You will need:

 

  • Wavier Each Pathfinder needs a current 2020-2021 Conference Wavier (many have fill out this wavier already online as part of their club registration), but if you did not sign an online wavier you need to bring a signed paper wavier or come with your parent for them to sign onsite
  • Lunch. Clubs will not be selling food this year at the Pathfinder Fair, so each person attending needs to bring a lunch with them. This is an outdoor facility and no electricity is available.
  • Seating. The fair is happening outside in a field. We recommend everyone bring foldable camping chairs for each person as no chairs will be provided.
  • Mask. Current Minnesota Health Department guidance requires a mask if individuals are inside or cannot maintain a 6ft social distance. As this activity is outside, masks will only be required if and when youth are not maintain the 6ft social distance.
