Why are you having this event?
This is a fundraising event for Troop 239. Boy Scout Troops are volunteer run and self sustaining financially. Also, the Boy Scout Oath and Law have aspects of fitness and staying healthy. What a great way to show this by hosting and participating in a community event.

What happens if it rains or snows?
This is a rain/snow or shine event. April in Wisconsin is unpredictable weather wise, it might snow, it might rain or it might be 60 degrees and sunny. As Boy Scouts, we’re used to being in the elements and we hope you enjoy it too. Dress for the weather and come out for a fun time.
Will I get a refund if it rains or snows or otherwise isn’t perfect weather?
There are no refunds for this event. As stated above, weather in Wisconsin is unpredictable and we’re ready to ensure Mother Nature and we hope you are too.
