Scout Troop 5 camped at DeGray Lake August 7-9. Staying at the
Ross-Rhodes Scout Reservation near Bismark, the Scouts and family members enjoyed water activities, cooked and had a lot of fun. Assistant
Scoutmasters Donnie Golden and his wife Jerrilynn provided their party barge for the weekend. Assistant Scoutmaster Ed Flagg provided his boat as did Assistant Scoutmaster Dr. Donald Sitzes. Eagle Scout Billy Lafferty brought his three Seadoo personal watercraft. Lots of tubing, riding and swimming were the highlights of the beautiful weekend. Leadership was provided by Senior Patrol Leader Hunter Mathis, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader Joshua Henley and Scoutmaster Karen Smith.
Assistant Scoutmaster Donnie Golden, his son Eagle Scout Andrew Golden and Assistant Scoutmaster Robert Wright manned the smoker and grill for suppers. The Scouts cooked breakfasts of omelets and French toast.
