2011 Territorial Rendezvous - October 6 thru 9, 2011
The Northeast Region, Colonials Territorial Rendevous held at the Penn-Del Royal Ranger Camp in Honey Grove, PA, on October 6-9, was nothing short of spectacular. The weather was absolutely gorgeous for the near 300 partipants who attended the Frontiersmen Camping Fellowship event. The view of 110 shelters seen by those traveling along Route 850 was a site that made passerbys look twice. The glow of the candlelight from within the shelters during the night was a sereen picture. The residents of the Honey Grove area are used to seeing rain when the Royal Rangers come to their camp, but not this time. The weather couldn't have been more perfect for this event and for those that attended all the way from Maine down Viginia.
Our guest speaker was National FCF President, Paul "Grey Owl" Walters, who hails from the Penn-Del District in the Northeast Region. His messages were very succint and uplifting and the worship team was top notch. There was plenty to do at the Rendezvous, including competitions, trading, fellowship and let's not forget some of the best cooking you'll every come across. Our very own Herman "Happy Guy" Geesaman was presented the Outstanding FCF Service Award, which was presented by the National FCF President. Paul "Grey Owl" Walters and Vice-president, Ted "Oak" Schmidt. Happy Guy is from the George Washington Chapter of the FCF.
Eleven candidates attained the Wilderness level of the FCF having successfully passed their testing and completed the overnight vigil during the Rendezvous. Two of the candidates were from the George Washington Chapter; Jess "Grey Eagle" Arnold and Philip "Word Speaker" Sproull. Philip Sproull was also elected as the Territorial Scout and will represent all Young Bucks for the next two years. Congratulations are extended to both Jess and Philip.
We had approximately 80 FCFer's from the George Washington Chapter attend the Rendezvous. If you didn't attend the Territoroal Rendezvous you missed one of the best. Hope to see you at the Spring Trace on April 20-22, 2012. In the meantime, be sure to get your Trapper Brigade points in to Kelvin "Levi" Pier.
