Meal Plan / Dietary Restrictions
The Greater Tampa Bay Area Council recognizes that there are many potential dietary restrictions as well as common diets (e.g., low-calorie and low-carbohydrate) and common food allergies (e.g., to gluten, citrus fruit, dairy, eggs, fish, nuts/ peanuts, and shellfish). Individuals will need to consider this and avoid such items in their choices in the dining hall. In addition, remember that the Food Team cannot feasibly plan for all specific dietary needs of all persons attending the event. Therefore, all special dietary needs must be indicated at the time of registration. Depending upon the special food requirements they may be asked to make their own arrangements to meet those needs by bringing their own food — just as they would bring their own medications. Any dietary requests made within 2 weeks of the event will not be able to be honored.
Council event attendees, including participants and staff, are required to comply with the Council's current COVID protocols. Failure to do so will result in removal from Council properties and/or events and forfeiture of event registration fees.
All participants must submit a pre-medical event checklist and waiver upon entry, All participants will be health screened upon entry.
