The Scouts will be spending the day in Galena on Saturday requiring us to eat lunch in town. Your Scout will need spending money for various Food Vendors set up around town. There will also be souvenir’s available for purchase as well.

This weekend will bring us some weather challenges and participants need to be prepared for rain, snow, wind and cold.

Scouts should be prepared to attend with the following gear.

Rain Jacket and (rain pants if you have them), water proof shoes, boots or both.
Cold weather sleeping bag and sleeping pad with extra blanket.
Change of dry cloths like fleece pants and fleece pull over to sleep in only! Pack in a dry storage bag.
Winter jacket, hat and gloves. Dressing in layers is best, in this case, more is better then not having enough!

We will be eating in town on Saturday, Scouts should have some spending money for lunch. Scouts will also be in the shops of Galena, spending money for souvenirs and such are optional.

Do to the expected weather conditions based on today's forecast for the weekend, we will leave the option open to return home Saturday evening rather then having Scouts be damp, cold and uncomfortable. Please be prepared to receive a call Saturday afternoon/evening if the outing ends early due to in climate weather.
