An idea that was floated at last weekend's campout was to organize a "parent-son" event to use this reservation. The Troop will be having a campout the following weekend at Camp Oakarro. The Camp Oakarro event is a district-wide Camporee which will be great fun and an event that the Stealth, Turtles, Bigfoot (and their SPL's) should definitely try and attend.
Kettle Moraine, Southern Unit, is prime mountain-biking landscape & the troop camped at this area as recently as 2 years ago. The details on the reservation are as follows:
Kettle Moraine State Forest
Southern Unit, Wisconsin
Pinewoods Group, "D" campsite. (the big area across from where we camped last time - near where we played football).
Reservation # 2-28919879 (Michael Snell)
I will not be able to attend this event. There will be no troop-wide coordination done on this event, thus it is a chance for a parent and son to mountain bike together. To be frank, I do not want to put pressure on ASM's or SPL's to have events back-to-back weekends. The Camporee is the October event. That said, if a Patrol wants to use this reservation, fill out the Troop paperwork, organize the event, etc. - go at it, just let me know. I am trying to make it simple by having a "Parent-Son" event where all organizing is at the parent's discretion. I hope you understand.
