Waterskiing Campout 
May 5-7
Palmetto State Park 
(Passing the BSA Swim Test is Required)

 

It's that time of year. Time to relax and have some fun on Lake McQueeney waterskiing and enjoying the sun and water. We will camp at Palmetto State Park and spend the day at The Lake Breeze Lodge on Lake McQueeney. Registration starts today and will close on Thursday, 27th April so please take the time to sign up now! The scouts will have the opportunity to work through the training and skill requirements for the Watersports Merit Badge.

 

Admission is $100 per skier and $15 per non-skier. This fee covers lunch at the Lodge. To  register and pay click on REGISTER NOW.  You will be able to electronically sign for the trip rather than have to submit permission forms.  At the end of the registration you can download the itinerary and PERMISSION FORM  If you choose to pay by check, please make it payable to Troop 266 and submit it to Mr. Doug Watson.

 

Please note that you will need to register and provide this  SIGNED WAIVER FORM for each adult and scout to waterski.


If you need any guidance,  please see instructions in the following New Registration and Payment Method for Campouts section below.

New Registration and Payment Method for Campouts
 

 For campouts we are using a new approach to registering for campouts using the West University United Methodist Church's (WUUMC) event pages.  It captures more information, including campout consents, and offers less challenges with payments than PayPal.  The site is straight-forward to use, but if you have challenges please follow these basic steps:

1. Click on the  Register Now link above to sign up and pay.

2. Enter your email contact information to receive a confirmation of payment.

3. Register using the "Continue as Guest" link or, if you are a member of the WUUMC and have an account log in with your ID and password.

4. Follow the instructions and be sure to click on "Add" when shown to have your entries tallied.

5. Answer the Request for Information questions, some are required for each person registered.  One question is your approval of Troop waiver provisions.

6. Review your payment summary and make a payment using a credit card or choosing to pay by check or cash.  

If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Sparkman at mdsparkman@icloud.com.

 
TROOP PHOTO PAGE ADDED
