Norther Tier 2014 High Adventure -- Important Information **Please Read**

Eager Scouts interested in High Adventure:

Attached is an informational flyer for the 2014 canoeing expedition to BSA Northern Tier High Adventure Base in Boundary Waters, Northern Minnesota.

Please read and strongly consider this wonderful opportunity. This is an outstanding opportunity for scouts to utilize their outdoor skills, leadership and team-building skills in a beautiful outdoor setting. Those who participate will likely look back years later and recall one of their fondest memories of their entire scouting experience.

Troop Library

Hey everyone,

Although the past librarians were great, we have lots of missing books in the troop library with no idea who checked them out. I have a list posted for the missing books below:

American Heritage #1 and 2 Rowing #2 Cit. in the Community #3 Forestry #1 Personal Management #1 Astronomy #2

If you have any of these books at home, please return them ASAP. Thanks!

REI Winter Sale

Hi everyone, just wanted to pass along that REI is in the midst of their Winter Sale. They have some really good sales especially for those of you needing some high adventure gear for AT hike or the Pictured Rocks adventure this summer. For example, they are showing a Marmot PreCip rain jacket for only $49.99 --- 50% off normal price. This is a just an example and there are many other items worth investigating.
