OA Trailblazers - October 6-8, 2017

posted Oct 17, 2017, 11:51 AM by Adam Silverberg   [ updated Oct 17, 2017, 11:55 AM ]

This year's OA Trailblazers was one for the record books.  We had over 70 people registered in our group including 25 scouts.  Our grub-masters outdid themselves with a great Saturday night meal.  It was a little sad to have to leave early due to weather concerns but we are very proud of the way the pack pulled together to keep everyone safe.  Thank you to the Order of the Arrow for another great year.  Already looking forward to next year!

Pack 61 Scouts headed to Unicoi State Park on Friday, 8/4/17 - Sunday, 8/6/17 for our annual Summer Campout.  This year's campout was a bit different, as we stayed on platforms built into a hill called The Squirrel's Nest instead of our traditional tent camping.  The boys had a GREAT time, and enjoyed the change of pace.  They rode bikes, hiked to Anna Ruby Falls, and played in the lake to cool off.
