Scouts from Brunswick race to safely build and light a fire during one Camporee activity.

Windsor — Nearly 200 Boy Scouts from Kennebec, Somerset, Franklin, Knox, Lincoln, Sagadahoc and Cumberland counties got hooked on a weekend of fun at the Windsor Fairgrounds, where they held the Fishermen's Rendezvous Fall Camporee.

The event, organized by Warren Troop 254, included fishing-themed activities such as Hypodermic Fire Building, Casting/Fishing (on land), Obstacle Course, Knot-tying, Bucket Fill, Anchor Toss, Trap Run, Cribs: Sailor Edition (Show how your campsite is safe and matches our theme.), Fisherman’s Grub challenge (You cook it, we try it, it’s up to you what you make.), and the Nautical Ball campfire.

Leaders from around the district joined with host Troop 254 to plan and organize the event. "This took several months to plan," said Troop 254 Senior Patrol Leader Nick Cole. "We were really happy to host the Fishermen's Rendezvous, but it couldn't have happened without a lot of work from everyone."
