We had a great fall Court of Honor camp out this weekend at Lake JaCoMo. We had members of 4 patrols camping over the weekend and a great big bunch of parents and siblings joined us on Saturday night for awards and some delicious dutch-oven cobbler.
We had 6 Webelos/Arrow of Light Scouts join us for tent-raising and firebuilding competitions, and 4 of them stayed to take place in the annual Troop 265 Golden Ladle Competition. Think “Iron Chef” or “Chopped” but with MUCH higher stakes. Each patrol was given identical ingredients (with a secret ingredient) and 1 hour to make a meal to impress our panel of brave guest judges.
The winning plate was from our Patrol of Mic-O-Say Tribesmen with their pan-fried Mexican biscuit tortas.
They must have been very good because when the Scoutmaster asked for a sample he was told, “Sorry, they’re all gone.
Thanks to all the families who came out and shared their weekend with us. It means a lot to the Scouts to have so many folks out to see them get recognized.
