Northern Tier 2011 is an 8-day canoeing trip from the Charles L. Sommers Wilderness Canoe Base to Quetico National Park. Scouts depart Austin July 18 2011, and fly to Duluth, MN. We will bus to the base then set off on July 19 for 7 days on the many lakes and rivers of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The 2 crews, consisting of 6 scouts and 2 adults each, return to base camp on July 25. We depart from the base on the morning of July 26 to fly home.

Great Suggestion by Renee Collins on 12-27-2010:
All, one idea I wanted to throw in was to pre-target
neighborhoods. Do up flyers and have the boys drop them off a weekend
before or even a day or two before. To get people knowing ahead of time
that they are coming. We could also put some recommendations on the
flyers from a few houses they have already done. Another way, would be to
also pre-email some neighborhoods. If they target neighborhoods with
email lists or where we already know people, we could send out emails and
almost take "pre-orders". I would be happy to help with these
ideas if the boys are interested. Or if you think they might help. You may contact Mrs. Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Garage Sale - Lead:
Winston (note: this option was ruled out as impractical on 12-19-2011)
and approve plans at next meeting, Dec 19.
