Ahoy Troop 17,


The 4th Annual Troop 17 sailing trip/Regatta is rapidly approaching.


Please respond to me by October, 9th so I can get a head count for food
and boats.    rhuffine@xxxxxxxxxxx  All DADS ARE



We will be leaving the Scout Hut at 4PM Friday October 15th.  We will
travel to Oriental NC. We will be stopping at King's in Kinston at about
7:00 for supper. We'll travel on to our camp site, set up camp and be
ready for Sat AM.


Sat AM we'll go to Brantley's for the breakfast buffet (GOOD EATS).
We'll come back to the marina get on our boats and begin the 4th annual
Troop 17 regatta.

We'll sail/race till lunch. Stop raft up together , swim, play, explore,
EAT LUNCH, and in general have lots of fun. We'll then board our vessels
and race the 2nd leg of our regatta back to the marina. 

Sat. evening we'll have the buffet at Brantley's and return to our camp
for campfire and camping stuff.


Sunday morning, we'll have breakfast (Continental most likely) pack up,
have Devotions and be on our way back to Burlington. We should be back
early afternoon but, if we're having fun and want to explore it may be a
little later in the afternoon.


As always SAFETY is our first concern. While on the water ALL scouts
will be REQUIRED to wear PFDs (Life Jackets). This is NOT negotiable. 


As always our next concern is MANNERS AND GOOD BEHAVIOR.  All of the
captains have generously donated their time and their boats so that we
can have a great day on the water. We actually have all of our captains
returning from last year-Captains Alexander, Cary, Gordon and King. Last
year, All of our scouts behaved and performed in a manner that made me
very proud to be a part of Troop 17.  We get many compliments about how
mannerly and well behaved Troop 17 is.....In fact we were invited back
by Brantley's and the Marina/ Campground. We will be at a new Marina

We plan on continuing this tradition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I am estimating the cost of the trip to be about $50.00 per person. I am
going to negotiate group rates for our group when I know how many total
people we will have.



-Swim Suit







-Change of clothes

-Rain gear

-Water Bottle

-Sleep System


-Soft soled NON-MARKING shoes ie deck shoes or something similar. Crocs,
white soled tennis shoes. Gum soled shoes etc.It is respectful to try to
keep any shoe marks off

Of the boats.


DADS will be responsible for BUGSPRAY.



I will be at the scout meeting Tuesday September 28th to answer any


We are going to be there at a great time of the year. With any luck the
weather will be perfect the bugs will be non existent.


This trip is very weather dependant. If the weather is going to be nasty
WE WILL NOT GO!!!!!   ( We'll be checking Weather Bug) 


"Gentlemen don't sail to weather."


We look forward to a great trip!


Again Please let me know if you are going by October, 9th.


Fair winds and tight sails,


Rusty Huffines aka...Sinse'
