Scouts had a great time at this year’s White Horse District Klondike Derby. Each of our patrols did better than last year, and Skeleton Patrol (pictured below) took third place over all! Good job guys!
Big thank you to all of the units who ran events for the Scouts, and the Brian, Nancy, and Kevin for helping run our event this year!
We wrapped up 2018 with our annual Court of Honor, celebrating Troop 48’s 54th birthday! Scouts were recognized for their accomplishments, a slide show of absurd pictures was hollared at, and many sugary snacks were eaten. Thank you everyone for a great year!
Had a great (wet) time at Antietam in December! We camped (swam) in the Appalachian Mountains of Maryland for two nights. Saturday, we explored (boated? swam more?) 6 miles around Antietam Battlefield.
Sadly, the Memorial Lights planned for the battlefield were rained out, but we stopped by to visit the Appalachian Trail Conference headquarters in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, because why not go to two more states on this trip?
Despite the rain and cold, it was a pretty great way to end our camping for 2018!
