Three Cub Scouts and their parents attended resident camp located at Camp Grizzly.  Those participating were Travis Alfrey and his Mother Pat, Caleb Butler and his Mother Jessica, and Matt Coppernoll and his parents Keith and Aleta.  The theme for this years camp was a pirate theme.  The staff all dressed as pirates.  We spent 3 days and 2 nights at camp.  The days were filled with many activities such as bb gun shooting, archery, map and compass, geology, water games, pirate ship building and constructing ping pong ball cannons.  The most exciting activity was the survival island.  The boys rode a boat to the island and cooked crickets on a camp fire (sauteed in olive oil and garlic and wrapped in spinach leaf).  Every one ate at least one and decided that's the only way to eat them. We got to stay up late one evening and hike up to the meadow for a star talk.  We learned the names of many constellations and where they are located.  There was also a meteor shower that night, so we were able to see lots of meteors.  We enjoyed campfires, skits and songs every evening at the fire bowl.  We were able to earn some belt loops and sign off a few activities in our books.  We want to thank everyone who purchased popcorn from us last fall, as this was the fundraiser that helped to send us to camp. In the photo:  left to right are Caleb Butler, Matt Coppernoll, Travis Alfrey. Photo provided by Aleta Coppernoll. Click on the photo for a larger view.

New at the Fairgrounds this year is a concrete walkway through the midway area between the Agee Building and the Livestock Sale Building and cattle pens (top photo). A concrete walkway was also poured along the southside booth area as you head toward the gazebo (lower photo). That strip also goes around the corner to the Farm & Ranch Museum.
