The troop went on our annual water sports outing the weekend of August 8-9. We met at Kern UMC at 6:00 on Friday under cloudy skies and had 18 scouts, 1 visitor, and 4 adults. We arrived at the group campsite at Anderson County Park on Lake Norris around 7:00PM. There was a rain shower just after we arrived but it did not last long so we were able to keep our equipment dry for the most part. We finished setting up camp well before dark. On Saturday morning we had breakfast and got ready to head out on the lake. Four additional adults joined us at the campsite and we were fortunate enough to have 4 boats on the water. When you see them, please thank Ron Cacheiro, Jeff Reynolds, David Laffoon, and Keith Jeter for bringing their boats. It was a little windy but otherwise the weather was perfect. We were out on the lake for 2 1/2 hours before lunch and then went back out for another 3 1/2 hours in the afternoon. Back at camp we had dinner and several scouts went fishing to work on the Fishing Merit Badge. One of the adults caught at nice bass (using a piece of hotdog for bait) but none of the scouts had any luck. Sunday morning we had breakfast, packed up, and got back to Kern UMC around 10:00AM on Sunday morning.
