The trip is laid on for 8 scouts and 2 adults at a cost of $1200
with a road trip (yet to be decided)
departure the evening of
Friday April 1 (or flight on Sunday April 3rd)
at 5:30PM (eat

right away and return to base Saturday April 9th in the AM to
catch a flight back to Miami (or Atlanta)
with overnight in a
Hotel and return by 6:00 PM Sunday April 10th, 2011. Plan for
on the road entertainment (books are always good to read or small games/cards).
Spending money should be included for any trading post items, cost in the amusement
parks (tickets and all meal money already included), any spending planned for Bahamas
and road stops. Fishing gear will be provided by the boat crew.
This is an out of country trip so a PASSPORT
is required. Sea Base emergency contact
for passing messages is 305-664-4173 days or 305-664-7766 nights.
Also plan for sea sickness. The most commonly prescribed group of drugs is the
antihistamine family, and includes medications such as Dramamine and bonine. Sea
sickness patches also work well. Let’s not spoil anybody’s trip because you were not
prepared. More details on our “coral reef sailing” adventure at (www.bsaseabase.org).
Payment schedule: $100 deposit now, $150 more by Oct 1st`, $400 more by Dec 1st,
$300 more by Feb 1st and final $250 by Mar 1st. These dates allow you to participate in
the Troop fund raisers (Sep-pop corn, Oct-flower sale? and Jan-tree collection) to build
up your high adventure accounts for transfer as desired.
It will be a pack light trip and as always a full uniform (scout shirt, shorts & socks) and
troop red “t” shirt will be required to be worn by all scouts --- no arguments and no
deviations here --- it’s the standard for this Troop. A “T” shirt size will be needed.
A wide brim hat is not part of the uniform but you should have one for the sailing portion
of the trip. Don’t forget your lightweight sleeping bag and pad, rain gear and any personal
snorkel/fins you may want to bring (sea base will issue sets to those who need them on
check in). One light pack (no frames) is required to be small/crushable, like a pillow case
size. Double check your list of items to pack at least twice (see attached). Place your
