Nov 18-20: Upper Verde River Backpack

Posted by tking on Oct 12 2016 - 1:53pm

The November outing is a backpack scheduled for November 18-20. This will be a backpack to a NEW area that our troop has not visited before, near the headwaters of the Verde River near Paulden.  This is a good backpack for new scouts. The location for our camp is less than three miles from the trailhead. We will be camping by the river, and there are some very interesting places to explore including ancient cliff dwellings. This will be a good outing to see wildlife, so keep your eyes open. We will be traveling to the trailhead on Friday night and backpacking into the canyon on Saturday. Expect the days to be in the sixties and near freezing at night. A Fact Outing Sheet will be available soon.


Oct. 29th & Nov. 5th: Nathan Nguyen's Eagle Project

Nathan Nguyen will be collecting and organizing books, which will be then taking to the Phoenix Children's Hospital and added to their library.

He is asking for book donations from the troop - you can bring books to the troop meetings or contact Nathan to arrange an alternate drop off time.

On Saturday October 29th at 8 am, we will be distributing flyers indesignated neighborhoods. The following Saturday, November 5th , we will be collecting the books, bringing them to Nathan's house to clean, sort, and count.

He needs both Boy Scouts and adults to help drive.

We need to know if you plan to attend this base camp. Can you please go to the web site and RSVP if you plan to attend? This will give us an idea of a headcount for planning purposes for both the NAU game and a trip to Lowell.
