Goshen Pond – October 2018

Goshen Pond – October 2018
by Scout Scoutly

In October, Troop 48 invited local Webelos Scouts to come out and check out the  adventure that Scouting has to offer. As we have done for many years, we held this campout at Goshen Pond in Shamong.

There, the Scouts played games, led a 1½ mile hike at Atsion, and demonstrated and taught Scout skills. That night, the Scouts had a nice campfire and played
manhunt around the woods.

Obstacle Course Night & Advancement – October 2018

Our meeting October 17th saw the Patrols get through an obstacle course that they had created.

Hawk Mountain Demolition Derby!

Fun trip to Hawk Mountain in Pennsylvania!  Did a hike along the Appalachian Trail, then watched cars smash into each other.

What?

A new Tenderfoot and 2nd Class Scout! I have no idea what’s happening in the second picture.

Patrol Team Building – October

October was team-building month at Troop 48!  Started with some teamwork challenges!

MS City-to-Shore Ride – September 2018

MS City-to-Shore Trip
September 2018
by Scout Scoutly

In September, Troop 48 headed down toward the shore to participate in another year of the MS City-to-Shore Ride. On Saturday, we went to the Sweetwater Fire Company, where we spent the morning running the rest stop for more than 1,000 riders, setting up tables, handing out water and food, and then breaking everything down again.

Meanwhile, Magnus rode 100 miles from Cherry Hill to Ocean City, raising over $1,500 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society in the process.

That night, we headed to Ocean City Boardwalk for a night of spaghetti and fun.

On Sunday, we were up early, broke camp, and headed to Hammonton. There, Troop 48 spent all morning and part of the afternoon helping out all over again, as thousands of riders headed from Ocean City to Cherry Hill.
Overall, the riders and the MS Society could not have been more thankful for all
the great help that Troop 48 provided. Great job Scouts

James makes Eagle!

Congrats to James on passing his Eagle Board of Review at the end of September! James becomes Eagle Scout #125 for Troop 48.

For his project, he built a new stairwell at historic Fort Mifflin in Philadelphia.

A flag flew over the grounds of the US Capitol building the day of James’s Board of Review in honor of his achievement, which is pretty awesome.

Start to a new year!

We’re back!  New year = new Senior Patrol Elections, congrats Magnus!

The patrols resorted themselves into two patrols – Moose and Eagle.  Congrats to the two Tims for being elected patrol leaders.

In the meantime, Logan got an answer to his letter to a Congressman from Citizenship in the Nation Merit Badge!
