The Troop has scheduled this year’s ski trip for Winter Place Ski Resort in West
Virginia for January 27th & 28th. This is a family event and dads, moms, brothers and sisters are also welcome provided they provide their transportation. Similar to last year’s trip, we will meet at GL church at 6:00 PM on Friday and drive to a hotel close to the ski resort. The hotel is a four-hour, all interstate, drive north. We have reserved rooms at the hotel and will house four scouts to a room. Early Saturday morning, we will have a breakfast (included), drive to the resort, check in at 8:00 AM, obtain rentals and then ski until 8:00 PM. After skiing, we will drive the scouts back to the church and should arrive about midnight on Saturday. Prices for outing options, with lunch voucher and lodging, are detailed in the flyer/application form for the event can be found here.
We need to know by Monday Jan. 9th, if your scout, friend, and/or family plans to attend this outing. We also need to know if you will be willing to drive.
The year 2017 will be another great year for Troop 224! But you need to register first to take part in all of the fun.
