6/15 Meeting Plan – Please Read!

Hello, trailmen and families!

A quick reminder that we ARE meeting tomorrow morning at 9:30 am, and yes, we will be at the Page Garage again this week.

(We’re looking to get back out to Crossroads soon,
but they are booked out for a wedding tomorrow!)

We’re hoping to see everyone there tomorrow, so we can firm up plans for our first 2-night camping trip of the summer (coming up on 6/21-6/23), and it will be much easier to make plans with everyone present.

Plus, we just like seeing you all.  🙂

Memorial Weekend Camp Out 5/24-25

This gallery contains 9 photos.

Camp Out RSVP

Evening Trail Life family-

Thank you all for coming out to the Troop’s Award Ceremony. Hope you have all had a chance to look at the photos. What a crew!!

A couple of quick pieces of Troop business.

  1.  Please RSVP to Steve about the camp out.  (a)We need to know if you are going to be able to make it or not and (b) if you are not able to spend the night,  are you going to spend Saturday with us?  This will allow us to purchase enough food and to figure out the cost.  As always, the sooner you can let him know, the better.
  2.  Remember that, even though it is MAY, it is still going to be in the 40’s at night and only up into the mid 60’s during the day.  Even though this sounds fairly nice, it is still cold for sleeping and when you first get up.  Plan on the warmer side when choosing your clothes.  Long underwear, a hat, and mittens are not out of order.  Warm socks will make sleeping more pleasant.  You can always take layers off but, if you don’t have them, you can’t put them on.  If you have any questions, check the Trailman’s  Packing List.  If you still have questions, let us know!

See you on Friday around 6pm at Eaton Brook and until then
