- Cameras will be required for the Scout/Beaver Joint Activity.
- Make plans to carpool since parking is limited on site.
- Last, but not least HAVE FUN

I sent a seperate e-mail asking for your intentions to participate.

What I need to know from you now is whether or not you are planning to attend, and your food choice for dinner. The food choices are chips and drink plus 1 x hamburger or 2 x hot dogs. Extra hamburgers are available at $2 additional cost, and extra hot dogs are available at $1 each additional cost.

I need to register our numbers to help with planning by Oct 16. So, can you please reply to this e-mail indicating if your child is planning to attend, and if you are planning to attend with your child. Depending on the number of leaders we have available that day, we may need some parent volunteers to assist.

Please let me know your intentions by Oct 15 so I can pre-register our numbers. I will collect the money and do the paperwork later.
