MB Mania reminder

We need a roster of who is attending MB Mania 8/16-8/18 as each of you should have registered for the event with Annawon council on your own by now.

Let Mr Boersdamm or Mr Lamoureux know that you've registered, which courses you are taking and if you plan to bring your own or need a troop tent.
You can post a comment to this blog post too to let us know that you are attending.

Reminder that we will be camping at Site #8 Kolli at Camp Norse

Mosquito Netting

Most veteran scouts of Hidden Valley / Camp Bell have Mosquito Netting already.  Be sure to bring with you to Squanto
New to summer camp scouts:  We believe the tents at Squanto do not have any bug netting.  To be prepared, you will need to pack in Mosquito Netting (sample packaging image above).  Can be purchased at sporting goods stores such as Dick's for a few bucks.

If you planning on bring any snacks to Camp Squanto - they MUST be in a sealed, plastic container with a lid, with the scout's name written in permanent marker on the container.  NO EXCEPTIONS!
