Gold Rush Competition Review - 1998
Gold Rush X
February 13 - 15, 1998
Another exciting Camp Tuscazoar Event and the weather was fine! Fun was had by all and here are the pictures to prove it!!
Fire building has always been a skill which challenges the wilderness camper.
These scouts did just fine... eventually.
With a mighty heave the softball heads for the bottles!!!
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!
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!!
