There will be an equipment check on Sunday, so all equipment need to be at the meeting (including tent, patrol box, stove, and cooler)​.  Please make sure that your patrol has all the necessary items for camp, and if not, please let the leaders know via email.  
Patrol leaders, please be aware that camp meals will need to be completed on Sunday.  You will only be given the 20 minutes to complete the meal plan and distribute the materials list within your respective patrols.  Please plan for 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, and 2 dinners.

Our next two meetings at Plaza Vista will be very important as we prepare for LD camp on Labor Day weekend.  Therefore, it is critical that all scouts arrive at the meeting on time.  Our agenda begins at 9:00 sharp, and there will be consequences for showing up late.  All scouts need to arrive to the meeting with the willingness to participate, so please stay on task throughout the entirety of the meeting.
All scouts need to bring their gay doi to the meeting.  As you can see in our TMP, we do not have a block of time for advancements, so requirements will not be tested unless you email in ahead of time.  
Permission slip for LD camp is due by midnight 8-17-2019.
