Reminder:  There is no regular Troop meeting this Tuesday, only those taking the Aviation Merit Badge will meet Tuesday at the church at 7 PM.


Free Hiking Shoes

This note is from Mr. Issing:

My brother-in-law works for Oboz Footwear in Bozeman, Montana and travels throughout North America demonstrating the Oboz line of hiking and backpacking shoes to stores like Outdoors, Inc. Because of a change in shoe colors, he has a selection of demonstration shoes available just for the asking.  (Some have had many a foot placed inside them but he states that they look to be "hardly worn".) This model is called the Arete Low and they are my go-to hiking shoe which I wore every other day at Skymont this past summer. These are not waterproof shoes but they do feel like a light running shoe. (They are considered 'trail runners'.) Sizes and colors are limited and although these are adult men's shoes, he does translate some of the sizes to boys' sizes. So, if you have a desire for a pair just send me a separate e-mail with the size and color. (He will send them to me for later distribution.) 


Below are the colors and sizes and there is only one pair per size so first come, first served. Offer ends September 19, 2022.


Sizes 9, 10, 11.5 and 13 in red.

Sizes 6, 6.5, and 7 that will fit boys' size 4.5, 5, and 5.5 in light purple.
