The scouts had a great time at the Youth Shoot held at Dillon Sportsman Center. They had the opportunity to participate in a half-day safety course (if they hadn't already attended), earn many of the requirements for the Shotgun, Rifle, and Archery merit badges, and shoot skeet, trap, rifles, and if over 14, pistols. Each area had multiple instructors and coaches that worked with the scouts to improve their attention to safety, skill, and technique. This instruction and coaching helped them to not only advance but to earn NRA rockers to further demonstrate their learned skills.
Each scout that attended, advanced their merit badges and/or earned rockers. That's a great accomplishment! They also had the honor of serving as color guard for the event. Reid even had the opportunity to participate in the Cowboy shoot and won best overall. Our scouts really shined at this event.
Here is information about this year's popcorn sale - dates, allergen update, how to set goals and how to reach them. Important dates: sale runs from Saturday, September 14th though troop meeting on Monday, October 21st.
There a new service project opportunity! Not only Scouts can earn service hours towards their next rank, but also any donations from glad homeowners will be prorated to help cover future camping fees (of contributors). Handy parents, we need your help in guiding scouts to use tools safely.
It’s that time of year again when there are several opportunities to serve in your community. With that said, we are looking for Scouts who would like to assist with the 12th Annual Field of Heroes Flag Retirement Ceremony. In this ceremony, we will cut the stars and stripes apart of a large flag while a script is read and honor Old Glory by laying her on the fire one piece at a time. Your scout will help to hold this flag and will work with another scout partner to safely retire the rest.
