Medical Forms - Parts A, B and C

Posted on Feb 8 2017 - 11:01am

Each year, the BSA requires us to have a new copy of the medical form parts A and B for each scout. This is so that we have the latest information on allergies, medications, insurance, etc. Please take some time fill these out and get them back to me as soon as possible. I am required to have these with me when we are on outings. I realize it is a pain to fill these out each year, so the best thing to do is to keep a copy on your PC, and if nothing has changed from year to year, just change the date and hand me the new copies.
