|Description: 2008 was attended by approximately 115 past
and present Scouts returning to Cedar Valley. Murl White served as our chairman
for the event. The weather was fantastic throughout the weekend. Being our
sixth year of hosting a homecoming, we redesigned the momentoe patch for the
weekend to be very closely inspired by the original Pine Trail Reservation
shield patches originally designed by camp director Jack Roy. The dates tied
the opening of the camp in 1968 with the year 2008. In addition, the scroll
across the bottom recognized that the end of 2007 marked the completion of
forty years of camping at the "new" Cedar Valley, Pine Trail
We again had full run of the camp with numerious folks hiking all parts of the camp. A work crew, removed several trees back of the firebowl to once again open up the beautiful view of Lake The, and the traditional sunsets that backdropped our campfires in the old days. The shotgun and rifle ranges were open as was the original archery range. Several members played in our 6th, "Cedar Valley Open" golf tournement. Saturday we hosted our second silent auction to raise money for Scout camperships to help Scouts in our area to attend scout camp, raising almost $500. Finally Saturday night, our wrap-up campfire featured several great skits including a first ever weather quirk hereafter referred to as the "Great Gravy Storm of 2008".
