Troop 444G Brazos River Canoeing Campout - Changed to One Night Only

Posted on May 13 2021 - 8:48am

There is a change to the original two-night schedule for the trip. The good news is Saturday should be a great day for canoeing!  The bad news is some pretty big thunderstorms are rolling in Saturday night and all day Sunday.  So we will return to the Scout Hut on SATURDAY evening.  I am estimating we will be back by 7pm, but will update as we go.
