Vern Baker 1924 - 1992

Vern Baker was our groundskeeper and friend for all ten years that Nancy and I have owned Mah- Kee- Nac. He passed away in April and we will never forget him. Therefore, we are proud to dedicate this 1992 Totem to his memory.

Vern did many things at camp. He was responsible for our beautiful tennis facilities and rolling green grass fields. He had a smile for everyone and couldn't do enough for our camp and our campers. We will miss Vern very much. however, each year when we see the grounds come to life, we will know that a part of him will always be with us!

Campe.rsswarm to Lenox, as MKN opens for 64th summer

Adam Cohen Seneca 51

The 64th MKN season began on a high note as seven community coach buses rolled down the long. winding road into Camp. filled with excited campers from New York City. Long Island, Westchester and New Jersey. As the buses emptied. 300 campers found themselves on the campus for the first time since August '91. The campers made their way to their respective campuses. meeting their new counselors. and greeting old friends. In honor of the occasion. Chef Harvey prepared his famous roast beef and potato pancake dinner. For evening activities on the first night the Juniors had a campfire. the LSRs had a beachflre and bellyflop contest and the USRs played various Bunk Games. The opening ....-_--' .... day was described by many as "smooth", hopefully a Campers look at Camp Mah-Kee-Nac in awe as they unload their

Bunk games. a series of challenges that take an entire bunk to complete. was the evening activity in USR campus on the first night of camp. Every bunk had it's own "game" that it ran; one counselor stayed at the game while the rest of the bunk went out together to play the other games. Just a few of the games played included a group game of Jump-rope, a chair stacking competition. balancing ability on a rolling log and a ball

Head LSR counselor helps save Earth

Alex Oren Cheyenne 32

This year when camp started, Ashley Hammond, the LSR Head·

Counselor added a little twist. He told the LSR campers that for every fact that was read out during morning assembly, the camper that wrote it would get an extra candy day. Ashley started this because he thinks that it is important to be aware about what is happening to our environment. Also. he believes that for every idea shared, the ideas of others win be doubled. Ashley stated "if global destruction continues there will be no camp for anyone to go to."

Ashley has traveled to Europe, North Africa and the Mediterranean. Some sports that he likes are soccer, baseball, football, flying and skydiving.

This is Ashley's 7th summer here at MKN. In his strike out challenge, he has already been struck out five times. He hopes to ,.--- __ --"!!!!""'!!!!""---"'!!~"____ _ _! keep it under 20 but Ashley thinks that he will be struck out about 50 times. To Andy Cole and the JR campers, Ashley has one thing

to say - the LSRs are going to sweep the Sing this year. That's light, ..__ __.l

T,he meals, the myths,

the man behind the meatballs

Marc Sakin Navajo 25

When you're sitting at the dinner table, eating all the delicious food, don't you wonder who's behind the food? The man behind the mask is known as Harvey.

Harvey learned to cook in the U. S. Army. After he left, he went to work at Widner College in Chester, Pennsylvania. He has been there for 24 years. When schools over, he comes to our beautiful camp. He discusses what to cook with Danny and decides how much to make. Harvey's favorite meal to make is pizza, because all the kids are happy. He's been here for 18 years, and is still having a blast giving everyone here at MKN the best meals around.

tossing challenge. The results of the night showed that two bunks dominated as winners; Bunks 38 and 41. Overall. it was a fun night . though it was an unlikely choice by many for a future evening activity.

Beachfire ...

Ashley Hammond called for a flop-off to determine the fmal winner. Rod Barraza won the flop-off and won an extra night off. Ashley then lit the annual bonfire and announced the beginning of camp. The snap of the fire. smell of burning wood and the chewing of burntmarshmallows made up a wonderfu1 atmosphere. The evening ended in the singing of "Taps".

Bus Ride to camp helps builds friendships

Louis Brucker Cheyenne 32

On June 28th, campers from all around, new and old, boarded buses to ,reach a camp by the name of MahKee-Nac, which is located in Lenox, Mass. the trip ranged from a length of 3 & 1/2 to 5 hours, depending on how far away the bus started from. All the campers needed to bring on the bus was some food for lunch because the buses stopped and picked up sodas around noon. The bus trip to camp is really exciting and fun because it gives you a chance to meet and make friends with the people that you will be sharing your summer with ... Nancy usually travels on one of the New Jersey buses and Danny travels on the Long Island bus. They say hello to the campers and help out the counselors if

put in for the next summer. They would've been installed this summer but the town did not want concrete next to a stream that the town uses.

Danny bought the camp for many reasons. He really likes kids and sports. So he thought the best way to combine them was to buy a camp. Danny didn't like working in his office in New York or wearing a sports Jacket.

When Danny is not runnmgthe camp. he is still busy helping it improve. Three weeks after camp ends, he and the counselors close the camp down. They take an inventory of all the equipment. They clean up the camp. Danny meets new campers and shows them around the camp. He's up here until September.

After camp, Danny retires to his horne in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. Danny thinks that this year's staff is great and that we are going to have a great summer.

Danny Metzger .

The man behind MKN

Alex Oren Cheyenne 32

The most well known man in camp is the director, Danny Metzger. Not only is Danny well known, he's also the easiest to fmd.

Danny was born in Newark, New Jersey. He then moved to Maplewood where he was raised. He arrived in MKN as a camper in 1959. After loving his years as a camper, Danny came back as a counselor in 1970. Danny loved the camp so much that in 1983, he bought the camp from Joe Kruger.

Since the time Danny became the director. he has made many improvements such as the new pool, the Seneca House, improvements of many bunks. and Green and White. This year, Danny got the camp a new ski boat, a Catarnaran, new lights in the fieldhouse and Kruger Lodge, and the new beach volleyball court. If campers have ideas. Danny would like to hear them.

Danny hopes that new tennis hard courts will be

Mike Roache prepares for a meeting with some of his tribal counselors.

Hustle!!! Hustle!!!

Hustle, Hustle, Hustle! That is mostly what you hear when you are around Coach Roche. Mike Roche is one of the counselors for baseball this year. He is also the Mohican tribal leader. We try our best to satisfy him. Coach Roche is a die hard Cleveland Indian fan. He must have a lot of courage to root for the Indians without being disappointed. Then again, that is Mike for you. He is very encouraging. He gets what he asks for; Hard Work!!! So clean up your act when Mike "Coach" Roche is around, and remember: Always Hustle!

Why I always

come back to MKN

Todd Fuchs Mohican 1

I've been coming here for four years and the reason why I've been back is because I like this camp so much that I want to be a counselor here. Plus, I have a lot of friends like Jeff, Jacob, Justin, Cory, John and a whole lot more who make camp a fun place to be.

Jr. Counselor Hunt

Rory Levine Mohican 5 On the night of June 29th, the Juniors had a counselor hunt. Each

counselor received a list of junior campers and their bunk numbers and they hid all around the camp. Then the juniors were allowed to go around camp in pairs, trios or as a bunk to search for the counselors. I went with Steven Brauntach, Counselors were found in the most unusual places. Howmany of you had to look in a bush to find a counselor? Well, that was where you had to look to find Josh Manton. Some counselors were easy to find but some were really hard and it was fun to hunt for them. We

had a great time.

A Junior Camp agenda

Rory Levine Mohican 5

Yawn! What a busy day. You shut your eyes and go to sleep. The next morning you are awakened by a song, followed by A C. 's voice with directions and then reveille is played. You look at your watch, It says 7:25. You yawn again before slowly getting out of bed. You pick out your outfit and put it on, then you go to the back of the bunk to brush your teeth and wash your hands. Suddenly you hear A.C. announcing the sports scores. "7 - 4, Mets." Your bunk mate says "Yes", as the others cheer or moan as the rest of the sports scores are read. suddenly the bunk is fill with talk of baseball and other sports comments.

You and your bunk then go to flag raising, hurried to your table group and ordered to form a straight line, You do so and are let in 4th, "Not Bad", you think to yourself. You get into line, grab a tray and put some silverware on it. You grab your cereal, take a plop of eggs and toast, get your milk and head off to your table. You eat, then dump your trash and leave, heading straight back to your bunk to start clean-up. You make your bed, dean your area, and help clean your bunk. Your tribe leader comes in and inspects, "Okay," he says after checking out the bunk, "Personal grooming." you line up and when its your turn he says "Hands" then "teeth", you smile and fmd out its time for first period. You go to first and the second period. Then to lunch and then continue the day with third, fourth period and Junior club. Dinner comes around and then you have an evening activity which is always fun. Time flies fast and its time to get ready to go to bed. So ends another hectic day in junior camp.

Celebrity Betting

Steven Brauntuch Mohican 5

On July 3, the Juniors had their first indoor activity.

It was called Counselor Sweepstakes. Visiting camp MKN were Wayne & Garth from the movie "Wayne's World", Cheech and Chong, Sgt. Slaughter to get us ready for Independence Day from the WWF, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, Cliff from Cheers and the world famous Buddha. The object was to bet money on one of the groups of people who would answer the question correctly .. You would start off with $100.00. You had to bet multiples often. The winners were bunks 13, 7, and 1. One of the questions was "What do you put on a letter last?" Sgt. Slaughter answered "A headlock" and Bunk 5 agreed with him totally (or at least I did). It was the best thing at that point in the day (considering the fact that it was raining outside) ..

While interviewed, Dave QUirk, WCM teachermentioned a few of these bands.

A sophomore at college, Dave has a bit of a different opinion - Elvis and other oldies are his favorites.

It's raining outside and the kids in bunks #25 are off the wall. I'm tired, so is Dave, but the conversation goes on. Dave mentions that he was DJ in Oklahoma and was very nervous on his first time at the mike.

He came to MKN to teach the kids to be comfortable with the equipment, to listen to the music, and to watch the kids learn about radio.

A lot of kids have been

wondering what happened to the WCM room. the wiring in the room couldn't hold power so WCM moved to the library. (WCM is now in the WCM room).

Most kids like to go on to play their favorite music and to be heard.

Year after year more kids are bringing CD's and CD players so nowWCM has a CD player.

The interview moves on:

Dave talks about to days music. "Some people have gone too far. Like Ice-T. He hurts a lot of race relations."

Dave also likes MTV - which shows music videos. He thinks they add a whole new dimension to music.

Besides loves sports.

The old court was simply dug up and was replaced with sand. When asked on what he thought of the new court, the volleyball instructor Brtan Heath replied, 'The court is really great. In my opinion, the volleyball periods will increase in numbers since the new beach court is here at MKN."

The game of Baseball:

The long and short of it

Brian Zeller Mohican 3

The average baseball game in the American League is 2:54 minutes, while in the National League, it takes 2:46 minutes. Some people think because of more pitchers, the games are longer. Between 1975 and 1992. American League teams average 6.1 pitchers per game and the National League averages 6.5 pitchers per game. Commercials probably add 30 to 45 seconds to each half inning, or as much as 12 minutes to a game. Some suggestions are: force umpires to honor the strike as it's stated in the official rules, penalize batters who step out of the box before every pitch. There should be no warmups for relief pitchers because every time you bring in a relief pitcher, he's allowed eight warm-up pitches. That should not be. Rule 8.04 says pitchers may take 20 seconds between pitches when the bases are unoccupied.

Raccoonrepellent ... Presidential Laxative ... L.A. tourist attractions ... You probably won't see these commercials on your TV, but that does not mean that you won't see them on the Kruger Lodge stage.

Bunks #21 through #32 gathered all of their wits, and tried to come up with a commercial for July 10th's Commercial Night at the Kruger Lodge.

At the end of all the commercials. the judges gathered up their scores and came up with these results: In third place came Bunk #32 with an assortment of commercials; Bunk #24 ,with Jay's Bar; And in first place, came a hilarious skit from Bunk #29 which imitated the camp's riflery teacher and advertising aspirin.

Of course none of these commercials will make the big time, but don't be surprised if you see an ad for mothball puffs on your TV screen.

Cheyenne trip to Riverside

Alex Oren Cheyenne 32

On Wednesday, July 15th, the Cheyermes took their first out of campus trip to the Riverside Amusement Park. When the Cheyermes got there, they had lunch and then split up into walking groups. Campers flocked to rides such as The Cyclone, The Black Widow and The Haunted Lagoon. Other rides that the Cheyermes liked were The Log Flume, Bumper Cars and The Thunderbolt. Before the Cheyennes left, they went into the candy stores and bought as much candy as they could. I'm sure that everybody had a great time and would like to thank: Chris Barker for keeping the trip organized.

Why Green and White is so special

Marc Sackin Navajo 25

Every week. every kid looks forward to Sunday night.

Not because it is the first night of the week; not because their tribe leader is onO.D.; but because of the fun-filled Green and White.

Green and White is where MKN is split into two teams.

During each Sunday's evening activity, they compete in such events as One Pitch. Cricket, softball, football, soccer, tennis. and many other games. Like the Olympics and Intercamps, Green and White is the a fun part of camp.

At the end of each Green and White, there is a type of relay race in each camp. Whichever team wins the race gets to hit the leader of the other team with a pie. In Junior camp, Peter Greene keeps getting "pied" by P.J. Green; In LSR camp, both Chris Hillman and Viv Owen have been "pied"; and in USR camp, both Mike Houpe and Mike Sainz have also been "pied."

Sail away with MKN's new Catamaran

Mike Rowin Cheyenne 27

This year at MKN, the sailing program is better than ever. Especially with our new Hobie Cat Catamaran. It is sailing well. The Hobie Cat is very complicated and is difficult to rig and dertg, We sail it a lot and try to rotate turns with which campers get to help sail it. Nick Reilly and "Woody" Boyd Search are the counselors who sail the Cat the most. The sailing staff is trying to teach the older sailers, mostly the upper seniors, to sail, rig and dertg the cat so that they can take out a few of the younger campers at a time when they want to.

Marty Baron the head of sailing, is pleased with the sailing program, butwants to make it better by having more kids involved. "We have no new sailboats, aside from the Cat, but there is no need for new ones as we have enough boats which are in excel-

lent condition. ~

MKN won at the Berkshire Cup this year. Marty is very pleased that everyone who went to the Cup was able to bring home a trophy. He is also pleased that everyone participated equally from MKN. This year's win makes MKN the winner of the Cup for four out of seven of the last years ..

As a camper watching around camp and a sailor myself, I must say that MKN's sailing program is pretty impressive.

MKN, meet your new waterfront director

Jak.e Lesnlk Navajo 24

This year Mah-Kee-Nac has a new waterfront director.

He is Danny Gall. Danny has a lot of experience at the waterfront and in the water. At two different Boy Scout camps, he has been the waterfront director. Also, he went to UCLA on a swimming scholarship. Danny was on the swim team when UCLA won the national championships. He also placed 31 stat the U.S. Olympic trials in 1984.

During the regular year, Danny teaches elementary school, He teaches 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. In September he will be getting married. This past July 2nd was Dan's 32nd birthday.

Danny is happy with the waterfront and will only make a few changes, He is going to change the dock system to make it easier for the ski boat drivers to park. Danny also made the new swim test to see if the campers are able to swim well enough to use the waterfront facilities. There are no other changes in the foreseeable future, he stated.

'The staff is very good," says Danny. Danny is also pleased with our buddy system and with the tower. He has learned the routine and is now running the waterfront smoothly as it has been in the past. Dan is also happy that they have a new ski boat and a new Catamaran. I'd have to say that Mah-Kee-Nac is lucky to have a waterfront director as wonderful as Dan.

Just what

The Totem would like to thank. Danny Gall and the entire waterfront staff for all their help.

Ryan Shell Navajo 22

This is a day in the life of MKN's whaler men. They are the counselors who go under the title of patrolman. They go out in lake MKN and help capsized sailing boats; people who are in need of emergency care, which fortunately we haven't had any ernergencies yet at MKN. in case you are wondering what the whaler is, it is a rectangular shaped boat with a CB radio, which enables the boat to reach any spot in the lake wi.thin minutes.

How the waterfont works

Brian Moskin Mohican 3

1992's MKN waterfront is reopening for another great summer. The waterfront procedure is first you go mstde the boathouse and get your chip. If you have a red chip, you cannot be in a boat without a counselor and you can only swim in the waders area. If you have a white chip, you can participate in just about any program that the waterfront has to offer. You then wait with your counselor until the tower says it is all clear for you to enter the steps and you place your chip on the board.

When the period is over, you wait with your counselor again until the tower says that you may go into the board are to get your chip. Once you have your chip, you wait at the top of the stairs, inside the fence and show your chip to the tower. After he has counted you off, you can return your chip to the boathouse.

The waterfront has a lot of neat stuff to do in just one big place. The waterfront is a great place to swim or play water polo. I sure love the waterfront and Dan Gall is always there to answer your questions about the waterfront. It is a great place to have fun.

The Tower man (above) radios the patrol boat to find out how everything is going. Below, an up close look at MKN's latest addition to the Waterfront.

Campers enjoy swimming and playing water polo in the lake.

Surfs up dude ... Windsurfing that is

Mark Chillcott is the head of Windsurftng, He is 19 and comes from Tasmania. He goes to TSU and enjoys aU sports especially basketball, Mark feels that the MKN windsurfing program is very good. "The kids are extremely enthusiastic in the program and always try their best. ~

Berkshire Cup ...

excluded from the first race, although they turned up about ten minutes before the start.

The first race started at the far end of the lake, and as far as we could make out, our boats were holding strong. As they turned at the first mark of the triangular course, the MKN boats moved into first and second place. The second lap. however, brought a reversal in fortune as the boat which was in first place slipped into 12 th place, which was later improved to ninth place.

The final results for the first race was Mike McLoughlin and Steven Gottlieb in first place and Matt Klatsky and Danny Kempler ill ninth; putting MKN in third place overall. with only 1 and 3/4 points from the lead.

The second race was sailed after lunch with an even stronger performance by MKN,with Matt Klatsky and Danny Kempler in second place, and Jon Forman and Yale Klat in third place; putting us in the lead by three POints.

The third and final race was held soon after the second. with the outstanding result of Mike McLoughlin and Steven Gottlieb in first, and Jon Forman and Yale Klat in second; giving us the Berkshire Cup by a large margin.

This was an outstanding performance by MKN, beating nine other camps to win the Cup; making it three wins in four years. A special mention must be made of Mike Mcl.oughhn and his two wins in the only two races he has sailed in his life. Finally. I would just like to remind you that the winner hosts the regatta next year, so those of you returning next year will see the Berkshire Regatta at MKN in 1993.

MKN dives away with swim meet

Jake Lesnik Navajo 24

On Friday, July 10th, MKN won the swim meet at Camp Kenmont. We had many ribbons and medals to show our victory in so many races. Our most valuable swimmer was Oliver Weiner. Oliver had the most first place medals. MKN clenched the victory by the last three races. Even if we scored no points in the last three events, no team could have caught up. Since the judges knew no one could catch up, they added some special events. One of them was a coach swim. Our coaches, Greg Welch and Chris Felix, did not win. Greg, who is a fast swimmer swam well, but Chris was not feeling well. and tagged behind. The other event was the pyramid. This is a relay race where two simmers from each age group, 9 and under, 11 and under, 13 and under, 15 and under. swim in a freestyle (crawl) relay. At the end of the meet, the judges gave an awards assembly. There were second and third place ribbons, and first place medals .. The trophy is going to be mailed to us, because Kenmont did not have it at the time. On the way back, our swim team enjoyed a well deserved victory party at Friendly's with Fribbles.

Guys & Dolls revisited

Mike Rowin 8£ Mark Prior Cheyerme27

The purple palace of Belvoir was the second setting of the seasons of socials for the Cheyennes. Even though the music was pathetic, numerous partners seemed to dance throughout the night. Many female friendships were made, some different than others.

Jeff Gentile showed some silky dance moves, this time with a counselor, not a camper. Yale KIat ended up with a good night kiss and Mike Schwalbe and Harris Brown won studs of the social.

With another social approaching, there is only one question that remains, will counselor Chris Hillman ever dance with a girl at a social?

A member ofMKN's swim team practies before the big meet with his counselor.

Brothers & sisters; together again

We left after first period and got there 30 minutes later. We met our sisters in the parking lot. Then we went to lunch, which consisted of meatball heroes. The problem was the meatballs weren't hot enough.

We went back to the girls' bunks, and had a regular rest hour. We had to leave early because they had their carnival that afternoon. Overall. I think the boys had a good time seeing their sisters.

On Sunday, July 12th, some campers went to Danbee to see their Sisters.

LSR participates in

soccer tournament Mike Rowin Cheyerme 27

MKN is known for a great soccer program, but on Wednesday, July 15th, the best of the best in LSR Camp battled against other camps in the Berkshires,

In round one, MKN tied against Greylock and then did the same against Scatieo. Round three was a different story, as MKN crushed Wahnee 8- I. Lenox scored twice in the 1 st half in the 4th round, but then in the second half, Matt Waller scored from half field to tie the score and raise the spirit of MKN. Lenox then scored in sudden death to win. Sorrow hung over MKN, but had spirit for the next time.

Pictured below are some campers participating in a soccer game.

and kids. Then, kids with parents visiting went for lunch under the famous tent. After that, free play for kids with parents during rest hour meant that the pool and tennis courts were big attractions. Then came periods 3 and 4. After that, kids said goodbye to their parents with cookies. Then, brothers who were sleeping over came into the spotlight. They had their own evening activity with Peter Green. All together, it was a fabulous, but tiring Visiting Day '92.

The first person said they would use peanut butter for extra protection. Then he took a glob of peanut and put it on his nose.

The world of Soccer is changed by the addition of a new rule

Jeremy Schafer Navajo 24

This week a new rule changed in the world of Soccer.

It is called the No-Passback Rule. You are not allowed to kick back to the goalie if you are trapped by the other team. The goalie would throw the ball to someone else if he got passed the ball. If the ball got passed to the goalie, he must handle the ball like a forward beginning July 25th. If the ball is kicked by the other team, then the goalie can pick up or catch the ball to prevent a goal.

The Director of Soccer, Jeff Kelly, stated that "The rule will be played on and off here at camp." This rule goes into effect worldwide on July 25th, 1992. So for all you MKN soccer players, be prepared to play with the NoPassback Rule in effect.

World Cup ...

U.S.A., Scotland, Afghanistan, Liberia, Bolivia, Chad, Luxembourg and Lithuania. At the end of the morning, in division one, Afghanistan and Bolivia were tied for first place with records of 2 - O. In division two, Chad dominated with a record of 2 - 0 as well.

At the end of afternoon activities, Afghanistan and Bolivia were tied with 3 - 0 - 1 records. Chad would move to the finals with a 4 - 0 record and prepared to play either Bolivia or Afghanistan. As for these

two teams, they had a shoot out to see who would advance to the finals. The competition was fierce but Bolivia came out on top when Louis Brucker scored.

Scott Novack of Bolivia and Chris Hillman of Chad decided on a game of onepitch softball in the finals. It was a close game but when the smoke rose, Chad was still standing beating Bolivia 13-11. I'm sure that everyone had fun and can't wait for World Cup Day.

The chief of the Cheyennes

Alex Oren Cheyenne 32

Paul Wilson is the Cheyenne group leader. This is his second year here at MKN and he came back for many reasons. He decided that he wanted to see the kids and the Berkshires again.

Paul thinks that the basketball program is well-organized and that Chris Barker is an excellent director. Paul believes that in a game of football, the Auburn Tigers would beat the Nebraska Corn huskers 200-7. And thats on a bad day!

There is a rumor going around that Paul has cows in his backyard.

He would like to take this cruel rumor head on and say that he lives in a city so it is impossible for cows to live anywhere near him.

An unexpected field trip in ropes class

Zach Rentz Mohican 5

On Monday morning July 21, 1992, the ropes course was too wet, so we went on a nature hike. First we went to the dam and met Ryan the nature dude's class. Then we went to the old camp site across the field and in Tanglewoods dock off the lake. Here there was a big dock in the shape of a ''T''. we then went through a big field and saw the orchestra practicing. Finally, we got to the main. road and walked down MKN's driveway and was back in MKN.

Mohican 5

On Wednesday, July 22, the Mohicans went on a day trip to a waterpark called Zoom Flume, located in the Catskills. We were supposed to go to Sturbridge Village. but we had a lot offun anyway. It was wet and wild! When we got there, we went into our groups and went to lunch. After that, it was all fun and games. There was the River Rapids and the Canyon plunge. Also, for the tired people, there was the Lazy River.

Canyon Plunge is a big waterfall Ithattswhenyour going down) that starts out flat and then just drops. At the end, you don't know what happened. It was a bit scary, but it was still a lot of fun. Then after you recovered, you could go on the ride again .. That's how the whole waterpark was.

After almost four funfilled hours, we came home and told everyone about. It was one of the greatest trips ever, and something for this years' Iroquois to look forward to.

On July 22, the Apaches and Iroquois went to the Catskill Game Farm. When they got there, everyone was glad that we were breathing fresh air. The lunch was good. Mywhole bunk had turkey & mayonnaise sandwiches .. When we were in the game farm, they gave us five dollars each to spend. Most of the Apaches spent it on

plastic swords and lrnives .. When it came to rides, everyone went on one particular ride. I think the worst thing was if two kids sat together in one cart. The person on the outside got stashed. When I looked at one animal, his tail was going crazy for five minutes. Later, Iwentback and its tail was still going like it was on enigtzer batteriesl After another

five minutes it was still going, going, going ... Then I got a soda, went on the bus and left.

Who would be the "stud of the social?" At 6:45, the Cheyennes boarded the pa.sston wagon singing absurd songs and smelling like a cologne shop. When we got off the bus, most of us were searching for the girl of our dreams. Most Cheyennes went dancing with a girl, but only five came back with the "stud" award. Josh Lantos. Paul Gelinas. David Oxfeld, Brad Beckerman and Jeremy Hobbs won; Jeff J entile and Andy Saperstien won the counselor "stud" awards.

The night started off w:ith the opening band , called The Storm, a rock group from the 80's. Then sang a few of their most popular selections and then presented the star of the evening, 70's singer Peter Frampton. He sang a lot of songs that have been recently re-made, that many recognized.

The day that I couldn't wake up

Shaun Glassman Apache 12

When reveille blew ran one day I was still fast a sleep .. So Brian Harris jumped on me and said "Get up you lazy bum!" But nothtng happened. So he asked Jason Kessler if he could use his eightball and asked it if "Shaun will ever wakeup from his beauty sleep?" The etghtball said that its' sources said no, and then the whole bunk screamed AAAAHHHH!!! And Greg Welch fainted, Matt Branwein called AC over to the bunk and told him what happened. AC said that he would return in a few minutes. Then they called us up to the flag pole and AC came back to the bunk with a pair of big cymbals and played them together in my ear and I was still snoring away. Dan Galaba carried me to breakfast but it was over and I was still asleep.

!MKN Riflery team:

A shoot above the rest

Down in the hills ofthe Berkshires, there is a camp called Mah-KeeNac, When I was asked to be the head of the riflery program, I was not realizing how enjoyable this camp would be. All the activities in including mine were exceptionally run. I carried many years of Marksmanship experience and specifically target shooting; which requires a lot of patience and self discipline. In MKN, there are two riflery-programs. the air rifle and the .22 caliber rifle. In the program, there is a nice English guy named Duncan, who takes care of the Junior camp shooters.

In MKN. I teach and coach the LSRs, and USRs. The lessons are based upon the standing programs of the National Rifle Association. The first part of the class we reviewed the history offtre arms and then discussed proper firearm procedures, firearm safety and the various types of firearms and ammunition used in the program.

The basic knowledge of weapons safety and the safe use of the particularweapons are highly stressed. Despite not being able to fire during the first two lessons. the campers openly acknowledge their interest in the safe use of their rifles.

As of now, basic mistakes ,the proper handling the guns and the shooting procedures themselves were improving dramatically. The results were evident in the scores of the shooters. Campers follow their scores on a day to day chart while passing various levels of skill. At the end of the camp, each shooterwill receive a certificate recognizing their performance.

This past weekend, 16 of the camps best marksman competed against each other to determine who would represent the camp during the Intercamps .. The six that were chosen are Jon Goldberg, "Brooklyn" Gelinas, Jon Cedar, Max Maranz, Mike McLoughlin and Josh Lerner. Each are shooting at least the level of Sharp Shooter. This team w:ill representMKN at the Intercarnp competitions. We w:ish our team,and all the shooters all the best in all of their events. We can not forget the gracious help of Danny Metzger, Steve Rubhl, Mike Dale and all of the wonderful team here at camp for helping us and taking care of all our needs and wishes. Let all be blessed with a gratifYing and unforgettable summer. "Kifak, Hey!" ("Cheers!"}.

Cheyennes have a splash at Mt. Tom

Daniel Rosen Cheyenne 31

On Wednesday, JuJy 29, the Cheyennes went to Mt.

Tom. In the winter it is a ski resort, but in the summer Mt. Tom is an awesome place to visit - with an alpine slide, a flash- flood water slide and a wave pooL

The alpine slide is a cement track going down the mountain. You are in a blue cart. The cart has a lever to control your speed. There are two lanes, one for the more experienced and one for the less experienced. You take a ski lift up the mountain. It is a ten minute ride. but worth the wait!

The water slide is fantastic! One lane is Flash- Flood.

To start off, you are pushed by air like a super soaker. There are a lot of twists and turns and you get splashed with water. The other lane you push yourself off, but the drops are steeper. Both lanes are lots of fun! Lastbut defmitely not least, the wave pool. This pool shoots off its own waves. the farther up you go, the bigger they got It was a fun day for everyone, and we got out just in time for the rain.

A group of rocketeers prepare for liftoff.

The Apaches present "Born in the USA".

Jr., Camp rocks with, MTV Ni'ght

Steven Brauntuch Mohican 5

It went on and on with fabulous songs Uke"Everything About You" with bunk 1, "1 Can't Dance" by bunk 10, "Rock the Cradle of Love" with bunk 11 and "We Didn't Start the Fire" by bunk 7.

Finally, the results came in. In Apache Row, bunk 12 won with "Born in the USA" by Bruce Springsteen. In Iroquois Row, bunk 6 won with "Jump" by Kris Kross. In Mohican Row, bunk 5 won with "Addams Grove" by Hammer. Then. the overall winner: bunk 5! So, they did "Addams Grove" all over again .. It was great! The Kruger Lodge really rocked when the Juniors had MIV night.

5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 1 Rocketry!!!

• ••

Alex Sherman Mohican 4

On Sun. July 26th there were many rockets launched.

One rocket was launched and it landed in the pump house. They got it but I didn't know how. Another launch was made by Justin Pollak. His rocket was the u.s. Army Hawk. It launched about 100 ft. because the engine mount popped out and it started gliding and then suddenly it started crashing down. When we foundthe rocket the nose cone was 2 inches in the ground.

Now lets talk about great rocket makers, I think that the greatest rocket maker in camp is Brian Moskin who has made the best Explorer Aquarius I have ever seen.

Alex Mcallister: a chip off the 01' putting green

Mike Rowin Cheyenne 27

Alex McAllister works as a PGA assistant pro at Western Park. Alex wants to work as an aerobics instructor in the U.s.. and has won the Norfolk Open.

He also has a lot of plans for the golf program. "I want the kids to be the best they can be." Alex states. "A big future goal for me is to change the attitudes for campers. Not an intense attitude. An attitude for fun."

Alex gave me a description of the program too.

"There is a skill test that campers take. We work on campers individual problems and help the campers have fun."

There is also a new chipping green, a putting range and a practice range for driving.

"Everything is fine for me."Alex says"But I would like to live my life like a David Lee Roth video!" He laughs.

On Wednesday, July 29 Junior Camp had Superteams. Run by Andy Cole, Mike Roache, Peter Green, and last but not least, Brian Heath. Junior Camp was divided into eight pretty equal teams. Each team went to the same eights events at different times.

At the end of the first group of activities there was a tug 0' war. Matt Booth's team won the tug o'war.

After the tug 0' war, the eight teams were combined into four teams. They played a tag game where every camper got a card and when one camper got a card and when one camper tagged another they. went to an official and showed their cards. One of the campers [who ever has the higher card] gets a certain amount of points .. It was fun and everyone had a good time ..

Campers Camp out

Brett Baker Mohican 2

This year the camp outs were great. Mohicans get to cook their own food, usually Hot dogs. Then you toast gooey, sticky but good smores. Then you have potato chips and an orange drink. Maybe your counselor will tell you a story or something. And if your really lucky, you might see a raccoon. After sitting by the fire for a while, you go to sleep.

The tents are warm, cozy and comfortable because of the heat from the campfire. If you haven't gone on a camp out yet, have your counselors sign up because its a lot of fun.

Navajos have an awesome time at Riverside Amusement Park

Jake Lesnik Navajo 24

On July 29th, the Navajos went on a trip to Riverside.

It was an awesome trip. The weather was perfect. Some of the favorite rides were the Cyclone and the Black Widow. The Black Widow has one loop that you go forwards and backwards on. The Cyclone, even though it has no loops, was a very exciting roller coaster. The food at Riverside was good, but some people ate it at the wrong time and got a little woozy on the rides. In the last few minutes, the candy stores were raided for a lastminute attempt for candy. There was also a nice refreshing shower if you got hot or you. could go on a water ride. Overall, it was a fun dayl

Junior campers take old newspapers and tum them into new paper - board.

Ryan Sloane Mohican 2

Just a Few days ago, Mark Quigley and I had an idea for Save the Earth, aJr. camp club. It seemed to us that too many trees were being cu t down for paper; so the two of us, alongwith some Jr. campers started to recycle old newspapers inJr. club to make brand new paper-board. What we did was we took some newspaper, ripped it up into tiny pieces and added water. The mixture was then squashed into a soupy kind of substance. This mixture was then placed between two pieces of old window screen and flattened by a rolling pin to remove the excess water. After a few day of drying out the mixture made paper-board. We know that this alone won't save our planet, but its a start.

Sing ...

Danny Metzger announced the cheer scores. In second for the Jrs. came the Mohicans and the Iroquois took first. the Navajos won for the LSRs with the Algonquins winning for the USRs.

Songs were 15 points more [for a total of 30) and made a big difference in the final standings.

The Mohicans came in second for the song competition in Jr. Camp, but the Iroquois took first place and that put them in as the overall leader for the .Jrs.

The Navajos won for song inLSRCamp, making them

first in LSR overall, In the USR Camp, the Cherokees won the song and took the overall lead.

The three point leaders - the Cherokees. Navajos and Iroquois had no idea in which place they were in

"In second place ... the Iroquois!!!" Danny said. Silence suspended the camp.

"And in first place of the 1992 Camp Sing ... the ... Navajosll!" The Navajos and Cheyennes jumped up and down in excitement. And after years of domination by Jr. Camp, the LSRs are winners at last.

The performances of 10 year old Junior campers, Jeff Kleinman, David Ratner and Daniel Colish, all of whom have shot with Seniors all summer long, were quite outstanding.

The highlights of the afternoon's play came when Tige Korsmo. a staff member at Winadu, won our informal 99 & under compound division with a scoreof289,19innergolds and 11 outer golds. Some of the archers from Winadu drew quite a crowd, and the Winadu staff rejected our generous proposal to obtain Alex Okin in return for a first round pick, three Mohicans, a pepperoni pizza and an undisclosed amount of cash.

1992 Carnival

Environmental therned carnival goes over big with campers

!\lex Oren Cheyenne 32

Once again. the MKN Carnival was a blast! As usual, the carnival started off with a parade by the Jrs. This year's theme was the environment and environmental awareness. Each bunk did very well.

When the carnival officially begun. campers flocked to attractions such as the DunkTank, Speed Pitch, Sea of Balls and the Moonwalk. Every camper waited to be called to the obstacle course and to get cotton candy and popcorn.

Some booths were Pop-A-Shot, Air Doughnut. Rocket Hang Time and every card game imaginable.

Even if some campers didn't win at everything, they all had fun and that's what really counts.

Todd Fuchs is flying high in the Moonwalk booth.

Big booths bring bodacious bewilderment from campers

Mike Rowin Cheyenne 27

Yeah, the small booths were well. OK, but what I really liked about the Carnival was the three big booths: the Moonwalk, The Obstacle Course and The Sea of Balls.

The classic Moonwalk, is great fun for campers. In an inflatable castle. kids love to flip. dive, bounce andjump on a giant bubble. Although you could only have about five minutes at a time in it. the Moonwalk attracted a great percentage of the MKN population.

New to MKN was the Obstacle Course, which could be another Moonwalk in the making. Run by the USRs, campers would try to complete the course in the lowest time possible. You would start out by going through an elastic tunnel. run to a human spiderweb. made of bungee cords, in which you would have to go through. Another tunnel came up and when you were finished going through that, you had to wheel your way around a bunch of orange cones on a scooter. It was then under an infrared sensor, over a rope and the back under the sensor. You then went back around the cones to shoot a basket on a mini-basketball court. you then jump through an inner tube to make your way to a rope ladder that kept twisting and turning and after climbing it you finally rang a bell. All campers then received a small prize.

Another newcomer was the Sea of Balls. This was fantastic and was tons of fun for the campers. Multicolored plastic ball about the size of a tennis ball are in this room in which you could swim and dive through.

The Moonwalk, Obstacle Course and the Sea of Balls were only a few of the numerous booths in the MKN Carnival.

We cruised over the two infamous hills in Lenox in the general direction of the Berkshire Mall, our lunchtime stop.

This was about the halfway point for the day and we left after I had my extra power bean burrito.

We continued onwards and upwards onto Adams

City. We spied our~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~t by ~:~icke;~i ~

Dobias and Rambo Chandler, we stopped for a chat. as Btll was buying yet another crazy piece of headgear but nothing to compete with the Sainz Monster Trio Cap purchase .. Eventually. we got to our final destination for the day. North Adams State College and the "Bikofsky Mile 'a Meter" read 30 miles. We shot some pool, watched some Olympics and headed for Pappas Gino's Pizza Parlor so Greg and Mike could get their Coleman coolers. Unfortunately. we nearly had to open up the medical supplies when Jon "of the tight shirts" Forman went in to a fit of laughter. Finally he managed to control his laughter and we were able to get back to see USA quarry against the Unified Team for the finals

of the volleyball.

An early night was taken by all, in preparation for tomorrow's epic journey.

DAYlWO

At 7 '0 clock, Sainz's wake up call gave us a good early start for the day. We left our Burger King breakfast pitstop at 8:30 to head for the hills on a beautiful, sunny day. We left the state of Massachusetts at the summit of the 42 mile uphill climb. We were greatly rewarded by not only the view.

but by th~;:;;= .. following 42

mile down hill

proceeded to leave New York and entered Vermont and another meal time had arrived .. This was the day's halfway point with the "Bikofsky Mile '0 Meter" reading 33.4.

After a Bagel feast, especially important to mention at this stage is the smell originating the Bikofsky & Hattem camps of garlic, from some rather aromatic bagels. We continued through Vermont. up what seemed to be a never ending hill, stopping at the top to take on water. Then our days reward for climbing up all the htlls. a mammoth downhill ride, where Andy "counselor wannabe" Bikofsky managed to reach

48.5 MPH, only as Mike Sainz passes him in a racing tuck. I also managed to overtake a car of rather astonished passengers.

At the bottom of the hill. we stopped to regroup and met up with three lonely dogs. who obviously wanted to join the MKN cycling trip. as they followed us for about 1/2 mile.

The end was near and the college was visible. the day's mileage _~;:t;68.4 .. , n d

was given by the showers, but unfortunately the acoustics weren't up to par as Jon "Bob Dylan" Forman was singing his shower operetta.

Pappas Ginos was overruled by Burger King as an evening meal venue. We returned to the College as soon as Andy had finished pumping quarters into the pinball machine and Mike. Jack and I had fmally mastered the Tenpin bowling machine on the arcade machine.

After such a long days rider, sleep seemed a most attractive choice ... at 10 '0 clock, its the earliest night any of us have had all summer long.

DAY THREE

We were allowed to sleep in till 8 'a clock wait for a call as to whether Mad Bill was to collect our bags or we had to carry themfortunately he was on his way.

Off to the Burger King for a morning snack and a chance for Blc to earn his new nickname. then onto the road, for the final day's ride home to MKN. Yet again the weather was kind and the sun shone bright all day long.

We stopped to take on liquids to quench our thirsts in Vermont, at the Five Corners Store, a great place and we signed the visitors book, a chance for Jon "Heartburn" Forman to showoff his exceptional (???) handwriting.

"Oh no" cried the group as we saw yet another monstrous uphill climb and no shade to stop the boiling sun. This was a long and tough hill and we were all still tired from yesterday. but still managed to make it to the top and waved to some motorists, some even honking their horns back.

As Andy and I sped off into the distance. we kind missed the turn in to Pittsfield and spent the next half hour catching up with the group. Still it was lovely scenery that not all of the group got to see - well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

After being chased by a trio of women. we turned the corner to see the steepest hill we'd seen so far the last hill before

camp.

all about Antarctica .. After 1---------------------. viewing the movie, we broke up into our groups again to eat dinner, shop and take horse and buggy rides. We all returned to the hotel at9:30, tired from the fun filled day. The next morning, we arose bright and early for white water rafting. We arrived at the center and received our gear, consisting of a life jacket, a paddle, a helmet, received our raft assignments and listened to a safety lecture .. Then it was off down the Rouge River, filled with many raging rapids with names like "Sister Elizabeth, ~ "the Washing Machine," "Draino," etc. The river was much rougher and tougher when r-o rn rra r e d to M",,,'1p'

The Senecas awoke on the morning of August 10th, ready for one of the summer's biggest highlights - our trip to Montreal, Canada. At about 8:30 am, the bus rolled in with the Danbee girls who accompanied us on our trip. The ride was a smooth 4 & 1/2 hours, and we stopped for lunch on the way ..

We finally arrived and checked into the Pavilion Hotel. After seeing our rooms, showering and relaxing, we all ventured into old Montreal, where we broke up into groups to tour the old city and shop in numerous souvenir shops. Then. we all met in a nearby museum for an :::If'1"i'nn - nOIl'-'kf"n T".,<> .... fflrn

Kennebec River that we rafted as Algonquins.

The run took 2 & 1/2 hours, and was followed byaquicklunch. Then we were given the choice to raft the same course again or return to base camp to relax. A few chose to raft again, but most returned to base camp, which featured a large swimming pool, two jacuzzis, a snack bar. beach chairs and a souvenir shop. After relaxing a while, everybody met up once again and we dined on a buffet dinner.

After eating, we viewed pictures and a video of our rafting trip. Later, we returned to the hotel, tired from our exciting day.

On the third day, we got to sleep in a bit later. After breakfast, we headed for a tour of the Montreal Olympic Stadium, where many of the events of the 1976 Olympic Games took place; and where the Montreal Expos play. We also viewed the pool complex, admiring the large, deep pool and the high diving platforms. The whole tour was very interesting. We left there and headed for La Ronde, a huge amusement and waterslide park. The waterslide part was filled with many exciting and fast

slides, including a horizontal straight down slide. There were also many pools to relax in, Then we headed to the amusement park. It was huge, with many popuJar attractions such as the loop roller coaster, ferris wheel, sling-shot and much more. All had fun. We then went back to the hotel and ordered really horrible pizza and went to bed ..

We awoke on the fourth andfmaldayofourtrip. In the morning, we broke up into our groups and toured Montreal's many underground malls which were identical to the mall here in the states. After shopping for hours, we all headed back to the Olympic Stadium where we toured the Biodome. The Biodome was used in the '76 Olympics as a velodrome. After the Olympics it was opened to the public as a biking facility. but it did not catch on; so it was turned into a natural mu seurn featuring certain parts of the world, that climate, and the plants & animals indigenous to that region. We then went to the pool complex and swam in the actual pools used in

Cheyennes have hot fun in the sun

Mike Rowin Cheyenne 27

Boarding the bus for Lake George, the Cheyennes had no idea of how much fun they were going to have.

Stopping at the waterslide world first, the Cheyennes put down their waIkmans and slided down the Kamikaze and the awesome Devil Drop.

We then went to a bunch of outlet stores. After the stores, we rested at the Swiss Chalet Inn where we tried on our new stuff from the stores. People came back with a whole new wardrobe ..

We got all dressed up and went to the village, where

we ate dinner.

Lake George Around the World Golf was next. We didn't get to finish the course, but we came back in high spirits.

"On to the movies" everyone chanted as we boarded the bus to see 3 Ni.r]jas. The movie wasn't that great (actually. it was horrible) but I loved the food. After the movie, we returned to the hotel and had fun all night.

When we woke up, we got into our swim gear and went to the Million Dollar Beach. The village was only a few minutes away, so we went over there and shopped. We had plans for Great Escape Amusement Park. but we first went to the outlet stores.

The amusement park was great. We went on cool rides like the Rapids, Skylab, Spider and the GreatSteamin'Demon. We then ate a nice big dinner atBurger King and boarded the bus to gobackto camp. AU in all, it was an excellent trip.

It was a great way to end the day. After everybody was changed, we loaded onto the bus and headed home, only stopping for dinner at M'Donalds. We arrived back in camp at 10:30. tired but satisfied from the great trip that we will always remember.
