July 29 9:00 Orienteering and Physical Skills at HFCHS

All scouts are invited to run Andrew’s Eagle project orienteering course at Holy Family Catholic High School in Victoria on Saturday July 29th at 9:00 AM.  If you have one, bring a compass, GPS handheld or cell phone with GPS app. We will also be completing the physical skills benchmark.

Scouts should dress comfortably (uniform not required), wear sunscreen & athletic shoes, and bring a filled water bottle.  Meet down by the football field running track.  This is a fair weather event. A cancellation notice will be posted here by 8:00 AM on the 29th so check here before you drive out.

This event will work towards Tenderfoot physical fitness skills (Requirement #6a & 6b) along with First Class orienteering (#4a & 4b). Contact Mrs. Olmsted or Mr. Walker with questions.
