From Arthur Anthony - Friday night March 8th, the Troop 132 scouts drove out to a cabin in Western MA, so they could get an early start for skiing on Saturday morning at Berkshire East Ski Area. At 6:30 AM, the boys were up cooking and eating a hearty breakfast and were anxious to get out on the slopes. Once at the mountain (15 minutes away) the scouts had a blast skiing down the many winding classic New England ski runs of the “B-EAST”. The weather consisted of a beautiful sunny day in the 30’s, yet the scouts never had to wait in long lines (all the more for us!). After a full day of fun, it was back to the cabin to cook a big meal and play one of many card games. Later that evening, the scouts discussed reading and orienting topographical maps, then a quick game of flashlight tag outside. The scouts definitely had a much quieter sleep that night. Sunday morning we returned back to Concord with some impressive new ski stories to share.
From Troop: Thank you to the Anthonys for once again opening up their home in the Berkshires to host the Troop! The scouts had a great time.
