Camping in the snow is one of the things that Scouts from Minnesota can do each year, while Scouts in Florida can not. This weekend happened to be a mild winter weekend as far as the weather was concerned. In fact, it was almost too warm. The snow was begining to melt. But don't worry, it still got cold during the evening hours.

Of cousre, getting camp set up is the first piority upon arrival.

Sledding was a lot of fun down one of the hills in camp.

All right, who didn't put their stuff away where it should be?

Snowboarding down Bunker Hill was fun for a while.

Sunday morning we had to thaw out a few boots that where left outside.

Here is the crew that braved the Minnesota winter in 1996.

Nearly every year the Central Minnesota Council and Camp Ripley work to bring Scouts from across Minnesota together for the Ripley Rendezvous. Scouts are able to compete in many different programs testing their skills and knoledge, and have a lot of fun doing it all.

A group walk was just one of the many stations testing patrol teamwork.

Scouts were times on how fast they could cut through a log.

Sixteen Troop 68 members participated in the event this year.

This year's fall camporee was held at the Ann Lake Campground in Sand Dunes Park. Everyone had a lot of fun, even though there was a lot of walking involved.

A game of touch football is a great way to use some free time.

It was quite a group that went along on this activity.

First aid skills was one of the knoledge areas during the stations.

We don't get the chance to do this vary often but we did take time during one meeting to get a group photo taken. It this not a great looking group of guys?

Each year we have a Christmas party. We watch movies, and eat loads of pizzas and snacks, and drinks gallons of soda. We also have a gift exchange for those who wish to participate. It is a dirty job, but someone's got to do it.
