The Environmental Team of Subcamp 16 included Jack Keene of (Chief Pigman for SC16) of Dallas, TX, Larry Abraham of Austin, TX (our able artistic consultant),Gary Uhlenhaker of Corpus Christi, TX (the man with the gas mask), and Robert Bozwell (costume consultant) of Gatesville, TX.
|What could cause these Scouts to line up so patiently? Well it is the Great Electric Pig Show. Not exactly the Odyssey of the Law but we saw more Scouts than many other Scouters as the Scouts brought their food waste to the Pig for two feeding times each day.|
What is the Great Electric Pig? Well, it's a voracious garbage disposal that took on all that the Scouts could dish out. Each subcamp had two units for handling the leftovers. One was named Deedee and the other was named Arnold.
Arnold is shown here under the control of Scouter Bob Bozwell.
Tim the Toolman would have been proud of these units ... better than the Binford 3000. :)
Well, it was not all serious in Subcamp 16 as I am seen here modeling the latest in Environmental Control gear prior to our Subcamp Staff Luau night meal.
What was on the menu? Roast Pig of course!
Scouts had a chance to collect a souvenir wooden nickel to remind them that cleaning up was part of the job.
Random acts of cleanliness were occasionally observed as Scouts even picked up stuff that they didn't leave.
