Space is Still Available to go Over the Edge to Support Boy Scouts of America, North Florida Council

Published Wednesday, December 5, 2018

This Friday, Dec. 7, Boys Scouts of America, North Florida Council will be hosting their annual Over the Edge event and there is still time for people to sign up to participate. Over the Edge allows participants, known as edgers, to experience the thrill of rappelling from a downtown building to support Scouting in North Florida.

 

Edgers will be rappelling off the Omni Hotel at 245 Water Street. Rappelling times are available between 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Participants can sign up for the event as an individual, as part of an existing team or can create a new team. To sign up, visit www.overtheedge-NFC.org.

 

Prior to going over the edge, participants will be fitted with safety gear, will receive instructions on use of the equipment and will be given training on proper rappelling procedures. Edgers who wear their favorite sport jersey also have a chance to earn a one-of-a-kind Over the Edge Patch.
