You lucky to live so close. Some have said the fort is (not) on the base

Some others will be interested in promoting the APO (Alpha Phi Omega?)
fraternity, especially if you have difficulties entering Boulder

oriented group which shares ideals of scouting and has ties with the
National Council, BSA.
