    All Troop 77 family members are welcome on this trip. However, note the weight minimum below for rafting on the Nantahala River is 60 lb. ALL BOY SCOUTS RAFTING WITH THE TROOP MUST BE SWIMMERS who can verify they have passed the BSA swim test. Swim tests can be arranged for those who have not passed or taken the BSA swim test. Non-swimmers may not raft with the Troop. Non-swimmers and/or those not rafting should travel with family, as Troop leadership will leave Sunday morning to be on the river. There will be no organized Troop activity or leadership for non-swimmers who are not rafting. *Non-swimmers must stay with family. We will have our large group rafting trip on Sunday.

Remember, to get started on a merit badge, you must acquire a "blue card" with the Scoutmaster's signature.

Note: It is a good idea to make periodic photocopies of both sides of the partially completed blue card. These cards are the only record the Scout or the Troop has of the work the Scout has done toward the merit badge. Any lost requirement records will have to be done again!
