Memorial Day Canoe Trip [May 2014] This years Canoe trip the Troop spent three days going down the Cacapon river. The Troop braved through the rapids while the perfect weather shined down. Even with the rapids not a single canoe got swamped the whole time. But that is not all we did when not going through rapids some of the guys took the time to swim or go fishing. In conclusion the Canoe trip is always exciting and very fun.
Fishing and Beach Trip [May 2014] This year the troop choose to have a Fishing and Beach Trip which was canceled last year. The Troop took a chartered boat out into the Chesapeake bay where we caught multiple Fish a few Rays and one Starfish. After the fishing we spent the afternoon down at beach doing what we wanted including playing Frisbee and Football. The whole trip we had great weather which the Troop welcomes all the time. In conclusion it was a great trip which I know the troop would do again.
