Our Pack's Winter Campout

Our Pack has a campout coming this weekend. We've got 75-100 people coming. I've been so busy working on the Pack's website, my Mom's website, I have barely had time to even think about this campout, let alone the impact it will have on our Pack.

For the last couple of years, we have had a Winter campout. It usually gets down around freezing (for us in Texas, that's COLD!), but we always have a good turnout. Since it is colder and the days are shorter, I've noticed a marked difference between this campout and our Fall and Spring campouts. Winter campout is usually a more somber feeling; not a much activity. The "Council Fire" is a more subdued event; more quiet.

Not this year. I've got a flag retirement ceremony planned, some religious items and a firestarting ceremony that should wake up the December night. Unfortunately, right now they are just concepts.

I've got less than 24 hours to come up with a full-hour program; I really didn't mean to wait until the last minute, but this week has been so distracting.

So instead of writing in this weblog, I should go work on my campout ceremony. Maybe things will look better tomorrow night.
