Honored to serve as the Scout Strong Camporee Chief. The “more than a year in the planning” event at Camp Raven Knob was a magnificent success. Troops and more importantly Scouts came to CRK to learn Healthy initiatives, Healthy and Nutritious cooking and eating, and Physical activity. 500 Scouts and Scouters participated in the various activities CRK offers. New for 2018 was a Boundary Hike with Mike Jones, and 5K and Triathlon coordinated by Chris and Brooke Hull. Rebecca Bobbitt displayed the best of the best in healthy and nutritious backpacking and hiking meals and snacks.
Starting Early was the 5K. 11 scouts ran and the First place finisher was back in 17 minutes and 40 seconds… The triathlon started 15 minutes after the 5K went off. We had scouts coming back to canoe , then bike… Special thanks to our Lifeguard and Mike Warner and Tim Lasley. We got canoes ready and then took off to make sure the participants were safe on the Water… No Jet Ski used…. Just good old fashioned paddling and rowing.
Opening ceremonies gave introductions and direction. We had a Final Scout finish the Triathlon during opening and receive an Ovation.. A Full day of displays, Hikes to the Knob, Boundary Hike and Many of CRK regulars. Climbing, Shooting Sports, and Camp Scavenger Hunt were among the many vendors. Scout Store had tremendous response to the Scoutmaster Rocking Chair. Troop 919 got several an I was awarded the ROCKER for Time as Camporee Chief. Thanks Yall
