Tomahawk Reminder

posted Jul 14, 2016, 1:39 PM by Maxwell Vogel

Troop 113,

This is just a reminder that Tomahawk is just around the corner!  We plan to meet at the Scout Building this Saturday, July 16th at 8:00 AM to load the trailer and depart for camp.  I know everyone is looking forward to a great week!  There are just a few things I want to remind everyone about:

·        Health forms – If you haven’t already turned them in, please make sure you have 2 copies with you on Saturday morning

·        Scout Handbooks – Please make sure you have your books with you.  This week is a great opportunity to work on rank advancement

·        Class A Uniform – You must be wearing your Class A uniform when you show up Saturday morning in order to travel with the Troop

·        Class B Uniform – Remember to bring your set of Class B shirts since we will have a designated Color of the Day throughout the week

·        Medication – If you have any medications you will need to take, you must have them in a Ziploc bag with the scout’s name and all dosing instructions included.  We are fortunate enough to have a nurse (Jenny Schoolman) attending camp with us this year.  All medications should be given to her on Saturday morning.  She will keep them all in a locked container and will be in charge of dispensing them throughout the week.

·        Money – We stop for lunch on our way to and from camp.  Each scout will need their own money for both lunches.  There is also a trading post at Tomahawk that you may want to visit.  We will be keeping a bank for the week if you would like to deposit money on Saturday morning for safe keeping throughout the week.  The bank will be open daily for withdrawals.  I recommend depositing small bills for ease of use.

·        Bug nets – I highly recommend you have a bug net that will completely cover your cot to ensure a good night’s sleep!

·        Snacks – Please do not bring snacks with to camp.  This is a violation of the Bear Policy and we are very serious about keeping bears (and other critters) out of our campsite.

·        Electronics – Electronics are not allowed in camp.  Remember that if you choose to bring any electronic devices (other than a camera) to camp, they must remain in a parked vehicle all week.  There is a very good chance that electronics left in a vehicle will get extremely hot and possibly damaged.  I recommend simply leaving them at home, unplugging and enjoying your beautiful week at camp!

 

I look forward to seeing you all Saturday morning!  As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thanks,

Sean

Philmont Crew,

Great job on our final shake down trip! 20 plus miles on Saturday was a great accomplishment.

We are at T minus 19 days to departure.  

Keep up your training to a minimum of three days a week with 30 to 45 lbs in your pack.
Adjust your pack and gear for comfort and efficiency. 

Mandatory meeting for Philmont Crew Tuesday July 26th after Troop COH. Please plan on attending.

Troop 113,


We have a great service opportunity this weekend for any scouts that are able to help out!  We will be assisting with both set-up and take-down for the Dane’s Place Pig Roast at Bethlehem Lutheran Church on Saturday, June 25th.  Set-up will begin at 11:00 AM and run until 1:00 PM.  Take-down will begin at 4:00 PM and should wrap up around 6:00 PM.  Come for one or both if you can!  Bethlehem Lutheran is one of our charter organizations and this is a great chance for us to say “Thank You”.  

Please plan to wear a Troop 113 Class B and athletic shorts or sweat pants are okay!  Please let me know if you intend to help out and which shift(s) you’re able to help staff.

Thank you in advance for your service!
