Fall Camporee


  • KARS Park Audobon Rd Merritt Island, FL, 32953 United States (map)

Sports themed fall camporee at KARS Park. We Came, We Saw, and We Conquered!

Troop 338 has done it again.  We won Best Troop overall for the 2013 Fall District Camporee!!
 
Not all events were judged such as Football, Ultimate Frisbee, Kan Jam, or Ladderball.  Some events were competed by assembled patrols, not necessarily the patrols we have in the troop.  This was done by the judges of the events at the scene.  Of those events that were judged, here are the results that I could remember:
 
Firewood Challenge: not Placed
Tripod Challenge: 1st, 2nd Place
Patrol Flag Relay: 1st, 2nd, 3rd Place 
Best Gateway: 338
Best Campsite: not us
Best Scout Spirit: 369
 
The feedback I got from the judges was that our scout spirit would have been 2nd place if they had that level of award, probably the same for campsite.  
Your preparation, skill, and positive attitudes have paid off and I am proud of all of you especially to our scout leaders who have stepped up so well this year.
