This was our big Catapult Show!

We decided as a troop to put on a game for this years event and we invited Pack 565 to join us. We had 14 Webelos and 8 Leaders from Pack 565 join us as our guests for the weekend.

The weather could not have been more perfect. Mr Gantt brought lots of fire wood and we enjoyed two nights of great fellowship around the fire with all in attendance.

The Catapult game consisted of 3 small catapults the scouts built and each team that came up had 3 shots and the furthest counted. From the results we were able to award a first, second and third ribbon to each of the Webelos, and Troop patrols that played the game. It was clear the winners were the ones that communicated the best amongst each other to get the most out of the catapult. Mr. Gantt went to camp early on Friday to help set up camp and to get the BIG catapult built as kind of a centerpiece. Our game drew lots of attention and all who played said they had a great time and looked forward to building there own catapults.

All the meals were great and the leaders from 565 all pitched in to help. Mr. Farbers boiled hot dogs went fast and Mr. Flamms cobbler warmed our bellies before bed.

Pack 565 said they learned a lot and had a great time joining us!

Great weather, Great fellowship, Great scouting.
