Hut Needs and Notes

If you are headed to one of the MCA huts, please consult the notes below to see what needs to be carried to the huts or fixed. All huts have tools and materials so that anyone can make basic repairs. If you have a favorite hut and would like to take the lead on organizing maintenance and repairs for that hut, the MCA would greatly appreciate your help.
