The Summit Bechtel Reserve is combining hard work and big adventure to get the SBR ready to open in 2013. How? By asking Scouts and Venturers to put their shoulders into a lot of local service projects and by tackling some of the challenges the gorge has to offer, the SBR will be ready to all Scouts on time.

As a part of the Adventures in Service program, the SBR has invited Crew 5.14 to participate in a climbing promotional film at the New River Gorge.  Below is the tentative agenda for our service project and filming.

Saturday, 5/28/11, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. tentative
