Annual IRON CHEF Cook-Off

This weekend  (Jan 29-31) 

Scouts test their culinary and digestive skills this weekend at the Troop 185 annual Iron Chef Cook-Off at Falling Rock Scout Camp.

Scout patrols will each prepare their own "unique" recipe of chili to see which is best.

Bring your mess kit, bring your woollies, bring your beans, bring your Alka-Seltzer and get ready for a great time that would make your mother cringe.

Troop 185 Honors Four New Eagle Scouts

Scouts, Leaders and families of Troop 185 took a break from the holidays to honor four great examples of scouting.

Chris Johnson, Brent Lewis, Austin Riggs and Ben Tizanno all formally received their Eagle Ranks during the fall Court of Honor.   All four scouts joined Troop 185 at the same time and survived Brown Sea at Camp Falling Rock under the careful guidance of Scoutmaster Chuck Johnson.

Troop 185 has now produced 106 Eagle Scouts - with more on the way.

After the ceremony all Troop 185 Eagle Scouts present joined for a photo.

Scouts Enjoy Geocaching Hunt

Triathlon volunteers earn geocaching merit badge 

As they waited for the grueling duty of helping the HFP Triathlon at Deer Creek State Park, Troop 185 Scouts learned about geocaching.

Scouts hunted for and found hidden objects by means of GPS coordinates. The scouts had to track "The Travel Bug" which showed where a council patch was located.  If the bug was there, the scouts were able to tell where the patch was located.

A strong contingent of Troop 185 Scouts and Leaders helped Dublin honor its veterans during the city's annual Memorial Day procession.

The group proceeded from The Shoppes at River Ridge to the Dublin Bridge where veterans dropped a wreath into the Scioto River to honor Navy veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice.  

From there the procession traveled up Bridge Street to the Dublin Cemetery where, as part of the memorial ceremony, Troop 185 scouts placed flowers at the monument honoring the fallen.
