On April 25th, we will be meeting at the Harper College Pool at 7:00 p.m.
The purpose of this special meeting will be to conduct a swim test for ALL SCOUTS.
This swim test is REQUIRED in order for any Scout to attend our May whitewater rafting outing on May 11-13.
We will also be using this swim test to pre-qualify Scouts for summer camp at Camp Tesomas, giving us an extra half day to enjoy the camp rather than waiting around for the swim test there.
Please make sure you plan to join us at the Harper College Pool on Wednesday April 25th at 7:00 p.m. so you don’t miss out on the great whitewater rafting trip.
If you’re not going to be able to make it to the swim test but still want to join us on May 11-13, let me know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so we can look into the possibility of alternative arrangements (no guarantees that we’ll be able to accommodate you, but we’ll do our best).
Thank you! Any questions, please email or give Mr. Waldoch a call.
