2011 WINTERPLACE SKI TRIP A BIG SUCCESS!
In what has become an annual outing to West Virginia for the troop, several boys developed the skills required to earn the coveted "Snow Sports" merit badge. Considering that many of these boys have never skied until these trips, this is quite an accomplishment (especially for a bunch of "beach boys;-) Thanks to the family members pictured who help provide transportation for this event. Special thanks to Mike Summer, our Snow Sports merit badge counselor, for his expertise in teaching these boys how to ski these beautiful snow-covered slopes. We had several inches of snow our first morning on the slopes and the boys skied from early morning until night skiing ended. Parents and siblings enjoyed the chance to participate as well. Since these boys are better skiers than the photographer and they venture to slopes I don't dare attempt, I don't get pictures of everyone in action, but I do know that they have a lot of FUN!
