Here is the latest from District Camporee Chair Stu Bowes on preparations for the Zombie Apocalypse Camporee:
Dear North Star Scouters,
Keep our fingers crossed, but it looks like the weather is cooperating for us this weekend.
We have a lot planned and a few surprises that should be fun. Con Sullivan, our multi-talented DE, will be conducting a group evacuation activity at 4:00pm on Saturday. This will help the Scouts with a difficult to coordinate aspect of the E Prep merit badge.
I am still looking for a few troops to report back to me on head counts and their plans for patrol competitions. We only have 6 activities on the books which includes my quiz and that’s a little on the light side. [Roster form is available here to download.]
The south gate will be open until 11:00 PM on Friday, from 8:00 to 11:00 on Saturday and 8:00 til noon on Sunday.
The west (main) gate can be triggered internally (via sensors) if needed, but discouraged.
