SNRE Campfire is coming...

This coming Friday, October 12, is the SNRE Campfire. This will be the 106th* celebration of the school out in Saginaw Forest, ever since the celebration of "field days" began in 1906.

In preparation for the event, I cleaned up the base of the fire-pit (removing the dirt and grass that had built up over the years),

Cleaned fire pit

had a lot of the ash wood and pine wood that was lying around brought in,

Hauled wood and chopped wood

carried over a log for the cross-cut saw competition,

Carried over a pine log

and chopped wood for the campfire.

Chopped wood

The deliveries of straw bales, pumpkins, event tent & tables, port-a-johns, and trash cans are due to come later in the week.

* I am making the assumption that the School of Forestry continued the tradition during the US involvement in the two World Wars (i.e., 1917-1918 and 1941-1945).
