Skiing Trip: 8 January 2011

We will leave from the Church at 7:30 am on Saturday January 8, 2011.


Dear Troop 007:
This is a reminder that our annual ski/snowboard/snowtubing trip is coming up this Saturday, Jan. 8 at Whitetail in Mercersburg, PA.  We will meet at the church at 7:30 am on Saturday morning to make sure we have everyone, and to carpool if folks wish to.  I have attached directions below -- I think the drive will take about an hour and change.
REMINDER:  If you have not already turned them in, please bring (1) the Whitetail registration form (goes to Eric Bishop), and (2) the Troop 007 annual permission form (goes to me).  The troop form is in the Resources section of this website and attached below in case folks need another copy. 
Weather conditions:  The forecast for Mercersburg is for seasonably cold weather.  The high is supposed to be 28 degrees (we've had colder in past years).  There also could be some snow, both on the ground from Friday and perhaps even some still coming down when we get there.  The chance of snow is 70 percent on Friday, dropping to 30 percent on Saturday -- I will try to find out how many inches are predicted before this weekend, but as of now, the forecast is just for snow "showers."  This could translate into very nice snow for skiers!  The trip to Whitetail is on Interstate most of the way, but drivers might want to think about all-wheel, four-wheel or at least front-wheel drive vehicles just in case. 
Drivers:  Most folks are likely to go in family groups, but we will try to get a sense of who is riding with whom, particularly if you are taking unrelated Scouts up.  During the afternoon at Whitetail, I will be parked in the lodge, so please check out with me when your family group leaves, so we can make sure everyone is accounted for.
Thanks, and happy skiing! 

Mr. Alden
