Cheatham Annex&Busch Garden Trip Historian Report

IMG_1465By James Y. (Scorpion Patrol Historian)

On June 12th, on a Friday afternoon, we all gathered around Saint Francis Church to prepare to leave. We packed up our belongings into the cars. Then, at around 5:30 PM, we headed out for a long three hour drive.
Three hours later, we arrived at Cheatham Annex, a navy base. It was around 9:00 PM at that time. Everyone parked in a paved lot, and our campground was a wide field of grass next to a large dining fly over some tables. We all unpacked and set up our tents. Some scouts goofed off past 12:00 AM until they were finally ordered to go to sleep, and everyone could try to get a good night’s rest.

On Saturday, May 2, 2015, I went to the Pirate Festival in Lake Fairfax Park for community service at 9:30 AM in the morning. There were many activities, such as a climbing rope, singing, tattoos, treasure hunts, slides, and boat rides! I originally thought I got the “lamest” station of all, “Does it Sink or Float?” I was supposed to teach the little kids how to make boats float out of clay, and let them see if some toys could float.
