This is it! Troop 26 leaves for Philmont tomorrow. We are meeting at the Santa Barbara Train station @ 12 noon on Saturday, July 28th. Months and months of preparation (not to mention loads and loads of money- in unrelated news, REI is doing very well…) and planning are coming to fruition. However, as you finally get away from your parents for the next two weeks, we ask one final thing…
When your parents drop you off at the train tomorrow, please have them park and come check in with either Mr. Shaw and/or Mr. Stewart. There is one final Philmont form that must be signed by a “responsible” adult. Not that you were necessarily planning on a long, tear-filled goodbye, but I know the temptation to just have your parents slow down a bit, open a door and “Tuck and roll” your way to freedom.
