Sad news from Philmont.  Below is the letter from Philmont Scout Ranch.  The adult leaders are working out details for refunds, training events, Jordon Valley Middle Adventure, etc.   I've been incredibly proud of the skills and leadership that your sons have exhibited through this training, and I hope we can find an adventure this summer.  We'll have a meeting early next week to discuss more
