The November trip is scheduled for Saturday, November 9th, to Sunday the 10th. We will meet at the church bright and early on Saturday morning to pack up what’s left of the troop gear. Please aim to be there at 6:30, last car is leaving at 7:10-7-15. If you miss the last car, you will have to find your own transportation to New Bedford, which can be very difficult. We will hopefully all be there at 8:30. We will start working by 8:45, and end at 4:15 leaving the site at 4:40. From there we will travel to Greenbriar Camp/lodge and settle down for the rest of the night.

Sunday we will have breakfast relatively early, give the scouts some time to explore the campsite a little after pack-up, and leave the lodge at 10ish to be back in Cambridge by noon.

Please come Saturday wearing warm clothes, but also wear work clothes, something you don’t care if it gets dirty. Don’t wear your $200 jacket or fleece.
