Klondike, Ski trip, and Comunication merit badge information

posted Jan 17, 2016, 9:44 AM by Riley l.

The Klondike Derby is January 30th.  We'll be leaving the church around 7:00 and returning around 5 or so.  We have 16 scouts signed up, which is our max.  We need payment, $15 at this Thursday's meeting, January 21st.  If you signed up and cannot make it, please let me know ASAP so we can offer the slot to other scouts.  The fee covers registration, the patch, and the food for the day.

Ok, next is the ski trip, February 12-14th.  There are several options for activities, I'll give the prices and you can let us know which ones you prefer.  
The cost for the cabin will be $10/scout, regardless of which ski option they choose.  If parents or other family members wish to do this too, we can get all the tickets together, and the family can meet us up at the ski lodge.
$10.00  Cabin                                              
$43.00  All area lift ticket all day.              
$70.00  All area lift ticket/rental all day    
             Learn to ski/board lift ticket for
$65.00  beginner lift only (no upgrades)       
$28.00  Tubing (3 hours & 45 minutes)          

We need a final headcount and list of activities by our January 28th meeting, with no refunds after that meeting, since we will have sent our payment to Spring Mountain.  Please figure out which activities you want and let Vince Caimi know at  If you need a scout account balance, let me know.

One more item, touched on at our last meeting.  Mr. Dessino was going to run a Communication Merit Badge class on 1/21, but will be away for work, so we will reschedule that for the near future. 

As always, please contact me with any questions.
