will announce details in a few days. 
 
As always, call or send me any questions. For Scouts with questions, please include your parent or an ASM when sending emails. Thank you. 
 

New Merit Badge and BOR Procedures

Posted by webmastertl on Oct 16 2019 - 9:39pm

Dear Scouts,

 

My name is Jennifer Quandt and I have recently taken over the position of Advancement Coordinator from Mrs. Gagen.  To give you a little background on myself, I have worked in the field of Human Resources for 25+ years.  I have lived in Tewksbury for the last seven years.  My son Drew is a first-year Boy Scout.  I have been working behind the scenes along with my husband Andrew Patykula who has held several positions while Drew was in Cub Scouts. 

 

Merit Badges

A cooler will be left on the side of my garage.  Inside will be another plastic container to ensure materials won’t get wet. All merit badge cards need to be dropped off at least one week prior to the Court of Honor (COH) to process. 

 

Board of Reviews

In preparation for the Board of Review (BOR) you will need to call me at minimum two weeks in advance of the Court of Honor (COH) date, if not before when you have completed your Scoutmaster Conference, so that I can schedule the meeting. When you call to schedule your meeting, you will need to provide the following information:

  1. Your full name
  2. Reason for the call – rank just completed
  3. Call back phone number

Once I have received your request, I will then confirm your date and time for the Board of Review.  As a reminder, all sign offs in your Scout Handbook need to be completed and brought with you to the Board of Review. 

 

The next Court of Honor is scheduled for Monday, October 21st.

 

Thank you.
