A few bits of trivia:
- The top 7 troops entered the Scoutmaster dessert competition, worth 25 points.
- The top 4 troops registered early enough to get 10 bonus points.
- Less than 5 points separated 3, 4, and 5th place. If the 5th place team had registered early, they would have taken 3rd.
- Tomahawks had a 2-way tie for first place. One of those patrols earned a blue bead for that event, the other a yellow. The trophy was awarded based on that bead.
- First Aid had a 4-way tie for first place, and all 4 of those patrols earned a blue bead. The trophy was awarded based on spirit beads for ALL events.
- The top 3 troops had 3 of the 4 highest campsite inspections. One of these (T408) had a PERFECT campsite inspection.
- Two patrols skipped 2 events each. Six patrols skipped 1 event each. 4 of those 10 skipped events were from ONE troop. Those zeros were averaged in to get the Troop averages.
