Congratulations to Austin Lind for achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.
Austin is an outstanding young man of “Scouting Character” who joins the esteemed list of Eagle Scouts from Chanhassen Troop 330.
Austin is a kind, quiet, and upbeat leader with demonstrated history of service to his faith community, neighbors, and country. At 17 1/2 yrs, he has enlisted in the National Guard, with a hopeful eye to serve his country in the future through the ROTC program. We are confident Austin has the determination, integrity, and character to be great leader in the future.
We have a reservation for 8 people to camp in Eagle Cave for Jan 30 – 31 with the late 1:00 lunch in the cave. The eagle cave camp out is wonderful way to experience camping and explore the cave. This camp out is always a scout favorite with wonderful memories.
It is $53/person and I put down a $5/person deposit. We will need to get them the final numbers by Dec 15. I will need another adult.
We will leave at 7:00 AM on Saturday (eat a good breakfast at home prior to leaving) and back at 2:00 on Sunday (lunch on the road — bring spending money).
The North Wind winter campout is scheduled for Jan 9 – 10 at Stearn Boys Scout camp by Annandale Mn. This event is wonderful way to experience the winter camping in controlled and fun environment.
