Food Drive

Our food drive for the Mustard Seed Food Cupboard on Super Bowl weekend went really, really well! Between the Troop donations and collections from our bag handout in Barrington, Troop 48 collected over 1,000 food items! Thank you to everyone who helped out, and especially Steve Teti for all his hard work organizing it!

Klondike Derby this weekend!

After getting snowed out last weekend, the Klondike Derby will be this weekend (January 29 to 31) at Pine Hill Scout Reservation! How will our Scouts stack up against the other patrols in White Horse District?

Cost is $25 per Scout, we’ll meet at the shed at 5:30 PM on Friday to pack! We’ll be back early on Sunday!

Valley Forge Trip!

The Valley Forge trip the first weekend of this month was great! To start – temperatures in the 60s!

We did a 7 mile hike near the river, which included spotting a large turtle, finding an abandoned barn and mansion, and climbing the oldest tree in the county (and what a massive, impressive tree it is!)

Thanks to all the adults who helped out, it was a great way to end the camping year!

Tim’s Eagle Project

Thank you to everyone who came out to Tim’s Eagle project on Saturday! He had over FORTY volunteers. Thus, Tim’s huge project to resurface the mile long Batsto Lake (Red) Trail was blazed through (pun intended) in just one day, instead of both days of the weekend. The only reason Tim finished just 85% of the trail is that there wasn’t enough gravel!

Tim will announce the final work day once Batsto restocks their gravel supply.

Naval Academy Trip!

The trip last weekend to the Naval Academy was excellent! Friday night, we camped out in a backyard within a stone’s throw of the stadium. Saturday, we hopped on a bus and headed over to the United States Naval Academy for a tour of the facility. Afterwards, we did some exploring of our own, before ending up back at the stadium to watch Navy destroy SMU in the last home football game of the season. We might have arrived back at the shed super late on Saturday night, but we arrived home happy!

HUGE thank you to the Davis family for being such wonderful hosts and making this whole weekend happen!
