BLAKESLEE, PA- Venture Crew 276 attended Rendezvous at Camp Acahela in Blakeslee, Pennsylvania.  The Doctor Who theme was seen throughout all of the activities that happened the entire weekend.  These activities included building a sonic screwdriver- Dr Who’s primary ubiquitous tool, painting a Tardis -the phonebooth shaped time machine, forging an arrow head out of steel, tin molding, rocketry, handgun and rifle shooting and working with a giant Tesla coil-an electrical, high-frequency transformer.  Another activity the scouts enjoyed was action archery where the scouts were able to shoot the adipose-an alien from a Doctor Who episode.  By the end of the weekend Crew 276 scouts had met local crews from this area and others from as far away as Virginia. 

Crew Secretary Stephen Rozek said, “This was my first time going to Rendezvous and it was a blast. I enjoyed all the activities and all classes that participated in.  My favorite class was Rifle Shooting where I got to shoot a Ruger, a Mossburg and a Thompson aka Tommy Gun.  My favorite activity was playing Ga Ga ball.  I had a great time with my crew and the new friends I made.”

Chris Rozek, Crew Vice President of Program said, “My favorite part of the trip was the fishing with an NFL star, Action Archery and the Knife Throwing event.  This trip was amazing and I learned a lot while having fun.  I also met really cool people from Virginia, which helped make this trip an incredible experience!”
