    KLONDIKE DETAILS 

    Hey Klondiker’s

    For those going to Klondike, I just wanted to send a note with the details we talked about last night.

    We will be in McBride Cabin at Beaumont

    • Meet at the Administration building at 6pm (Be already fed dinner)
    • We will leave at 6:15
    • We will be back on Sunday by 11:30am

    **BE PREPARED FOR ANYTHING THIS WEEKEND**

    Be prepared for the cold, wet – all of the above plus more.  Bring extra dry clothes, shoes & socks.  Bring an actual coat & gloves and hat.  Bring a pair of house shoes to wear only in the cabin.  Warm sleeping bag!

    You do not need to bring your full mess kit.  You will only need your utensils, a drinking cup & water bottle.

    Electronics are ok for this weekend, but bring at your own risk.  Don’t forget your Scout Handbooks.

    If for some reason you aren’t able to make it this weekend please call me and let me know so we aren’t waiting for you.  314-591-6800

    See you all tonight,

    Mr. Piel

      Raiden will not be able to attend the bike ride tonight, as he is grounded. (Possibly for life) And I have a meeting to attend.

      Sorry I can’t make it. Had to work late

      Hi Tony, I am sending you a letter from Father’s Club President, Chris Roth. I am not sure what the Troop’s connection is with FC. The Pack’s Charter Organization is FC, so we do help/volunteer on their fundraisers from time to time. I still think they confuse the whole Pack/Troop thing. I have explained it a number of times…… Check it out and tell me what you think. Thank you, Jessie
