|Our February activity was to attend the district Winterall at LeRoy Oaks Forest Preserve. Here are a view pictures from that event.|
|Foil dinners made for quick cleanup.|
|Scoutmaster Dale Blotter passes the foil dinners to Nick Del Muro and Cameron Seay (this was the first campout for both boys.)|
|Cheyne Heaton dressed in the latest Russian military surplus. It was Cheyne's first campout also. Evening temperature was around 20 F.|
|Nick Del Muro.|
|Yours truly. I enjoyed hot chocolate from the thermos my daughter Cora bought me for Christmas.|
|Joseph Larson. His first campout with braces. Lookin' good, Joseph!|
|Zach Tritsch made an easy chair out of a snow ball. Brrrr!|
|Crazy Zach in his chair.|
|The better looking half of the Winterall staff.|
|Preparing to make dessert for the cooking contest.|
|Chocolate pudding cake with marshmallows.|
|Premeasured ingredients in plastic bags makes for easy work. The cake was good. Nice job, Dale.|
|Unknown scout - not one of ours - tries in vain to dry socks and boots. A note to moms: don't send your boys out on a winter outing with cotton socks and poor boots.|
|Dale Blotter is in the sled for the traditional sled race. Joseph Larson and Kirk Gray strategize.|
|And they're off!|
|We didn't do so well in this race. That's us rounding a tree in last place.|
|We had better luck in subsequent heats. When it was all said and done, we got a ribbon for third place.|
|Chris Reynolds and Robbie Blotter.|
