Our first Philmont 2017 planning meeting will be 7-8:30 PM Thursday, September 22 at BPC in the cottage. Attached is the presentation we will cover. Please feel free to bring your own copy for note-taking! And, come with your questions.

We have 24 youth and 6 adults signed up. We can add up to 3 more youth and 3 more adults for a total contingent of 36 participants. The sign-up list is included in the attached presentation.

For the adults, please mark Sat/Sun Oct 22 or 23 to attend a 1-day training session at the Marriott Scout Center and Wed, Oct 26 to attend an evening workshop at Camp T. Brady Saunders. These will be the only Philmont-specific training sessions offered in our area by the Philmont Training Center Staff and will be incredibly valuable to your success as an adult leader on the trek.

There is also an opportunity for participants to join the NCAC Venturing Hike-o-Ree Oct 28-30 for a Leave No Trace backpacking weekend in Front Royal.

Finally, we need to bring all participants deposits up to a total of $550. For the youth who previously made a $200 deposit, the additional payment due now is $350.
