Disc Golf and Bag Drag
I hope that you all enjoyed Ryan Foley’s presentation on Monday. I certainly learned a lot about backpacking that I didn’t know beforehand.
Next week we will be meeting at Overlook Park at 7pm on Monday, June 15 for an evening of disc golf. If you have disc golf equipment, please mark your name on it and bring it! Families are also welcome to play.
The meeting will also be a bag check for our Showdown hike that next weekend. Please bring your packed bag for inspection. Remember; food is on-your-own for this campout and everything except water must be hauled. We will have several Troop tents there so that they can be divvied up and put in your packs.
For our Showdown hike, we will leave on Friday after work and hike the mountain on Friday evening. We will have daylight very late at this point in June. We will make camp at summit and will be doing forestry service projects for Showdown all day on Saturday. As Father’s Day is Sunday, please invite your families to join us at the campfire on Saturday evening. We will have very little camp to break down on Sunday morning, and should be back early so that Father’s can celebrate the day with their extended families.
Have a great Scouting week!
