March Troop Day Hike:

March 19, 2016

Saturday, March 19th at the Quabbin Reservation MA. We will meet at the parish center for a 9:00 AM departure. We will return for pick up at the parish center by 4:00 PM that evening. Scouts need to bring: a bag lunch, poncho or rain coat if it looks like rain that day, boots, a hat and gloves/mittens. A spare pair of socks is a must to bring. If the weather is cold, bring a warm coat as well. Scouts should bring at least one quart/liter of water (no soda, juice, punch, etc.). Do not bring water in disposable water bottles – get a canteen or hiking water bottle at Wal-Mart, Target, etc. for about $10. Scouts need to bring a day pack (school pack will work fine) to carry their personal and troop gear for the day.
We will divide the scouts into age/ability groups and cover distances that are comfortable for each group. At the end of the hike we will have some of Troop 4′s famous fried dough!
If you son will be attending the hike, please complete the attached permission slip and return no later than the March 10th troop meeting. If you son would like to attend but won’t be at this troop meeting, please call or email Brian Weber. We will need a few parents to drive to/from and/or stay for the event. If you can help out please indicate on the permission slip.
