Troop blog with troop stories, events, campouts, and recaps all from the troop scribe.

At the end of March, we went to a camporee, the theme was Alaskan wilderness (Klondike Derby).  They had everyone move their gear around by building a Klondike sled, as if you are moving your stuff on snow.  Two of our patrols were able to carry someone on the back of the sled, and even with the extra weight, they flew around faster than any other troop.  We also won the camporee as the best troop.  We had the best campsite.  We also had the best gateway.  We got some new scouts that were assigned to patrols.  New leadership positions have taken into effect.  The old leaders have transferred over their position to the new elected official.  Also we are planning a service day for the church.  We got 9 new scouts.  Our troop is really growing now.  These scouts will form new leaders as they learn what it’s like to be a boy scout.
