Make sure we have the following:

  1. Fully completed and updated medical forms (four copies!)
  2. Four copies of front and back of insurance cards
  3. Completed Hold Harmless Agreement
  4. Participant Information Form???
  5. Parental Consent Form - signed by both the Scout and parent/guardian???
