The first Crescent Bay Council Scout-O-Rama began modestly as seen in this very small and simple stage for the show(s).   Scouts watch a "Spaceman" at the microphone who has emerged from a retro-fitted Jeep
while members of the Scout Band look on from the left of the stage.


The "Spaceman" looks up towards the sky as all of the scouts look with him.
