Scouts are reminded to be in full class A uniform since this is a district event!  Its going to be cold so make sure that you have the proper clothing.  Please also remember to bring your mess kit and water bottle.

There will be a very important FINAL Sea Base Meeting for all Scouts and their Parents who are attending the Florida Sea Base Trip in February 2020 on Tuesday January 28th.

Please let me know if you are attending the meeting. Hope to see you all on the 28th!


Seabase Packing List

I attached copies of the Seabase Packing Lists for both the Coral Reef (CR) and the Keys Adventure (BEC) trips. The Coral Reef sailing packing list is very specific so make sure to pack what is required and don’t overpack since space on the sailboat is limited. One item of note that is mentioned in the Coral Reef Packing List that you might overlook is a cup for drinking coffee, tea, etc. They do not provide us with one so bring one from home.
