This weekend at Camporall, Webelos and AOL scouts from Pack 1714 joined us for a great time. We arrived on Friday night and setup camp while it was wet and dark. On Saturday we joined a scavenger hunt with Colonel Tom and our visiting scouts. We scurried around camp to get pictures to prove everything we found on the list. The afternoon consisted of Ultimate Frisbee, board games, manhunt and other games. Our campfire turned into an evening show due to the rain. The troop cheered as we won the scavenger hunt with a whopping 216 points. After the evening program we headed back to the campsite and played board games under the pavilion because of the rain. On Sunday morning we went to the Scout’s own service to remind us of our faith. Then we packed up and headed home. Click the collage below to see all the great photos from this past weekend! Gavin H.

Our very own Avery Shumpert completed his Vigil Honor Induction this weekend at Trailblazer. A quick recap for those who don’t know, there are three levels in the Order of the Arrow, Ordeal, Brotherhood, and Vigil Honor. Receiving Vigil Honor is exceedingly rare as the process involves getting nominated by your peers within the OA and getting approve by committee and national, before completing your Vigil Honor Induction. The Egwa Tawa Dee Lodge had roughly 900 registered OA members at the end of last year, and out of all those members across the Atlanta Area Council only 12-15 were selected this year to receive the Vigil Honor and Avery was selected as part of that very small group. He is the first new Vigil Honor recipient from our district since 2011! Next time you see him, be sure to give him a big congratulations as he is the first chapter member to receive the Vigil Honor is several years! CONGRATULATIONS AVERY, you deserve it!
