Happy Flaming Arrows- They have no idea of the LONG DAY that awaits them!
The Griswold is out . . . The Moosewold is in!
Noah's been working out!
Bring on the Tartar Sauce and fire up the grill!
Today was a very pleasant day at camp. Nice breeze all day, no rain, and lots of fun. Our scouts were working hard on their merit badges today.
Today we are featuring the Viking Patrol. A few members have sent home messages:
Jack:- "Hey Mom, Send $$$"
Brandon:- "COPE was fun"
Dante:- "OA Trail = PAIN!"
Brent:- "Dad, pick up my tab at the Trading Post"

Alex reads from the Chuck Norris Joke Book
5:45 PM began the flag lowering and introduction by our "guides", a fine group of Venture Scouts (in green uniforms). There was a long line at both ends of the mess hall for dinner, but all had been consumed by about 6:45. Tonight there is a chapel service at 7:30 PM and a large group campfire at 9:00.
Tomorrow morning the real work begins.
More to come,
Chaplain and happy blogger

While not part of any activity scheduled by the troop itself, Dr. Reynolds and four other scouts: Avery Reynolds, Jack VanKeuren, Greg Brinkman, and I acted as a color guard in the memorial service for the late Mr. Wayne E. Baughman. His widow, Linda Baughman, could not get the pastor of the service to allow a full military color guard in the memorial service (Mr. Baughman had served in the Air Force), so the scouts performed one instead, as Mr. Baughman had also served the Boy Scouts for about 52 years.
