  • T94 7/7 Medipark Cleanup and 7/9 meeting

    Saturday 7/7 9:00 am we have Medi Park clean up. It will be a big cleaning event after the 4th all hands needed.

    Troop Meeting at 7:00 with SPL Elections

    Meeting will be backpacking part 2. If you missed the first you still catch up.  Be sure to bring your packs back with the revisions talked about in class. Here is a list and link that Matt asked to share to help use as you repack. It is the recommend list form Philmont, so it will give scouts and parents an idea of what to start buying too.

    The actual Philmont Expedition for our Troop will begin 6/9 at lunch and will end 6/21 at breakfast.  For those going to Philmont the cost is $970.00 + Troop cost for transportation. The first deposit of $535 will be due 9/17. Then the final deposit of $435.00 will be due in February. We must have at least 7, 2 adults and 5 scouts for a crew. Scouts must be 14 years of age or 13 and completed 8th grade.

    The list is below and this is the link

     Your Personal Equipment

    This is a complete list of items that Scouts and their crew will need to prepare for prior to a Philmont summer trek. You may find specific details about items on the Philmont packing list in the Guidebook To Adventure. If you have any questions regarding any items on the equipment list, please contact Philmont’s Tooth of Time Traders at 575-376-2281 or toothoftimetraders@scouting.org.

    You will need 1-2 synthetic insulating layers. All must fit comfortably over each other so they can be worn in combination.

    It is imperative to layer your clothing, combining different garments to achieve protection from the elements and optimum insulation. Synthetic or wool layers are recommended as they insulate when wet. Avoid cotton, as it does not insulate when wet.
