Background[edit | edit source]
New in 2017[edit | edit source]
Camp King picks two squad names[edit | edit source]
Camp U-Prep 17 picks two squad names[edit | edit source]
Insights[edit | edit source]
- Each squad gets to pick its own name from the list below. But, park names can not be repeated from one year to the next. Names with a strike though were already taken and can't be used again.
- To claim a name, go to this page and put four ~ characters next to the name. That looks like this for me, Rauterkus (talk) 23:02, June 28, 2015 (UTC).
- There will not be any printed papers. Only digital.
Golly, did we even name our squad in 2016[edit | edit source]
In 2016, we had one pool with one camp, Brashear pool from Camp Carmalt. I do not think we even picked a squad name, but I can not remember.
