This list is for the Military Police. If a person in your vehicle is not on this list, you might not be able to enter MCRD on the workshop date.  If you aren't 100% sure a Scout. adult, or additional kid will attend, include them in this list anyway.  It is better to have the person's name on the list and end up not having them show up for the workshop, than to try to add people to the list at a later date, or have someone show up on the day of the workshop and not be on the list at all.

We need your cell phone number in case we need to get a hold of you the day of the workshop.
