Missing Tents!!!


Scouts – I need ALL of you to search around your house, parents vehicles, basement, garage… wherever, looking for our troop tents that may be in your possession STILL!  The tents are in a Black Bag about 30 inches long – 9 inches in diameter with green straps.  If you find them – let me know ASAP!  Please get these back to the troop – this coming Tuesday –CLEAN.

In the future, we are going to have a better system in tracking our equipment; so let’s work together to have them returned on a timely manner. 

Sincerely,

Use the address of:  4927 Snowy Creek Drive to get there on GPS.
