Hiwassee River 7/31/15

This was Troop 3’s second time going to Hiwassee, and my first time doing the whitewater school. Overall the instructors were very good and they helped me pick up a new skill called “bracing” which prevented 5 capsizes for my canoe.

On Saturday night we played a fun game of capture the flag. we also had the night entertainment, which was basically Buckethead ( an instructor) playing songs from old movies and having us guess what it was.

As for the new scouts, they did their own activities with the adults while we were at whitewater school. On the second day the actually were with us, but they did the river trip in funyaks.

After the river trip we dried off and went to have a fast food stop for dinner ( choice of subway or taco bell). then we loaded up and went home from our awesome river trip.
