The tent assignments were designed to split-up and mix the 6 clubs to aid everyone in getting acquainted. It was interesting to observe the difference between the girls’ and boys’ tents. The girls’ sleeping bags were all lined up neatly with precise personal boundaries, whereas the boys’ things were very random with no boundaries. The boys method may have contributed to making friends more quickly, though!
Sundown worship was enjoyed around a campfire with singing and S’Mores, followed by some hot Gnocchi soup. The highlight of the evening was the fast, exciting game of cat and mouse, with chasing and leaping-over-tall-people cats (Jacob😁) going after quick and elusive mice! After settling down with a coyote chorus lullaby and a beautiful moon, all enjoyed a peaceful sleep.
On Sunday, the breakfast was a bountiful feast of waffles, fruit, cereals, muffins, etc.
One of the sessions for the morning’s instruction included D & C (Drill & Ceremony) where some new marching moves were learned and old ones practiced.
Finally, after another delicious lunch of quesadillas, rice & beans, we struck camp, cleaned up, and said goodbye to friends, old and new, with the hope to see them at PBE or the next Pathfinder Event!
