The Samboree took place on the high school campus.
116 rigs showed up to celebrate 235 years of freedom.
Between rain storms we played outdoor games.
The tractor rodeo was fun. The driver is blindfolded
and given silent instructions from his or her teammate.
"You're disqualified! You ran into the crowd."
"Oops! Was that the pylon I just ran over?"
We took a field trip to St. Gertrude's Museum in Cottonwood.
Upon arrival we were met by the curator and given a warm welcome.
Back on campus we played more games.
This game was tied in the last inning until Gordon hit a home run.
The Grangeville High School Choir entertained us one evening.
We honored our departed friends by releasing a baloon for each one.
Later, we held a patriotic theme parade. All of the participants dressed in red, white and blue.
Larry and Maxine opened the Good Sam store every day.
There were quite a few other vendors too.
The dutch oven cook-off was very popular this year.
There was enough food so that some lucky folks got second samples.
The military chapter demonstrated the proper way to fold the american flag.
A banquet concluded this year's Idaho Samboree.
