Typically, we depart at 6-6:15 p.m. on Friday and return at 12:30-1 p.m
on Sunday. Season of the year doesn't make any difference. Our charter
partner has asked us not to return prior to 12:15 p.m. on Sunday so as
not to cause problems with traffic in the church parking lot.
We've found that most families don't want a late Sunday afternoon return
as this interferes with family schedules and rest/recovery time, and
doesn't allow time for uniforms to be washed/dryed in time for Monday
night troop meeting.
