Thank you to Mr. Chermack and Mr. Bolenbaugh for registering as adult leaders for this trip to make it happen!!! You are great leaders and I, our parents and scouts appreciate your dedication.

Right now I am tracking 11 Scouts and 2 Adults

So, The boys that were selected to buy food should buy the food based on the plan at the last meeting. Meal plans were made at Tuesdays meeting. Plan on Budgeting $10 per scout in your individual patrols.  It should be 4 meals…Saturday Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and Sunday Breakfast. I recommend a cold breakfast on Sunday because it will be a quick shutdown.
