Note: Due to late registration numbers and other, unforeseen circumstances, we cannot guarantee that Scouts who register after the initial deadline of Wednesday the 10th at noon will get their first choice of food option. Every effort will be made to ensure that a Scout gets the food that ordered, but we would ask Scouts to be Courteous, Kind, and Cheerful when it comes to meal selection! We will, however, make sure that every Scout is fed at the event. Thank you for your understanding.
