Troop 10 - Shooting Safety Camp Out
September 27, 28 & 29, 2002
It’s time again for one of Troop 10's favorite campout events. This year’s Shooting Safety Campout will again be held at the beautiful Illig Farm southeast of LaCygne. Mr. Cliff Illig has invited Troop 10 scouts and scouters to use his first rate shooting range for our Shooting Safety event.
At this years campout we will:
· Set up camp sites and cook as Patrols
· Learn safe handling of firearms under very closely adult-supervised conditions
· Learn and practice archery
· Plan and prepare hot meals for Saturday morning, Saturday night, and Sunday morning
WHEN: Friday, September 27 thru Sunday, September 29
MEETING TIME / PLACE: Arrive at Illig’s Farm by 7:00 PM on Friday night to set up camp
WHERE: Illig’s Farm - Drive south on US 69 to State Highway 52; turn left and drive east toward Butler about 3.4 miles; just after the “Leaving Kansas” sign turn right onto gravel road and drive south about 2.1 miles; turn left onto gravel road (if you get to the Marias de Cygne river, you went too far); drive about 0.3 miles east and look for gate on the right (south) side of the road, just past the Illig’s lakes; turn right into gate - you are there!
EQUIPMENT NEEDED: You will need weather appropriate clothing, extra dry clothing to change into at night (socks, sweats, t-shirts, stocking hats, etc.), weather appropriate sleeping bag, ground mat, eating mess kit, and rain gear. Patrols need to work together to make sure that patrol tents and cooking boxes (cleaned and properly stocked) are brought to camp by assigned patrol members. Call your patrol leader, if he doesn’t call you by Thursday, September 26th.
SPECIAL EQUIPMENT: If you have ear muffler sound protectors, please bring them. The troop will provide ear sound protection and safety glasses for those who need them. Regular prescription eyeglasses will provide adequate eye protection.
UNIFORM OF THE DAY: Red activity shirt (or red sweat shirt, if cold weather) during the day on Saturday.
COOKING AND MEALS: Cooking will be by patrols. Hot meals must be prepared on Saturday morning, Saturday night and Sunday morning. For lunch on Saturday, bring a sack lunch and drink.
Dads will cook and eat as the “Old Goat” patrol for all meals. (Including lunch)
COST: Scouts $25.00 plus patrol food costs
COMMITMENT DATE: You must sign up and/or pay for this camp out by the meeting on September 23 or by contacting Paul Bertrand at 345-1611 by September 24. All those who sign up or commit to go will be charged the camp out fee even if they don’t attend. This camp out event involves considerable costs to the troop for materials depending on how many we believe will participate and we need to have these costs paid for.
COORDINATING PATROL: The coordinating patrol will be the Shark Patrol. One of the dads of a Shark Patrol scout will need to drive the troop truck to and from the camp out. The Shark patrol scouts are responsible to meet at the troop locker to unload the troop truck on Sunday afternoon. (The troop truck will be loaded by all Quartermasters and other volunteers earning service hour on Saturday, September 14th, as part of the annual inventory process.)
No firearms of any kind can be brought to camp outs by scouts. Only those firearms requested by Paul Bertrand should be brought by dads.
