To All Boonsboro Campout The weather could not have been better, the site was great, the scouts got things done and the food was delicious.  Other than that, the creek was a little high and muddy but did not prevent James from catching two fish, a catfish and a small mouth bass.  Both were returned to the water to carry on.  We had a little car trouble at the end, dead battery,  but were able to jump start and recharge the battery enough to get a new one locally.

To All White Oak Camporee Well, it wasn't the rain this time but the WIND.  It blew gustily almost all night Friday and most of Saturday.  It damaged a few tents, nothing un-repairable but set us to thinking about new tents, more to come on that subject. The Scouts did fairly well for the most part, most are learning their camping etiquette, keeping camp clean and working together.  They had fun with the various events and while not winning any contests, they participated.  Some rank advancement got accomplished and lots of food was consumed.  The rain did put in a light, brief appearance Sunday morning when we were packing up to leave.  A lot of the packing was done the night before in anticipation of the rain so a cold breakfast was eaten and we were ready to leave by 9 AM, our earliest packup yet!  There was some confusion with transportation  but the problems were solved. The Troop has at various times had a member of the Committee or a qualified parent serve as The Transportation…
