Important details for this weekend’s trip to Flywheelers.

We currently only have available drivers to permit 20 scouts to attend. So, at the meeting this week, there will be a sign up sheet that is first-come, first-served. Unless we get additional adults to agree to drive, we cannot accommodate any more.

What is Flywheelers? It is a fleamarket/Antiques Roadshow/Tractor show mash-up. There is a lot to see, lots to buy, and lots to learn. Last year, I could have watched the log cutting demonstration all day, as they took tree trunks and cut them into boards using only the technology available in the early-20th century.

Details:

Scouts should meet at the usual SuperTarget lot by 5 pm. Eat dinner before arriving.

Scouts need only bring scouting essentials for a short overnight trip (i.e., sleeping bag, clothes, toiletries, tent, etc). This is a low-key trip. No meal prep needed. Scouts should find a buddy to tent with (and make sure the scouts know which one is bringing the tent).

Cost of trip is $10, which covers gas for the drivers. Scouts need to also bring money for breakfast and lunch Saturday. Anticipate $20 for food, unless your scout eats a lot. Also, scouts should bring as much money as mom/dad want to provide for buying knick-knacks, chotchkies, gifts, snacks, etc. Also, if you intend on buying anything with a blade, you must have a totin chip and a letter from your parent, given to either Mr. Fritz or Mrs. Bickford, allowing you to purchase. Those items will need to be given to the adult chaperones to carry/hold until our return to Naples. Under no circumstances will live animals be allowed to be purchased or brought back by a scout (this includes, but is not limited to, snakes, lizards, chickens, ducks, kittens, puppies, goats, goldfish, turtles, hermit crabs, pigs, parakeets, canaries, cockatiels and toucans).
