Dear Scouts and Parents
 
Because of latest weather condition, we are shifting the day hike onto the following Sunday 2/17/2019.  We will have a regular meeting on Feb 10 at Plaza Vista.  Since the next big event is a Camping trip at Caspers Wilderness Park on 3/9/2019, there isn't much time for planning for this event (in fact this Sunday is the only meeting day that we have to plan for this event). 
 
Here are a few items that need to be executed on Sunday 2/10/2019:
1. Please bring all patrol and troop equipment to Plaza Vista for Camp inspection. 
2. PLC starts planning the next camp using this planning package Camp Planning - Caspers Wilderness Park
3. Meal planning for camp
4. Permission for Caspers Camp is already available on line.  Deadline to submit is 2/23/19.  I suggest that we should do it as soon as possible to help our PLC leaders to plan for this event.
5. Permission for Weir Canyon also need to be redo because of the new date.  
 
The details of the TMP will come out later today.  So keep checking the website and email for updates. PLs, please inform your patrol of the change and continue to work with your patrol for preparations.
 
Yours in Scouting,
 
Tay Son leaders

 

 
Dear Tay Son Scouts and Parents,
 
We have a day hike planned on February 10, 2019. The links below contain information to prepare for this event. Please let us know if you have any further questions. So far, only 25 out of 36 scouts have signed up for this. We are monitoring the weather forecast so if there is any change, you will be notified by next Saturday.

Day Hike - Weir Canyon Trail
