Gear will be inspected and envelopes collected on Tuesday, August 5 at 7:00 pm at EPLC. This will be the same as Owasippe gear check so please double check that everything on this list is packed.
Bring all medications on Tuesday, August 5, clearly labeled.
Mr. Gawne will send out more info on spending money and envelopes. There will not be many envelopes, but a few, such as Cedar Point. More to come.
On Tuesday, August 5, bring 3 baggies of cereal clearly labeled with name.
