Tonight’s troop meeting will be at Jones Island (on the corner of Harvey St. and Alleghany Rd in Grayslake). Scouts are encouraged to bring their swim suit. Watercraft (canoes, sailboats and kayaks) can also be brought. Only Scouts who passed their 2014 MaKaJaWan swim test and are wearing a PFD may use the watercraft. (NOTE: if your route normally takes you through the intersection of Rt 120 and Rt 83, be aware that the RR tracks on Rt 120 are under construction. Route 120 is closed until Aug 14.)
If you don’t want to go in the water, bring a Frisbee, soccer ball, etc and stay on shore. All meetings at Jones Island are informal. Uniform shirts are not required, but a troop t-shirt or other Scouting t-shirt is required.
In case of bad weather that forces a cancellation, there are no alternate plans. St. Gilbert is not available to us. The website will announce the cancellation no later than 6:30 PM.
Sunday, 11 pm
First week Scouts have returned home and the troop has begun Week Two at MaKaJaWan. Week One was fantastic (a full report will be in the August Troop Gazette). Watch for details on Week Two as they become available.
