BTLN UPDATE - MAYLONG 2015
Maylong 2015 was special for many reasons! For starters, by my calculations it was the 35th Maylong Campout for Btln 3739! Secondly, I am sure we set a record for combined distance traveled to attend a Maylong! Ryley flew home from Florida for the Maylong! A Btln Salute for Ryley! We also had Ryley's dad Rick, Tyler, Derrick, Jake, Travis and the Pods! We actually had about 35 guys on Treadmill this year! I also should mention, that for the first time we had hot shaves on the beach! Jake was giving hot shaves to anyone that wanted one! I missed out this year, but I am hoping that Jake and his razor's will be making a return to the Maylong in the future!
This year we also had the tenth annual Maylong Cribbage Tourney! There were four two-time Champions before this year and now, Devin has become the fifth two-time Champion! Devin and Noah defeated Abe and Rick (2-0) in the final to claim the Cribbage Trophy! Congrats to Devin and Noah!
The Maylong is also the traditional end to the Memory Work competition. This year Jonathan, Noah, Ben and Jakob completed the Memory Work at the Maylong! For Jakob, it was his first time finishing the Memory Work! Congrats Jakob! Welcome to the world of gentlemen!
The Maylong Regatta is now in it's fourth year and has become one of the favourite events at the Maylong. This year, Riley and Phoenix's boat was first to make it to the bridge! Congrats to Riley and Phoenix! Noah was second and Lukas was third. Watching the guys chase their boats through the creek is awesome! I think we will be making some changes for next years Maylong Regatta! Can't wait!
