(CANCELLED) Backpacking Shakedown for Saturday Feb 20th

Posted on Feb 19 2021 - 4:39pm

2/19/21 Update: Cancelled due to weather and icy conditions. From Scout Coordinator: Gavin Schlichtenmyer: We have just contacted the park service in charge of the trail we chose for the shake down hike on the 20th, they said that the trail was very icy and slippery right now and recommended that we not use it. So sadly, the shake down hike tomorrow is canceled. YIS, Gavin

Posted 2/18/21:

I just wanted to update you all on the weather conditions for the backpaking shakedown hike on Saturday. Conditions will be cold and windy, the high temperature will be 26F with a wind chill into the teens. So please ensure that you are dressed properly and properly equipped for these conditions. Additionally, due to the weather today and tomorrow I'm unsure if the trail will be open, I will contact the park service tomorrow afternoon and early Saturday and will send out an update in the event that hike has to be cancelled due to the trail being closed. YIS, Gavin

Aviation Spring Camporee 2021 is postponed to Spring 2022

Posted on Jan 5 2021 - 9:18pm

First I want to thank all those who had added their energy and ideas to the planning of the Aviation Camporee, sadly we are faced with the reality that a gathering of some 500 scouts and adults in 90 days simply is not going to be possible. We are not defeated however and we will be scheduling and planning for this event next spring (2022). Stay tuned. Mr. Young

Posted on Nov 23 2020 - 10:49am

As announced by Scoutmaster David Young on Sunday November 22nd:

Good evening, hope everyone is looking forward to Thanksgiving in whatever form it may take for your families this year.

Rather than wait for mandates from BSA or Health officials Troop Leadership has decided to return to Virtual only Troop meetings starting Tomorrow (11/23/20).

Watch for a follow up email with Zoom log on credentials.

After our opening we will break out into our Merit Badge Groups then Regroup about 8pm for announcements and closing.

See you then.
