  3. Do not leave goldfish, glitter and feathers on the floor.
  4. EMPTY the trash! If multiple troops are there the last one should empty all trash including bathroom
  5. The bathroom should be cleaned. (If it is simply a troop meeting it is suggested that you limit your group to the use of one bathroom to save cleaning time.

Please note, many troops bring their supplies and leave them behind for others to use. This is great and nice but you cannot be guaranteed that supplies will be there. Leave at your own risk.
