Dads and Scouts of the Park Ride Winnebago Nation made their annual pilgrimage to Camp Duncan over Super bowl weekend. With the camp’s main winter attraction being an incredible but snow-less sled hill, Nation Chief Matt Hachigian partnered with Matt Adams and Mike Charlie of the Chippewa tribe to pull-off a fun-filled weekend for all of the kids. The boys participated in archery, leather crafts, the super slide, floor hockey, football, unusual object, and an epic game of Capture the Flag. The dads had a great time as well, grilling and smoking an endless quantity meats while gathering around the camp fire swapping stories.
Capture the Flag was the highlight of the camp out. The boys strategized and attacked. Others defended. Some were captured and many escaped. The battle raged for an hour and a half until the courageous and fast Owen Charley of the Chippewa tribe raced down the sled hill with the opponent’s flag. Victory for the Chippewa/Sauk team and fun for all.
The Sauk played a friendly game football after dinner. Eye of the Tiger played on the radio as Sauk dads displayed brief flashes of athletic ability that had not been seen in years. Unfortunately, one casualty of the game was Nation Chief Matt Hachigian who separated and bruised his shoulder on one spectacular play. I am happy to report that he caught the ball. I am happier to report that he is recovering nicely.
Despite no snow, dads and scouts had a great camp out.
