DISTRICT POW WOW 1997 by fjwuxn


									                    July 30th –Aug 2nd , 2009 - (Thursday thru Sunday)

                                “The Last Round Up!”
That’s right guys it’s Pow-Wow time. Time for Worship, praise, fun, friends, fellowship and
relaxation. Pow-Wow is our big event and we want you to come and have an awesome time.
Commanders it time for prayer we want you to begin praying right now for an outpouring of the
Holy Spirit at Pow-Wow this year. It’s my desire to see every boy that attends Pow-Wow to be
changed to be ignited in a real life changing way. So let’s start Pow-Wow Preparations on our
knees before we ever get a tent off the shelf.

Camp New Hope brings with it a new Outpost Competition! With the Western/Cowboy theme
we decided to hold a Covered wagon race. Each Outpost will build a covered wagon and race
it around a predetermined course with obstacles and a few surprises along the route. The
complete set of rules is included later in this packet.

 Camp New Hope has some good places to camp; however some areas are a little light
on shade so make sure and bring an awning or two. The Campsite Award will be on the
fore front of everyone’s thought. The score sheet is included later in this Packet

The Junior Leadership Training Academy will be running prior to Pow-Wow as usual.
We have JTC, JTT, JMC, JFC, JSC, and Honor Guard Camp. If you have, boys in your
Outpost that would like to attend Academy contact Commander Tim Bowman.

COST: $80.00 per person/$75.00 for additional Family Members if paid by the

CAMP THEME: “Last Round UP! ” Matthew 18:12-14 “…if a man owns a
hundred sheep and one wanders away, will he not leave the rest and find the lost …”
This theme brings a western feel to our camp this year. This should bring a multitude of ideas
for archways, standards, yells and songs. This theme also helps to remind us that the end is
near and we should be doing all we can to bring the lost into the herd! We are really excited and
anxious to see those camp archways uo all long the roadway. So don’t hold back and bring
your best creation to camp and take home a trophy.

              See You At Camp NEW HOPE!
           Sammy Moppin, District Commander
                      Council Fire Speaker
                                 Rick Dostal

We are excited and honored to have Rick Dostal with us this yea as the
Pow-Wow speaker. Rick has been a main stay in Royal Rangers holding
positions with the national Office such as Training Coordinator, FCF
President and Camp Eagle Rock Coordinator. Rick has had the
opportunity to speak at many differ rent Royal Rangers event and we are
lucky to have him here with us this year. Rick will inspire the boys of this
district as speaks wearing his western attire.

Rick has a ture heart for the boys and men of Royal Rangers and I know
that he will allow the Spirit of God to guide and direct him while speaking to

Commanders I believe we are in the last days that is why we chose the
theme the “THE LAST ROUND UP” each and everyone of us have kids in
our Outpost, Churches, and cities that need Jesus. I pray that this theme
bring to your mind those kids that are around us everyday that truly need
Jesus. I pray and am asking you to pray with me that this Pow-Wow will
equip our Royal Ranger Boys to go out and help “Round UP” the lost kids
in our communities and bring them in.

Please begin to pray with me now that God will show us his glory, and that
we will grow in terriorty as we reach these kids for Christ.
      WELCOME - 2009 Summer Royal Ranger’s - POWWOW
          We hope to see every outpost participate in this “AWSOME EVENT.” We have lots of exciting
activities planned for the boys such as: Archery, Paintball, Cardboard Race and more. Friday and
Saturday are Fun days with events for all. To fully enjoy this opportunity, it is important that you carefully
read the entire contents of this camp packet.

                                           GET ORIENTED
          One of the first things to do after you have set up camp is to get oriented to the area. Review the
Camp Schedule to see if there are any changes posted at Backer Lodge and at the Concession area.
Staff will be working around the camp in various capacities if you need assistance please contact one of
                                            PASTORS DAY
        Friday will be promoted as Pastors Day. This is an opportunity for your pastor to come to camp
and enjoy the activities with your outpost. Have them stick around for dinner that evening. Pastor plan to
attend our evening council fire service with your outpost, you may even want to spend the night in a
special VIP area with your outpost and watch your boys compete in the Saturday events including the
“Covered Wagon Races”. The pastor’s camp fee and meals are free. All pastor’s attending will receive a
patch and T-shirt. Be sure to check in at the Staff Lodge.

         Camp staff members will be located at various events and activities around camp. They will be
glad to assist you in any way they can - particularly in the area they are assigned to. If more information is
needed check at the Staff Lodge and someone will be happy to radio the staff member you are looking for.

        Because of warm climate, the official dress of the POWWOW is the POW WOW T-SHIRT and
jeans or shorts. After registration you will receive 1 Camp T-shirts and 2 Camp Patches, for everyone in
your outpost. We can only guarantee T-shirts and patches to those who pre-register.

         A variety of equipment and other items will be used for each event. Please do not move,
re-arrange, or use these items unless you are invited to do so. These items have been placed here at
great effort and expense.

           The camp is open for visitation on Saturday beginning after breakfast and continuing until 4:00
p.m. that same evening. It is an opportunity for parents, children, and spouses to come up and take in a
little of the Powwow experience. There have been a growing number of guests on Saturdays to witness
the spectacle of our annual “Covered Wagon Race”. We encourage those who would like to visit to check
in and out at the Staff Lodge upon entering and exiting the camp. We look forward to spending the
afternoon with you.
This event will be returning from last by popular request. We will be using the Genesis
Compound bows for this exciting shooting competition. The event will be scored by the boys
age not the group he is a part of. That means there will be first, second, and third places for boys
age 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14-15, and 16-18. This will provide the boys with a level competition
and give them a better opportunity to place in medal contention.

                             BB GUN SHOOT
We will be having an Individual and Team BB Gun Competition. Each Outpost can register up
to 3 teams of 5 boys on a team. The winning teams will be given trophies. Like wise we will be
holding an individual shoot as well with prizes awarded in the different age categories.

That’s right paintball! On Friday afternoon the only events that will be open will be FCF Village
and Paintball. Each boy will have the opportunity to shoot paintballs. We are constructing a
walking shoot for the Discovery Rangers. In this event the boys will walk a marked trial in which
they will shoot at a variety of targets and overcome obstacles along the way. The Adventure &
Expedition Rangers will get to play a 45 minute endless game called “Resurrection”. After a boy
gets shot he will go to a “Safe House” where he will wait 5 minutes before being turned back out
into the field of play. There will be poles setup throughout the field which will have a two-ended
flag placed in the top of each pole. The object of the game is to have more of your teams color
flags facing up than the other team. At the end of the game the team with the most flags up wins.

We will provide each boy with semi-automatic guns, protective gear, and 200 paintballs to start.
Each boy can purchase additional paintballs at $3.00/100 balls. Adventure Rangers will play
against other Adventure Rangers, and Expedition Rangers against other Expedition Rangers.

This year we are going to try something a little different. If a boy has his own paintball marker,
they may bring it with them; however, the boys Senior Commander must retain possession of the
marker until the proper time then regain possession of the marker upon completion of the
paintball competition. If any boys are found with a maker during any other time then his
prescribed time he will be sent home. If you bring your own marker, it will be tested and
adjusted to fire at 280 fps. Any questions need to be clarified with Commander Sammy Moppin
before you bring the marker to camp.
                           FCF VILLAGE
The FCF Village should be a center point of our camp. I am personally asking
every FCF member to set up a lodge in the village even if you are unable to stay in
it or not. I would really like to make the village an awesome place to visit this
year. The village will be open Friday and Saturday afternoon so all the FCF people
should be in outfits and ready to shine. This is a great opportunity to bring your
boys by and let them see and learn more about what FCF is all about. There will
be frontier demonstrations, crafts, and storytelling for all. All FCF members need
to be in costume and participate in showing the boys around the Village, sharing
with them the spirit of FCF.
1. Please bring lifejackets with you. The camp does have a limited supply of life jackets for us.

2. Please remember to have 6 people up at the dining hall for your assigned meal at least 30

4. New Hope has a swimming pool. Please instruct your boys on the buddy system and practice
   it before you come to camp. We will need each Outpost to send Commanders with their boys
   when they come to the swimming area. Please check the schedule and bring the boys at the
   appropriate time do not bring them if their age group is not supposed to be there.

5. Camp New Hope is a large camp. The buddy system will in effect during Pow-Wow if any
   staff member finds a boy by himself he will be taken to the main lodge and released only to
   the Senior Commander of his Outpost. There is a lot to see and do at the camp we want
   every boy to experience the excitement scenes and beauty of Camp New Hope however, we
   want them to be safe as well, be sure your boys understand the buddy system and use it.
                                       POW WOW RULES
The following rules and regulations governing the Powwow are outlined for your Outpost safety as well as their
enjoyment of the facilities we have available. We must always keep in mind to leave the area in better condition
than when we came. A Powwow experience will never be forgotten by the boys or leaders, therefore it should be a
good experience for all and left with the desire to return next year. The rules should be covered with your outpost so
the boys and leaders understand what is expected of them.

         control and supervise the boys in their outpost at all times. Boys should travel to and from events using the
         buddy system. There should be no one wandering around alone. Know where your boys are going and
         make sure they have proper supervision. There is always the possibility of an accident.

            Properly clear the area for a fire. Fires are permitted ONLY in fire barrels! Camp New Hope does not
             provide us Fire Barrels. If you plan on having a fire in your camp you will need to bring a Fire Barrel or
             pit with you!
            Each fire shall have a bucket of water and sand readily available.
            Be sure there are no overhanging trees over the fire.
            Boys are not allowed to bring liquid fire starting fluid to camp.
            No candles or fuel lanterns will be allowed in tents or cabins.
            Make sure that when you leave your campsite that all fires are extinguished.

           Only boys who have completed the Royal Ranger Tool Craft course shall be allowed to use knives
            and/or axes.
           No sheath knives are allowed. Boys should bring pocket knives only.

4.       SWIMMING: Swimming will only be permitted during the scheduled times and in designated areas only! No
         boys may go into the water without a commander supervising them. NO EXCEPTIONS! The “Buddy
         System” will be strictly enforced in the swimming area/pool.

5.       REGISTRATION FORM & INSURANCE: Each boy is required to have a medical release and permission
         forms filled out in their entirety. Every commander/father needs to have a medical release and Pastor’s
         certification filled out in their entirety. The Senior Commander needs to keep one copy on file at his
         campsite and turn one copy in to the District when they register.

6.       PRAYER: Commander we ask that you start praying and fasting now that there will be many boys coming
         to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and being filled with the Holy Spirit during our council fire
         times. This is what Pow Wow is all about! Commit to pray daily that the Lord will move in a mighty way.

7.       COUNCIL FIRE: All Rangers and commanders must attend ALL morning and evening services. No one is
         to be left back in the campsite. It is also a time for announcements and presentations that you do not want
         to miss.

8.       VEHICLES: Vehicles will be allowed into the campsites for loading and unloading only. They must be
         removed as soon as they are unloaded. Due to the location of the camping area it may be necessary to
         offload your outpost equipment into a trailer and have it towed to your campsite. Any outpost that has not
         removed their vehicles from their campsite by morning assembly on Friday will not be eligible for Awards
         let’s be considerate and patient with the new arrangements.

9.       RESTROOMS AND SHOWERS: This camp has restrooms and shower facilities. We will be assigning
         some outposts to help us clean the restrooms and showers each evening. Remember we want to leave a
         good impression of Royal Rangers, as we would like to use this facility annually. If the restrooms need
         attention, please notify someone on the District Staff.
               GENERAL POW WOW                                                    RULES
