For all scouts and parents interested in any high adventure backpacking trip over the next several years…
Marta Henshaw from Backwoods will be doing a “Gear Talk” on February 3 at 6 PM at Prairie Star Middle School prior to the Troop meeting. This will be your opportunity to hear about the newest and best gear to take with you in your pack. She will also be giving tips on how to pack your backpack. You will have an opportunity to ask her any gear related questions.
Please RSVP to Krista Cox by 1/31 if you are coming.
