Please signup for our next T5 campout, for May 4-5!  This will be a mini-high adventure experience, canoeing 5-6 miles down the lower Colorado River, to primitive camp on a wilderness island of Texas public land.  You will learn how to pack overnight gear for a canoe float, practice paddling, earn conservation service hours, swim and fish, enjoy and learn backpacking MRE meals, and have a bonfire.  Be sure to have an up to date swim test in time for the campout, and there will be one more troop sponsored swim test at Deep Eddy this Saturday.  Also, we need a few parent volunteers to signup to help tow canoes and co-honcho some logistics;  if you can help, please email james@realinternational.com
