Pack and Troop 286 are planning for another adventure.  We are going tubing at Holiday Valley Tubing Park on Sunday, February 27th from 6:30 to 8:30.  The tubing hill will be closed to the public and available for our group only – just like last year.  

If we can get 50 or more people to sign up, it will be $20 per person. If we have fewer than 50 it may be a little bit more but our goal is at least 50.  

Attached is the link to sign up, please fill it out so we can plan accordingly.
