Last PFT

Saturday the 22nd is our last PFT.  Everyone wanting to attend Devil Pup Camp 2013 needs to be at this PFT.  It is held at the same place - the Sheriff's facility in Hurricane at 750 So. 5300 W., Hurricane, UT 84737.  Time is 7:30 a.m.  There will be no car wash after this PFT.  After the results are in and have been tabulated, Col. Toole will advise by e-mail who the winners are.  If at all possible, the results will be posted by Saturday evening, both by e-mail and on this blog.

Location of Rummage Sale

We have had some strange calls asking if the rummage sale is at Ace Hardware.  There is a message on the JROTC web page that the sale is at Ace Hardware.  Not so - unless the ROTC is having an additional sale.  Don't know where that information is coming from.  Our rummage sale is same place as last year - Lin's Market on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Dixie Downs.  It is in the corner of Lin's lot nearest Sunset Boulevard.  Begins at 8:00 for the public (but we know people will arrive earlier). 

Final PFT

The final qualifying PFT will be held Saturday June 22 at the Sheriff's facility in Hurricane.  It will begin at 7:30 a.m. so we can be done before it gets extra hot.  All candidates who wish to be considered for Devil Pup camp in July need to attend this PFT.  All candidates still in competition are Micah, Andrew, Ty, Donovin, Justin, Cody, Daniel, Ryan and McKenzie.  You'll want to work on the areas that were weakest at the last test and do your best in all areas.  

After the PFT is over and scores have been totaled, we will let you know (most of you through your e-mail address) if you made the cut.  At that point you can work on any remaining dollars due (mentors will help provide work) and start planning and breaking in those hiking boots!  At the same time, make sure your parents, or other responsible people, are making reservations in Southern California or have someone to stay with so they can attend graduation on the 27th of July. 


Rummage Sale Saturday

It is here!  Time for putting your "once loved" items in the car to get them to the Devil Pup Rummage Sale at Lin's Saturday morning, June 15.  Devil Pups can show their desire to attend camp this summer but helping the Marines from the Marine Corps League sell items and help customers load their purchases into their cars.  The sale is from 8:00 a.m. to noon.  If you're bringing items for the sale, please arrive between 7:00 and 8:00 a.m. to help set up or unload your items.

SoUtah Devil Pups thank you for your generosity!!

June 8 Car Wash

This Saturday, June 8th, is a joint car wash for Devil Pups along with the Explorer Scouts at Hilltop Car Wash on St. George Boulevard, next to Dennys on the Hill.  The wash is from 9 a.m. to noon.  Col. Toole may arrive late; he is the installing officer for the Marine Corps League meeting being held at the Abbey Inn the same morning.  As soon as installation is over, he will go directly to Hilltop.  If he is not there when you arrive, check in with Steve Handy (he is the one you should give your envelopes of ticket sale money to) or Oscar Garcia.  Both Steve and Oscar are Devil Pup mentors.  We are told that another group has accidentally been scheduled at the car wash for the same day.  Be sure to check in with the Devil Pup group!
