It looks like there is nothing to complete on this form which is probably why it did not print.

 

For anyone having problems with the curriculum selection, such as not finding the button to to so when you log in.  If you registered as an adult participant, for staff or any other reason, you will have to log in as the scout for curriculum selection.  Logging in as an adult participant will not give you to curriculum selection.

There is one correction that needs to be made as per National Supply policy:

For every $100 you spend on CAMPING EQUIPMENT ONLY you will receive one free $20 Gift Card. (If you spend $200 you will get $40 in gift cards, etc.) 

Again, free the $20 gift card applies to Camping Equipment Only (not uniforms, insignia, etc)
That is not to say that you cannot use those $20 Gift Cards on uniform purchases.

 

For your Jambo uniform needs please contact, Brandon Rueger - Scout Store Manager <brueger@bsamail.org> or 716-891-1689

 

Reminder - Jamboree Medical Forms are due on Monday, April 15 - a copy of the medical form is needed by council.  Please drop a copy off at the GNFC Council Office even if you have mailed it to the national office.  Your troop needs a copy of the form for the travel time to the Jamboree and back.  Any questions, regarding medical forms please contact Jamie Prowse <jjprowse@gmail.com>.
