June Recap

A big THANK YOU! to the 8 crew members who helped waterproof our tents on Sunday June 14th.  It took us 4-1/2 hours to set-up 9 tents, apply the agent, let the agent cure and put everything away.  Of course, there was a quick break for lunch!


CONGRATULATIONS to our hikers who completed the 1st Annual Scuppernong Trail Hike on June 20th!  Our group of 8 received a commemorative patch after doing 6-1/4 miles in 83-degree temps, with high humidity and looming rain clouds!


Many of us have started receiving our CREW 999 ACTIVITY UNIFORMS!  Contact Chris Perkins if you are still waiting for yours.  The cost for the shirts is $10 cash or check made payable to “Venture Crew 999”.  Chris will collect the money.




 July Tent Camping

The Perkins family cabin in Wautoma, WI will host the crew July 24-26, 2020 for more camping and outdoor activities!  We’ll pitch our tents, cut wood for our cooking fires and maybe even build some outdoor survival shelters.  Archery, shooting sports and fishing are just some of the possibilities.  Menu includes bacon wrapped in pancakes, soup & sandwiches, beef & veggie “Zip Packs”, cherry cheesecake & brownies and cereal & donuts.  The cabin will be available for bathrooms and personal hygiene only.


Be prepared to sign up by our July 12th crew meeting.  Cost will be $20.  Money and permission slips will be collected the day of the event.  We’ll meet at Nativity Church at 6905 W. Bluemound Rd. at 6:00 PM on July 24th and return by 1:30 PM on July 26th.  Bring your own fishing gear and fishing license if you’re 16 or older.


MEETING NOTE: We are making tentative plans to hold the July crew meeting at Nativity Church in the lower hall where there is room to socially distance.  Face masks will be a necessity in the building.  We may still have a virtual component for those who can’t attend in person.


PARENTAL NOTE:  Wautoma is located in Waushara County.  The closest major intersection to the cabin property is 22nd Avenue and State Highway 21.  Use the Waushara Community Church as a landmark.  The exact address will be e-mailed to the Scouts who are attending the event.
