Pooh's Archery Challenge
In an exciting challenge, Pooh was defeated by John McConnell from Troop 427. John obtained a top score of 47 out of 50 to Pooh's 44. The rest of the challengers were all from Troop 212. Their results were Sid Barteau (44), David Perdue (44), Tom Routhier (43), Charles Kim (42), and Jerry Sellers (self-proclaimed honorable mention).
In the “shoot the orange” challenge another Troop 212 leader, Doug Gardner won. Congratulations and thanks to all for a great time. We hope to see you today at 3 pm for the golf challenge in front of the Trading Post.

The Main Hotel was located on the Parking Lot of Camp Rock Enon. Lumber from the old hotel was used to build Buffalo Lodge.  Rock Enon Springs had a station along the Winchester and Western Railroad until the 1930s, when the railroad was shortened to Gore.

One of the most famous guests was John Phillip Sousa, the composer of many marches like “Stars and Stripes Forever.”

If you would like to see what Rock Enon Springs Resort might have looked like turn left on Back Creek Road and go to Capon Springs Resort which is still in business today.
