Scouts did a shake down of their camping gear and bikes for the Lawless campout. Bring your merit badge books to the next meeting for inventory. Contact Orin Lorenz for your Scout account balance. These accounts have lots of money to use for dues, campouts and Scout gear. You need to get prior approval for gear, then submit receipts for getting the money back. If you have pictures from past High Adventure activities, please send them to John Norland or Silas Lorenz.

Lawless Park: Astronomy & Biking Campout
7 miles beginner trail biking, 10 miles purpose built Intermediate Mountain bike trails (Helmets required)
2 nights of Astronomy club @ an international dark sky park!
We plan to also spend time reclaiming some campsites from the forest, cook at camp, hike, and play games.
Many merit badge and rank advancement opportunities - bring your books and partial merit badges!
Excellent camp out for parents to join! Get a feel for Scout camping and how you can help!
Make sure you pack layers of clothes that can get dirty and are appropriate for the forecast and mess kits for the campout. Look at your Scout book for a list of items to pack. Sleeping pads are nice. Tents can be borrowed from the Troop. Anyone 17+ wanting to fish or help Scouts fish needs a fishing license. Bring your own fishing pole and gear. Bring your bike and helmet for all people riding bikes. If you are coming late or leaving early or leaving for another activity and returning, please check in with Mr. Lorenz or another leader at the campout. If you are arriving early, make sure you use the map to find where to go. It can be confusing.
