Scoutmaster Ludolph Steps Down. Scoutmaster Whitesell Steps Up


Troop 108 Scoutmaster Bob Ludolph addressed the troop tonight as we circled up outside our meeting room as the sun began to set.  He explained that he had accepted the lead role in the Pit Crew for the Nation Ford Marching Band for the coming season and didn’t feel like he could give both the Pit Crew and the scout troop his best effort and decided to step aside and allow long-time scouter Tim Whitesell to step up as the new Scoutmaster.   Bob will continue as an assistant scoutmaster with the troop and will attend and assist where he can and plans to take on a larger roll with training on the district and council levels.  Bob, we thank you for your leadership over the past two years and wish you the best of luck as you lead the Nation Ford Marching Band Pit Crew.

We welcome Tim Whitesell to step out of his Committee Member roll with the troop to take the helm of the adult leadership with the troop.  The transition from one leader to another should be seamless as the youth of the troop continue to plan and lead our weekly meetings and Steve Finch continues to chair the Troop Committee.


Order Troop Summer Camp T-Shirts Here Before June 13th

Troop 108 has made our own camp t-shirt each the past few summers that feature something about the camp that we attend on the back.  These help make the troop look uniform at camp and help make the scouts easy to spot from a distance while at camp.  The troop leaders strongly suggest that each scout attending summer camp order a shirt.  These will be handed out to the scouts one morning during the week so that everyone will show up for breakfast in the same shirt.

Your scout may have already been contacted at the troop meeting as to whether or not he wanted a T-shirt, but even if you have already indicated your size and how many you wanted to order, please use this form to confirm your selection and pay for the shirts.  We need to get this done ASAP as the summer camp is right around the corner.  This year’s troop t-shirt will be made of a 50/50 cotton-poly blend that that should not shrink and will be durable.

Cost for the shirts is $10 each up to and including size XL.  After XL, each additional larger size will be an additional $1.00.  Once you have selected your scout’s size and quantity you can use the payment button to pay for your shirt(s).  Note that if you pay online that PayPal adds a small transaction fee.  If you’d rather pay in cash, please have your scout bring it to the June 12th meeting.  T-shirts ordered but not payed for by the close of the meeting on June 12th will not be ordered.

Scouts who are not attending our summer camp this year may also order a shirt using this form and can get their shirt at the first meeting following summer camp, July 17th.

Storms Cause Tonight’s Swim Test To Be Postponed Until June 19th @ 7pm


Because of dangerous thunderstorms in the area, tonight’s swim test has been rescheduled for June 19th @ 7PM.  This will take the place of the regularly scheduled troop meeting for that Monday night.   Scouts already registered for tonight’s reshceduled swim test will be automagically registered for the June 19th event and those not yet registered will be able to register for the rescheduled test by logging into the troop’s Troopmaster account.

Don’t forget that June 19th is also the deadline for turning in updated BSA Health Forms (Downloadable and Fillable PDF form located HERE).  Parents/Guardians can complete Parts A & B but a doctor must complete Part C of the form in order for the participant to attend a scouting summer camp or high adventure function.

Summer Camp Packing List Info

Below is a link to items that a scout might consider taking with him to summer camp.  If you have any questions, ask any troop leader for clarification. Even though this list is a year old, all items listed are accurate for the 2017 event as well.

Packing List for Summer Camp

More information on where and when we will depart on July 2nd and return on July 8th be coming later

Don’t forget that we have a swim test scheduled to happen tomorrow night.  Check your weekly troop newsletters that arrive via email (if your email address is up-to-date in Troopmaster) for the link to get signed up.  Registration ends tonight.

It is important to note that all BSA Health Forms (Parts A, B and C) are due to be turned in no later than the troop meeting on June 19th.  If this presents a problem, please speak with the Scoutmaster.

Strawberry Festival Parking Fundraiser – May 5th & 6th.

Blackwell’s Tax Service on Springs Street (right behind Subway and the comic book shop)has graciously allowed Troop 108 to park cars on Friday, May 5th and on Saturday, May 6th to raise funds for troop equipment repair and the purchase of new equipment​.

Parking is $5.00 per car while spaces are available.  

Scouts will be needed to assist with parking on both Friday evening and on Saturday.


OA Members – Help Needed With Parking On Friday, April 21st.


Because of limited parking space at the Worthy Boys Camp in Rock Hill for the York District Spring Camporee, the OA has been asked to assist with organizing the parking of vehicles on Friday evening.

Tim Whitesell needs the help of 4 or 5 Order of the Arrow members who can meet him at 4:30pm at Unity Church to ride over to complete the parking task.

Please contact Tim Whitesell at 803-984-1775 with any questions you may have and/or to let him know that you can assist him with parking.

EarthDay Update – April 22nd, 2017

Don’t forget that the troop will be helping out with EarthDay on Saturday, April 22nd, 2017.  Scouts should arrive at the Dairy Barn at 9am to go to the canoeing activity area and our scout’s commitment will end at 3PM.

Our Scouts have been asked to participate in the opening flag ceremony, so be sure that scouts wear their Official Uniform shirts over their activity uniform T-shirts for this portion of the day.  They will be able to remove their Official Uniform shirts once they return to the canoeing activity area following the 10:30am opening ceremony.

Don’t forget to sign your scout up to participate on the TroopMaster website.


NO SCOUT MEETING tonight, April 3rd, 2017 Because of Severe Weather


Since Fort Mill School District has cancelled all after school activities because of the Tornado Watch that is in effect until 8:30pm Scoutmaster Ludolph has elected to play it safe with our scouts and their families as well.

There will be NO SCOUT MEETING tonight, April 3rd, 2017.

No Meeting on April 10th, 2017 as schools are out on Spring Break.

We will have our next regular meeting on Monday night, April 17th, 2017 which would normally be Patrol Leader’s Council meeting only, but given two weeks without a meeting we will have a regular troop meeting.

Stay home and stay safe.  This is a great opportunity to review Emergency Preparedness plans that your family has in place and to consider any changes that need to be made to the plan.


Summer Camp Is Exactly 100 Days Away!

It is hard to believe that in just 100 days we’ll be headed out to Camp Rainey Mountain for a week or fun and adventure.

With that in mind, here are some things to think about:

  • Have your paid all of your camp fees?
  • Have you submitted your merit badge class selections (along with some alternates in case classes are already full)?
  • Have you scheduled your annual physical with your doctor? (your BSA physical, Parts A, B & C must be current and turned in about 1 month prior to leaving for camp – date to be announced).  Here is a link to a previous website posting about this and medications that are being taken to camp.
  • Have you started making sure that you have everything that you might need for camp?  Here is a link to a list that we posted a while back that you can refer to.
  • Scouts will pack all of their items (except their sleeping bag and a daypack) in a footlocker with a keyed or combination lock.   Leaders are to be provided with a spare key or combination for emergencies.
  • We always depart for, and return from summer camp from the Bi-Lo parking lot at the corner of Hwy 160 W. and Munn Road.
  • We have had some issues with cell phone usage at summer camp in recent years.  We understand that these devices have become like the swiss army knife of our lives as our GPS device, camera, online reference, calendar and so much more.  Leaders are still trying to determine the best way to handle scouts having cell phones at camp this coming year.  Look for more information about this later.
