Replacing stolen gear for Troop 121

Troop 121 leaders found that our troop trailer, full of camping gear, was broken into somewhere around Sunday May, 23.  At first glance, it seemed the missing gear totaled around $250 which included stoves and cast iron cookware.

After doing a deeper inventory, we had to adjust our total loss and damages to about $3,500 after we found that five canvas dining flys, multiple sets of dining fly poles, two folding tables, five propane lantern trees and lanterns, and lots of other miscellaneous gear was also stolen.  This includes the costs to repair the trailer doors where the hasp was sheered off and the doors were damaged.  We also have to replace the license plate that was stolen.

We have had to postpone one of our Troop's largest camping events of the year due to missing the needed gear to have a successful campout.  Any money that is donated will go to the Friends of BSA Troop 121 to replace any missing gear and purchase additional gear as needed.
