Any Scout who wishes to participate on the day hike may do so, even if you were not on the initial list. Just let me know so we can ensure sufficient drivers. The new plan:
a) Schedule : Start gathering at the Church at 9:00 am, we'll depart at 9:30. Blue Hills by 10:00 am and start hiking; be back to the Church around 3-330 pm - but we'll call when we leave.
b) Lunch - Scouts will still bring day packs and we'll still use the light weight stoves. However, Scouts should plan to bring snacks to augment the planned hot soup. Still need two nalgenes of water, and the 10 essentials; minimally: a compass if you have one, sun protection, rain protection, headlamp/flashlight, hiking first aid kit, and snacks.
c) Driving Logistics : I am assuming our drivers are still available - please let me know if that is no longer the case.
d) class B's : Wear your class-B's please.
e) SMC's and BOR's : Scouts who were going to do Scoutmaster Conferences and Board of Reviews on the campout will still be able to do them on the hike during lunch. Please bring your books.
