It dawned on me today that though I have mentioned a lot about the improvements to camp that have
been done this fall and winter I still haven’t posted any pictures on the blog. So if you will look
up to the corner of this post you will notice some really cool shots of our new cabin, Greybeard
(Can’t you just picture Will Byrd or Bubba duck hanging out on the front porch?) Then I have some
great pictures of Spencer’s Green (and the rock at Spencer’s green which is really cool). Our plan
is to build a huge, multi-sided climbing wall right behind the rock so the folks waiting to climb
can hang out on it. Spencer’s Green actually has another little field above it (which has a
fantastic view of the southernmost mountains in Black Mountain). Then there is the new archery
range and pavilion. No longer will archery have to stop when the rains come. Oh no, they will be
able to continue the shooting while remaining nice and dry. The range is actually extended as well!
Then we have a new riflery range cleared and ready to build a new pavilion. Strangely enough It
looks almost exactly like the old riflery range at this point though I am sure a new pavilion will
change that because the old one was starting to show its age. We have done some other stuff as
well: Bobby made a cool Japanese style bridge over on the other side of the lake, he removed all of
the rocks and planted new grass in front of the Mike, and we are adding another brand new walk-in
freezer to our kitchen which will be chock full of chicken patties for you when you get here.
Your fearless leader!
