  • Kayaks
    TO:  Friends and Families of Troop 258

    The weekend of September 13-15 we are taking the scouts kayaking and crabbing in the salt marshes along Barnegat Bay as we have several times in the past.  This trip is a favorite of the boys and we have large number of boys signed up for the trip again this year.

    Unfortunately, the outfit we have rented our kayaks from in the past is no longer in business and we will need to arrange for kayaks ourselves.

    I would like to ask if anyone has a kayak they could loan the troop for that weekend,or knows of someone who does, it would be very much appreciated.  (sit in, sit on, 1 person, 2 person, whatever you may have)

    Please let me know and I will work with you to arrange to pick it up.

    Thank you in advance
