Please email Jim Raines firstname.lastname@example.org with your troop number and the name of your competition event and hewill combine them into one email and share.
Troop 269 – Orienteering (event name to come)
Launch Rockets during their free time after 4;00pm on Saturday. The rockets should use the B6-2 engine.
I am not a rocketeer and I have contacted several “Rocket Clubs” however I have not gotten any commitment from them to assist us on the launching. With that being said, if any troops want to launch rockets they should assign someone to be in charge for their troop and make sure that they have at least one launch pad.
The Prairie Grass Observatory st Camp Cullom will be open the Saturday night of our Camporee. If it is a clear night we will assign shifts per troop and share that information at the camporee.
We have troops that have volunteered to help with the flag raising and lowering ceremony. We still need a troop to do the “scouts own” service Sunday Morning. If any troop has a scout in band that plays the trumpet / bugle, it would be nice if they did reveille and taps.
