Preparation, Hints, Tips, & Tricks:

The pack is providing breakfast on both days, and dinner on Saturday. Each den is responsible for 
their food for Friday evening and Saturday lunch.  Dens will also provide cobbler fixins. The 
menu is posted at the end of this message.

Plan for the weather.
  It will likely be very cool in the evenings & mornings.  Wear long sleeved clothes and bring your Fall sleeping bags.  Bring a canteen (or other water bottle.)  Even though the weather is cooler, we will still dehydrate.  Drink lots and lots and lots of water.

If you have a Texas State Park Pass, please bring and use it to gain free access for ALL ADULTS in the car for FREE!  This will help save the pack $$$.   Helpful hint, stop before entering the park and stuff the car with the pass with adults!

  Only two cars will be allowed per campsite.  Extra cars will be charged $6/night fee.  This is a first-come, first-served event. When we have 26 cars, the rest need to pay.

Adults entering the park:  If someone from the committee is not in the park office when you arrive, please pay the $5/adults to enter the park.  Get a receipt.  Bring the receipt to the committee to be reimbursed for your entrance fee.

Campfire marshmallows:  If you want to roast marshmallows, bring a roasting stick.  The pack is providing the marshmallows.

Duty Roster:  A duty roster will be created and posted at the campsite.

Wood: Feel free to bring a small amount of wood to help with the campfires.

Cancellation Policy:  If you are unable to attend for some reason, you can either transfer your fee to your replacement (1 for 1) or consider your fee a donation to Pack 409.  We regret that we will be unable to process refunds.
