Grimes Canoe Trip Aug 2-4 with sister troop 1581


The girls are planning a trip to Grimes Canoe Base August 2nd-4th.  The cost will be at least $19.50 for one day canoeing and two nights in the platform tents.  In addition, we will have transportation costs, we'll need to make our own meals, and kayaks are $18 for the day for each kayak.  We may get a couple and share them (and the cost).

We need to know by July 2nd if any of the boys (and girls for the girl's parents included on this email) and adults are coming with us.  Headcount due the July 2nd, $20 down payment due July 23rd.


Attendees so far:
