WHITEWATER RAFTING - New River West Virginia May 2006

Note: Picture CD's from this trip are available for anyone requesting them.


Troop 11 Class B red shirts - Are available for a special sale price of $15 each, 2/$25, or 3/$35 (3 are required for Summer Camp).  We also have youth small shirts available for younger siblings due to vendor's error.

White Water Rafting Trip was a great success. Join us by reviewing our photo albums of the adventure. Our troop was divided into three rafts for the trips each one having a guide from Ultimate Rafting Adventures in West Virginia - Zach, Chris, and Randy.

Advancement at meetings - are you getting your work done at home and informing your counselor?  Contact your counselor to see if he/she will be at this meeting.  Remember it is up to you to take the initiative, not the counselor's job to bug you.
