Camp Geiger Staff Alumni Dinner Recap

By Ben Shackelford, Runner Least Winging Black Hawk 

The 2013 Staff Reunion Dinner was held on October 5, 2013 at Camp Geiger with special recognition for the staff of 1965. With over 80 members in attendance, this event was a big success.

The afternoon began with open free shooting and a COPE tower experience. Current and previous staff members had the opportunity to zip line and even try their hand at five stand sporting clays. The evening continued with a friendly social hour before dinner, in which there was a slideshow with pictures of Camp and Camp Staff members throughout the years. All in attendance were treated to an excellent dinner of burgers, corn on the cob, baked potatoes, shrimp, and cheddar biscuits prepared by Brad Derr and his crew.

The Staff was honored to have both Bill Kent and Ken Paden speak about their experiences as members of the 1965 staff. They both had many memorable stories to share. When the evening drew to a close, there were a few final videos with clips of camp through the years. To close out the evening, everyone was given a patch to commemorate the event.
