USS Lexington

Cub Scout Pack 446 will be participating in the Live Aboard the USS Lexington Program on March 4, 2017.

Where
2918 North Shoreline Blvd
Corpus Christi, TX 78402
 
Directions from Silvercrest are attached to this email.
 
Where to Park and Meet
We will all park in the same lot a few blocks away.  All vehicles will be parked under the Harbor Bridge in the Aquarium Parking Lot.  A map is in the attached documents.  You will then need to walk with your gear to the dock.  We will meet near the Blue Angel Airplane prior to the ramp.
 
The forecast calls for rain on Saturday.  If it is raining at check-in, we may be asked to check in in the lobby of the Lexington, so check your email for more information.
 
Check-in Time
We need to check in and board as a group.  Please arrive at 1 PM in order to have enough time to park, walk, and distribute wrist bands.  These will be your ticket on board.  We will board shortly before 2, so please be on time.  If something happens and you are late, please call or text me at 713-446-1989 and we will arrange boarding.
 
Health Forms
Click here for a blank pdf health form.  You will not be allowed on the ship if each person (scout, sibling, or parent) does not have a completed health form on file.  Health forms must be no older than 1 year from the date of the event.  I need to have a binder with paper copies with me when we board the ship, so here are your options for turning them in.  Please include copies of your insurance cards.
 
A.  You can email scanned copies to jrroz@yahoo.com before Friday at noon.  I will print them out and have them on file.
B.  Someone will be at the park adjacent to Silvercrest elementary under the main pavilion after school on Friday (If it is someone other than myself I will provide a sign).
 
We will not have time to fill our health forms at check in, so please make sure that I have them prior to Saturday morning.  Again, I will not be able to print an electronic version after noon on Friday.
