The Crew decided to join the Order of the Arrow Kennesaw Chapter for a winter camp out at the Lake Allatoona Aquatics Base. While it was cold, a good time was had by all as we enjoyed lots of time by the fire, worked on wilderness survival skills, and cleaned up trash along the shore line. Sunday morning was beautiful and crisp, as the sun came up over the water. A great end to a great trip.
He had a great time playing Risk, 7 Wonders, and Blockus. Great food and a great time!
We had a great second session of the Photography Clinic. We got to see lots of great pictures and their photo stories were imaginative and fun.
Six of the participants also earned the Photography merit badge. Great Work!

We had a great first session for our Photography Clinic and Merit Badge. Our guest instructor, Ms. Susan Ripley walked the participants through the camera operation basics and then discussed different techniques for taking pictures. We can not wait for the November session to see everyone’s photo stories.

During our May meeting, the Crew decided to get a little creative and have some fun during the first ever Lego Hunger Games Challenge. The crew members where paired up into districts, got 30 seconds to raid the cornucopia, and then build a tribute (based on a picture) for the capital. The districts with a tribute that best matched the picture was showered in fabulous prizes and glory! Needless to say, the pictures do not do justice the carnage going on at the cornucopia!
A number of our crew members attended the Order of the Arrow Section 9 Conclave over the weekend. The Conclave includes lodges from all over Georgia and parts of Alabama. We got to experience a new scout camp, Black Creek scout reservation which is operated by the Coastal Georgia Council, and located about 60 miles from Savannah.
Lots of fun trading patches, talking with various presenters (the Georgia Crime Scene Investigator was pretty cool), games, and we got exposure to Native American regalia, drumming, and dance. Great weekend.
