The 1982 season opens on June 27 with four two-week sessions giving all girls six through 17, non-Scouts as well as Girl Scoots throughout New Hampshire and southeastern Vermont, an opportunity to live in the outdoors and develop camping skills which last throughout their lives. "We hope that a summer camp experience can be a part of every girl's growing up years," says Miss Frankel. "It's a great opportunity for them to mature and develop responsibility while having fun in an informal learning situation. As in the past we will have many special units designed for girls interested in concentrating on a specific area of camping, sports, or in the arts." A certified camp director by the American Camping Association, Miss Frankel holds a master's degree in recreation administration from Indiana University.

Robert Louis Stevenson NOTES & COMMENTS One of the things that kills time in life is the necessity to beat around the bush. Geoff Bodine has spent many a sleepless night dreaming of a top ride on the NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National circuit. "Just to be on the Winston Cup circuit in a Grand National car wasn't enough," says the talented Late Model Sportsman and Modified driver who has won more than 400 races during his racing career. The smile on his face widens as be gazes at the No. 50 Pontiac that has turned his dream into reality. "I wanted this so badly that I have to keep pinching myself to realize that I'm still not dreaming," adds the Chemung, N.Y., native who turned 33 on the day (April 18) he made his debut in the Cliff Stewart-Performance Con- nection auto at North Wilkesboro (N.C.) Speedway. Bodine replaces Joe Millikan in the Stewart-owned auto which is one of the eight cars on NASCAR's winner's circle plan which rewards the teams that won races in 1981 and are running all 30 Winston Cup events in 1982. Bodine has encountered mechanical problems during his first month in the car, but he believes the team will run GO-CART WINNER-- Kenny Blaisdell showed im- pressive speed on the clay oval of Bear Ridge, winning the go cart race handily.

The 1982 season opens on June 27 with four two-week sessions giving all girls six through 17, non-Scouts as well as Girl Scoots throughout New Hampshire and southeastern Vermont, an opportunity to live in the outdoors and develop camping skills which last throughout their lives. "We hope that a summer camp experience can be a part of every girl's growing up years," says Miss Frankel. "It's a great opportunity for them to mature and develop responsibility while having fun in an informal learning situation. As in the past we will have many special units designed for girls interested in concentrating on a specific area of camping, sports, or in the arts." A certified camp director by the American Camping Association, Miss Frankel holds a master's degree in recreation administration from Indiana University.

Robert Louis Stevenson NOTES & COMMENTS One of the things that kills time in life is the necessity to beat around the bush. Geoff Bodine has spent many a sleepless night dreaming of a top ride on the NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National circuit. "Just to be on the Winston Cup circuit in a Grand National car wasn't enough," says the talented Late Model Sportsman and Modified driver who has won more than 400 races during his racing career. The smile on his face widens as be gazes at the No. 50 Pontiac that has turned his dream into reality. "I wanted this so badly that I have to keep pinching myself to realize that I'm still not dreaming," adds the Chemung, N.Y., native who turned 33 on the day (April 18) he made his debut in the Cliff Stewart-Performance Con- nection auto at North Wilkesboro (N.C.) Speedway. Bodine replaces Joe Millikan in the Stewart-owned auto which is one of the eight cars on NASCAR's winner's circle plan which rewards the teams that won races in 1981 and are running all 30 Winston Cup events in 1982. Bodine has encountered mechanical problems during his first month in the car, but he believes the team will run GO-CART WINNER-- Kenny Blaisdell showed im- pressive speed on the clay oval of Bear Ridge, winning the go cart race handily.
