A Good Turn for the Rotary Club

The Rotary club was using a drone this weekend to take aerial photos of Camp Rotary in Monarch. The drone crashed and they need some Scouts to help find it this weekend.

Camp Rotary is our annual location of the Lewis and Clark District Klondike Derby.  The Rotary Club of Great Falls has been very generous to us over the years, giving us access to the camp at greatly reduced rates.

We know the general area where the drone crashed, but need to organize a search party to locate and retrieve the device.  The Club will spring for lunch for any Scouts that can help out.  Time spent, including travel time, can count towards service hours needed for rank advancement (talk to your Scoutmaster first, of course!)

Please message Aaron (aaron@weissman.com, 868-8982) if you can meet at Camp Rotary on Sunday mid-morning to help.

The boys should all have a change of clothes plus extra socks gloves etc.
You will need to bring your fire wood for cooking or what ever you are going to cook with. 
You will also need to bring your own water to cook with and wash with.  There will be no cooking or washing facilities available.
The road from the highway to the camp is approximately 2-3 miles long and is basically a one way road.  We have arraigned for plowing but it might be a good idea to bring tire chains and a tow chain or rope.  I have always found that when I have them I don’t need them and when I don’t have them I need them. 
Also be sure that you have enough rope and poles for event # 6 Hoist a log and event #10 Tying 8 knots.
As the Cubs will be staying in the Main Lodge they will be in charge of cleaning it up.  Bring supplies!!!
Due to the limited parking area, it may be necessary for some to come into camp and unload and then go back and park at or near the Lazy Doe.
Good Luck and see you there.
