If you would like to volunteer to help with this event in any capacity, we would greatly appreciate it. It takes a great many people to run these types of events, and we can always use people to assist marshals, serve feast, work gate, be a general runner, or be part of the clean-up crew. Please contact the Event Steward to sign-up. THANKS!

GATE will be located at the far end of the main Parking lot until 1pm on Saturday. It will then move to the Feast Hall up the hill to the left after 1pm on Saturday. For those arriving Friday Night, Troll will be briefly open from 5pm to 7pm.

PLEASE NOTE: THE CAMP RANGER HAS REQUESTED THAT ALL VEHICLES REMAIN IN THE SCOUT CAMP PARKING LOT except for loading & unloading. The ranger has also requested that we do not drive on the grass.

CHANGING AREAS: There is a large Restroom and Shower Facility located on the Lower Fields for Changing. There are also smaller Restrooms located in the Feast Hall.

ACCESSIBILITY – Where able, the Bashore Scout Reservation has worked to make sure its facilities are accessible to those with special needs within the limitation imposed by it being an outdoor facility. However, please be aware that there is a STEEP HILL between the Feast Hall and the Lower Fields, and most of the access roads and trails are NOT paved. There is limited Handicap Parking available next to the Feast Hall. A shuttle will be available for those wanting to get to the Lower Field; please ask at the Staff Table in the Feast Hall.
