1.) We need a final headcount and confirmation on the Scouts and Adults that are actually planning to attend, as we now have a waiting list. Please check your email for a list of who has committed to attend. If your plans have changed and you can no longer attend, please let me know as soon as possible so that I can register Scouts on the waiting list for this event.
2.) All Scouts planning on attending West Point MUST be in attendance at all the remaining Troop meetings, as well as try to attend the training hike and April Campout. It is important that everyone attending come to the meetings as we continue to organize for this event.
3.) Class “A” and Class “B” shirts are mandatory for this event. The final order will be placed on Tuesday, so that they will arrive in time. Please ensure that your Class “B” shirt fits properly, and sign-up for a new one if you have out grown your last shirt. So that everyone knows, we only order Adults sizes (Small, Medium, Large, X-large and 2XL)
4.) Over the next couple of weeks the Scouts will be getting the Troop gear organized and ready for the trip, figuring out how to prepare the Troop for the competitions at West Point, and organizing the Patrols. There will be at least two shakedowns between now and our departure for West Point.
5.) As a reminder the Troop will be leaving for West Point on Friday, May 1st at around 7:00 AM. Parents should make arrangements concerning school, so that the Scouts can leave with the Troop. We are trying to arrive at West Point by noon on Friday, as we need to backpack into the Camporee site, carrying everything we need for the weekend.
6.) Please watch your e-mails and this website for additional information, West Point Medical Form and Waivers, that we will need to have prior to departure.
