We will be holding swim nights at Babson College pool (in the Webster Center) again this year. Due to the increased popularity of the program we are requiring advance notice this year. All Scouts will need to register for the sessions. Scouts will be taken on a first come basis. You are registered for the session you requested unless you get a phone call or email. All sessions are Wednesday evenings. Arrive by 6:45 so that you can be in the water by 7:00. Expect to be done by 9:00.
John just got an email from the Scoutmaster of the Troop in Wayland. They are going to the BSA Seabase in Marsh Harbor, Bahamas over April vacation this year. They have five spaces open and have invited our Troop to join them if anyone is interested. You need to be 14 or in 9'th grade or older to go. We do not know the cost yet, but probably it is in the $1500–$2000 range. If you are interested, let John now asap. They need to send the money next week to the Seabase.
The Knox Trail Council Annual Dinner will be Thursday, January 26 from 6:00 to 9:00, at the Sheraton Hotel on Route 9 in Framingham. See the KTC web site for details.
Our annual tree sale will take place Friday through Sunday, December 9 through 11, at 888 Worcester Street (next to St. James on Route 9). The hours are 4–8 on Friday, 8–8 on Saturday, and 9:30–5 on Sunday.
Scouts: there is more information on the tree sale page.
If you are interested in going to the Jamboree, I urge you to talk to your parents and get registered very soon. The estimated cost will be between $1500 to $1700, which covers all travel, equipment, food and Jamboree fees. To register, go to http://www.bsajamboree.org with your parents. You then print the application and bring it to John for his signature. Bring the $150 check made payable to Knox Trail Council because John will take the application to work and save you mailing it.
