The 100k!

   Last week part of the troop went on a loop crossing along the Appalachian Trail on a trip titled, "THE 100K!" and was a tough hike even as ending with 70 miles and not the predicted 66. This trip required immense planning for food and other things with the need for angel services to deliver water and a supply drop to have extra food as this trip took the whole week. The troop spent time in shelters and in campsites. I guess you could say the trip was, "in-tents."
   Into the first days of the trip, it was hard and a few people were getting sick and vomiting. After that, it got a little better, but eventually the "family-bonding" began and everyone was having a great time. Day 4, Tuesday, was when Mr.Flam came along the ride for the night and brought delicious hamburgers for everyone. The week finished off with a fantastic lunch provided by Mrs. Cindy and delivered by Mr. Donley. After the lunch, the trip finished off with an extra few miles and some sweaty scouts.

Yard Sale and Car Wash

  Last week we had a yard sale with a great scout turnout! The car wash generated almost $400 for the troop with the yard sale itself getting loads of sales. Thanks to all the scouts that came out and helped with the yard sale and participated. Also a big thanks to the adult leaders for organizing this event.

Troop Meeting February 9th

Today both the SPL Elections were held and the OA tap out ceremony took place. Aiden will be our next SPL (again)! In regards to the OA tap out, Michael 1.0, Westby Slade, and Peter Smith were all selected scouts. Mr. Edwards was the selected adult this year. We also recognized last years' scouts and adults. Aiden Dinehart, John Dinehart, and Eddie Carter were the three scouts chosen. Mr. Brown and Mrs. Smith were the adults chosen last year. Soon,  a new leadership positions will be chosen (unfortunately, that means that I can't be the webmaster any longer)! Make sure not to come to the meeting next week, because there will be no meeting during the winter break.
