Hello Troop 648

Some final comments for this weekend’s (March, 18-20) Family Campout!

  • We have reserved the Gila Monster group site in Catalina State Park – approx 109 miles, about 1 hour 46 mins
    1. I-10 E, 85.7 mi
    2. Take exit 240 for Tangerine Rd
    3. Turn left onto W Tangerine Rd, 12.8 mi
    4. Turn right at E Innovation Park Dr, destination will be on the left, look for info on Gila Monster site, it’s in the Ringtail Loop area.
  • We have the site from 2pm Friday to 2pm Sun
  • If you park at the site, it’s $15/day. Please pay at the guardhouse. If you arrive after 5:30pm, there is a box next to the guardhouse where you can pay.
  • Camping site has restrooms, showers
  • Looks like there will be a contingent heading to Tombstone on Sat, so we can coordinate Friday night or Sat am. Some may be heading to the Biosphere as well.
  • Group dinner on Sat night. Bring you entree and a side to share
  • We will have opportunities for rank requirements. Please remind your Scout to BRING THEIR SCOUT BOOK!
  • Temps should be in the mid 80s and lows in the mid 50s
  • Can someone bring down some firewood for Sat night? If so, please let me know. You can pick it up from the church, east side of the shed.
  • If you can’t make it, but your Scout would like to go, let me know. PLENTY of room so don’t let your Scout miss this great trip!

It’s shaping up to be a awesome weekend!

See you Friday night!
