Camporee: A Washout

Sunday, October 14th, 2007


Tent In Rain

Well, Camporee didn’t work.
We (six of us) went out to Blue & Gray Park and registered early in the morning.
It was already raining and the start of the event had been delayed by 30 minutes (to 9:00) to allow the lightning and rain to stop.
We set up a small canopy and let the scouts get out of the vehicle.
It kept raining harder.

The start was delayed until NOON.  Everyone was told to go ahead and eat lunch early (10:30).
It kept raining harder.

At the next leaders meeting, Camporee was canceled.
It kept raining harder.

We decided to salvage the day by going to Cabella’s and Nebraska Furniture Mart and CC’s Pizza.


Here’s a video from the neatest gadget we saw at Cabella’s.
