In lieu of the recent weather, we will not be meeting tonight. Even though the roads look fine now, I want to ensure everyone can return home safely this evening.
We will not be camping at Elijah’s retreat this weekend. Instead, we will meet at Blackhawk Creek trail for a 5 mi Map and Compass hike and trail cleanup.
For anyone needing the 5-mile hike for 2nd class or the trail cooking requirements for the Cooking MB, this is a great opportunity to complete those.
We will meet at 11 AM and likely be finished between 3-4 PM. Here is the location – https://maps.app.goo.gl/VSsgByNGjppGcZVV9
Scouts will need to bring a backpack with their 10 essentials (https://scoutingmagazine.org/2013/02/the-10-essentials/), water, snacks, and a trail lunch (cold/dry or hot). Any pruning tools will be helpful as well (small silky saws, lopers, trimmers, etc).
