Reevis Ranch Backpacking

https://hikearizona.com/decoder.php?ZTN=246

This trip will be October 20th – 22nd. This part of the trail is a little longer, but it is an easier hike. The drawback is the road to the trailhead is a freaking nightmare. Just a little over 1 car wide, dirt, with a mountain on one side and a sheer cliff down to a river on the other side. The plan is to leave around 5-5:30 PM friday, get to the trailhead, and hike 1-2 miles down the trail. Saturday morning we will pack up early and descend into the ranch and through the apple orchards. The first part of the trail is dry, but there is water at the end.

This is not an easy hike, we will be covering 9 miles, with almost 3k of elevation changes. Please take time with your patrols to do hikes between now and the end of October so you can be ready for it.

September we will be going over backpacking equipment, trail safety etc. The first meeting in September on the  4th we will be meeting at the REI at Paradise Valley Mall to be fitted for backpacks. Please try and be in the parking lot at REI no later than 6:30.

This is a fantastic backpacking trip, and I highly recommend everyone try and attend. If you need backpacking equipment, please contact us off list and we can work on getting everyone fitted. Please don’t let a lack of equipment deter you from this opportunity.

Thank you!
Scoutmaster Zoe

Committee Meeting on 7-17

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that our next Committee Meeting will be on Monday, July 17th @ 7:00 P.M. We will be discussing upcoming service projects, troop events, fundraising for the winter snowboarding trip, recruitment ideas/events we would like to organize and host, and any other ideas, questions or concerns you may have. Zoe will also be sending in Tyler (S.P.L.- Senior Patrol Leader) to share with us what the boys will be doing for the rest of the summer, and to request any support they may need from us.

I think it would be GREAT for our troop to have at least one parent from each family there!

Thank you in advance for your support,
Joy

P.S. I will bring a dessert!

Upcoming Program Planning Meeting

We will be having our Program Planning meeting this Sunday, for the next 6 months of program planning. If there was a campout or activity you wanted to do between August and January, please let your patrol leaders know at tonight’s meeting. We will make some time for it during the meeting.

Thank you,
Scoutmaster Zoe

Camping this weekend!! **change of venue**

We will be relocating to Ashurst Lake on the forked pine campground. If that is also full we will be doing dispersed primitive camping around marshal lake. There is a motorcycle club rally at Mormon lake that has filled the area.
