Troop 846 (Button Gwinnett District - Duluth) is looking for 3 Boys Scouts and 1 adult who would be interested in joining them at BSA's Florida Sea Base, located in the Florida Keys.  The troop  was awarded the opportunity to send two 6-scout crews to BSA’s Florida Sea Base, and our adventure is the Coral Reef Sailing Adventure, which is a 7 day/6 night experience.  Our troop is filling 9 of the 12 available scout slots and have 3 leaders committed to the trip (all adult training for both crews completed; additional adult would only be required to have YPT).  Unfortunately, the other troop which was planning to join us recently pulled out of the trip, leaving our second boat missing 3 scouts and 1 adult.
