Friday, May 26 -
No one registered for this trip by the deadline of April 18, so this trip is cancelled. An alternate trip, a camporee the weekend of May 12-14, has been posted.
Troop 54 will go rafting on the Kennebec River in Maine with CrabApple. We will have a Friday evening departure and Sunday afternoon return to keep Memorial Day itself open (Troop 54 is serving as a color guard that day). This run features Class III-IV rapids, has a minimum age of 10, a length of 12 miles and 3-4 hours on the river. For details on the rafting, see their trip description. We plan to camp at a primitive youth group camping area provided near the CrabApple office.
This trip is open to Boy Scouts and Webelos/AOL Scouts.
The rafting operator has a cerain number of people they can send down the river each day. At the time this was first posted, there were sufficient spots available. The only way for us to "reserve" a spot is to pay for it in full. Given the very long drive, we have set a minimum total participation of 6 people for this event to actually happen. We will make that determination based on paid registrations on April 11. If we have insufficient registrations, we may extend this deadline by one week. Fees paid will be refunded in full if this trip is replaced with another trip.
Once the Troop does make an initial reservation, additional participants can sign up for the trip until May 16, provided that CrabApple still has capacity and provided that we still have spaces in the vehicles going on the trip.
