Troop 160 did a day hike along the new Trolley Trail from Clarks Summit to Glenburn on Sunday, April 12th, 2015. The hike was an opportunity for incoming Webelo Scouts to join the Troop for a Troop activity as required for their Arrow of Light Award.
It was a beautiful day and the new trail is absolutely awesome. Turnout from the Troop was better than expected. The Scouts welcomed Webelos from Pack 152 who will be crossing over to Troop 160.
For more information on the Trolley Trail, go to the CountryWide Conservancy webpage. The site includes a video of the trail taken via bike ride using a GoPro camera.
On Saturday April 25th I will be having my Eagle project at the Chinchilla fire hall at 10 am. We will be painting the retaining wall for the fire hall. If you could make it to the project it would be greatly appreciated. There will be food and drinks provided upon completion.
We’d like to have all Troop 160 Scouts and their families support Troop 251’s Spaghetti Dinner on April 9th, 2015, 5pm-7pm at the Clarks Green United Methodist Church. Tickets are for sale at the door for $8.
Let’s come out en mass and in full uniform to support Troop 251.
The Lackawanna River Corridor Association conducts a canoe race on the Lackawanna River as a fun event and fund-raiser. We’d like to get a few canoe teams or single kayaker’s competing from Troop 160. The event itself is only 2-4 hours followed by a food event at the end of the race. This year’s race is on May 30th, 2015.
There is a per canoe registration cost of about $50. Canoes are available for rent.
Additional information will be coming soon or see Mr. Gercken.
Several Troop 160 Scouts went Ice Climbing at the Delaware Water Gap on February 22nd, 2015. The weather was cold and the entire region was covered with a new layer of snow, but that didn’t stop the intrepid crew from tackling the ice. They were guided along the way by a professional guide who helped make sure they knew how to tie-on and belay. Its a good thing, since a couple climber slipped, and the importance of a good belay person was evident. This is why we practice safety – so we can have fun without incident.
Many thanks to Mr. Gercken and Mr. Sebring for providing adult leadership at this event
