Hello All,

I hope this letter finds all of you in good heath and that you all had enjoyable holidays.

I have been asked and have accepted to be the Philmont 08 Contingent Leader. Filling our dear friends shoes will be a very tough job; he set the bar very high. I believe, with your help we can be successful in giving another 112 Trekkers an experience they will never forget.

Our first organizational contingent meeting will be on Thursday, April 19 at 7:30 at the Service Center on Genisi Drive.

The dates for the 08 adventure are as follows:
- NJ to Denver - Thursday, June 26
- Arrive at Philmont - Sunday, June 29
- Denver to NJ - Friday, July 11

There is an advertisement for the 08 Trek on the Monmouth Council Website and we already received a number of deposits.

Between now and then, I am asking you to think about the positions listed below to see how your experience can be best utilized. Some of you may have notes or records from previous treks, please bring them.

In an attempt to satisfy everyone’s challenging calendar, please be prepared to present your top picks for which weeknights work best for our contingent meetings.

Please pass this on to your troop leaders and/or anyone who is interested in Philmont 08. The meeting is open to everyone.
I would appreciate it if by e-mail you can let me know that you are interested in being on the committee and if you think you will be attending the meeting.

Yours in Scouting,
Maurice Zagha
