3/14 Troop Meeting & Grand Canyon High Adventure


This is a reminder that our 3/14/17 Troop meeting is offsite; I distributed an email earlier with information about the meeting location. If anyone has questions, please contact Mr. Benyi.

Also, please see the following message from Joe Hart about our upcoming high adventure outing to the Grand Canyon. (I sent out a signup for the outing last week; please sign up if you are planning to attend.) Please feel free to contact Joe or I if you have questions about the trip.

Thanks, Mr. Benyi…


Hey Scouts and awesome adult leadership!

We have an exciting high adventure hiking trip coming up!

March 24 & 25 will be our high adventure trip to the Grand Canyon. Our task will be to hike from Rim to River to Rim on Saturday. This will be a very challenging hike; we will travel approximately 17 miles and will hike down, then UP, almost 5,000 feet.

Scouts must be 14 years old and First Class to attend this trip. The cost of the trip is $20 which covers gas and the park entrance fee. All food will be handled individually.

We will meet at CCC on Friday, March 24 and will travel to the South Rim of the Canyon. We will have dinner along the way and then will camp in the National Forest that evening. (It can be chilly on top of the Rim in March, so be prepared.) We will get in the morning and begin the hike. Each scout should bring trail food for Breakfast and Lunch. We will stop again for dinner on our way home, and should be back in Scottsdale by Saturday evening.
