    Important MDGT Info. 

    MD PicGood Turn Info:

    Hello All,

    Tomorrow is the annual good turn at JB. ¬†Please plan on parking by 11:30 am, so you have plenty of time to walk to our meeting spot. ¬†From Telegraph turn onto Jefferson Barracks rd (at Walgreens), this turns into Sherman. ¬†I suggest parking across from the Cemetery entrance, this is where we will finish placing flags and exit. ¬†It’s always easier to walk further in the morning. ¬†You will thank me later! ¬† Walk to the National Guard gate on Sherman. After Checking in at the gate continue on Sherman rd and turn right on Johnson. ¬†We will meet at the big tree on the corners of Johnson & Davis roads. ¬†There will be a big white building straight ahead. ¬†This is just a meeting place our line up spot for the silent parade will be further down the road.

    Please call Kenny Edgar if you get lost.  His cell is 314-610-8416.

    This is a full class A ceremony/activity.  No gym shorts!

    Plan on bringing water, and maybe a snack.  Porta potties only.  Pack-in/pack-out your trash.

    Be prepared for anything: heat, rain, thirst.  You are responsible  for bringing your own water.

    Adults must have a photo i.d.

    OA ELECTIONS ALSO TONIGHT!! 

    Troop,

    I almost forgot we have our Order of the Arrow elections tonight.  Since we are going out of council this year for summer camp, we have to have our elections in May.  To be eligible, you have to be First Class and have 15 nights of camping, one of your camps has to have been a summer camp.  You also must be attending summer camp this year.  Everyone can vote.

     

    Thanks,

    Mr. Piel
