Do not bring your own PFDs (personal flotation devices) for the HA trip. They will be provided.
Urgent: Greg LeBlanc sent an email on 7/3/2012 with all Scouts and Adults who are missing forms. Please refer to the email for which forms you are missing. Forms are also available here: High Adventure - July 7th
Hopefully, this will answer any remaining questions prior to our Saturday departure. Also, click on the image at the bottom for a summary
of our itinerary for reference.
have had one change in our adult attendance. Thom Sumner will not be in attendance. Patrol assignments remain
as they were.
Check-in…be at the hut at 6:30pm with your duffle bags and dry bags ready
to load on the bus and van. We will also load the food, gear, etc.
Plan on staying until completion.
any outstanding forms to Friday’s check-in and give to Greg. Greg sent a
list of missing forms.
any final payments and give to Joel.
your passport to the Friday check-in and give to Greg. We will collect
them so none get lost during the trip. Make a copy to keep at home.
Departure…be at the hut at 6am for a 6:30am departure. Our itinerary
for the day includes a stop at the New River Gorge Bridge and we need to arrive
in Dayton before 7pm. Bring your day packs with whatever travel stuff you
need. We will not have access to the duffle bags or dry bags while
attire…wear HA 2012 t-shirt, cargo type shorts (no gym shorts, jeans or cut
offs), tennis shoes or docksiders (no flip flops). NOTE:
Be sure your son packs his Class B uniform (scout shirt, red troop t-shirt,
scout shorts, scout socks, shoes), when possible we will wear this when eating
T-shirts…if you did not receive 3 HA shirts, the balance of shirts are in
and will be handed out at Friday’s check-in.
Snacks…the Troop is providing travel snacks, etc. Please minimize the
amount of extra candy, gum, etc you send with your son. We will be on the
bus over 40 hours combined for this trip and keeping our wonderful asset (the
bus) in good condition ensures long term use by not only us but future T33
scouts. We will take required bio breaks and snack breaks while traveling
thus NO EATING on the bus.
Money…the Troop pays for all meals
during the trip. However, if your son wants to buy souvenirs, ice cream,
etc at some of our stops then he’ll need some spending money. Recommend
you minimize this as keeping up with their money (& any electronics they
bring) is their responsibility.
your son requires daily medications please let Greg know. He will get
with one of the adults in your son’s crew to insure they take their medications
Looking forward to a wonderful trip!
