Hey Stephen I like the Camera Bug idea... Anita & I would come over for that. Way to go focus on your event !! I made contact with a woman who does both boy & girl scouting today at work. Hoping I hear from her soon..!! Thanks again to all the members who offer their opinions & great images both here and FB.
