2019 Adventure Race – November Campout

Posted by David Hilgartner on November 12, 2019

2019 ADVENTURE RACE

the 2019 Adventure Race is upon us!

Calling all Knights and Men-at-Arms! The annual Troop 16 Adventure Race is on! The theme this year, back by popular demand, is Monty Python’s Quest for the Holy Grail. Join us in this life-sized race through over a dozen challenges scattered around Peaceful Valley as you seek enough power to get past the Black Knight, defeat the Killer Rabbit, and claim the Grail. You will enjoy the Royal Feast afterwards.

Contact your Camp Host, Dave Hilgartner, with questions about the campout, or your Gamemaster, Rob Beyerly, with questions about what the heck a Grail is.

Parents, please consider coming out for the weekend or just for the day on Saturday. We need lots of help to pull it off. Peaceful Valley is located at Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch, North Elbert Road, Elbert, CO.

SIGN UP HERE:  https://bsa16.trooptrack.com/plan/events/1084742

RSVP by Friday, Nov 8.

We meet at the PUMC church parking lot at 4 pm on 11/15/19.  As always, please bring your dinner for Friday.
