Well, it’s been ages since we’ve posted about anything happening in the land of Venture Crew 91. So we decided we’ll do one massive post with loads of pictures to get caught up on our happenings.
We participated in Relay for Life and had quite the blast. There was a crazy marshmallow war that took place at the Bannister’s. There were not any winners but the game was sure fun. Try using the massive marshmallows, ripping them apart and then throwing them…they stick to your targets! 🙂
Four of our members traveled to West Virginia to participate in the National Scout Jamboree as members of Jamboree Crew F404! What an awesome experience! We’ll dedicate a whole post to the Jamboree. There were just too many amazing things that took place for a synopsis.
Every year the Chillicothe Chamber of Commerce holds the CornFest. This year 125 dozen ears of corn were shucked, cleaned and steamed. Members of Crew 91 served hundreds of Chillicotheans close 1500 ears of corn! It was a great way to spend an evening giving back to our community.
We’re headed to Philmont next summer and we’ve been getting ready. Summer 2014 seems ages away but it’s never too early to start hiking. We spent a Sunday morning right after Jamboree hiking the trails at Camp Wokanda. It was perfect hiking weather and we’ll be hitting the trails for many months to come.
We attempted to use our speed boat last Sunday and that turned into an adventure all by its self. Attempt would be the operative word. Our speed boat is super fabulous…when it runs! We backed into the river and the boat was running. The boat ran for maybe two minutes tops…while still on the trailer! But never fear, Craig came to the rescue with his fancy fishing boat and saved the day. The weather was perfect, the water was fine and who knew a fishing boat could haul a tube at speeds fast enough to almost barrel roll.
The summer has almost drawn to a close. School resumes in our little town next week. Just because the summer is about to end does not mean the adventures will cease. We’re looking forward to an outstanding school year!
