Zipline Trip - November 2017


Troop 9 is down to MegaCavern in Louisville on Friday November 3 to go ziplining.   It will be an adventurous trip that will allow the boys to not only go ziplining, but also try out a fun obstacle course in the cave.


The cost of the trip will be $100 per participant.  This includes ziplining, Mega Quest (a huge obstacle course), and two nights in a hotel.  It also includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday. We will stop on Friday night for dinner and scouts will need to pay for that meal.



The trip will be a 4.5 hour drive from Champaign to Louisville including time to stop for dinner.


The troop will be staying in the Radisson Hotel Louisville North in Clarksville, IN.  We will prearrange a set of hotel rooms and occupants for all participants ahead of the trip.  Typically we will appropriately assign four people to one room.  This is short drive to the Louisville MegaCavern.
