We are in the process of ordering food and trying to get organized for
our 2/3 camping trip at the McQueen Farm. So if you are planning to
attend, please register at our website before the 7:00 meeting tonight @ 


A few comments on this trip:


1.       This is key for new scouts to get started in the Boy Scout
System of leadership and service.

2.       Don't worry about the cold, we'll have good fires and the boys
will be fine in their sleeping bags with long johns during the night.

3.       This, as all trips, is very important for the boys to advance
in rank.

4.       Dads, don't feel obligated to attend all of the trips, the boys
really need the first few trips without their parents to learn how to be
"Boy Scout Independent" - they are really ready for some independence. 

5.       Should you have any questions or concerns about the trip please
contact John or me to discuss.


We're very excited about the next year and look forward to having a very
active Boy Scout Troop. Also, please mark the week of July 4th for
summer camp.

*         We depart at 1:30 on July 1st and pick-up is the morning of
July 7th.
