The final post

For all those still reading my blog, this is my final post. Thanks to all for reading it, I really appreciate the positive feed back. I am not going to post any more pictures because 1) it takes to long and 2) they will all be shown at the reunion. I’m really glad that this all worked out, because I was worried at first that no one would read the blog. But, I am glad to be wrong, and I will see everyone at the graduation. Thanks to all.

Your Correspondent,

Matthew Bowden

It’s all over

Now, it’s all over, and I think there are some things to say.

First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Silva, for keeping this troop together, and doing all he could to make jamboree enjoyable for us all.

Second, I would like to thank Mr. Arnold, for keeping all of our records, and getting everything in line.

Third, I would like to thank Mr. Bowie, for making sure the troop had everything it needed, and keeping it all together.

Next, I would like to thank Eric Lissner, for being a good friend to us all, and helping make our experience enjoyable.

I’d also like to thank our troop carpenters, Mr. Klos and Mr. Carter, because without there help, we would not have such a good gateway, or have a solar charging station!

I’d like to thank Mrs. Hohn, for making sure we all got our patches and pins.

Mr. Hogate should also be thanked for being our troop fundraiser, because he was the main initiator for many fundraising events.

Finally, I would like to thank Mrs. McQueen, for doing all of the things that were out of sight, but didn’t go unnoticed.

And a huge thanks to everybody who made this trip possible!!!

Now some pictures:

Arena Show was Awesome

Nothing much to say besides that. I wrote an article on it for the Register, and I will try to get copies of them and post them later, but this is a picture post mainly. So, here goes:

Sorry if there are any bad pictures, I didn’t get the chance to edit them. Thanks for reading.
