Ripley Rendezvous
March 30 - April 1, 1990
Once again the Central Minnesota Council and Camp Ripley teamed up to bring the Ripley Rendezvous to the Scouts of the council. It was pretty much the same agenda as past years, but that was all right. Everyone always has a good time at Ripley.

Memorabilia galore! 

How many Scouts can fit?

The tank is overrun with Boy Scouts.


Spring Camporee
April 20-22, 1990
The district had a spring get-together with sports featured as a theme. Troops competed in volleyball, tug of war, and several other activities. The highlight of the weekend for troop 68 was during the Saturday night campfire program when a state senator was on hand to present a new USA flag to the troop which best demonstrated the Scout Oath and Law, and they called Melrose Troop 68 forward! The Scouts definitely deserved a pat on the back that evening.

                       Our campsite.                                 Tug of War Competition.                          Volleyball was great!

Scout Expo
May 5, 1990
Troop 68 participated in the district's Scout Expo held in St. Cloud. Our booth theme was cinematography, and took up two booths. The local theater was kind enough to let us borrow posters for our display. Mel-TV 3 was very helpful by allowing us to use television equipment.

              Our cinematography booth.                    A cooking demonstration.                 An Order of the Arrow dance.

Summer Camp
July 15-21, 1990
Eighteen troop members attended a week long summer camp at Crow Wing Scout Reservation near Nevis, Minnesota. A lot of merit badges were earned and a lot of fun was had by all!

Order Of The Arrow Sectional Conclave
October 5-7, 1990
Four Troop 68 Scouts and their scoutmaster attended the sectional conclave. It was the first one ever attended by Scouts from Melrose. It was fun, informational, and interesting. This was the 75th anniversary of the Order Of The Arrow.

          National leadership was on hand.                   The trivia competition.                      The group from Troop 68.
