Here's some more information on what's going on for Josh Miller's Eagle Project on Friday:
I'll be taking the first group of boys up to Island Park Friday morning. Please meet at my house Friday at 8 am. Boys assigned to ride with me include: Ethan Taylor, Ethan Farnes, Liam Davidson, Dean Halvorsen, Talon Shiffler,and Austin Kukenbacher.
Those coming with me need to bring a sack lunch in addition to the gear listed below.
Paul Fairbourn will be leaving from the Tiebreaker Church at 4:30 pm Friday. Those assigned to go with him include Zack Hinkley, Samuel Cody, Tyson Tolman, Luke Patterson, and Hunter Reinbolt.
Scouts need to bring a sleeping bag and a change of clothing. Clothing should include long pants and a long-sleeved shirt. Work gloves will also be handy. It's also a good idea to bring a few snacks and a water bottle.
I have a family wedding to attend at noon Saturday, so I and a group of boys will be coming home early Saturday morning. Others will stay later, but everyone should be home by 5 pm Saturday.
We will be bringing one of the big tents, and Scouts who wish to may camp outside. Those who want to sleep inside the cabin have committed to completing a few Cycling or Communication merit badge requirements to earn the privilege of sleeping in the Miller Cabin.
Again, we remind our Scouts to be respectful of the Miller's property, and be grateful that they're allowing us to use it for our June adventure.
A note of congratulation: Luke Patterson had his board of review tonight, officially earning him the ranks of Boy Scout, Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class. Additionally, Dean Halverson had his board of review tonight and officially earned his Star rank. We'll have a court of honor June 29 to reward the boys for their hard work. Every scout in the troop has earned something, so your attendance on the 29th -- 7 pm at the Tiebreaker Church -- will be appreciated.
