Is it Spring yet?

It sure doesn't feel like Spring!   The troop participated in the 2013 Lumberjack camp last weekend and learned the true meaning of "be prepared."  Rain and cool temperatures left a lasting impression on those who forgot to bring extra socks and rain gear!  Overall the troop worked well as a team and had a chance to practice some important outdoor skills!  Our troop is also showing it's age as there are a few boys rap...

Biking Campout

Asst. Scoutmaster Andrews led our troop on a 10+ mile bikeride the weekend of April 28th.  The trip had been postponed once because of bad weather but it seems the boys were meant to ride under adverse conditions.  The rain started coming down as they began the ride.  They all did a great job and the troop arrived back at the campsite with no injuries!  Everyone enjoyed the beautiful campsite by the river and lots of good food!

Hope everyone had a great time skiing this weekend. 29 made the trip, with 27 skiers and lots of excitement and fun, with only one minor injury, a few bumps and bruises, and some minor sunburn. 11 of our boys who did not previously have the Snowsports merit badge were able to complete the same and will have them awarded at our next CoH.

Perfect Day for a Car Wash

Posted by Pete Andrews on June 4, 2011 at 8:37 PM Comments comments (0)

The Scouts worked hard today and earned $540 by washing cars!  Scouts and the parents who helped should sleep well tonight.  Although everyone worked hard, I think most people had fun at the same time.  Don't forget the yard sale fundraiser next weekend at the Kiser's.
