Core Skills Weekend POSTPONED TILL 11 AM

We will be heading to the nearby Pickney State Recreation Area for a final boost on everyone's core skills before we head into the winter camping season. Join us for our last trip of 2014. This is also the only non-backpacking trip this fall so if your up for a chill weekend to help master your basic camping skills and prepare you for our spring Trial of Fire then this is the trip for you. We will be doing a small hike with daypack a on the Saturday accompanied with a few stations to practice our first aid and navigation skill along the way. This hike is not particularly long so you don't have to worry if you didn't enjoy the backpacking sequence. You may have noticed that we will be getting back before noon on Sunday, this is not an error. Because of this I do not want to hear the lame "too much homework" excuse. However it is going to be very cold this weekend so dress warmly. Bring as many layers as you can fit, more than the gear list mentions!!! This weekend will be fun and chill (pun intended) only if you are dressed correctly.  There is currently a forcasted low of 25 degrees and a chance of sleet so dress warmly.  Cold weather should not however deter you from coming on the trip, if you ask an older scout what their favorite campout has been I gurentee you that around half of them will name one of our many winter campouts.  This weekend is also one of the few outdoor camping trips before the next TOF so if you want to level up, then you might just want to come out.
