Stephen F. Austin State Park

This was the first time Troop 505 camped at Stephen F. Austin State Park since I joined the troop 5 years ago. We were able to secure 3 campsites together and close to the rest rooms, thanks to Mr. Campodonico having gone to the park earlier in the day. The troop went on a 5 mile hike in the morning and played 9 or 18 holes of golf in the afternoon. The course was in great shape. We seemed to lose a lot of balls in the one large gorge that traversed the golf course. We played a best ball scramble format, which made play a lot faster. The foursome of Mr. Lauten, Trevor L., Juan A., and Daniel C. were attacked by bees at the 8th hole. There were a lot of great shots, bad shots and ricochets during the day. At campfire that night, all the foursomes handed out awards for their golf play. On Sunday morning we had a nine-hole putting tournament, closest to the pin contest and a Scout's Own service. The return trip to the scout house took less than an hour.
