UPDATE: 2012 Valley Forge Pilgrimage

This past week, I was called by the organizers of the event.  They were notified that National Park Service has a cap of 5000 participants and the event is highly over-subscribed with new registrations still coming in!

Our troop didn’t make the cut and our resevation is cancelled — our money will be refunded.

While we are disappointed, we understand that as hosts of the event, NPS needs to do what they feel is right and safe from a risk management standpoint.  A scout is cheerful, especially when confronting disapointing news.

We will still take the weekend to camp and have a great troop outing, and next year, we’ll put in our reservation a LOT earlier!
