Reminder: Ski Day Trip Info, February 27, 2021

Posted on Feb 9 2021 - 2:12am

Dear Scouts and Adult Leaders/Parents,

Please find attached the 2021 Ski Trip sign-up form/information. The trip this year is to Hidden Valley Resort on Saturday, February 27, 2021. The 2021 trip will only be a day trip due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All participants will need to be transported to and from the event by their parents. No ride sharing will be allowed. Please fill out the form and provide it to me at a Troop meeting or scan it and email it to me. Payment is to be coordinated with Mr. Metzger. Once Hidden Valley provides me their online Winter Release Waiver link, I will notify the Troop and all participants will need to complete the waiver online prior to the trip. If there are any questions, please contact me.
