We have changed the Sunday menu a bit.  We will be eating on the road for
Brunch, so plan on breakfast $$ for a fast food stop.


We will see you at 4:30p in the Hut parking lot on Friday!

Hi folks, Welcome back from your vacations!  Hal & I are working on making
reservations for our first trip (in 2 weeks) of the Fall Scouting season.
We need to have an idea of the attendance in order to reserve the campsites.
So far we have 6 (see below) reserved spots.


This section of the New River has proven to be an exciting run in the past
with lots of whitewater action as well as no shortage of wildlife.  This is
the only area that we have seen Bald Eagles feeding on trout.  There have
also been spottings of the "wild" Bubba Lewis feeding in the deep pools
below the campsite area.


Thank you and please register by mid-week if you are planning on attending.

Hello Folks, I hope you all are having a wonderful Summer!  Hal and I are
busy keeping our scouting program active and exciting.  It is time to put on
your calendars, our next trip to the New River near Crumpler, NC.  We will
be camping in the Twin Rivers Campground and canoeing a section of the New
River on Saturday - returning Sunday early afternoon.  This will be a
similar trip to the recent Dan River canoe trip.


Meal Prep (boys prepare your own for Saturday): 

Friday: bring a sub to eat when we get there.  

Saturday:  Breakfast, Dinner in camp  Lunch & Snacks on the river.

Sunday: Breakfast (Leaders will prepare for the scouts).  Have $$ for lunch
on the road. 


2 Liters of water on the river


Dad's, we will need one or two vehicles that can pull a light trailer.  We
will no longer need anyone to put canoes on their roof (new trailer setup).
