Pleasant View Campouts
Highland Rim hosted its first annual Leaders Training weekend in Pleasant View. It brought together new and seasoned leaders from all four counties of our district. Leaders were invited to campout the first night, and attend five classes the next day including BALOO and Leader-Specific Training. The Leaders enjoyed fellowship and great food while learning new hands-on-skills from expert Highland Rim Leaders. Thanks to everyone in making this event a success.
The Leader’s Training Weekend was followed by an Invite-A-Buddy Campout hosted by Pack 161. This was to encourage families to attend a Cub Scout Campout and to see what Scouting is all about. There were lots of activities for all, followed by Campfire Ceremonies and Flag Retirement led by Troop 76. A special thanks to Troy Dowlen and Troop 76 for planning and hosting this event.
The fall Camporee was hosted by LDS Troop 571, SM Jeremy Young. It was a beautiful fall weekend and everyone attending had a wonderful time. The high point was the building and shooting of the trebuchets. Troops built a variety of different trebuchets, from modern to traditional, to shoot their potato ammunition. It was close, but Troop 545 came in first place.
All units have been very busy with their own activities. Troop 593 went on a backpacking hike. Troop 594 went backpacking at Stone door. Troop 76 went camping and completed a service project for Montgomery Bell State Park, including restoring three fire pits along the backcountry trails. Our packs have had some exciting pack meetings and several troops have Scouts working on Eagle projects.
