Eddie gets to go home with (see the final standings)…?

2 May


Scoutland, Gainesville GA

Spring is certainly in the air. And so, let the camping season officially begin with some great news about our Spring Camporee. With a waft of fresh cut grass and newly bloomed trees mixed with smoldering coals for a morning camp breakfast, the competitive spirit was beginning to steep. The brackets were set and by 9:30AM teams took the field for the ULTIMATE CAMPOREE’s Epic Tournament! It WAS an epic battle! 16 teams fought hard for the title of ULTIMATE CHAMPS… but Ultimate wasn’t the only game going on.

Team Bravo (207) came out to win, and win they did early on in the Disc tourney. But it was their dominance at the Scout Skills games that gave them the edge taking the first prize points in Right On Target, Disc Brigade, The Crossing, and the Disc Tourney, as well as Third Place points in the Wheel Relay, Flaming Disc, and Disc Golf Orienteering… these guys flat killed it out there. Way to go… or should I say, BRAVO!?

The Ravens (303) put up a good fight with their Fourth Place showing in the final points, only missing a trophy chance by THREE points!! They dominated their side of the Disc Tourney bracket before falling to Bravo and were still able to score some hard-earned points at the competitions placing Second in the Wheel Relay and the Disc Tourney.

The big surprise was Team Charlie (207). Losing early in the Disc Tourney, they decided to concentratet their efforts on the other events taking First Place in the Distance Throw, and the Wheel Relay, they also came in a close Second (to Bravo) in the Crossing and took Fourth Place points in the Flaming Disc.

Congrats to all our winners and all of our Troops for another great Camporee… BIG THANKS to Andrew Johnson, our Camporee SPL whose original ideas began to form while working up at Camp Rainey Mountain last summer. Thanks for taking the initiative and executing a great plan!
