We got a very late start on planning the USS Alabama trip this year but, fortunately, they had a cancelation and we were able to get a reservation for March 4th - 5th. We'll spend the night on the Battleship on March 4th then go over to Dauphin Island and camp out Saturday night. However, we have to give them a deposit and # of people paticipating in the next 48 hours. Therefore, I need everyone who is interested to sign up ASAP!! Cost for the trip will be approximately $55 per person for the event and $15 for gas. This is one of our most popular events and the boys always have a great time! The boys will be able to play capture the flag on the ship and sleep where the WWII sailors bunked. On Dauphin Island we'll visit the Estuarium, Ft Gaines, and complete the Oceanography Merit Badge. We will need several drivers for this event because the Church's bus and Mr. TJ's vans cannot travel this far away from Huntsville. For more information about the battleship go to;
and for more information about Dauphin Island go to:
I also need an adult leader to head up this event. Sherri Spivey has already done most of the leg work but this would be a great event for some new parents to get involved with to learn the ropes. We need to have at least 20 people and 5 drivers in order to continue with this event.
Yours In Scouting,
