The Mint tour is this Monday! This is an all day event so come prepared! Here is the itinerary.
8:30 am: Meet at WUMC (please be prompt!). Depart for Denver.
11 am – 12 pm: Families tour mint. Tour participants must be at the tour entrance 30 minutes prior to scheduled tour (10:30 am for this group). While families/guests are touring the mint, Scouts will be working on coin collecting merit badge requirements in the vicinity of the mint.
12:30-1:30 pm: Scout leaders and Scouts tour mint (12 pm at the tour entrance). Previous tour group waits at the collection point (TBD, bring a frisbie or book!).
After we have regrouped we will head to a late lunch on the way home. We should be back at WUMC about 4:15-4:30 pm.
Scouts need to wear Class A shirt; bring their coin collection merit badge worksheets and pen; bring a completed “BSA Parent Permission Form” if unaccompanied by a parent (available under “downloads” at http://www.bsatroop287.org/); and bring about $10-15 for lunch/snacks and to help cover parking fees. If you bring your own lunch/snacks, please bring about $5 to help cover parking and any additional costs.
I’ll put together a handout that will include the address of the mint, the itinerary, driver contact information, and other important info. See you Monday morning!
