Subject: 1999 Old Threshers Heritage Camporee
Some of you may have heard of the Midwest Old Threshers Reunion held in
Mt. Pleasant, Iowa just prior to Labor Day each year. It has been going
for over 40 years and is an established celebration of agricultural
heritage and is attended by people from all over the world.
Eight years ago a group of Scouters decided to partner with the Old
Threshers Association to make use of the grounds (including museums,
trolley, log village and campgrounds) for a council camporree the weekend
prior to Memorial Day. The Camporree has grown to a regional event and
1998 attracted over 900 youth (including Cubs) and adults from Iowa,
Illinois and Missouri.
This years Camporee is scheduled for May 21, 22 & 23 ( you check in
PM or Saturday AM) and will be bigger and better. We've maintained the
gems of the past (Electric Trolley Rides, Train Rides, Log Village, Steam
Engines, and Working House Demonstrations) with some more current items
interest such as an Internet Workshop for exporing the great amount of
Scouting related information on the WEB, Radio-Controlled Model
Pinowood Derby Run-off and more. Enjoy Patch Trading, Evening Song
Swap Meet, Dunk Tank and more.
Come with your troop for the weekend, your pack or den for the day or as
family for the weekend or day. There are spacious campground
accommodations with modern bathrooms (hot showers) and RV hookups.
