Golden Eagle Fishing

Featured

Jump aboard the Golden Eagle with Captain Rich Falcone and sail the Atlantic Ocean in search of the BIG one!

That’s right, in recognition of any Scout selling $1,500 worth of popcorn this year, eligible Scouts and a parent will be invited to ride along with Capt. Falcone and go fishing in the Atlantic Ocean during a four hour trip.

Fishing gear and tackle will be provided.

Because of the temperatures immediately after our popcorn sale, we will be taking the trip sometime in April, May or June of 2015, when things get warmer. A date will be determined as we get closer to that time period and we will take weather conditions into account.

This course is for the classroom part of the initial training curriculum. More details on this one day course are available in the Flyer.

Please note: This is the only time this Fall season that a council-wide BSLST course is being offered. Please do not miss out on your opportunity to take this course and take one step closer to becoming a trained leader.
