Battalion 3273 is going CAMPING!

Here's the email that Captain Howard sent on October 19

Saturday, October 23th, to Sunday, October 24th, 2010.

We're going to the Squamish River Forestry Site ( 49°54'55.16"N 123°17'39.49"W), near the bridge.

Rodger and I checked it out Monday and it's better than ever - picnic tables, firepits, and two pit toilets; all quite new. Oh, and no fees.

We leave Saturday morning at 8am - arrive at the church by 7:45. Eat breakfast before you arrive.

We return to the church between 3 and 4pm Sunday afternoon, after buying lunch at the Squamish McDonald's.

Cost: $15 (includes gas) plus money for McDonald's on Saturday.

Bring the usual wet and cold camping gear - If you need the list please contact Captain Howard. Be prepared for rain and cold nights. We'll have tarps, tents and a big fire so we'll be quite comfortable.

And bring your fishing rod (and licence if you're over 15 years old).

We'll be fishing, building fires, eating, and having good fun.

If you haven't already filled out the Battalion Registration Form/Permission Form, you'll need to do this before you go.

Any questions please call Captain Howard


  1. We are going to McD's on Sunday. Sorry.
