The April Trip- Important Information (UPDATED)

So, after countless hours of debate, the dates for the April trip have been finalized. It will go from Thursday the 21st through Saturday the 23rd. Also, parents are needed to drive, and only a couple are needed to actually walk the trail.

Update: All scouts going on the April trip should bring the stuff they are bringing in on Tuesday 4/12 to go over everything in a final check.

Update 4/12: Any scouts going on the trip should remember that THERE IS A MEETING ON THE 19TH. We are aware that this is school vacation, but we need to make sure everyone is properly equipped, so show up!

*Important note from the Webmaster: I will be updating this log as more information comes in. Be sure to be checking shortly after each Tuesday to see if we have more information!

Hello Troop,

Upcoming News for December and January

Hello Troop,

Just as a quick  reminder to you all, there will not be a troop meeting next week (December 29), as schools will be closed. The last meting of the year is December 22. In other news, we have the Christmas tree pickup right at the start of January 2016, on Sunday the 3rd, so don’t forget about that. And on the second weekend of January (9-10) we have the cold (hopefully) toes trip! How exciting! I hope to see you all at the next meeting, and happy holidays.

Your friend, Patrick.
