    Team,

    This is the final formal communication for our upcoming Warrior Transition Unit event. Please read the information below carefully.

    What: Crosswater Outfitters w/WTU
    When: October 12 - 14, 2018
    Where: Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area (BLORA) - Lake Belton

    Event Schedule:

    The event schedule is attached. Note that the welcome briefing for CWO staff will begin at 10:30 followed by the Salt Covenant and then lunch.

    Immediate Needs:

    1. Please review the information below and pay specific attention to the following:
    a. Ensure that your attendance and role is accurately denoted.
    b. Ensure that, if you need lodging, that you notify Rick (chopper10@stcourses.org)
    c. Ensure that, if you must arrive late, that this is noted.
    d. Note that we still have need of leaders for some activities.
    2. Please note that we need a Child Care Captain for the devotion periods.
    3. Please also find attached the attendance list hot off the presses from Rick. Captains, please call your families prior to Friday to confirm their attendance and arrival times.

    Arrival Notes:

    You may arrive at BLORA any time on Friday and launch your boat. Lodging will be in the onsite trailers and assignments will be announced at the Captain’s briefing.

    Friday, 10:30 AM – Initial briefing followed immediately by the Salt Covenant
    Friday, Noon – Soldiers and families may begin arriving. Please have your boat in the water, jugs ready, and clean/pressed CWO Team shirt on.

    Directions:

    From Killeen: Take FM 439 east about 12 miles to Sparta Road and turn left. From there, watch for the BLORA signs - they are fairly prominent. BLORA will be on your right about 4 miles down as you traverse Sparta Road.

    From Burnet: Take US 281N to Lampasas, then US 190E to Nolanville. In Nolanville, exit at TX-439 Spur/Nolanville. From there, you need to do some maneuvering:

    Merge onto S Central Texas Expy
    Turn left onto N Main St
    Turn left onto W Avenue I
    Turn right onto 439 Spur/Farm to Market Spur 439
    Slight right toward FM 439 E
    Turn right onto FM 439 E

    Alternatively, you could take US 190 all the way to Loop 121, then turn left at Sparta Road, at Belton High School.

    I’m presuming everyone else knows how to get there from Temple, Belton, or the greater Austin area. If not, please let me know.

    Lodging:

    Lodging arrangements are in the attachment from Rick, but can be adjusted if necessary.

    Docking:

    As before, there is no dock at BLORA, so boats will need to be beached when parking. Please make allowances for this and bring a T-post if you have one. There is no electricity available at the docking site.

    Bait:

    Bait should be moving up shallow by the time of this event. Captains are responsible for ensuring their boat has enough to run jugs. If you need assistance with bait, please reach out to one of us and let us know.
