Troop 122's 25th Anniversary Picnic at Quail Hill

In celebration of Troop 122's 25th year, we are having a picnic at Quail Hill.

We will be tent camping from 2-4 Jun. On Sat, 3 Jun we will have:

Barbecue picnic

2 hours of pool time

1 hr of BB & Archery time

We encourage families to join us!

BB and Archery Range Help

We need some help for the 25th Anniversary Quail Hill picnic. In order for Troop 122 to use the BB & Archery ranges we need at least 2 adults to take the BB & Archery training course scheduled for Sun. 7 May from 10am-3pm. The Troop will pay for the training.

If you can join us for the picnic and would be willing to take the training so you can be our BB & Archery Rangemaster for the day, please let me know so I get you registered for the course.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Yours in Scouting,

Jesse Ramirez
