Here is another one of those annoying reminders. This week’s (Aug. 12) meeting is on the usual day and at the usual time. We will meet at Crossroads Christian Camp.
Remind the boys to bring their swimsuits and towels. Hopefully, the weather will be nice enough for swimming.
Eventually, I will get the whole posting thing right. Apparently it looks different, when I preview my work, than the post you receive.
If you click on “TrailLifeME-0316” at the bottom of any post you get from us, it will take you to our homepage. The link to the calendar is at the top of the homepage
Again, sorry about that.
I know that you check the Troop’s calendar (available on this page) regularly but I don’t feel that I am doing my job unless I send out these little reminders.:)) So, today’s reminder…this week’s (Aug 5) meeting will be held at East Eddington Community Church rather that Crossroad Christian Camp. We will see you at the usual time.
We will be camping this coming weekend, from Friday night through Saturday – finishing up after lunch. It’s a quick trip, and super-short notice (sorry about that!), because we just got permission to try out a great new camp site near the Page’s house.
Who: Woodlands Trail, Navigators, and Adventurers
What: 1-night camping trip
When: Friday 7/21, 630 pm setup
Where: We’ll park at the Page’s house and hike in – less than 1/2 mile.
Why? Because camping is awesome!
Menu and packing list will be sent out in the next day or so.
The cost will be $8 per person.
Also, our Trailmen are learning about outdoor cooking this month, so Navigators/Adventurers – plan on doing some cooking!
Please call/text Steve to confirm you will be there, so we can plan appropriate food quantities.
Hopefully your summer plans are going well, and you’ve got time to sneak away to the beautiful Chemo pond for a couple hours tomorrow! We will meet at Crossroads at the normal time.
Our pursuit of wilderness knowledge has us thinking about Outdoor Cooking this week. That means…fire! And…S’mores! (plus some more in-depth cooking concepts – but come on, we all get excited about the s’mores, right?!).
If you’ll be attending tomorrow, could you please send a text to Steve to confirm? We’d like to have everyone chip in and bring part of the supplies for the s’mores if you’re able (sorry for the short notice!). We’ll have a couple families bring graham crackers, a couple bring chocolate bars, and a couple bring marshmallows. Let me know if you’ve already got extras on hand, or we can let you know what is still needed if you don’t mind a quick stop at the store on the way out.
Greeting fellow Trail Lifers-
First things first. Congratulations to all of our young men! I would like to thank each of you for giving your best effort last Saturday. The water was cold and the test was hard, especially after several hours of stacking fire wood. Way to go, one and all!
This week-end (Sat. the 24th) is our monthly Hit the Trail. As a reward for last week’s hard labor, we thought we would offer……more swimming. Bring your suntan lotion, goggles, and towel. We’re going pool swimming, nature walking, and, as a bonus, food.
Where: Cold River Campground
Directions: Follow Route 9 from Brewer. Route 178 (Riverside Drive) veers left. Take Route 178. The campground is 1 mile up on the right.
When: Saturday (the 24) from 2 pm until 8 pm
How Much: OK, follow along. The cost is $2.50 for a young man under 12 and $5.00 for a man over 12. There is also a $5.00 per FAMILY fee to cover our share of the dinner that the campground is putting on.
What to Bring:
- Swim Suit
- Snacks (dinner isn’t until 6 pm)
- Something to carry it all in
Other Things You Might Need:
- Sun Tan Lotion
- Bug Spray
- Sun Glasses
- Old Sneakers or Water Shoes
- Life Jacket (if needed)
Please, leave your pool toys, noodles, scuba gear, and pool floats at home.
Please contact Steve by Thursday so we can get a good count on how many Trailmen are coming.
