Each Troop will be required to provide leaders to run an event. All events and MOST OF THE SUPPLIES will be provided the day of the event. Scouts will need their Boy Scout Essentials listed in their Scout Handbook at some if not all of the Events. Scout Motto “Be Prepared”, so having a few extras wouldn’t hurt.

If your troop is camping you will need to bring your own water and firewood.
All fires need to be in above ground metal fire pits or something of that type. FOR UNITS THAT WISH TO CAMP PLEASE CONTACT RANDY COLLINS IN ADVANCE. (336-712-5126 OR firstname.lastname@example.org).
NOTE TO ALL LEADERS: You may wish to have some way to stay warm at your event. Please make sure you follow the rules below set for fires at your event station.
Lunch on Saturday will be on the trail so each scout should bring a bagged lunch to eat. Also remember to bring a water bottle and water. Please ensure that each patrol brings a trash bag to carry out their trash.
Remember your sleds cannot have metal runners. Sleds with them will not be allowed to participate. One Scout must ride the sled at all times going to each event. Each patrol can have up to 8 boys. Each patrol should have a Scout Handbook and a First Aid Kit with them on the trail. Also don’t forget to have a backpack or something to secure everything to your sled. You don’t want things FALLING OFF and getting lost.
Don’t forget this is the first Scouting event for the District Flag competition.
