REI Backpacking Basics Class for Philmont Scouts, May 29

Scouts,

We have a few spots left in the REI Backpacking Basics class on May 29th 7:00p-8:30p.  This class is geared toward those scouts headed for Philmont.  The class size is limited so I would ask that you only register for this class if you are thinking about Philmont in the near future.  To attend Philmont you must be 14 years old or have completed the 8th grade and be 13 years old by the date you arrive at Philmont. To register follow the link. For those that are attending the class we will look to carpool where possible.

There will be a regular Troop meeting held at FUMC on May 29th for all those scouts not attending the REI class.

Thanks,
John Brannon
