Gavin, Charlie, and Matt join two Eagle scouts from Wilmette troops to present the flag at the New Trier Opening ceremony for the first football game against Loyola Academy, big rivals. Loyola and New Trier made special shirts just for this game to pump up the energy.
The first meeting of the year. The lower rank scouts who tend to go Makajawan as campers are busy cleaning the grime from Makajawan camp cooking gear.
