Scribes Report - Fall Camporee 05
On October 8 – 9, 2005 a group of scouts and leaders from Troop 474 went to the Lighthouse District Fall Camporee at Hammonasset State Park.  We slept over Saturday to Sunday and some people also slept over Friday to Saturday.  We arrived around 8:00 A.M.  At around 11:30 some rode bikes and some drove their cars to the Indian Festival at Meig’s Point.  There was Native American dancing, singing and good food.  It was very rainy.  It rained for 85% of the time (maybe more).  Due to the rain we got a lot of card playing in.  Brand new players to Bum, Egyptian Rat and more are now masters.  Challenging these people would not be the brightest idea.  The Flaming Seagulls were even  able to create a yell.  Maybe it will become a patrol yell.  Special thanks to all of the adults, Mrs. Jagielski, Mr. P., Mr. Terwilliger, Mr. Acampora, Mr. Wall, Mr. Van Steenbergen and Mr. Clark.  If I forgot anyone I apologize.  Thanks to Mr. Wall, Mrs. Jagielski and Mr. P. for cooking.  The food was awesome.  I think everyone was filled to the brim after dinner.  I was!!!  Thanks to Mr. Van Steenbergen for the fire.  We also got to ride bikes and play manhunt.  A good time was had by all.
