Family Campout, Oct. '09
The McClellans did a little offroading with their gas powered remote controlled cars on a long bumpy stretch of road that proved the perfect drag strip.
Just inside the camp gates, Mrs. Pederson set up the Archery range, much to delight of parents and kids alike, and helped guide bows and arrows for most of the afternoon.
Even the "future Scouts" found plenty of fun - this time in the wonder of a big stick!
While most spent Saturday afternoon playing, many of the Scouts took some time out to help prepare for Trent's Eagle Court of Honor ceremony in the Chapel.
Others helped line the path from the pavilion to the Chapel with luminarios that were stunning when lit.
After so much time and work, Trent found a moment to catch his breath and think about his last few hours as a Life Scout.
Always so cool to see a sash filled with Merit Badges and so fun to look and see which ones have been earned.
Brad L., a fellow Eagle, provided a dramatic soundtrack for the Ceremony.
Ethan B., the Troop's most recent Eagle Scout, also played a huge role in Trent's ceremony in full Mic-O-Say costume and paint.
Mr. Quraishi was proud to preside over the impressive Eagle Court of Honor as Master of Ceremonies.
Mr. Goodnight and Mr. Lueking, two of Trent's longest tenured leaders, served as Chieftains over the ceremony.
Finally, the moment arrived when Scoutmaster, and more importantly, proud Papa, Scott Perry awarded Trent with his Eagle along with a certificate signed by Chief Scout Executive Robert Mazzuca and the President of the United States.
