Farish Campout!

The Farish Campout is this Friday thru Sunday!  Farish is the USAFA recreation area located just north of Rampart Reservoir.  We have a great campsite and lots of fun activities planned, to include Michael Warner’s Eagle Scout Court of Honor on Saturday from 12-3 pm!

If you signed up at the Tuesday meeting you need to meet at the church at 5 pm Friday with all your gear (see the list below).  We will travel to Farish as a group after we pack the Troop gear.  Scouts will return about 3 pm on Sunday; you can expect a call on Sunday about the time we depart Farish with an updated return time.

WE NEED DRIVERS!:  If you can transport Scouts to/from Farish please contact Jim Brinkman via e-mail at t287sm@yahoo.com.  The success of this campout is dependent upon getting all the Scouts and gear to this great camping area!

Individual items to bring to Farish campout:  Scout Handbook, pen, sleeping bag and pad, warm clothes, hat/gloves, flashlight, knife (if you’ve earned the Totin’ chit), camp chair (optional), bowl or plate, cup, spoon/fork, toothbrush/comb, fishing pole (if you want to fish!), water bottle/camelbak, sunscreen.  You can pack all items in a duffel bag or backpack. We will use Troop tents, stoves, and other equipment during the campout. Please show up in your Class A shirt/scarf for travel and use during ceremonies.

See you Friday!
