Hello Lighthouse District
Hello to ALL!
Let me introduce myself! My name is Adam Rabe and I am the new District Coordinator for Lighthouse District! I am very proud to have the chance to work with each and every one of you in the future. I love the Scouting program; I believe in it, I have grown up in it, and there is nothing more I’d rather do than see it grow! I know the Scouting program is alive and well within this district, as I have seen it first hand in some of my interactions around the counciland at summer camp. Please always feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, concerns or ideas, or just to say hello! I am looking forward to great times ahead!

Klondike Participants Survive the Apocalypse!
Scouters voyaged out to Camp Oh-Da-Ko-Ta this past weekend and braved not only the elements but also the threat of Zombie attacks. Congratulations to Troop 142 for taking first place and proving they are truly ready to endure the end of the world.
Troops proved their might by going through a series of challenges that tested them both physically and mentally. The day started with a very serious, yet some would say a bit “hokey” of a check, in order to make sure none of the participants were members of the undead (yet). Then, before Scouts started out on their journey of the day, they were greeted by Supreme Chief of the Fire, Mr. Ed Brandon himself, whom the Scouts showed just how they would defend themselves if faced head-on by a Zombie. The different patrols then made their way around camp where they showed their worth in the skills of shelter building, memorization, fire building, perimeter shooting and food protection. They didn’t give any rest to their preparations even through the lunch period. Patrols showed their skills with a knife and fork, as they were also judged on cooking ability. Groups had a chance to celebrate at the end of the day with reward recognition followed by a fun game night.
A big thank you to all who helped out in running the event and to Troop 199 for being the hosts for the weekend. A great time was had by all and we hope to see even more people next year!
