Witt moved to Brewster in 1989 and helped with the Little League program for three years before helping coach the Babe Ruth team last year. "I think I will just throw the bats and balls out there and see what they are going to do," Witt said. "Brewster is my home town now and the one thing I know a little about is baseball so I might as well put it to use." Anyone interested in playing baseball can check at the high school office for baseball up- dates. This will help the new coaches get an idea of how many are turning out and will help in scheduling additional games. Eric Driessen graduated from Brewster High School in 1980.

After graduating from Whitworth he returned to the area and taught a private school in the area and was the assistant baseball and basketball coach at Brewster High School. Eric then went to Ritzville High School from 1985-1995 to teach and was the head baseball coach for 10 years and head girls bas- ketball coach for four years. He took five out of his 10 baseball teams into the state playoffs and he took the girls to the state bas- ketball tournament and finished with two seconds and two fourths.

Along with 14 of their adult leaders, Scouts battled cold weather at the Okanogan Valley District's annual Polar Bear Camporee held at Summit Lake on Disautel Pass. Troops from Omak, Brewster, Tonasket, and the Grand Coulee area vied for ribbons and trophies, all the while seeing who could have the most fun in the outdoors. Forty-three Webelo Cub Scouts and 20 adult Pack leaders from Okanogan, Omak, Brewster, and Oroville spent Saturday at the Camporee having fun and watch- ing Boy Scouts practice their winter camping skills. By Saturday the Scouts had spent a night in tents on the snow but few complaints were heard over a breakfast cooked by District Camping Chairman Wayne Turner of Okanogan, Troop 60 Scoutmaster Lee Maim, and Staff Advisor Gus Tillberg of Twisp. Turner and Maim were Co- Camp chiefs. Saturday's activi- ties centered on competitions among the participating Troops. One high- light event was giving each group about 50 feet of baling twine and having them make a sled of natu- ral material found in camp - the sled was to carry one member of the group in a race. At the end of the race they were given an or- ange and an egg, told to build a fire and cook the egg in the or- ange. Groups were also judged on how well - they had set up their camp, cooked a hot meal for din- ner Saturday, built a snow shel- ter, and presented their skit/song at the campfire gathering Satur- day night. Troop 60 of Omak won the Po- lar Bear award for the best All- round Troop and the Snowball award for the best Campfire Skit/ Song. Event winners included: first place Activity ribbon went to a Joint Patrol made up of Troop 52, Omak and Troop 68, Brewster.
