Fri 8/30 - Mon 9/2 Eastern High Sierra Backpack Trip (Porter W & Doug)
This backpack trip will take us to the Eastern Sierra above the town of Lone Pine at elevations in the range of 10,000 to 12,000 feet in the Cottonwood Lakes area. It will be approximately 20 miles over 3 days through the Golden Trout Wilderness, John Muir Wilderness, and Sequoia National Park. The trailhead is at Horseshoe Meadows at 10,000 feet, which gives us great access to the High Sierra without extensive climbing from lower elevation. Once on the trail, the scenery will be stunning: pristine alpine lakes and streams, high elevation meadows, large basins gouged out by glaciers, and surrounding peaks rising to over 13,000 feet.

Kickoff Meeting for Troop 407 2019-2020 Scouting Year (JKM)
Wear your full Class A uniform.  Let's start this year looking sharp!
This will be an important information sharing time for everyone planning to be involved in Troop 407 during this coming year.
All Scouts must bring: 
  • At least one parent, preferably both.
  • $110 annual dues: make checks to "Troop 407, BSA" or pay through the Online Store.
  • Updated Scout Profile information forms which were sent to you in the mail.  Please provide us with all of the requested information.  Many forms that we must file with the Council throughout the year require this information and it is much easier to collect it all now.  Legible entries in a brightly colored pen will greatly ease data entry.
  • If you did not attend summer camp with us, or used last year's medical form to do so, a new complete Annual Health and Medical Record.
Those scouts (First Class and above) interested in running for SPL or ASPL, come prepared to speak about your qualifications and ideas.
