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.

Yours in Scouting
I am sure this warm weather has everyone thinking about summer camp. I will have paper forms available tonight at the Court of Honor, but for those of you who can not make it to the Court because they live in Michigan or some equally good reason, I thought I should send them electronically as well.

Scouts and Scouters,
After many years of promising to organize a trip to seabase, I’ve finally gotten off my kiester and am ready to inform and explore interest in this high-adventure.
We will meet on Saturday, December 16 at 1 pm in the Bayport Library. I’ve yet to reserve the room, so watch for a follow up email to confirm the meeting location and time.
There are a couple of deadlines looming, so we will need to gauge interest, form crews, create an account, and be ready to submit for a 2019 adventure by Jan 23, 2018.
Another option would be to register for any remaining open adventures in 2018. I’ll bring information on what is available.
In this first meeting we will review the available 2018 and 2019 adventures and take a poll on what scouts and adults are interested in going.
I’m sure many of you are asking about timing and cost.
Most adventures range from 5 – 7 days and take place in the Florida Keys, Bahamas, St. Croix or St. Thomas. All adventures are open over the summer months and some over spring break and in the fall.
Cost can range from $1,600 to over $2,500 per person, all in (accommodations, food, travel, gear) accept your own spending money, which should be minimal.
There is good information on the 2019 brochure found here: http://www.bsaseabase.org/filestore/seabase/pdf/2019/2019FSBBrochure.pdf
I will need some help with getting all the steps completed by Jan 23, so please come ready to volunteer if your interested in going (or even if your not).
Here’s some photo’s from our last time down: https://photos.app.goo.gl/bdewiUUiG6x4JmY32
Here’s some links on youtube of other troops adventures. It’s worth a peek to get stoked about this.
