Friday, May 15th, 5:30 p.m. at Wesley Church with departure by 6:00 p.m. Troop departs for Camporee with personal gear.
Weather: We live in a Pacific Northwest Rain Forest! Weather is almost always better than predicted and camp is where you make it and what you make of it. Be Prepared with rain gear and proper clothing.

Dinner Friday: You might eat before you go or bring a sack dinner if desired. The troop will provide a full Cracker Barrel Friday evening which will be served after camp is set and most adults and some Scouts go without an earlier dinner and enjoy the full Troop Cracker Barrel.

Directions: I-5 south from Eugene 20 miles to Exit 174 at Cottage Grove. Left at the end of the exit ramp at the light and proceed east out Row River Road 7.6 miles (past Shwartz Park) to Parker Bay County Park on Dorena Lake. Per GPS its 39 minutes, 30.5 miles.

Registration: Troop registration will close at the end of the troop meeting Wednesday evening. The troop will register Thursday morning and pay all registration fees and provide the required security wrist bands at camporee to all troop participants who signed up in advance. Drop in troop visitors who do not sign up in advance should pay the $12. entrance fee at the gate for a wrist band and seek reimbursement later from the troop treasurer if desired. (Current sign up is 25 Scouts, 2 siblings, and 10 adults.)

Hike: Troops are expected to hike in from the registration gate under the direction of their SPL, packing in their personal gear, to the troop camp site. The heavy troop and patrol equipment, water, and firewood will be trailered in to the troop site.
Uniformity: Troop Uniformity will be judged at the opening flag ceremony on Saturday morning. Troop 100 will be wearing the Boy Scout Uniform Shirt with the Troop Purple Neckerchief and side with Blue Jeans (Scout belts encouraged), so that we all look alike for the uniformity inspection. Make sure your patches including patrol patches are sewed on correctly for this inspection. Patrols are expected to stay in uniformity throughout the day - which means all members of the patrol should be dressed alike throughout the day - it could be the troop uniform as above - or if all patrol members have one - a scout activity shirt such as the troop polo shirt, the troop t-shirt, etc.

Food: The camporee is Patrol Cooking. The troop will provide a full Cracker Barrel for all troop participants in our troop site after set up Friday evening. Patrol Cooking means that the patrols will complete their menu planing this Wednesday evening for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner on Saturday and Breakfast on Sunday. (All of these meals will be prepared at the patrol site within the troop site, except for lunch on Saturday which must be carried and eaten on the trail during the events Saturday as Scouts are not permitted to return to the troop site for lunch. Likely, lunch would be cold unless a backpacking stove is carried by the patrol.) One member of the patrol will act as Patrol Quartermaster for Camporee, securing the necessary food stuffs and dividing the cost among the patrol members, giving them advance notice on how much money to bring at departure for reimbursement. To reduce cost, the patrol may plan and draw extra food from troop stores Wednesday evening, which at this time is limited to hot chocolate, spices, ketchup. mustard. relish, mayo, butter or margarine, pancake mix and syrup, and instant oatmeal. The troop will bring all supplies - paper plates, bowls, cups, napkins, towels, plastic silverware, etc., which will be drawn from central supplies at the camporee troop site. The troop will also provide central hot and cold water. (The adult meals for the weekend will be separate from the patrol cooking. Thanks to John Bass and Sheridan MIller, who are doing the planning.)

Leave No Trace: The Camporee (a group of hundreds) relies on each troop to practice "leave no trace" to maintain camp health and sanitation standards. While the $12. per person fee covers outhouses, the troop will bring extra rolls of the important papers. The Camporee Committee generally does not provide water, a dumpster for disposal of trash bags, a container for disposal of gray water, a container for disposal of cooking grease, or a container for disposal of burned firewood or ashes - hot or cold. Our troop will carry 70 gallons of water, but participants are also encouraged to bring their own water bottles. At Camporee we will use black bags for trash and white bags for recycled waste. Due to limited cans at the church, participants may be asked to take come of this to their home cans.

Awards: At Camporee there will be the OA Call Out; the Best Troop Award, the Senior Patrol of the Year Award, and First, Second, and Third Place for the Scout Skill Patrols and the Challenege Patrols. However, Troop 100 will also have its own Troop Point System based on the Scout Law so that every Troop 100 patrol will receive a prize for their participation at Camporee. Details to be distributed at the Troop Meeting Wednesday evening.
