DAY 1: 3:30 PM - Troop 31 & Parents - We finally made it into Pittsburgh! On our way down we ate lunch at a McDonalds near Pittsburgh. Now we are settling into camp and reviewing the plan for the rest of the week! - Konrad O.
DAY 2: Well after a slight change of plans, the Troop was able not only to tour the Falling Water house (see photo) but we had the opportunity to tour a second Frank Lloyd Wright house called Kentuck Knob house nearby in the PA Laurel Highlands. Sun is out temperature rising and spirits are high. Off to Laurel Caverns in the afternoon. Mr. H.
DAY 3: Troop 31 hosted by Laurel Highlands Council of Greater Pittsburgh for Historical Flag Ceremony. Group Photos in front of the Scout offices and in front of the Liberty Bell replica.
DAY 4: Our Scouts visited Heinz Field, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers, this morning. Sitting with a bird's eye view from the Press Box, they are primed and ready to be press writers for next Steelers game. And, if that doesn't work out for them, they always have the upper deck bleacher seats to view the game! It looks a little chillier outside - glad everyone brought hats. The last photo is a view of Heinz field and the city of Pittsburgh in the background. What a great stadium, tour and view of the Steel City!
On to PNC Park for the PIttsburgh Pirates baseball game against the Chicago Cubs @12:35 PM. Both teams bring a (1-1) record into today's game.
The first inning ... just in time for the first pitch. "Danny! Open your eyes ... the ball is coming right at you!" ...everyone's enjoying the game in the afternoon sun.
The boys made it on the JumboTron dancing to Footloose! Kevin is the Pirates #1 Cheerleader today! They're losing 3-2 in the top of the 9th. Can they pull it out? Nope. They lost 3-2. Everyone still had FUN!
DAY 5: Friday Morning - Scouts and leaders are preparing for the return trip back to Rochester. The goal is to be on the road by 9:30AM. When they stop for lunch just south of Erie, Mr. H. will email Mrs. B. and we will get a communication out to the Troop's Mailing List with arrival details. The leaders will be dropping all the boys off at their respective homes when they get back into town. The drivers will be contacting parents as they get closer.
One last photo at Camp Guyasuta in Pittsburgh, PA. We hope you enjoyed sharing this photojournalistic Spring Break 2013 experience with the troop.
