Caving Trip - More Info

Posted on Aug 27 2019 - 6:46pm

Per the e-blast from 8/26,  The Annual Caving Trip is coming up the weekend  9/20 - to 9/22.  This is a premier event that parents and siblings 11 and older are invited to. The Scouts under the guidance of a trained rescue caver with the Cincinnati Grotto of the American Speleological Society will go down into wild caves and experience endangered wildlife, geologic wonders, archaeological artifacts, and regional history of the Renfro Valley in Southern Kentucky. This is an event that only a few Troops in region do and we are lucky to have the equipment, the leadership, and the resources to do this. Attached is a flyer and gear list.  You can also find this info on the Files in the website, under Files=>Scout Resources=>Caving.

What is Peterloon?

Posted on Aug 27 2019 - 2:07pm

 A scouting event, typically held every two years by Dan Beard Council since the first Peterloon in 1927, this one should be a doozy!

Next Event - Caving Trip

Posted on Aug 26 2019 - 5:39am

Our next trip is our annual trip to the Great Salt Petre Cave in south-eastern Kentucky.  For those that haven't gone, we will be taken on a guided tour of a wild cave for some honest to goodness spelunking!!  Tight spaces, mud and a TON of fun are guaranteed.  More info to be presented at the meetings in the coming weeks (It's not too early to start thinking about menu planning gear requirements either).   Warren High at wchighcin@gmail.com or warren.high@woodplc.com or cell at (513)708-0134  will be organizing the trip.
