Bridging - Response has been a little slow

Posted on May 24 2021 - 8:33am

Hey Troop - Just a reminder that Bridging is only two weeks away.  So far, we only have three scouts attending and five webelos.  I know that due to the schedule this year, we didn't finalize the date until recently.  However, we do need a head count to plan the event.  There has been a Will you attend yes or no" question added.  It would be huge help if everyone could go to the link and RSVP one way or another.  Here's the link:
