It was another fun filled night and morning of the annual Pathfinder Christmas Party and Lock-in. Otherwise known as the Road Rally. As in year's past, the rally started out with the delivery of poinsetta's and cookies to the shutins. The teams were back to the church and to grab their list, another tin of cookies, money, and other essentials for the run around Lincoln. During said time the few staff that remained started working on the scoring and video. Using the Eversnap application made it easier for the crew to grade the teams as they got to their respected stops. Unfortunatly this didn't help with the teams that didn't have a smart phone or good data uploads. This was a cause for delay as the evening progressed. Of course some of the traditional items were chosen this year as well as a couple of new ones. And every team at least got a good majority of the list accomplished.
The second part of the night was the movie with a pizza feed. This year the movie was titled "Home" as there weren't really any decent movies released this last year. Once the movie was done and the pizza mostly gone it was time to send everybody to bed. It was about one in the morning.
After the short night it was time for breakfast and a movie. The breakfast was french toast and the movie was "Christmas Lodge." During breakfast and the movie, as the kids were still waking up from their short amount of sleep, the restlessness was growing as this year's rally video was anticipated to know who was the winner this year. Finally the movie was over, breakfast cleaned up, and the kids gear was packed up. The rally video was ready to be played. The rally video this year started and ended with a Star Wars theme. Fitting as the new movie was released this year. The middle of the movie was filled with Christmas music selections with pictures and videos from the teams. Finally the winners were announced as the teams celebrated another fun filled year as they headed back home.
