Spring Conclave 2013 Information

A big thank you to everyone who signed up online for Spring Conclave. If you have not signed up online you can still go to the Spring Conclave as a walk-in. There is a five dollar additional fee for walk-ins. Recently we have been getting a lot of e-mail about what to bring and carpooling. The following is a list of items that you may wish to have this weekend.

Additional Gear: In addition to the standard list of personal camping gear that is outlined in the Boy Scout handbook on pages 292-293.

  • One complete “Class A” uniform and OA Sash.
  • Personal Electronics* (mobile phone, iPod, camera, Game Boy, iPad, computer, etc.).
  • Sun Protection and Gear.
  • Swimming Suit and Beach Towel.
  • Optional Tent (refer to notes in camping section)

For those taking brotherhood:

  • Your OA Handbook (limited number of chapter OA Handbooks available)
  • Paper and pen for writing/notetaking
  • Whittling knife or a pocket knife

* Note: All brothers are responsible for their own personal gear and will respect others in the use of electronics.

Camping: Tosohatchee has campsite 12 (Pawnee) and 11 (Ponca) reserved. A campsite 12 is reserved for late night/early morning activities (no curfew). Campsite 11 is a “lights out & all quiet” at 10:00 PM area. Not much sleeping really happens in campsite 12. Tosohatchee brothers should choose a campsite that will suit them for the weekend. All bunks inside the activity shelter’s are reserved for adult leaders. Brothers that are not comfortable sleeping in one of the LaNoChe camp tents may bring their own tent or move their camp cots into the activity shelter (while space is available). Our goal is to make sure that everyone has a great time in a comfortable, safe and friendly environment.

Of course there will be a scorching game of silent Uno for the truly talented. We also have a selection of “chapter favorite” movies to choose from. If you would like to bring a movie, only G, PG, and PG-13 rated are permitted. During the day of Tosohatchee-ians are encouraged to participate in the activities of the weekend. The Tosohatchee chapter has also volunteered to serve and clean up Saturday lunch.

Carpool: Tosohatchee chapter will be carpooling from the Waterford Winn-Dixie parking lot, leaving at 5:30 PM Friday night. There is no posted costs or fee however parents can donate a contribution to drivers for gas if they wish. We will not be stopping for a meal break on the way up. The Lodge will have a Café open for food at Camp LaNoChe. Scouts should bring money with them to purchase food Friday night. The rest of the weekend is covered in your registration fees. If you are interested in carpooling up to LaNoChe please let Stan Richards know at scouterstan@gmail.com by Wednesday night.

It is our hope that this additional information will help you make appropriate decisions to maximize your enjoyment of Conclave. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact any of the chapter leadership.

Yours in brotherhood,

Thomas Calvert II
Tosohatchee Chapter Chief
