SC Royal Rangers, adventurers, explorers, thrill seekers, etc. etc…
Pow Wow 2019 is quickly approaching and that means it’s time to break out the tents, hiking boots, treasure maps, and warmup the boats! (At the current rate of rainfall, you may need a boat to get to River Oaks!!!)
Join us for a Spirit filled weekend full of games, water sports, evening worship, and of course nightly pageants presented by our Possum Kingdom playhouse! This year’s theme will be centered around a cast of unsuspecting travelers who embark on a harmless 3 hour boat tour, but they get shipwrecked and end up stranded on the Tropical Island known as Possum Kingdom. As they try to find their way off the island they will stumble upon a lost treasure. They discover that “treasure” can mean different things to different people, and some treasures are more important than others. What treasure are you chasing in YOUR daily life? The Bible tells us in Matthew 6:21 that “Where your Treasure is, there will your heart be also.” So bring your shovels, backpacks, compasses, and whatever else you’ll need, as we try to unearth a real treasure and self examine our hearts and lives! It all happens at River Oaks Retreat Center aka Possum Kingdom, May 17-19.
2019 South Carolina Royal Rangers District Derby Results
The new 6 lane aluminum track made its debut at the 33rd annual South Carolina Royal Ranger District Derby Race. By all accounts it was a great addition to our annual derby. We had 67 competitors this year which was down a bit from last year, but we completed racing and the trophy presentation in just over an hour and a half. All indications are the derby was a great success enjoyed by all who were in attendance. If you missed it make sure you are in attendance for a special 2020 race event with others in our region.
The Ranger Kids Overnighter was a great success! Commander Charity and her ‘Hobbit’ friends had lots of neat events, while Commander Jesse presented the Gospel with a “Lord of the Rings” themed skit. Everyone went home with something special, a sack with some gems, a walking stick, and more. Tell all your friends what they’ve missed out on and be sure that they plan to attend next year’s event!
