    Weather and Camping 

    I am sure everyone is watching the weather. As of now, we are still going cabin camping. If camping is canceled, it will be from GSLAC closing the camp.

    I am pushing back arrival time to 6:30 so I can shop for food at the last minute.

    However, as of 8:41 on Tuesday, the manual and on-line registration for Klondike (the day event) is not on the website so I can not register our Scouts. Adults will discuss this further on Thursday.
