Summer Camp at Bayport Scout Reservation

Okay … it was a great week at Bayport Scout Reservation, our own council camp. The weather was pretty good, everybody earned Merit Badges, and everyone had a great time. Here’s the video from our stay.

Reconfiguring the Website

OK … after many years, the website is being changed a bit. The separate menu item for blogs is going away. All blogging activity will be on the main page here. I have added a link to all of the past videos, so none of that content is being lost. This should make the site more timely and up-to-date, as well as easier to maintain.

Camping

Well, the Maryland trip was a bust … too much snow predicted in the big winter storm. Wasn’t too bad at Camp Finney, but they had gobs of the white stuff nearby. We thought it prudent to cancel.

This weekend we went to the Virginia United Methodist Scouting Fellowship in Blackstone, VA. It was a beautiful Fall weekend … couldn’t have asked for better weather. A bit chilly at times, but hey, it’s November isn’t it? Just got back a few hours ago, and had a well deserved shower :-) .

Next weekend is the punkin’ chunkin’ at Bayport Scout Reservation. We’re putting the final touches on our trebuchet, and looking forward to flinging pumpkins great distances and watching them smash! Poor pumpkins … I think we’re also hosting some WEBELOS visitors, and look forward to welcoming them.

I should have a short video of the Blackstone trip posted soon over on the Chairman’s Blog. Take a look when you get a chance.

Oh, I almost forgot … the Troop has a FaceBook page to offer more options for information. It’s at http://www.facebook.com/boyscouttroop11.
