DECATHLON CHAMPIONS NAMED

Fierce competition was the trademark of yesterday's first annual Wacky Decathlon. Though the fight for first ended early, a battle for second came down to the very last event.

Eventual champs Lyle Millard and Chris Macionski won three of the six competitions held including the Balloon Relay, the Balloon Stomp, and the Bozo Game.

The real excitement of the event came in the Card in the Box Event. This final event provided the Donohue brothers with the points needed to take second place over third place teams of Roger Horn/John Howey and Doug Seman/Scott Fults.

The final standings were as follows:

Place Team Score
1 M&M's 38
2 Donohue/Donohue 18
3 (tie) Horn/Howey 15
3 (tie) Seman/Fults 15
5 Milon/Rose 13
6 Bollman/Wilson 9

TROOP 842 DOMINATES SOCCER TEAM

Troop 842 known for its tradition leading attendance at Winter Camp, made up all but one position on the Fults team during the soccer game. Chapter Chief Douglas Seman joined this 842 team and provided his talents as goalie.

The opposing team led by Lyle Millard, dominated play during the first period, but failed to score.

After a change in strategy during the last period, Scott Fults scored the only goal of the game to bring victory to his troopmates.

DOWNRIVER SERVES

Once again, members of the chapter have put their talents to work by doing a service project for D-A. The chapter Demolition crew reported to Ranger Dave Morosky this morning for the project. The task involved demolishing an old barn on the Fishcorn estate next to camp. Using sledge hammers and crow bars the workers began at 10:00 am. Much of the Fishcorn property is in the process of being donated to the camp.

SAYING FOR THE DAY

GASTRONOMIC DELIGHTS

Members consumed four large meals yesterday in the Winter Camp tradition of food excess. 5267 calories were presented to each hungry Arrowman.

The Caste Breakfast brought dissention between the classes. While the upper class ate with fine china, the lower caste groveled over their meager fare like swine. As usual, Mike Osvath was a member of the lower class.

Members were paired-off for the synchronized lunch. They imitated the actions of their partner while feeding. The two Donohue brothers, with their collective weight in excess of a 1/4 ton, were particularly amusing.

The dining highlight of the weekette was the Anniversary Banquet. Winter Camp participants and guests feasted on nearly 2500 calories of fine food during this repast.

The theater snack gave members a chance to experience a movie Winter Camp style. Unfortunately, ushers had to attend to two broken pop bottles and two spilled $3.00 tubs of popcorn.

WINTER CAMP TRIVIA

The single food item to be in attendance for the greatest tenure of Winter Camps is a small bottle of cayenne pepper, first brought to Winter Camp III. This cayenne pepper supply is expected to be depleted by Winter Camp CXXIV.

Only one event has been held at each Winter Camp, which is the Blind Hike. The only meal to find its way on the menu for the past 10 years is the pizza party. Tonight's Caveman Dinner dates back to Winter Camp II.
