Six towers were featured in Peschke Field. Four were for display and two were for climbing. Follow the links for photos and information about each:
After a supply of bamboo was used for the gateway to Peschke Field up on Garden Ground Mountain, a team of Pioneering staff received the inspiration to use most of what was left over to comically copy one of AT&T’s nearby cell towers.
The 30-foot clever creation received a good deal of acclaim as Scouts and Scouters observed the structure and came to the obvious conclusion that the bamboo tower was a tongue-in-cheek reproduction of the highly technical real thing.
A central aspect of pioneering is to ingeniously and skillfully make do with what one has and use it to the best possible advantage, sometimes out of necessity, sometimes for utility, and sometimes for fun.
The Pioneering Area was named Peschke Field after Adolph Peschke, who through the years had motivated and inspired so many with his high standards, creativity, and pioneering know-how.
