Troop 2319 & Crew 2319 Family Picnic 2021
Troop & Crew 2319,
Our Troop/Crew Family Picnic that was originally scheduled for Saturday. October 9th has been POSTPONED due to a low RSVP response to date. We recognize that Fall is a very busy time for our troop families and with the big expense of both time and money involved in putting on this event, we would like to choose a future date in 2022 that more of our families will be able to attend.
This year our family picnic will take place on Saturday, October 9th from 10am-2pm. We will gather at Allatoona's Riverside A pavilion, a great outdoor location with a huge covered, open air picnic table area, a grilling space big enough to cook a bunch of burgers at once and a large grassy field nearby for plenty of games and fellowship.
We’ll provide the burgers, buns, burger toppings, condiments & paper products. We'll also bring the troop water coolers filled with water and gatorade or lemonade so bring your water bottles.
Please bring your families and both a side and dessert to share and bring any other non-alcoholic beverages that you would like for your family. (Please email Gretchen Shumpert at [email protected] if any of your family members prefer a veggie burger instead of a beef burger.)
We'll set up the troop corn hole and giant Jenga. Feel free to bring your ladderball, fisbee any other outdoor games that you would like as well as any card or board games for additional entertainment. (Please no water guns or water balloons to stay within Scouting USA guidelines for safe scouting/leave no trace.)
We are also inviting AOL scouts and their families from local packs to meet our troop and have an outdoor, more Covid safe troop visit.
There is no additional fee to attend for members of our Troop or Crew and their families thanks to your annual dues, however we are asking AOL scouts and their families to chip in $2 per person to help cover the cost of food and supplies. (If you have a scout in the troop and an AOL scout in a pack there is no additional fee to attend.)
Please help us have an accurate attendance count by RSVPing no later than Tuesday, October 5th so that we can purchase enough burgers, buns, toppings, and paper products to adequately feed everyone!
In the RSVP section please let us know how many people will be attending so that we know how many burgers to buy, and share what side you'll bring if you know so that we have a variety. If you are visiting from an AOL pack, please let us know which pack.
For Troop 2319 Scouts working on Advancemcent, this event counts as a troop outdoor activity
