2019 Adventure Race – November Campout

Posted by David Hilgartner on November 12, 2019


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.


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.

Back by popular demand: Adventure Race, Holy Grail Style.

Due to overwhelming popularity, this November a Battle with the Bunny will return. In order to make this work, the troop needs the help of ALL the adults, specifically we are looking for a race coordinator. The race takes planning and support, starting in the July/August. Mr. Nash will guide you as you lead this adventure. You start by hand picking your Round Table of volunteers. Who will be your faithful assistant and keeper of your steed? Who will help with your Shrubery (Ni)? Who will help you guard the Castle of Aaaaargh? There is a lot of documentation with this adventure so you will not be creating it from scratch. If you would like to lead this adventure, please contact Mr. Nash.

Reminder for Race – Turn at First Entrance

Posted by webmaster on November 16, 2011

crown-jewels-logo-091411-smJust a quick reminder for folks coming to this weekend’s Adventure Race (Scouts and Webelos) to turn at the first entrance to Peaceful Valley, also known as the North Entrance. 

You’ll then make one right and one left, then wind around into Adventure Valley.  This is also the new Shooting Sports/Sporting Clays area.  Click Here for a Map of the way in.  Remember Peaceful Valley is about 10 miles south of Kiowa, near Elbert.

Parking will be tricky with all the folks who are coming, so try and keep down the number of vehicles you are bringing and know that we will probably park you in a fairly undeveloped field (don’t bring that sports car).  See you there.
