Vermont Ski Trip 

What a great trip this was!  The skiing was phenomenal, the food was great and plentiful, and the memories we all built will be everlasting. 

No injuries to report for our Scouts this year - thank God!  However, our adventurous ski club host Joe Decker did sustain a few bruises and cuts attempting to do a helicopter over the 30 foot cliffside.  He normally lands this jump just fine, but visibility was a bit poor...  Check out the picture - let's just call the cut a shaving mishap!

Please thank your Scouts for their contributions and positive attitudes. 5:00 AM starts at the lodge in order to be on the slopes by 8:30 AM - without any adult coaxing!  A special thanks to our adult leaders, our Troop's certified ski instructor, and our "Lodge Mom".  Must say that we all might have gotten a bit spoiled on this trip by Liz and Lisa Also, many thanks to Mrs. Whittle for shopping and pre-cooking all that bacon and chicken - delicious!

So, who is in for next year?

Winter Klondike Signup is Offline 

The online signup for the Winter Klondike Derby has been taken down. Mr. Smith took a headcount of scouts that were interested in attending the Winter Klondike during the Holiday Troop Meeting. That list is now the master signup list. All scouts and adults that signed up online have been transferred. If you signed up online there is no need to signup again with Mr. Smith.
