Father-Son Camp Out

The 5th annual Father/Son camp out at Camp MACOBA is over and there was a pretty good turnout.

Most of Friday afternoon was spent setting everything up, and then some cooking and hanging out around the fire.

On Saturday morning everyone woke up to near freezing temperatures, clear skies, and calm winds. This later proved to be the recipe for a great day!

I arrived after breakfast and the groups had already started their rounds. There were three different groups: the trail, missions, and the events. Sam Kelly was busy with many things one which was clearing off all the trails. I drove up to the top field where the events were held. Chris Wilson was manning the snack booth and informed me that we had 100 participants this year! I went around taking some pictures of the events first. There was an archery shoot, air rifle, hatchet throw, slingshot, and finally blow darts.

Speaking of that last event, Chris Wilson had evidently done this before as he was pegging the bulls-eye.

There was a missionary from Iraq who had some stories to tell and held the boys attention.

Everything finished up around noontime, a little earlier than in years past due to some fall festivals and other things going on. All in all things went well and we look forward to this event again next year.
