2020 Ybees Event CANCELLED!
Ybees from around the world are distressed to learn the 34th Annual Ybees Labor Day event has been cancelled due to the deadly Corona Virus! We hope next year will be better and we hope you will stay in touch!
2019 Ybees was the best weekend ever!
Number 33 was a great success
Ybees from the known universe agreed that this year was simply the best Ybee event of all time. We had great projects but we also spent more time at the Lake, in the Pool and on creek walks along the scenic Goose Creek. Thank you to all the folks who came including a wonderful turnout Saturday night where we fed over 70 people the finest Baby Back Ribs in the Ozarks! We look forward to seeing you next year!
The new Ybee caps were popular
Kids dig the Ybees
We built a new Council Ring Entrance
We removed the old dead trees, applied a special masonry coating to the concrete wall and built a marvelous climbing wall with a host of challenging climbing features for smaller kids. Thanks to Beau for designing and supervising this work and to Tom, Hanna, Shawna, Amanda, Abe and others for their excellent work!
We built a new Rifle & Archery Haus
We installed two new bottle fill stations
We built two major Rock Projects
We built 26 new camp chairs
Most years the Ybees build sturdy Leopold benches to encourage people to sit and visit. This year, we built 26 new models with arm rests and everyone agreed are way more comfortable! Thanks to the Chair Crew!
We cleaned and made fixes to Ranger Camp
Ranger Camp is a great camping destination, but it had fallen on hard times. So, we fixed the holes, added a screen door, removed debris and did a thorough makeover of the area about the cabin.
We removed dangerous trees
We made repairs to the main road to the Cabins
We enjoyed excellent food from the Ybee Kitchen Krew
The Kitchen Krew outdid themselves this year with fabulous BBQ dinners over four days. Many thanks to Chef Brian and the ladies who brought food, prepared food and cleaned the kitchen afterward: Carolyn, Susie, PalVal were wonderful and we thank them!
