Horseshoes Challenge
Troop 36 had an impressive showing of sportsmanship as they joined Pooh for the Horseshoe Challenge. But alas the team of Garith & Greg beat the team of Rich and Pooh. Although Pooh lost he was grateful for the fun time and congratulates Troop 36 on a job well done.

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.

Today's Pooh Challenge: Archery
Today the brave of heart can meet with our fearless camp director in an attempt to best him with the bow and arrow. Meet at the Archery Range at 1 pm if you are courageous enough to accept the challenge!
