January Ski & Tubing Campout

posted Jan 6, 2019, 10:42 AM by Greg Ehmann   [ updated Jan 15, 2019, 9:02 AM ]

Lots of interest in this campout, and I need everyone signed up by Monday night the 7th. I've attached the flyer again, but here are some important things to remember about this campout:
* We're leaving Saturday afternoon at 1 pm to drive up to Wisconsin, where we'll spend the night in a lodge preparing for the following day's activities. We'll also work on the classroom requirements of the Snow Sports Merit Badge at this time.
* We'll tube/ski/snowboard on Sunday and get back to the church parking lot around 7 pm that evening.
* The attached release forms MUST be completed and signed before we leave - let's get these filled out and signed on Monday night the 7th. If you and/or your son are tubing, fill out and complete the tubing release form. If you and/or your son are skiing or snowboarding, then complete that release form. If you want to do both (there would be an additional $20 fee), then complete both release forms.
* We need at least 15 Scouts and Scouters to get this group rate, so please let's sign up and make this a great experience. Every participant will get a lift ticket, equipment rental and a helmet. Lessons will also be provided for all beginners. This is Scout Sunday at Cascade Mountain, and you just can't beat this deal!
