Another exciting Camp Tuscazoar Event and the weather was fine! Fun was had by all and here are the pictures to prove it!!

Fire Gold Rush 1998

Fire building has always been a skill which challenges the wilderness camper.

These scouts did just fine... eventually.
Ball Gold Rush 1998

With a mighty heave the softball heads for the bottles!!!

Tree Gold Rush 1998

By sighting past his thumb this scout uses his buddy to judge the height of the marked tree. The task was to calculate where the tree's crown would hit when the tree was cut down. Each patrol drove a stake into the ground to mark their selected spot.

At the end of the day's events the tree was felled and the patrol with the closest stake was awarded the most points for this task.

You all did a pretty good job and everybody was pretty close!

Neil Gold Rush 1998

Event Co-Chairman Neil Rupe gave patrols one last chance to pick up some event points by checking their equipment.


Outdoor wilderness bowling proved a real challenge and many a gutterball were to be seen this day!!
