Troop 57 Meets Monday Evenings from 7:30-9:00pm
Great Bridge Presbyterian Church, 333 Cedar Road, Chesapeake, Virginia
Northern Tier High Adventure
So far we have only 5 people that have contacted Mr. Barry about attending Northern Tier
next summer. Dates for the trip will be 1 August to 11 August and it is one of the 4 Boy Scout High Adventure camps throughout the country. This will be an exciting trip that will spend 7 days in the boundary waters of Minnesota canoeing and camping. We need to get 8 people per crew to minimize costs. Right now we are expecting costs to be between $1500-$2000 with the majority of this going to airfare and transportation to the Ely, MN scout base. Age limit for high adventure is 14 or 13 and have completed 8th grade.
We will have a committee meeting on Monday, December 1st at 7:45pm.
We need to discuss some things such as the up and coming mulch sale. As per norm, all parents are invited.
The committee meeting will start at 7:45, hopefully last about a half an hour and then we’ll break up into groups of 3 and knock out 3 more boards. Thanks to everybody who came out to help with boards last week. We got a lot done.
