Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain,
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
and a paddle in our hand.
We'll leave no trace,
across this land.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
in the cold clean air.
On the trail of life,
we'll be prepared.
Where we gonna go?
To the top of the mountain, 
or the river down below?
With a pack on our back,
helping everyone we know.
We're Dan Beard's best,
We're 9-4-0!!!!

Hello Troop 940!

It's time to get prepared for our Troop's primary fundraiser.  Last year we raised $14,000 with the program providing great community spirit and service. The money goes to the boys to help defer their scouting expenses.  This year looks to be bigger and better but we need everyone's help.  If you're new to the troop and haven't been involved yet now's the time.  We've got spots for everyone to participate on the 10 routes covering our community.  We're losing 15 boys from last year due to age (turning 18 and leaving scouts) and attrition so I need everyone to get involved and help.  
Don't worry if you aren't around for all 6 posting days.  3 are the traditional summer holidays (Memorial, Independence, and Labor Day) and 3 are the less traveled holidays (Flag, Veterans, and Patriots).  We like to assign 4-5 families to each route so you can share the responsibilities.  If you don't like to get up early and post the flags, we can use you to retire the flags in the evening.  It's a wonderful experience for the family, only takes about an hour and you will get tremendous pride and patriotic spirit from participating!

I have opened the signup for the April outing - CAVING.  The outing will
be on April 15, 16, and 17.  We are starting signup early due to the
fact that we will not meet during Easter and spring break weeks, so
there will be very few opportunities to provide reminders.

Signup for this event closes on APRIL 6.  It is most important that
folks sign up by this date so that we can work with the various
conservancy groups that provide expertise, volunteers, and facilities
for this outing.  

Caving is a favorite outing for many troop members.  The experience we provide in wild caves is generally not available to the general public.
You will see natural beauty that most people can't imagine.  You will
also discover the miracle of CAVE MUD.

A waiver is required for each caving participant, and can be found
attached to this email, on the event signup on the troop website, and at
upcoming meetings.

Sign up today!
