Be Prepared for May Rafting Trip

We are going rafting this Saturday — rain or shine.

Be sure to check the Shenandoah River water temperature, river conditions, and dress appropriately.

Here’s an article with suggested ways to dress warm on the water.

We can also save time if everyone submits their waiver electronically.

If you have questions about the rafting trip, please contact Mr. Birchler.

More details at tonight’s meeting!

April 12 Announcements

APRIL CAMP OUT

First up, the troop is planning a camping trip to Prince William Forrest April 23-24. Patrols will need to plan meals and activities. We will be introducing our new scouts to the skills they will need to make their first advancements. We will also be hiking. Everyone needs to bring personal water bottles as well as sunscreen and other camping essentials. We can discuss other equipment needs tonight or provide a list to those new Scouts and parents who need them.

For questions, contact Mr. Ehret.

RIVER RAFTING

Mr. Birchler has started planning the river rafting trip, which has been reserved for May 14. We will likely leave early that morning to be at the boat launch in Harpers Ferry by 9 a.m.

We need a firm head count as soon as possible. So we will be taking a count tonight. Again, if you won’t be at the meeting, please reply today so we know who is going.

Everyone who will be on the water (Scouts and adults) will also need to complete the online waiver.

According to Mr. Birchler, “This is a level 2/3 river (nothing crazy – just two places where it is a little scary).”

If you have questions about the rafting trip, please contact Mr. Birchler.
