This submarine is very popular. From its website it brags "Pampanito hosts approximately 110,000 visitors a year and is one of the most popular historic vessels in the country. In addition to day time visitors, over 15,000 kids a year participate in Pampanito's educational day and overnight programs. Pampanito is a National Historic Landmark."
Update 3/27/07 - I've been informed that a pre-existing rule for Pack 426 of which I was unaware specifies that a scout's parent must accompany the boy on any pack-sanctioned overnight. Thus, we will only accept boy/parent pairs. The cost is still $32 per person, or $64 per family.
DEADLINES: April 30th - Each den leader has forms and fees collected for his den turned in to Joe Martinka.

Disclaimer: Joe Martinka was a nuclear-qualified submarine officer during his service in the U.S. Navy. It is a bit of a home-coming for him, although he has never served on such a tiny submarine. There will be some sea stories, and also some comparisons to the modern nuclear submarine.
