High Adventure Training

Well done to our scouts off to Isle Royale.  They knocked 10 miles in under 4 hours while carrying at least 30 pounds a piece at Bald Mountain North Trails.  The trail was muddy and hilly.  We climbed over 100 flights during the hike.  It was great effort all around and great learning opportunity of getting their packs squared away.

I know you jealous and want to train this this elite team of scouts.  Come join Bloomer for Stairs Training on Monday, June 17th and Wednesday June 26th.  Meeting at the Stone Shelter.
