Scouts and parents I wanted to send a note out to let you know what a fantastic shopping experience I had last night at the Peterborough EMS store location. I am confident that their entire staff is like this however if you decided to go down there please be sure to ask for either Stephanie or Jillian. Their attentiveness, knowledge, passion and friendly service is unlike anything you will get at any other outdoor equipment store.
I spent close to 90 minutes with Jillian learning about backpacks and daypacks mostly in the Osprey line but also EMS. We also talked about packing a backpack a but also learning about sleeping bags and lightweight cooking stoves. Don’t forget if you go down there please be sure to tell them you are with Troop 14 and you will get an extra 10% off regular or sale priced items.
I know many of our scouts need equipment like a good daypack, water bottles, hiking shoes, mess kits, sleeping bags, sleeping mats and even a backpack as we will be starting to do some overnight camping in tents in the wilderness.
If you have any questions let me know. We will be having a backpack fitting seminar at EMS after the holidays for all scouts and parents to attend.
Yours in scouting,
Scoutmaster Troop 14
