Fall Events 2013

Here are some upcoming events for Troop 433:

This weekend is the Youth Leadership Training class (YLT). It is an all-day class on Saturday September 21 at McFarlane Park on Paper Mill Road. It's a lot of fun and I want to encourage any boy who has not been to attend! There are still plenty of openings, and they will not turn you away if you show up Saturday morning with $25 in your Class-A uniform. Lunch is provided and more information can be found on our troop website.

Go to click Announcements and open the September Chicken Sheet link. Then read the flyer on page 23 of the document.

Water Sports 2:
We are going to Lake Allatoona on the weekend of September 27 for a fun weekend of swimming and boating. We will be working on the canoeing merit badge and small boat sailing. This is an easy dump-camping trip and adults are encouraged to attend. Please sign-up on the troop website's Trip Reservation Form. You know the drill.

Okefenokee Trip:
We have 2 spots left for the Okefenokee trip. This is the weekend of October 4 and is a rare opportunity to canoe through this famous swamp! Those going on this trip need to attend the Water Sports 2 trip to get training on advanced canoeing techniques.

LeConte Mountain Hike:
This trip is the weekend of November 15 to Gatlinburg Tennessee. We will stay in condos (easiest camping trip ever!) and hike up Mt. LeConte and back down in one day. Then we spend Saturday night enjoying pizza at a game-room and a visit to the "cheesy knife shop". Ask the boys who have been before, this is an unforgettable trip.

Make sure you sign up for all trips on our website. Click Trip Reservations on the left-hand menu and open the sign-up form. Add your first name and last initial to the trip you want to go on.
