Now one Scout's interpretation of the role of the Bill of Rights in modern society could result in some free cash for college — and for his troop.

The Shooting Campout was "A Blast!"

Posted by admin on Oct 27 2015 - 3:07pm

Lapeer County Sportsmen’s Club in Attica Michigan, 7 scouts participated in the Rifle Shooting Merit Badge. The day started out a little rainy, but cleared for a great day of shooting.  However, that night, the wind whipped up, and our Scoutmaster almost blew away as he entered his tent for the evening.  A camp chair was also blown over but the 2 Oreo cookies in the cup holder were safe! And still good to eat.

A FREE option to attend Trail of the Living Dead at D-bar-A

We decided that with so many SERVICE PROJECTS in October, that we'd offer a little incentive to encourage participation.

"Trail of the Living Dead" at D-bar-A Scout Ranch is always a fun time (whether you are a spook or being spooked!)  With the Shooting Campout later this month, this will only be a Day Trip for the Troop this year.  We'll still be helping staff the event, just not bringing the entire setup that we used last year.

With Popcorn Show 'n Sell and several Service Projects on the calendar for October, it's a great time to compare two different, but equally easy methods of registering.  In either method, you can see who else is signed up for each an every event.  Both methods are easy to use and it's worth giving each a try.

We arrived at Historic Fort Wayne and made our way to our camp ‘Site’  located really close to 2 Army tanks and amongst the barracks.  We attended the 8 pm arena show in the fort.  Musical entertainment provided by the Scout Band "Class A". Saturday, after breakfast the scouts participated in a Lodge ball  Tournament and other activities such as Paintball and a Car Show.  Following a tasty Hot Dog lunch, we gave ‘cheerful service’ by cleaning grass that was growing over the roads.  5000 hours of service were completed that day!

Nature Center Campout

Posted by admin on Apr 24 2015 - 7:10am

Nine Boy Scouts and 7 Troop Leaders & Parents headed up north to the Hartley Outdoor Education Center this past weekend.  They camped among the pines Eagle project camping area at the Murphy Farm.

They awoke to see goats, sheep, a donkey, chickens, pigs, a calf and barn cat. In the morning, some tried their hand at fishing in the Bad River, while others played in the park.  After lunch they hiked to Mine #8, now a museum of area coal mining. Then it was off to the recreation area where they played some floor hockey, gaga ball, baseball, etc.
