“Shortly after the formation of Troop 80, when a group of doctors generously offered some property out Preston Road to be used as a campsite, a contest was held to decide on a name for this rugged but thoroughly appreciated acreage. The winner was Miles Julian and the name chosen was Camp BSOATE (Boy Scouts of America Troop Eighty).
One night when the patrols gathered around the campfire, one hungry boy stuck his can of beans in the fire. The can exploded! Another time, one boy made apple pie but when they got ready to eat, it was discovered he had used soap powder instead of flour. On a trip to the Brazos River, one boy found a rattlesnake in his bedroll. On a White Rock Camporee, one patrol wanted to be close to the road. When Scoutmaster Saunders went to check on the boys, he found their tent had been stolen without waking them.”
