Pooh's Challenge 1: The Results
Yesterday's competition for the glory of beating Pooh was a bit confusing. Due to the fact that NO LEADERS showed up the game of horseshoes resulted in David Meade, a CIT, and Shawn Kohlhaas, Kitchen Staff, played. Shawn claims victory but David managed one ringer. Luckily, no one was injured. We hope that some Leaders will show up today and show us their archery skills.

Results of Are You Smarter Than a Scout?
Yesterday at approximately 4:30pm a meeting of the minds was held in the Dining Hall in the academic competition of Are You Smarter Than a Scout? The results may shock you, but the winner was Jerry Sellers of Troop 212. His intelligence and knowledge has astounded us all.

History of the Rock (Pt. 2)
The resort survived the American Civil War and continued to draw Virginia's elite. It changed owners several times until, in 1919, it was purchased by Fred Glaize, Sr. and Lee Herrellin who tore down several buildings and the original wing of the hotel. The resort continued to lose business until 1944 when the Glaize Family sold the resort to the Shenandoah Area Council.
