Wow, September went by pretty darn fast. I can't believe that it's been over a month since I wrote about Merry Mary, who by the way, is having a great time in Guatamala and I'm sure she is making all around her happy.
September is a big month for Shelley and Me. We both give up a bunch of our free time in support of the Boy Scouts here in San Diego. In particular we are part of a group that put on a Mountain Man Rendezvous for the Varsity Scouts. These are guys from 14-18. Here is a picture of our staff. See if you can spot Shelley and Me!
The boys that come to this weekend activity get to do a bunch of the things that Mountain Men did from 1820-1840. They shoot blackpowder guns, throw tomahawks and knives, shoot arrows, run, compete, eat too much, and have a heck of a good time. Here are a few more photos to give you the idea.
If you want to see the entire website on this activity go here: www.VarsityRendezvous.com
This years photos and stuff will not be up for awhile, but you get the idea from last years website.
Why do we do this? Well it is fun. But I believe that we all need to give back to those organizations that have done a lot to make us who we are. Whether its a religion, professional organization or youth organization. Give back. The rewards are tremendous.
