Allen Camp ground it was proposed to have two covered wagon cabins and one teepee tent. The Tryon Christian Union Church chose to build the covered wagon cabins. Thanks to Mac and Pat McCutchen, we were able to do the construction in a large shop building belonging to Chris McCutchen. We had blue prints to follow. We discovered we had many workers and few foremen. Dick Smith served as our technician, custodian, and supervisor. Well, we sawed, hammered, measured, hea ed and laughed for several work sessions. We roasted hot dogs at Dick and Fani's. Carolyn brought coffee and cookies. John Gibson, Bob & Ray Hunt, James, Zack & Logan Hall, Dick Smith, and Ted Gibson did the work. Tammy Dawn Gibson took pic- tures, while Margaret Gibson, Mac McCutchin, and John Purdy offered encouragement. We worked everyone from the very young to the "old". Finally, came the day the last boards were put in place by the faithful few. Now we face the task of loading it onto a flatbed and making its final run to the campsite. We look to the near future to begin building the second cabin. We have completed the build- ing of one covered wagon cabin that will sleep eight campers. It has been a fun project and actually a hard project, but fun getting together. We wish to dedicate this cabin to one of our church trustee and his wife, the late Mac and Pat McCutchen. They were killed when their Bonanza plane went down in Arkansas We miss them in so many ways and want this little wagon cabin to always represent the fun and hope that Mac and Pat's lives reflect.
