(*TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN READING THIS PAGE: PLEASE NOTE - These totals are only estimates and are subject to change by the time we are ready to go.  As well as the number of persons who will be going with us. Any REGISTERED Girl Scout in Brownie Troop #1487 and the Group and Cadette Troops AT THE TIME WE TAKE THE TRIP and ALL Adults are welcome to join us but must either help us earn the money to go (through Council Approved Fund Raisers) OR pay their own way. (This will include any girl who is currently in the second grade as of April 2002 AND any parent who is interested in going along to Chaperone)  Reservations MUST be made at the Juliette Low House at least 18 months in advance so the earliest we could go at this point is sometime in 2005!

When plans began in 2001, The 4 Adults included in this sample budget were: Jamie P1, Tina, Peggy & Cindy.  Since we are not going until 2005 now several more adults such as Jamie P2 & Chrys will be added.  ALL adults who participate MUST have Leadership Training and be First Aide Certified if possible. There will be a Training before we go for Trip Traveling and at least TWO Adults, if not all Adults going must take it! NOTE: I prefer that ALL the adults planning to go take it if possible!

"12 Girls" is just a guess on how many will actually be attending, that number could very well be more or less by 2005.  PLEASE keep in mind, we are STILL in the very early planning stages of this event and have a long road ahead of us before plans are complete!  Until everyone involved gets serious and pitches in to help with planning and organizing things, this trip will remain merely a dream!

ALL Numbers are merely estimated guesses and have no true bearing on our REAL budget or any plans at this time. (February 15, 2004)
