Mike and I were out at Boxwell tonight to do site visits for the commissioner staff and to attend the OA cracker barrel. A situation happened that still has me upset. A Black Expedition that I am extremely embarrassed to say had Rutherford County plates went flying by us (well in excess of the posted camp speed limits) as we were headed from Camp Craig over to the OA Lodge. In addition to trying to run us off the road, the vehicle came very close to slamming into the school bus full of scouts and adults coming back from Fehrmann and the Triathalon and from other parts of camp. If you know the driver of this vehicle I would really like that information shared with me. Also, if you know the driver of the vehicle, please let him know that Ranger Rob is looking for him, and they might want to call Ranger Rob before Ranger Rob has to track them down. We shared the vehicle make, model, color and plate # with Ranger Rob. They violated several laws while on the reservation and could very easily have slammed into groups of scouts and/or leaders who were walking back from classes, the Triathalon, etc or on their way to the pool, dinner, etc. We need to do everything we can to ensure the safety of our scouts by keeping them safe from bodily harm. An out-of-control driver like that has the potential to cause catastrophic injury or worse to a scout, and could also have a negative impact on all scouts in Middle Tennessee council. Please drive responsibly at camp; the rules and speed limits are there for a reason - to keep everyone safe. I am extremely grateful that no one was hurt by this driver; hopefully the deer and other wild critters were unscathed as well. (Had to repost this without the tag #) ... See MoreSee Less
