Plans for the Appalachian Ministry Network 2019 Royal Rangers Pow-Wow have been finalized. Pow-wow will be held at the Raleigh County 4-H Camp in Daniels, WV 25832 from June 20-23, 2019. We wanted to get this information out as soon as possible to provide the opportunity to have one the best Network Pow-wows ever for the boys to experience.
Our Pow-wow theme is “Medieval Times”. Pow-wow participants will enjoy many Medieval game and competition style activities. We want to encourage each outpost to develop a medieval “feel” to your outpost and campsite. We are inviting boys and commanders to come up with a medieval theme and come to Pow-Wow dressed up in medieval apparel. It would be so awesome to see other knights, squires and jesters traveling throughout the campsites during Pow-wow, heraldry flags flying, Celtic music playing, and draw bridge entrances to campsites (for just a few examples). My understanding is that “Sir Eats-A-Lot” is scheduled for a re-appearance at our Pow-wow.
We will also have a “build your own costume” competition day on Friday. We are asking that each outpost bring cardboard, duct tape, spray paint, and other materials for making swords, helmets, and shields.
Camping at Pow-wow will be by outpost and in tents. Provision and preparation of meals will be the responsibility of each outpost. If your outpost would like to have a staff member visit your campsite to fellowship with your boys and leaders, please prepare for one extra person to feed. (You can let staff know at registration if you are prepared). At least one district staff member will be available to visit at each meal time. We would love to spend some one on one time with you and your outpost. We will provide more details at the Pow-wow for picking up your staff member for the meals (location, time, etc.). A medieval style meal invitation would be appreciated by each staff member as a keepsake from this Pow-wow.
Ground fires are not permitted in camp sites. Outposts will only be allowed to have above-ground fire pits. Also, we appreciate families bonding, but ladies are not permitted in the campsite area after council fire. However, they are welcome to help out during the day and to attend the awards ceremony on Saturday.
We are excited and look forward to seeing you at Pow-Wow! If there are any questions, please contact us through the website.
