If your scout is one of the 13 signed up to attend the Cloudland Canyon camping trip next weekend, they must have their equipment approved (gear shakedown) by this coming Monday or they will not be able to attend. This is a cold weather campout with several miles of day hiking and there is a chance of rain - so it is critical that every camper have the correct gear.

Last Monday's gear shakedown had most scouts missing key items, so here are a few reminders, based on the feedback I heard. (A complete packing list can be found in your handbook)
Cold Weather Clothing :: base layers (non-cotton), coat, gloves, beanie hat
Rain gear :: a good rain jacket or sturdy poncho - no thin disposable ponchos
Tent not hammocks :: Make sure you know how to put it up with the rainfly
Sleeping Bag rated for 20F :: if you need some extra warmth, look into a 'sleeping bag liner'
Sleeping Pad :: Foam or inflatable pad to put between your bag and the tent floor
Water bottles :: Two 1L bottles recommended
Footwear :: Footwear designed for hiking, and extra socks (avoid cotton)
Food :: Everyone is cooking their own meals, backpack style. So bring backpack meals, a personal stove and mess kit you can cook with.

(If you need to borrow equipment please let me know before Monday 1/29.)

Drop off for this campout is 8:00AM Saturday at the Scout Hut. (Please turn in a permission slip before leaving)

Pick up will be between 3:00PM and 4:00PM on Sunday at the Scout Hut
Please bring $10 cash for Sunday fast food stop.
