Camp commandments

picket-list.jpgThe pre-Chief Joseph Trail Ride briefing included a friendly and humorous lecture covering rules for the picket line. I’ll confess to neglect in my failure to write down or remember everyone’s names, but the picket line commandments were cleverly illustrated and helped make the key points about safety and common sense. Eric Tilleman, in the hat, is a vo-ag instructor in Cascade, Montana. One of his summer activities for the past few years has been to serve as official provider of the picket line.

For example: Thou shalt alternate tie spots so that horses aren’t too crowded; Thou shalt not tie to the metal rings on the line (they aren’t built for that); and, Thou shalt not steal another person’s reserved spot (conversely, if you reserve a particular spot, please use it so as not to confuse the rest of us).
