Ski Trip 2019 Rescheduled - RSVP By 2/26!

Posted by zwgordon on Feb 22 2019 - 10:08pm

Troop Families,

   Thank you for your interest in the troop ski trip.  If I haven't already made it clear this trip has been cancelled due to rain.  I would like to see if there is any interest in moving the trip back one week to Sunday March 3, 2019.  The long range forecast for Jack Frost is calling for cloudy weather, AND NO RAIN. I wouldn't have thought to include a rain date for a ski trip.
