Tuesday, September 23 Meeting Reminder and Location Change

Hello Troop 648

A reminder that tomorrow night’s meeting, Tuesday, September 23rd, will be on the lake at Chaparral Park.  The Scouts will be putting the last two weeks of practice at the Weinhold’s pool to work as they spend the evening canoeing on the lake.

Don’t forgot:

– Wear a swim suit and bring a towel just in case, though we will not be working on swamping or canoe tipping tomorrow night

– You may want to bring a headlamp. The lake is not fully illuminated and a headlamp will come in handy.

– You MUST wear a PFD (personal flotation device). The troop has plenty if you don’t have or want to bring one.

– You MUST have a swim/canoe buddy, no solo canoeing. We will organize swim buddies lakeside.

– If possible, please arrive around 6:45pm to help unload the canoes and equipment

We are in need of adult volunteers to help tomorrow night.  Without a minimum of 4, we will have to cancel the event.  To date, we have 1 adult confirmed.  We also need someone to help Andy Gay with picking up the canoes around 6pm.  Please contact me (Doug) at (602) 793-1058 regarding volunteering.  Kevin Weinhold is the Scout in charge and can answer any other questions.

The park is about 12 minutes from Blessed Sacrament and is located on Hayden and Chaparral. Entrance to the boat ramp and parking lot where we will be located is off Chaparral and is about 1/4 mile east of Hayden.  See map below.
