- Fish Fry – I believe (as of today) we have enough participants. This is for our chartering org so it’s an important one for us. They boys will get food there.
- Planning Trip – This is a mandatory activity as it sets the planning for the year. We have a secret destination that the adults (bears) have planned for the boys. I’m super excited about this years destination.
We still need a few volunteers for our Fish Fry on Friday. Please reach out if you are available.
As of now the tentative date for our shakedown trip is June 22nd through the 24th. Please check right away to make sure you are available this weekend.
I created a quick Google Form with the fields required for each participant on the official roster. I would like to have that completed by March 31st so that I can submit it, and get it out of the way.
The form is available at: https://goo.gl/forms/O1DB2aivIXesSgZj1
At least one adult in our group must have completed following BSA e-certifications: Weather Hazards, Safety Afloat, and Safe Swim Defense. Information on the courses can be found at the bottom of the following page: https://www.scouting.org/training/adult/
I did go back and clarify the fishing pole restrictions. Under Optional Crew Gear on page 26 of the Advisors Planning Guide, part two, it says “Crews are allowed 1-2 poles per crew”.
As of now, I have dumped most of the relevant information about the trip on Troop 113’s website at http://bayporttroop113.org/northerntier/ . Below I have included direct links to some of the PDFs I mentioned earlier tonight.

We will need volunteers for Friday. They were short staffed last Friday and they were hoping that we would have more this week. We will get the five to six boys we need tonight.
We have one more fish fry this week. Would love to get six boys involved. Time and location is the same.
