Troop trip policy – Troop 112 operates on a limited budget.  If a trip or outing is scheduled, we usually must commit to a certain number of scouts/adults and our deposit/payment reflects that number.  Should someone be unable to attend for any reason, the Troop will be unable to refund any committed amounts.  We will try to provide a cutoff date if refunds are possible.  Thank You for your understanding.

ReStatement of Attendance requirements – Attendance at meetings and participation in Troop activities is also part of the Scout Spirit that needs to be demonstrated for advancement.  Currently, the Troop has a number of registered Scouts who don’t regularly participate in Troop activities.  Scouts are reminded that they need to show a minimum of 50% participation in order to be eligible for advancement to the next rank as this participation is a part of the Scout Spirit that needs to be demonstrated for advancement.   All decisions on a Scout’s percentage of participation for rank advancement will be made by the Scoutmaster at the required Scoutmaster conference for that rank   


The Ashland Lions Club


Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our scouts.  Toward that end, an online training course on Youth Protection is offered at  This course takes only 20 minutes to complete and is self-paced.  Upon completion, a certificate is issued and your completion is recorded at Council Headquarters.  Please access this free and required training at your very earliest convenience.  Renewal is required annually.  Thank You!  Check out our website at


Reminder about Uniforms: All the Scouts know that one needs a FULL uniform, book, dues and sign in on time to be eligible for the door prize at Troop meeting   But some probably don’t know that the Troop with its sponsor, the Ashland Lion’s Club, has a requirement to be in uniform at meetings - “Scouts are required to wear Class A uniforms to Troop meetings and Courts of Honor and Class B uniforms to Patrol meetings as this is a part of showing Scout Spirit.  Scouts failing to wear their uniforms will be able to stay at the meetings as observers, but will not be able to sit with the other scouts or participate in the formal discussions.” 

So please start observing this rule, and show your Scout spirit!


Merit Badge books please – If your scout has earned a merit badge and still has that book, returning it to the troop will give another scout a chance to earn that badge.  Thank you.


Remember - monthly PLC meetings are now being held at 6pm on Troop night/ 1st Wednesday of the month.  Troop meetings 1st & 3rd Wednesday; Patrol meeting 2nd and 4th, Merit Badge workshop – 4th Wednesday.
