Dear Troop 230,
Firstly a happy new year to everyone and here’s to a successful year of scouting.
This note is to share the sign up genius link for the February campout, which is planned for the weekend of the 4th – 6th. While backpacking is not a new activity, there was a clear feedback from the scouts last year to put a second backpacking campout into the calendar, so this is it. We are going to Lake Somerville for this (our other backpacking trip is Lake Georgetown in April) so this will be somewhere new for a lot of us and its not too far away. While we would encourage all to try the backpacking, there is a “base camp” option which is geared towards those who aren’t ready to take on the primitive camping aspect. Mr. Klahn is helping with the backpacking aspect and we are looking for an ASM to coordinate base camp activities for those staying at camp. More details will be forthcoming in our Monday meetings, but hopefully we can get a good crew going on this, so sign up early!
