The annual Troop Swim will be held Sunday, February 12 at the Mansfield Community Center, 10 S. Eagleville Road, Storrs (just down the road from UCONN). We have the pool from 11-12:30 and the party room for pizza/refreshements from 12:30-1:30. Come work on advancement and/or merit badge requirements, or just enjoy a winter swim. Sign up on the left.
Congratulations once again to everyone involved in a record-breaking fundraiser season! Because every scout reached or exceeded their sales goal, all are invited to come celebrate with pizza at Village Green on Monday, 1/23. Drop off at 6pm, pickup at 7:15pm.
Sign up on the left.
Troop 39’s annual Snow Sports trip is January 27 – 29, 2017. As in past years, we will be going to Otis Ridge Ski Area in Otis, MA, and staying in their cabin. We leave Friday night at 7:00 PM, and return to Marlborough on Sunday around 11:00 AM.
Prices for the trip include 2 nights in the cabin, Saturday Breakfast, Saturday Dinner, Sunday Breakfast, and snacks on Friday & Saturday. There are 3 options for the trip:
1) skiing or snowboarding at Otis Ridge, $59 includes Saturday daytime lift ticket
2) tubing at Ski Butternut, $70 for the weekend
3) skiing or snowboarding at Ski Butternut (experienced skiers/boarders only), $90 includes Saturday daytime lift ticket
For skiing/snow boarding, equipment rentals are $20 at Otis Ridge, & $30 at Ski Butternut. If you want a lesson or to take the Snow Sports merit badge (Otis Ridge only), the cost is $20. Night skiing is available on Saturday at Otis Ridge only. The lift ticket $12, which we do not collect in advance, and you can decide whether or not you want to go on Saturday evening.
All participants are responsible for their own lunch on Saturday. There is a snack bar at both ski areas, and for the tubers, we usually go for pizza afterwards. All skiers and snow boarders must wear a helmet on the mountain at all times. Helmet rentals are $8 at Otis Ridge, and $10 at Ski Butternut. If you don’t bring a helmet, we will rent one for you at your cost. Please sign up on the troop website ASAP, and you can either pay for the trip out of your ISA, or by check payable to Troop 39. On January 24th, if there are any open spaces, we will open the trip up to siblings at the same cost as scouts/leaders. Talk to Mr. Garmise, Mr. Nastri or Daniel Granatek if you have any questions.
Submit your design for a chance to have it made into the patch that will be given to all the troop and alumni as we celebrate Troop 39's 75th Anniversary on May 21!!! See the attached flyer for all the details. Deadline is January 24 so get drawing!
