adult coverage for each group, someone to pull the trailer at the
earlier time, and drivers for there and back, including on Saturday
morning, so parents, please consider signing up to camp the weekend or

The permission form is attached and may be turned in along with payment at
the next two Monday meetings. Turning in no later than the start of the
Monday Nov 8 meeting is very helpful for those planning transportation,
food and activities for the camp out.
