Venturing Crew 75 vent to BSA Winterfest in Gatliinburg, TN with an aim to compete against the thousands of youth and took home first place across several categories.
Winterfest is an exciting, fun-filled, and competitive event for Explorers, Venturers, Sea Scouts & older Scouts BSA troops. Winterfest is an action-packed 2-day event filled with competitions, aquatic and STEM events, shooting sports, climbing, sports tournaments and more! Many events are related to various career fields such as Fire Service, Law Enforcement, and EMS.
The youth of the crew participated in several events, and this is the result of those activities:
First place Squeeze Box – Yannick A. She Managed to squeeze out the competition with 5.5 inches. The other Crew member (from another council) we wish him a quick recovery!
First Place went to our resident dead eye – Regan T. who scored first place at the Outdoor Range event of Rifle. His grouping was so close that you couldn’t tell he was shooting .22’s. So when we look at starving with the next Apocalypse, we’re set.
First Place was sternly in place for the Anchor Dive – it went to our unsinkable Kara K. who paddled across the length of the Olympic sized pool and then ran the Anchor back after diving down 12 feet to pull it up. It was almost a flawless performance.
First Place saved the day in the Lifeguard Relay – it also went to our resident Lifeguard Kara K. who did it so fast, by the time we had the camera focused, she was done. With Kara around I am positive that you won’t drown!
Second Place for the Rubber Ducky Regatta went to Kara K. who paddled across the water like, well a duck. She was Quacking us up teaching everyone what the rules were. We are encouraged that the rest of the flock had something to shoot for.
