Camp Geiger July 9th 9:00am
Medicine Man Walks Tall greets the candidates and informs them that some may be eligible to join the tribe of Mic-O-Say, and a tapper will decide who those candidates are. A yell is heard at the top of the hill. The Tapper, strong and steady, carrying a torch held high in one hand and a hatchet held high in the other, descends from the top of the hill towards the circle of hopeful candidates surrounding the fire. He runs around the entire circle, sizing up the potential tribe members and on the second time around he begins to tap the worth candidates. He runs around the circle, then slows to eye the candidate. He pauses, looking intensely at the candidates face,
the candidates eyes widen, their heart begins to beat a little faster, and after a determination is made, he taps the candidate with his hatchet, once, twice...and the candidate runs to a spot inside the circle, where he awaits his instructions and begins his journey into the Tribe of Mic-O-Say.
Okay, here's what you've been waiting for. These are the boys who were tapped into Mic-O-Say:
Robert Arnet, Matthew Bach, Evan Curl, Michael Hooks, Trevor Kay, James Koonce, Matthew Larsen, Erik Lowell, William McKinley, Christopher Modrall, Conner Osborne, Lee Pederson, George Petagrew, Ben Reineck, Adam Stephenson, and Nicolas Verdi.
Adult leaders tapped into Mic-O-Say were:
James Cole, Mark DiCiaccio, Michael Kay, and Bill Reineck.
Congratulations to all.
