The troop welcomed 8 Webelos on Saturday for some fun activities including shelter building and Scoutmaster tea. After a chilly evening by a large fire, the Webelos departed Sunday morning. After their departure, we got in some rifle and shotgun time on the Camp Lazarus range. Fun as always.
Stayed at the primitive group camp, then did a lot of hiking on Saturday. Checked out the new Whispering Cave Trail and had some fun on the nearby swinging bridge in the morning. Afternoon hike was the Conkles Hollow Rim Trail.
We arrived at Deer Creek shortly before lunch to set up camp. After lunch, we found a MUCH better canoe launch just outside of Pancoastburg and spent a couple of hours plying the backwaters of Deer Creek Lake. Sunday was working the triathlon as usual. Good time!

Didn't have much luck with the planned canoeing on Saturday afternoon...just too windy and too many boats. It was otherwise a beautiful weekend with a nice sunset over the lake Saturday evening. Helped out with the triathlon Sunday morning and earned some money for the troop.

Had a great Iron Chef cookoff this year. Went for a hike at Blackhand Gorge on Saturday Morning and had the cookoff Saturday evening.
The "We Ate No Weenies" award this year went to the Flying Lemurs of Antarctica patrol. Great job by everyone.

We had about 12 scouts help with the church service today. Bennett told everyone the story of his scouting career, and Mr. Hoy explained to the church just how much service Troop 185 had done in the last year. Mrs. Raabe was even able to recruit some possible merit badge counselors. A good Scout Sunday!

In addition to our normal Court of Honor duties including merit badges and rank advancement, the December 21st COH we had the privilege to honor 5 older scouts with their Eagle Rank. Good job Pete Zimmerman, John Devantier, Trip Whiting, Will Molnar, and Josh Kocher!
