Giving Back to the Council

Giving Back to the Council
This last week we participated in a scouting event.  It's one way we give back.  The Grand Teton Council Jamboral is a once every four years event.  This time, we acted as the official event photographers and helped with the publicity leading up to the event.

The weather was terrible and so we didn't get quite as many photos as we wanted.  Digital cameras don't like water that much and even though the ones we were using are supposed to be weather sealed, we didn't know for sure about the lenses.  It wasn't worth the risk for us.

The highlight of the event was Friday night when the Alex Boyé concert that was held.  There were at least 4000 concert goers and we found ourselves learning about concert photography.  Mr Boyé is an excellent singer but rather animated when he performs.  That means he gets blurry a lot.  We will post on the concert next week so stay tuned.

That night, and most of the next day, it rained almost continuously.  We got really wet.  We got some photos but some events were missed.  Other events didn't even happen because of the rain.  All in all, it was a good experience for us and for the boys.  Of course, as soon as we were packed up and on the road out, the sun came out.

We did it for free, and will be giving all the photos to the council, but it was fun and great to give back.  We love doing scouting and it makes us happy to help.
