March campout change

In case you missed the meeting last night, the location of the March campout has moved to camp Pomperaug in Union, CT.  This also means we’re back to an overnight with Adirondack style tents.   I’ll post an updated permission slip this weekend for anyone who still needs one.

SUMMER camp deposits Due tonight

Summer camp (not dinner camp :-)) deposits of $50 are due at tonight’s meeting.  It is critical that we have an accurate count of who will attend camp so we can secure our traditional sites at JN Webster.  If there are any concerns with making your deposit, please see Patty or Mike tonight.

March campout important info

Due to the amount of snow on the ground, a decision was made to make the March trip a Saturday day trip only.  I did not have time to get the updated permission slip online, but will have them at the meeting tonight, and will get it online tonight in case you miss the meeting.

Ropes Course / Zip Line Trip for June – requesting feedback

A couple years ago we went to the Adventure Park in Bridgeport CT and I’m looking into another trip for this June.  We only need 10 people to qualify for a group rate.  Please reply if your Scout would be interested and a count if you think parents/siblings would join (at the same group rate).   Last year we asked for a couple extra dollars from each and had enough for pizza delivery for lunch and a professional group photo at the Park.

Please note: This is not a commitment, I’m just trying to gauge interest level right now.  Here’s their website for more info.

There are a couple similar places closer to Vernon, but having been to them all, the one in Bridgeport is the largest with most courses and levels available and would be more suited f or a large group.  So let me know if you’re interested!  Thanks!

Regular pricing
Age 12 & older: $49
Ages 10–11: $44
Ages 7–9: $39
Group Rate: $39 for 10 people with greater discounts for > 25  and a possible additional discounts for early booking.

Important Black Rock Updates

Departure on Saturday will be at 8:00AM and not 10:00 as stated on the permission slip. 
Also… boys should bring spending money.  The trip to West Point will include a stop at the gift shop, and there will be a lunch stop at McDonald’s on the way home Monday.  (Approx $20 is recommended according to my son :-) )
