Fall Camporee

It was another wild and woolly Fall Camporee last weekend as we finally got some much needed rain in Montana. I was very impressed with the Leadership and the Scouts themselves getting all set up in the rain and wind that made conditions harsh. It takes a lot of intestinal fortitude to go camping in those conditions,but the leadership and I felt it was a character building experience. Not a complaint was uttered to me throughout the event despite not being able to have a campfire.
The skies cleared Saturday morning and gave us a most beautiful post rain event with sunshine appearing around noon. The fishing was difficult but the classes taught the boys some great fishing fundamentals. Mr Jewett and Mr Park taught fish bottom and top rigging and mr Lucas taught them how to make a spoon lure. Mr Locke and I did a casting class as well as fish cleaning and filleting. Fish cleaning was popular as well as Tammy Luca’s fish cooking 101. The evening campfire (propane)and skits was clear and star ridden with calm winds. We were also visited by some Webelos and I hope they had a good experience as well……………..
