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.
