Troop 48 Update - 8/2/15‏

Posted on Mon, Aug 3, 2015

August Camping / Canoeing Trip - $40 Due Tuesday night

On August 14th we will be canoeing along the Eleven Point River in Southeast Missouri. We will be camping Friday night at 11 Point River Canoe Rental. Their office is at the Intersection of US 160 and State Highway 19 in Alton, MO. The estimated drive time is 4 hours / 203 miles. We will camp along the river on Saturday night. Scouts and adults must have taken a BSA swim check and be classified as a “BSA Swimmer” (not a Beginner) prior to the trip. The cost of this trip, for our Scouts, registered adults and dads, is $40, which is discounted from the $60 actual cost. This discount was made possible by the great barbecue fundraiser we had. The $40 is due on this Tuesday, August 4th.

Swim Check – Tuesday at 6 pm at LifeTime Fitness

This Tuesday at 6pm is the second and final swim test of the year at LifeTime Fitness in Collierville. ASM Rob Ragland will greet you at the front desk and direct you to the swim test area. Tests will be quick and done by 6:30, so don't be late. We have a regular troop meeting at 7pm the same night.

There is no cost, but if you attempted the swim test earlier this year and did not pass as Swimmer then we only expect to re-test if you have taken lessons or made other serious strides to improve. All first time scouts and dads are welcome. As you know, in order to attend the upcoming canoe trip you must be classified as a Swimmer.
