Greetings Webelos,

The Scouts and Leaders of Troop 26 would like to invite you to join us for a Webelos Hallo-Weekend this October at Dog Iron Ranch – The lakeside birthplace and childhood home of Will Rogers.  If you are ready to get outside and learn more about the Scouting Program, please plan to join us!  And don’t be surprised if there is a guest appearance of our featured creature this year…The Creature from the Black Lagoon (a.k.a.) Oologah Lake)!!!

WHERE:  Dog Iron Ranch – Oologah, OK  – Will Roger’s childhood home.

WHEN:  Saturday, October 26th through Sunday the 27th, 2019.  
(Or any portion of the weekend!)

WHO:  Webelos Scouts (and a parent/guardian) that are interested in Scouting.

WHAT  …should you bring?  Tent, ground tarp, warm clothing, boots or closed toe shoes, sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, rain gear, flashlight, water bottle, bug spray and sun screen if needed.  Bring your BSA Health Forms (A&B)  https://filestore.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/680-001_AB.pdf 

WHY:  This is an opportunity for Webelos to complete their Arrow of Light requirements, to camp with a Troop and it initiates the process of choosing a Troop.  It also helps us get to know each other.  The program will include Webelos Adventure pin, Scouting Skills including Whittling Chip, a monkey bridge, a Dutch oven demonstration, a nature hike on Eagle Trail, a Jack-O-Lantern Workshop (SEE FAQ – Bring a pumpkin), an awesome lakeside campfire program and even a late-night, plenty-scary, creature-feature movie!

HOW Much:  Three meals (Saturday lunch & Dinner, Sunday breakfast), program materials and an epic Hallo-Weekend patch designed by T26 Scoutmaster, Bill Shaffer, will be $20.00 (plus Eventbrite Fee) per camper for the weekend. The price will be pro-rated if you can only make a portion of the event and need fewer meals.  You can pay in cash at the event if you prefer but please contact us to RSVP by Wednesday, October 23th.

Welcome to Troop 26! Troop 26, in Tulsa, OK, meets every Monday evening at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Troop 26 is a boy-led troop with over 750 Eagle scouts since 1969.
