Additionally, May 1st will also be the prep meeting for the backpacking camp out. IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON ATTENDING THE CAMPOUT, PLEASE BRING THE BACKPACK YOU PLAN ON USING. This will allow me to plan for how much space we have available for food and other gear. Also, bring any gear questions or concerns so we can sort that out on Monday.

There will also be a PLC before the meeting at 6:15.
