Troop 29

Quartermaster's Corner

Our Troop Quartermaster is responsible for all Troop gear. Maintenance as well as proper care, handling, and use of all gear is part of the responsibility of the scout who is selected as Quartermaster. Troop 29 is fortunate to have a good supply of equipment. The video's and links below were created by our Troop Quartermaster and the additional information provided below is to help scouts with equipment questions.
Additionally Quartermasters may post other important notes and information for general troop information.

Be sure to read this update on a regular basis.

Troop 29 Equipment

Equipment Description Training
Alps Mountaineering Extreme 3

The Extreme is a free standing aluminum pole tent, with a configuration that is extremely strong and sturdy. The 3-pole design gives you more "framework" to combat Mother Nature when she decides to send you a little stronger storm than normal. Assembly is easy with pole clips that quickly snap over the tent poles. The polyester fly and floor are urethane coated, with factory sealed seams for maximum weatherproofness. A door on each side of the tent makes getting in and out of the tent easy. You also get two large vestibules that you can use for extra gear storage. The vestibules also serve as automatic guy-out points when the weather gets a little nasty. The fly buckles to the tent, offering a much more secure attachment when compared to elastic cord. Extra large #8 zippers on the doors and vestibules add to the durability. Mesh roof vents increase ventilation and improve star gazing
Camp Stove

Classic series 2 burner stove offers two over-sized 3 - 3/8 inch burners adjustable to 9,000 BTU each with stainless steel drip tray. Our wind baffle pot supports help Shield burners and the built-in carry handle and folding legs lock the cover for easy carrying. Run with 16.4oz propane cylinder
Portable Lantern This propane-powered lamp shines 967 ultra-bright lumens to light up the darkest night. Just one tank will power the lantern for nearly 14 hours on the low setting and nearly 8 hours on high.
Propane Tree The three-outlet propane distribution post lets you operate three propane devices - such as a lantern, stove, and heater - simultaneously from the same bulk cylinder.
Dutch Oven The 2 Quart Camp Dutch Oven is the pot that does it all! The flanged lid holds hot coals and inverts for use as a griddle. Need high heat? Situate the Dutch oven perfectly over hot coals, thanks to the integral legs.

The job of the Quartermaster is to take responsibility for all troop gear and equipment. The Quartermaster is also required to keep and maintain equipment records, with the help of the patrol quartermasters.
