CMT was held at the Girl Scout Camp in Longview, WA. The first couple of days were beautiful and sunny. Then the Gateway team experienced the rainy, temperamental spring weather of the Pacific Northwest, but they endured and had fun meeting members from around the country and different SCA programs. The Gateway team made their mark at this year’s CMT by winning several awards. John won an Excellence Award for “Best Clean Plate”; Mason was the Ninja champion; Susan won an Excellence Award for a card game; and Bobby made it to the top 10 of several team building games and won Excellent All Around. Among the trainings and workshops that the CMs attended were Leave No Trace, Wilderness First Aid, and the Northeast Woodlands Chainsaw training (NEWT). Team Gateway was excited about chainsaw training because this season they’ll be felling a variety of trees-tree of heaven (Ailanthus altissima), mimosa (Albizia julibrissin) and pine trees (Pinus thunbergii)! Timber!
