Camp Time!

July 21st at o'dark thirty arrived after much anticipation. [My camera date is off a day.] Pups climbed into a 15 passenger van and endured the 7.5 hour trip to Camp Pendleton. All pups were accepted into the program and are enjoying the rigors of camp. Here are the pups and Col. Toole leaving St. George at 3:00 a.m. on the 21st:

Ready to Go?

Devil Pups: Are you ready? Are you excited? We are . . . we know you are pumped and will do your best – AND have fun at Devil Pup camp. Remember to meet us at 2:45 a.m. (during the night between Wednesday night and Thursday morning the 21st) in the parking lot of the Claridge Inn on Bluff Street. We will take time for a few “before” photos and then head for Camp Pendleton, stopping in Barstow for a McDonald’s breakfast.

Remember, one bag, labeled with your name on two pieces of masking tape, one on each side for easy identification once 300 bags are stacked at Camp Pendleton. Follow the instructions for what to pack. Wear a plain white T-shirt, jeans, belt, and tennies. Carry a hoodie for warmth during the trip, during the cool California nights and cool California early mornings. It's definitely not Southern Utah weather at Camp Pendleton.

See you soon!

All paperwork requirements are in - except for one Soc. Sec. number. Service folders for camp are looking good.

We are in the process of publishing a Parent Contact List for the benefit of family and friends who may want/need to contact each other before, during or after camp time. We have one family's permission to obtain and then we will send that out to each of our 2011 Devil Pup families.

PT workouts with the Marine poolees are to be held on Thursdays at 5:00 p.m. If you wish to participate, you can meet at the Recruiting Office across from Red Cliffs Mall. Kelsey is working hard on her PT scores; better get in shape to keep up with her!!!
