October 2005 - Foothills District Camporall - Woodruff Scout Reservation

Scouts: Martin Kaido, Rod Shirazi, Brian Flamm, Alex Pirtle, David Forman, Sam Francis, Peter McKenna, Alex Smith, Brennan Graessle, Ian Graessle, and Kenny Busey
Scouters: Paul Fitzner, Rick Farber, Eric Flamm, John Hall, Steve Busey, Dave McKenna, Tim Holahan, Robert Orrand and Pete Corbett

Our main goal in going to the Fall Camporee other than a good time was to put on a game that could be enjoyed by all the Webelo scouts attending. Our intent was to be seen and to tell the scouts who Troop 772 was and what we were all about, so they could keep us in mind when crossing over to Boy Scouts in the Spring.

The Troop put on a Lewis and Clark Relay game where we taught the Scouts how we were preparing for our trip to Canada next summer and the game was a relay race to full a simulated Duluth Pack with simulated gear (sand bags) and they had to get the heavy bag across the finish line. The fastest patrol won.

The Troop received lots of praise for the game and how our scouts presented themselves. After the camp wide campfire the troop hosted a cracker-barrel and some of the Webelos leaders stopped by to partake and learn more about us while view a slide show on a laptop.

It is always enjoyable to be a part of Council events and this one had a real purpose as we need some Webelos and their leaders to join us next spring.

Great weather, Great fellowship, Great scouting.

Scoutmaster Corbett
