Baseline PFT

Congratulations to the 13 candidates who turned out at the Washington County Sheriff's Facility for the baseline PFT.  You all were great and your enthusiasm is appreciated.  As with most anything, improvement is needed and that's what the baseline PFT is all about.  We all know where we can improve now and we can work on that before the next PFT and before camp.  Now's the time to start working on your weakest events to get ready for the next PFT.

(2) Check the blog often.  
(3) For any donations parents, friends or employers want to make to Devil Pups, Inc., please let Steve Handy know so he can pick up the checks.  This allows us good accounting and gets the checks to the right person at Devil Pup headquarters.

Cell Phones at Camp

Can you take a cell phone to camp?  Yes, but.  Do you get that answer a lot??  Reality is, you may not have a cell phone during the 10 days at camp. You won't need it there, anyway.  What you can do is put your cell phone in a plastic baggie-type of container - like a Ziploc.  Put your name on the baggie and Col. Toole or Steve Handy will hold them for you.  The moment graduation ceremonies are over, you may retrieve them from Col. Toole, Donna Toole or Steve Handy.  We also require all pups and parents to gather in front of the reviewing stand for photos right after graduation anyway, so you will have your cell as soon as camp is over.  If you take a cell and don't give it to one of the Liaison Reps, then your cell will be locked in your luggage after check-in - you will be issued a sea bag upon check-in and only the items on your list of things to take to camp are allowed.  Anything, not on the list remains in your luggage and is under double lock during camp and returned to you at the end of camp.
