Good News: Gravel has been delivered and 1/2 half the road is mostly spread.

"Bad" News: The part that needs to be done still is the HILL!!!

Troop 230 - Troop Site NEWS!!!! The road is going in this FRIDAY!!!!

Posted on Aug 7 2018 - 9:03pm


 The Troop has been working with our Charter Organizations (First Baptist Church of Penfield) on investments to the Troop Camp Site using the profits from the logging of the troop Site that was done several years ago.

 The first main project is happening this week!   A new gravel road is going in on Friday.   This improvement will greatly improve access to the top of the hill and our campsite.  This past weekend several of us were up there to lay out the geotex fabric that will be under the gravel to get ready.  The plan is that on Friday several trucks with many tons of gravel will arrive to spread up our new road.  Following that the Troop will need to fine tune the gravel by hand or with some garden tractors.  After that we have a donation of some tamping equipment which will be used to pack the gravel in place.

 We are very excited to have this very important site improvement underway.   Thanks to Life Scout Ryan Hoyt for his leadership in the exploration and pitching of this improvement to the Church Council.  Well Done!  Thanks to Mr. Pat Michatek for his personal involvement in helping to shepherd this along.

Mr. Michatek will have some more details and can share them with this group…  I’m sure there will be items to help with down at the site on Friday as the stone is delivered.

Keep an eye out!

Mr. Furst, SM
