Weekly Post, Week of August 26, 2012

Post date: Aug 26, 2012 9:12:15 PM

Greetings Troop 737!

The PLC has met and we are ready for our first meeting of the year. We have two upcoming events that will happen quickly after we have our first meeting in a little over a week. First is the 14er day trip. Our HALOs; Mrs. and Mr. Palmer are hard at work picking a good local mountain that we can climb. The second is the Denver Area Camporee in September. I have signed the troop up and made a deposit for 25 participants. This number is probably too low for the number of scouts that we think will come. Here is the important part; the signup sheet will be available at the first meeting. All scouts and adults that sign up on this first evening will have the discounted rate of $20 plus food. Scouts signing up after August 31 will have to pay and extra $10.

Upcoming Activities and Sign up & Payment Deadlines:

First Regular Troop Meeting – Peaceful Valley Slide Show and 14ER day trip prep – August 27 at 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM at ELC:
