Final Information about this Weekend’s Outing

Hello Troop 648

Some final information regarding our outing to the Blue Ridge Reservoir area this weekend, June 26-28.

  • We will meet at the church near the trailer between 4:30-5:00pm
  • Highs expected to be in the low to mid 90s and lows at night in the high 50s, low 60s. Suggest your Scout brings a sweatshirt or light jacket.
  • There is a slight change for rain so you may suggest to your Scout that they pack some rain gear
  • We have 8 Scouts and 7 Scouters that will be attending
  • It has been pretty wet up there over the last few weeks, so your Scout may want to bring some insect repellent
  • If your Scout would like to bring their phone, they must have completed the Cyber Chip program – you can find it here -
  • Please reminder to bring a completed outing permission form, which you can find on our website, $12 for gas, probably around $15 for patrol food (Scouts are eating as a patrol, so no need to bring food), though please note this may go up or down as food will be procured tomorrow and some $money for a fast food dinner on Friday night
  • We will be canoeing on the Blue Ridge Reservoir on Saturday. Your Scout is welcome to fish, but they will need to bring their own equipment and a license. For fishing license and purchasing online, go here -
  • If you have any questions, please email me at [email protected]

Looking forward to a great trip to the cool pines!
