Troop 811 Wins Top Troop Award at Camporee!



Troop 811 Wins Top Troop Award at Camporee!
Boy Scout troop 811 enjoyed another successful Camporee in April. Camporee is an annual weekend competition in which all of the troops in our north Orange County district of Portola test their scouting skills.  We won the coveted top troop award for the event because of our campsite, participation, and teamwork. Not only did our patrols do well in the many challenge events, but we did them well in the rain! Luckily, we had delicious food served by Grubmaster Mr. Swanson and other adults. Camporee is the only campout where the adults cook for us!  They served root beer floats, tri-tip, baked beans, pancakes, and cobbler  (but not in that order). Troop 811 also won first place in the Gateway Competition, which was designed by Nick Toller and Bryce Tsuyuki, and received the Gold Award for our campsite. The top patrol for our troop was Delta Force, who scored 4th place overall. Here are the Camporee patrol event awards we received: 1st Place Map Reading– Delta Force 1st  Place Compass Course – Purple Flaming Penguins 1st  Place Snapper Fishing– Delta Force 2nd Place Lifesaving Relay – Purple Flaming Penguins 3rd Place Team Ski Race – Delta Force 4thPlace Tomahawk Throw – Vipers 4th...
