2016 Harford District Operation Icicle
Operation Icicle Rescheduled for February 5 - 7,2016
Based on the current weather forecast for heavy snow late Friday
along with receiving emails from leaders concerns about road conditions the Harford District has moved Operation Icicle to the weekend of February 5 - 7, 2016.
The event is still in Camp Spencer.
We will keep your site reservation unless you tell us otherwise.
As part of this date change I have also done the following:
** Troop 564 - switched to the new date and you still have Prospect Lodge.
** Troop 238 - switched to the new date and still have your facilities in Camp Oest.
** All - please feel free to forward to your troop members and others in the district I may have missed. I have tried to cross check my emails along with the trip list, so please help me so we do not miss anyone.
As a note - I kept everyone's email address visible, so that all see the contacts I am trying to reach for each group.
If there are any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
Our main goal is to keep everyone safe and I hope everyone understands the reasons for the date change. Rich Trznadel
