Yawgoog Re-Cap

Posted by jditomasso on Jul 21 2019 - 7:45am

We had another strong year at Yawgoog!!.  We once again earned more merit badges than any other Troop at Camp Medicine Bow, and won both the Bake-Off and the Swim Carnival.  Unfortunately, the Troop tournament this year was not frisbee, so we sadly did not defend our tournament crown.  A good time was had by all!!
