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.

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.
