A TON (literally) of Food

The troop was hard at work the last couple weekends working for the Dublin Food Pantry! The first weekend we handed out information to some neighborhoods around Dublin. Th following weekend we returned to those houses and collected a ton of food! We headed back to the church and sorted for a few hours. In the end we collected over 2000 pounds of food. One of the members of the Dublin Food Pantry told us how impressed she was with scouts. She said that many of the scout troops across Dublin were helping at the pantry, and that it was a huge help. She also told us a few stories of people receiving the food, and it felt great to be part of the process. 

Overall it was a great service to our community!!!

Camp, Shoot, Triathlon!

Another very successful Triathlon for the troop!

The weekend of September 28th, the troop set up camp close to the site of the triathlon, then went to a shooting range nearby.  A 20 gauge shotgun, an AR-15, and a .22 rifle, as well as some airsoft and bow and arrows were shot. Lots of fun was had! The next morning we got up bright and early to go help set up the triathlon.  We had a great turnout of 33 total people.  Into the late morning we helped out during the races. Afterword the troop got paid a bonus because HFP said we always do a great job helping at their races. 
Great job guys!

Get ready for our backpacking trip next weekend, the weekend of October 12.  Scouts who haven't been on a backpacking trip before, don't forget to bring your pack, with what you think you should bring so that we can go over what to bring or not to bring.
