Meridian Camporee June 6-8, 2014 - Wild Wild West
Camporee will be on June 6-8th at Rancho Los Mochos. Saturday dinner contest is Chuckwagon Cooking. Remember that meal choice, preparation method, presentation matching the theme, and of course taste, all count for the dinner contest points.
We need all units to do three things this month, and email Dave Newton with your results:

  1. Pick an adult as your Camporee Coordinator and pass their name and email address along.
  2. Think about what Saturday competition event your unit wants to put on, keeping the theme in mind. We will be doing events on the sports field area at camp, which is near the parking lot (the same place as last year). Send in your choice of event, and a two-three sentence description of it.
  3. We need people to join Camporee Adult Staff, and would like at least one person from every unit to join. There are lots of roles to pick from, or we can make a role to fit your talents and desires.
