Troop 330 – Philmont Crew in 2016!

Troop 330 has been awarded a crew spot for August 2016 in a second lottery that was held by the BSA. I have copied the pertinent trip details in terms of cost, schedule, and participants. The cost is the bare minimum as it does not include travel to and from NM, meals, gear, etc.  We need to get in front of the boys who would be 14 yrs old by 8/6/16 and see what interest there is.  They will have to commit $100 each by 1/24/15, and at least two adults will have to sign up as well.   It is time for those interested to step up, say yes and then work to make the trip a success.
