Florida Sea Base 2020 - Refunds Are Here!

Posted on Nov 30 2020 - 1:05pm

Attn: Florida Sea Base 2020 Scouts / Leaders:

It is true - we finally received all refunds from the Florida Sea Base 2020 High Adventure which was cancelled due to the COVID situation.

For ease of record keeping, all refunds are currently being posted to your respective Scout Accounts.

If you wish to verify the amount refunded (100%), contact Mr. Allan Boyce or Mr. Tom Farrell (Troop Treasurers) - Please give them a few days to update your accounts, as they were just notified to process these refunds.

If you wish to receive a refund via check vs. leaving the balance in your Scout Accounts, contact the same above individuals and request this form of refund.

We are truly sorry for the delay in this process and are happy to finally bring this to a close...

We hope to see all of you at the Florida Sea Base in 2022!
