At 2:00 we headed to the waterfront for some fun in the sun. Some of the boys headed for the waterslide (aka the Sequoyah Sidewinder) for a refreshing ride. The rest of the troop took to the water in kayaks or on paddle boards. Many of the Scouts took to it like the proverbial ducks to water and ranged far into the lake. At one point, several Scouts ganged up and attempted to corner the Scoutmaster with the malicious attempt to get his hair wet. Although there was some success on that front, the end result saw many Scouts soaked as well.

Following our boating adventure, everyone moved over to the swimming area for a refreshing swim and the chance at the diving board. The result was a mixture of diving, cannonballs, belly flops and some entries into the water that defy the ability to describe them. By the time we finished, everyone was ready for a good dinner and (hopefully) a good night's sleep.
The other event of the evening was the trip out to Adventure Valley. As this post is being written, the boys are just returning, covered in mud. The tale of their experience is a story for the morn.
More photos are available on the online photo gallery. Also, before I start to get calls and emails from concerned parents, the photo of the card game was staged. Just an example of how Scouts can react when a camera is pointed in their direction.
