Carl Doerfler was kind enough to host us at his home for a hands on lecture on his sword collection and about swords in general. The boys particularly enjoyed learning about which swords were good for swinging and which were good for stabbing people.

Friday night I was so proud of the boys, they put up their tents, got out the cooking stuff and made dinner with only a bare minimum of help.
Saturday we started strong, but by 2:30pm they all lost their will to go on so I let them just do whatever events they wanted to.
Tomahawk throwing (Zach and Matthew our Totin Chip holders)
Rope Bridge, dirt crawl and plank bridge and stretcher carry obstacle course
Rock Wall Climb
String Burn (Starting a fire)
Buck Saw Competition (The boys actually got 2nd place out of all the 11 year olds for this one!)
