Good Evening Scouts and Scouters,
New Cross Over Scouts NEED to bring PACKED backpacks to the meeting on September 8th and it may be a good idea for any Scout who has not yet went on a backpacking trip with the Troop to do so as well.
Parents Scouts really need to be aware of the weight of the backpack that scouts will carry.
Only about 1/3 of their body weight is the max. and Scoutmaster Altmiller would prefer them to only carry 1/4 of their body weight.
The attachments are only guides. Families are highly encouraged families to read it thru carefully and help your Scout to pack. Please make sure your Scout is involved in the packing procedure. They must know where the items are in the pack. Otherwise they simply tell our Scoutmaster that they don’t have it.
It is suppose to be nice weather this weekend but this is Oregon (always pack rain gear).
Remember our nights/mornings are getting cooler as well.
