Finalizing Campout Planning at Meeting Tonight, 4/13
Our Trail to First Class campout and Ne-i-yahw Order of the Arrow Tap Out is this coming weekend! I hope that you are all excited for this event, our first time camping in several months.
We will be finalizing logistics and details for our campout at our troop meeting tonight, April 13 at Trinity Lutheran Church at 7pm, but I think we can depend upon grocery shopping on Wednesday evening and departing for Holter Lake on Friday about 5pm. Tonight will also be a bag check for any boy attending that has not yet achieved First Class rank.
Please also remember that we make our shopping and transportation decisions based upon your sign-ups. If you commit to attend the campout by tonight, you will be charged for the cost of attending. The approximate cost of this campout is $30 per person ($5 registration, 122 miles @ 10 cents and 4 meals @ $3).
All boys attending must also turn in a permission slip. You can print out a pre-filled permission slip for this event at scoutbook.com – just go to the calendar RSVP page for this event and click on the permission slip. I will have blank copies with me tonight.
If we do not have a copy on file, all participants (adult and youth) must also complete a medical form. A blank copy of the form is attached. I will also have blank copies with me tonight.
Looking forward, we will not meet on April 20, but will be holding our Spring Court of Honor on April 27. Please also mark your calendar for our District Spring Camporee on the weekend of May 15.
