It’s 2011 and almost Willow Creek Boy Scout Invitation Time again!

Amazing how quickly the year goes by. Over the next few months I’ll try to add updates from the 22 some-odd events that happened between Willow Creek 2010 and now… But in the meanwhile, Willow Creek 2011 is almost upon us and has moved to a new weekend! This subsequently removes the previous conflict for volunteers that couldn’t decide between helping on Willow Creek, the Race to Robie Creek or the Riggins Jet Boat Races. Mark your calendars now for Saturday, April 9 for Willow Creek 2011. RSVP to myself, K6LOR or Russ, N7SMA. More details to follow…
