  • Rain gear

Q: “What time should we arrive?” 
 
A: “Registration generally begins at 5:30 p.m. for our events. We request that you do not arrive before this time as we don’t guarantee that we will be ready to check you in.
 
 
Q: “I (or my son) have medications that need to be taken throughout the weekend, how will that work?”
 
A: “Make sure you bring out some form identifying what medication it is you are taking, a copy of any doctor instructions if they are different from the label, and contact information on the form so our medical officer has documentation of this.  We usually let the scout manage their own medication during the weekend but if supervision is needed to ensure it is taken that can be arranged with our medical officer.”
 
 
Q: “I did not get to register in time or I am uncertain if I can attend the event. Is there a late registration or what should I do?”
 
A: “Except for Winter Banquet and Section Conclave you can simply be a walk-in registration. Make sure if you do this, that you have cash or a check to pay for the event.  If you are a walk-in there are no guarantees that there will be any of the optional items like patches or Friday night dinners(Spring Conclave & Fall Fellowship) available.
 
 
Q: Are my dues paid?
 
A: An example-If you attended Fall Fellowship in 2017 your 2018 dues are paid as part of registration.  If you completed your Ordeal during Summer Camp 2017 or Fall Fellowship 2017 your dues are paid for 2017 & 2018 as part of your Ordeal Fee.
If neither of those get you closer to an answer, email mitigwa.membership@gmail.com and we can look you up to see if your dues are paid for the current year.
