Safe at Buccaneer

Posted on Jul 19 2014 - 5:44am

Buccaneer was cut short for a significant breezy weekend!  All were safe, the majority of the troop tents were lost in the storm!  We will be in the process of working toward resupplying the troops tents and much of our fund raising will be devoted to this cause.   Despite the very short weekend, the time with the boys is always worth the adventure and many of them truely have stories they will remember and this day will certainly be a scale for them to compare future storms by!   Its never about the Sunny Days but always the storms we survived!!!     NO MEETING MONDAY    If your not attending SEABASE will see you in August!  It has been a great summer of scouting and the adventures will continue in the FALL!   BE PREPARED!
