And the winner is . . .

Me! To my surprise and delight, I was named the winner of the Scoutmasters' Cookoff at Ransburg Scout Reservation's closing Campfire last night. The winning dish was my St. Davy's Trifecta. Our Ridge Commissioner admitted to me this morning that he'd never had asparagus before, he was afraid to try it. He thought my dish of leeks, asparagus, and bacon was "Awesome."

Marshall F. earned the Shepherd's Heart Award from the Camp Chaplain. Harrison C. earned his Woodsman rank in Firecrafter. Andrew and Jared were recognized for finishing COPE. And we left this morning with a lot of blue cards (Merit Badge records).
