Information on Upcoming Ft. Tuthill Outing – January 20-22

Hello Troop 648

Our annual ‘Family Campout’ is coming up this weekend! We will be traveling to the wintery conditions of Ft. Tuthill, just south of Flagstaff, AZ. The forecast calls for snow which should make the trip all that more special!

We have plenty of tent campsites and a ‘Yurt’ – a canvas sided, wood floor tent that also features bunk beds and a wood-fired stove. The Yurt is reserved for any mom/woman attending the outing this weekend. We have the Yurt and tent sites for Friday and Saturday nights.

Given that it will be a bit on the chilly side, we will not have our pot luck dinner Saturday night, but will instead visit a local restaurant. Also, please be sure to pack for the cold. This is the one outing where travel and equipment will be your personal responsibility. I will be taking up a 2-top burner, a stove, a few pots and pans and cooking utensils if you want to use them for either Sat/Sun breakfast or Sat lunch.

We need to finalize the attendees, so please email ([email protected]) or call (602) 793-1058 me as soon as possible. I need the exact attendee list by Wednesday, 10:00am.

There will be lots to do if you plan on going. Zip Lines, Tree Top Adventure Course, tubing/sledding (depending on snow), skiing (if you want to go to Snowbowl) and other (maybe a ‘pelt-the-Scoutmaster-with-snowballs’ game…). Don’t miss out on this great winter adventure!

See you tomorrow night!
