Family Camp 2000

Family Camp was held at the Vermont Grange Center in Brookfield again this year.  It was held July 21st thru 23rd, and I know I needed the break after the Youth Conference & just before Youth Weekend.

Some of the weekend activities were: Phase 10, Cribbage, Croquet, Checkers & Horseshoe tournaments.  Judging for the Home Ec projects was on Saturday.   There was also a dance on Saturday night.  They server over 120 for lunch on Saturday, not all stayed the night, but it was a very good turnout for Family Camp this year.

Awards were announced on Sunday & I was very pleased when my afghan entry finished first.  But how fair is this? My afghan gets to go to National Session in California while I stay home.
