    With the current economic recession expected to last through 2009, by mid-summer you will require relief from the economic gloom. This is where your Sommers Alumni Association provides the relief you need: The 2009 SAA/PSA Philmont Trek. What better antidote to recession blues!

    Your SAA Trek is scheduled from July 26 – August 1. SAA Trekkers are encouraged to arrive at Philmont or other high altitude location by Saturday, July 25, to adjust to the altitude. The Trek will be preceded by the Philmont Staff Association Annual Reunion and Meeting July 24-26, which you are welcome to attend.

    Trekkers will gather at the Philmont Welcome Center on the morning of Sunday, July 26, hit the trail on Monday, and come off the trail Saturday, August 1. You will earn the Philmont Arrowhead Patch.

    You and your Trek-eligible family members will be required to present a completed Philmont Medical Form prior to hitting the trail. (This is a little different from the Northern Tier form.) Your Trek-eligible family members must be 14 years of age by January 1, 2009. You must be an SAA member and all participants must be registered with the BSA.

    The cost of the Trek is $375. There is no additional cost for the Reunion.

    For further information, contact Lee Huckstep at or Butch Diesslin at

    Start your planning now. Get the boss to approve the time off. When late July comes around, put on your Microsoft Outlook “Out of Office Assistant” with the following message: I'm Trekking with the SAA at Philmont Scout Ranch where you can’t bother me!

    We thought you would like to know the world's largest paddling expo "Canoecopia" is coming up.  This year it will occur March 13-15th at the Alliant Energy Center, Madison, Wisconsin.  

    It's soon approaching and many of your fellow alumni and friends will be there.  The Charles L. Sommers Alumni Association's very own "Charlie Guide" Chuck Rose will be presenting this year! Find out more about his presentation at

    Be sure to stop by the Northern Tier National High Adventure booth to say "Hol-Ry!".  Let Scout leaders know of this great opportunity to learn about the program.

    Admission tickets are for sale at the door ($10/day or $15 for a weekend pass). 17 and under are free.  Web site:

    Want to find out who is planning on attending and more about a possible dinner gathering on Saturday night?  Register with us and we will send out a roster the Thursday before the event.  Let us know you are coming at
