Recent Events

April 25-27, 2003 ~ Camp Sawyer Campout

This was a weekend spent with the troop and crew of Unit 485. Katrina, Nicole, Rodolfo, Juan, William, Keysy, Anaid, Jose, and Zhivago all went to represent the crew. We spent an interesting weekend in the Keys. Our crew went kayaking during the morning and had a lot of fun tipping people over, racing and relaxing. We also went swimming in the ocean and jumped off of the dock. In the later afternoon (after all the rain), we spent 2 hours fishing off the rocks near the pier. Juan won with a total of 8 fish, and Ray and Zhivago came in 2nd with 2 fish. Most of the weekend was very wet and windy, but we managed.


August 2, 2003 ~ Blizzard Beach Trip

This year, Katrina, Nicole, Rodolfo, Pollo, Jose, and Zhivago all went to Blizzard Beach representing Crew 485. We met many other crews and explorers (including Crew 384 and 313 as well as Post 1403.) Approx. 160 scouts attended this, and had a lot of fun. We arrived at the park at 10 and "played" til about 3pm when the storm came in. We didnt get to go on as many rides as we had planned, but we still enjoyed ourselves on the bus and at the park. Pictures will be coming soon!!!!
