OK, I have to be honest, it did take more than 1 minute to actually DO this Scout’s Eagle Project. But we’ve managed to do something interesting. We managed to capture the entire project in a one-minute time-lapse video.
Traditionally, our Troop tries to plan in some service work during this campout. During this particular one, Reed Hunter, one of our then-Life Scouts, decided to re-build a wobbly staircase on the back of one of the cabins for his Eagle Project. It worked out perfectly because we had a great crew of Scouts and adults on hand to help with the project.
Our former Committee Chair, Dave Coupal, had the foresight to set up a video camera on a tripod with a time-lapse setting to capture the whole afternoon. Actually, my favorite part of the video is about halfway through when the boys come strolling through the frame to do a “Charlie’s Angels” pose with the power tools. Goofy guys!
But at the end, when you can actually see the staircase come together, it’s really cool to see. Congrats to Reed on the completion of a great Eagle Project.
