Family Camp & 40th Reunion
True to 101 camping, it rained, but that didn't dampen our spirits as we celebrated and had fun this weekend. A lot of history and stories were shared between generations near and far. One of our Eagles even flew in from Alaska to visit!
The day started like most family camp trips, canoeing around Pymatuning, but took a turn after lunch when each patrol was handed a frozen t-shirt, and told the first one to put it on would win a special treat. Competition was fierce, but the Owl Patrol took the lead and secured victory.
The group spent the remainder of the afternoon over at the lake swimming and playing with a Frisbee. Meanwhile, back in camp, dinner slowly turned over coals and guests began arriving from near and far.
Dinner was excellent, from sides to the main dish, an Ox Roast... 100 lbs of it! Special thanks go to Erik Hoover of Cockeye BBQ and Matt Kassos of Premium Meats! Both dad's have Scouts in the Troop.
After dinner we had a campfire led by Dr. Ken LaPolla. Songs and skits, followed by a short slideshow highlighting our last 40 years.
Photos from the event can be found in the Troop Photo Gallery. If you took photos, please send a disk to Mr. Matt or Jim Potjunas with your photos so we can add them to our collection. Please print your name on the disk so we know who to thank.
Thank you to everyone that was able to attend, or help with the Event. We would also like to give a shout out to the Kuszmaul family for the extra hours and time they put into this past weekend!
