Scouts-L Mail Archive for June of 1999: Off to Europe!
Off to Europe!
Tue, 29 Jun 1999 16:46:08 -0400
Our group of 12 Boy Scouts and 2 adult leaders from Troop 180, East Lansing,
Michigan, leaves for Europe tomorrow, That means my next message to Scouts-L
will probably be some time in August.
Our itinerary is:
July 1-4 - Perchtoldsdorf (near Vienna), Austria
July 4-7 - Budapest, Hungary
July 8-13 - Camping with the 17th Bratislava in the Tatra Mountains of Slovakia
July 14 - Bratislava, Slovakia
July 15-17 - Berlin, Germany
July 17-22 - Kliplev, Denmark
July 22-29 - Blaa Sommer National Camp of Det Danske Spejderkorps (near Kliplev
with over 20,000 participants)
July 29-30 - Kliplev, Denmark
July 30 - August 2 - Cologne, Germany
August 2-4 - Zwanenburg (near Amsterdam), The Netherlands
Our expenses for air fare, train fare, and Blaa Sommer fee have come in at or
under our estimates, so we are reasonably certain that the total cost of this
trip will be less than $2000 per participant, a very low price for a
once-in-a-lifetime experience like this.
I will not be able to answer inquiries about our 8 day Michigan International
Camporee 2000 until after my return in August.
