2012 Winter Rendezvous

The 18th Annual Wapehani District Winter Rendezvous is history now. It was a great weekend that posed a lot of unexpected challenges. It was a beautiful day Friday afternoon when I headed out to Maumee Scout Reservation, but by evening, a chilly rain started coming down, encasing us in ice. We were expecting a record turnout -- some 520 people at the peak of the weekend. In the end, we had about 480, some of whom left early in order to get home safely. Others were stuck staying over Saturday night, and we wound up offering breakfast as an unscheduled meal this morning.Collapse )
