Check-in will start at 9:00 am sharp. Each Wagon will enter Independence Station to register and go through inspection.
Each Wagon Must Have:
  • A Handbook for each rank
  • First Aid kit
  • Long strong rope

  • 2 (or more) pair of work gloves
  • Filled water bottle for each Scout

Your Pack will need a cheer to shout at the entrance of each station to let the Station Master know that you are there and ready to compete. Each station will have a maximum number of points to be earned, they will be awarded or subtracted at the Station Masters discretion.

Many of the stations will also have a Webelos Challenge, that can earn bonus points for the pack. You can also earn bonus points by being in a western costume. And, as always adult supervision is required, but adult participation will result in a trip to the rattlesnake pit.

Before check in please make sure that all of your Scouts are wearing proper footwear, with all the melting snow, we are anticipating a lot of mud. (And if there isn’t any, we are going to make some  )

Spittle and Whittle: Pocket knife safety, and demonsration. Scouts that have their Whittling Chip may bring a pocket knife, they must have their chip on them or they will not be able to use the knife. While older boys are demonstating whittling skills, younger scouts will be testing there skills with sunflower seeds and spittoon buckets.
