The Sheepdogs: Aug. 24/11

This up-and-coming bunch of hirsute rockers (who were most recently on the cover of the Rolling Stone!) were the headliner/closing act of some event at the Marina Park: Superior Youth Festival or somesuch.

I edged closer & closer to the stage until I got these photos and my ears rang.

Boys 1 Program Mtg & Camper Arrival: Aug. 1/11

Manitoba Pioneer Camp

Some of the lighter camp staff or LITs had a toss in the Boys Camp Blanket o' Love.

The Camper Welcome theme was a sort of Blue Man Group rhythm things without the Blue (or the rhythm).

Aliens vs Astronauts vs Robots: Aug. 4/11

The Astronauts made the Robots to destroy the Aliens who are able to destroy the Aliens. However, the Astronauts rebelled and so the Astronauts were out to destroy the Robots.

Think Paper Rock Scissors with lots of kids and costumes.

MPC: Viking Meal in the Field: Aug. 6/11


Vikings burst in and escorted us to the playing field.

Apparently Vikings eat their salad with their hands.

He was planning on winner the Golden Bouncer Award
and so he bounced this meal, too.

Temp tests his home-made mail.

Sunday, Aug. 7 @ MPC, Boys Camp 1, 2011


In Chapel I re-enacted the Denethor eating like a pig scene
of The Return of the King.
(I also led singing.)

Chapel concluded at the lake with
The Return of the Prodigal Miagi.

During afternoon Clubs I ran "Puzzles With Peps".

Silver paid a visit.
