We are headed to the lake for our campout this weekend! Our destination will be Mr. Hickman’s lake house in Gun Barrel City on Cedar Creek Lake (in East Texas). He has a great grassy area between his house and the lake where we’ll pitch tents and camp like we normally do. In addition to your typical camping gear (tents, sleeping bags, change of clothes, flashlight, etc.) you will want to be sure you DO NOT FORGET the following items:
$10 cash (per Scout) – to be collected at arrival on Friday (by Mr. Acker) for gas for the watercraft.
Cash for your Grubmaster. If you do not know how much, please contact him and ask him how much to bring. If you do not know who your GM is, contact your Patrol Leader or Senior Patrol Leader.
Swimsuit, Towel, Sunscreen, & Bug Spray – we’ll be at the lake; you’ll want to have a swimsuit and of course, be dry after. There will be sunshine and mosquito’s!
Water bottle – we will drink lots of water, as it gets HOT and we DO NOT want anyone getting dehydrated!
Water shoes (optional) – for those who might want to swim in the lake or wear while out on the boats.
Hat – (recommended), especially one with a brim and chin strap while out on the water, but not one that you might loose if it blows off in the wind.
Sunglasses (recommended), the cheap kind with a strap to keep them around your neck, unless you are in the water…
Fishing gear (optional) – there will be an opportunity to fish from the shore. You will need to bring all of your own supplies for this.
If you have your own life jacket and want to bring it, you may, (write your name in it), but there will be plenty available where we are going.
We’ll have alot of fun and see you at Mr. Horak’s office on Friday at 6:30.
We’ll return by 12:00 on Sunday and will send a “Remind Text” when we are on the way home!
Please contact your Patrol Leader, Senior Patrol Leader, or Mr. Acker, with questions.
See you Friday!
