OA Induction campout!

The August OA Induction campout is nearly upon us.  While the campout is not until the end of August, we must register for the campout by August 12th (just a couple of weeks away!).  This campout is a good one and typically one of our best attended.  It is open to both OA members and non-members.  Although the Ordeal and Brotherhood candidates will be busy, there are opportunities to climb, hike, and even shoot because the camp venues will be open for the weekend.  Registration is through the Council and the deadline is firm.  We must have an accurate count, payment, and permission slip for this campout by the August 8 meeting to allow enough time to register through council.  After August 12, we will not be able to add anyone.

So please make your decision and sign up soon.  For those that have already signed up, thank you.  For everyone else, I have a signup sheet that I would be glad to add your name to it.  Current OA members must have their dues ($15) paid for 2016 to participate in this campout.  If you have any questions about OA, this campout, or dues, please see me at the Monday Troop meetings or contact me at palauskyfamily@gmail.com.

If you are interested in knocking out advancement in scouts to OA, please bring the permission slip to a meeting before August 8th.
