Rendezvous --  Doctor WHO?
Written By: Matt Gromala, Edited by Tyler Sepcoski
“Fantastic!” “Allonsy!” “Geronimo!”
The whole of time of Space will be colliding at one spot-The Area 5 Rendezvous at Camp Acahela, in Blakeslee, Pa., located in the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council.
Yes that’s right, the theme of this year’s Rendezvous is the dark, yet lovable cosmic hobo himself-The Doctor!
For the sake of the uninitiated, I’ll briefly explain what Doctor Who is. Doctor Who is a British science fiction show that will be celebrating its fiftieth anniversary. The Doctor is an alien from the planet Gallifrey , who travels through time in the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space), basically a big blue police call box, with his companions, saving the universe quite frequently. The Doctor has this trick to cheat death, regeneration, the only catch is he completely changes, from his looks to his personality each time he regenerates.
