History of Firecrafter Fall Frenzy

In 2005, under the youth leadership of John Pinkus and advisor Walter Sullivan, Firecrafter introduced a fall event called Firecrafter Fall Frenzy. The event was created to give Firecrafters a chance to test their Scouting and Firecrafter skills. The first event had 50 brothers in attendance and Michael Carney left as the very first Firecrafter Ultimate Mastercrafter. Since then the event has been ran including a number of different fun and frenzied events and activities. Alongside this the Golden Tepee and Silver Flame competitions were created which allowed for Firecrafters to compete with each other in a team based competition as the first pillar of our organization is Friendship after all.
