Shooting Campout

This campout started out great. Warm 76 degrees, sunny, and DRY. We met at the lockup just as we always do, but the scouts were joyed with the good weather. While some were finishing their dinner, others were loading chest full of ice and getting ready to load the trailer. Thanks to Bryan Creelman, we made quick work of loading the trailer and a few other vehicles. We then departed for camp Friedlander, where campsite Kroger was awaiting out arrival. We setup camp, some in tents and others in the two cabins that were in Kroger. That night there was an opening meeting that we attended to kickoff the official campout. There were 8 or 9 troops in attendance at the camporee. After the meeting we went back to camp and we went to bed, only to wake up to a beautiful morning. It was around 70 degrees, semi-cloudy, but a storm was brewing. We then shot BB gun, Slingshot with Lima beans, archery, 3D archery at fake animal decoys in the woods by the archery range, .22 rifle, 20 gauge shotgun, paintball, and threw tomahawk. During lunch in between the shooting, there was a Civil War reanactment that came out and taught us about the different guns and even a cannon! (Pictures and videos on Facebook) Luckily the rain held off for us. It finally started to rain about 10PM and didnt stop until after we departed after the campout. The night ended in a closing campfire. There were several awards given out. Eli Stelter (11) won 2nd place in the youngest age group, Ben Reichardt (15) " Richard" won 3rd place in the 15 year old age group, and I won 2nd in my age group(15)"Meltor". Overall we had a great weekend.

I would like to say this weekend we had a few funny names made.
Mr. "McCowan" (McOwen)
Hunter "Meltor" (hunter melton)
Ben "Richard" (Ben Reichard)

Pure awesomeness. Feel free to use their new nicknames.(PLEASE DO)

Until next time, thankyou for reading,
Hunter Meltor Troop Historian
