Please try to have all forms filled out and checks prepared at check in.
Location: Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship Route 671 Neersville VA (behind fire department)
Fire and Water: Since location became an issue and was acquired on very short notice you should be prepared with your own water and firewood. Please be advised, however, there may be restrictions on campsite fires so make menu plans accordingly. (Leave no trace fires, above ground in pots or lids are a sure bet if you choose to take the extra care.) You will be advised as soon as possible.
Check sheets: These will be distributed at the SM/SPL Meeting on Friday night or during check in on Saturday. If you want to be sure not to lose any points, be sure to check in early and follow the agenda. All scoring for prizes will be on a patrol level.
Equipment: Bring your own rockets to be launched one time with a B type engine. Large rockets may be launched, time permitting, with your own engine after all competition launches have been accomplished. Paper and some supplies for space model drawing will be available. Space station models need to be completed prior to camporee for judging. Use the MB book as a guide. Paper airplane paper, supplies, directions will be available and may be completed on site. We will have persons who are qualified to sign off blue cards, so if you want to get your partials, bring the blue cards with work done outside and be prepared to discuss your MB requirements.
Best overall troop: A new addition to the camporee will be decided by the hosting troop and will include scout spirit, overall participation, and adherence to the Scout Law and Oath. Stay on your toes. Special recognition at the campfire.
Cars/Equipment: Again, the location was determined at the last moment and some details are not conclusive. We will do our best to allow at least one vehicle to deposit troop equipment.
Again, observe the scout motto - be prepared, and try to keep your gear light.
Other Questions: Please contact Cheri Berman 540-338-7254 or email@example.com.
