Allow me to take a few moments to mark the 18th Anniverary of
that Great Watershed (or is that Watercloset?) event in the
history of Scouting known as Inter-Expo '86!
Held at the once-peaceful Olympiapark in Munich this event was
single handedly responsible for extending the cold war another 4
years, the end of Falco's career, and the friendly-fire deaths of
several innocent panes of plexiglass.
Not to mention it was the moment when I first met a number of people
who despite their desperate attempts to deny everything, would end
up playing vital roles in global events that would scar a tierheim
and its staff and a herd of cows for generations to come. Tom &
Karen "What financial loss?" Slavieck, Dave and Betty "What trading
post mark up?" Perry, Tim "What loose change"? Perry,
James "Computers are the future!" Manuel, Todd "How do I plug this
slide projector in" Allen, and last and certainly not least General
EB "It's a great day to fire howitzers at Cub Scouts" Leedy.
All (ok well not ALL) kidding aside, it is amazing to think that we
all met on that fateful weekend. So as to paraphrase the OA..
Pause... and look you back on EXPO! So raise a dontation ..err. I
mean a toast with Coca Cola and celebrate 18 years of Freindship,
fellowship and combined deniablity!
