You know that Mike is an Eagle Scout in his troop and you also know that now that he’s 18 there’s not to much for him to do in the troop other then helping his scout master out. But our troop 52 started a new section of the troop, it’s Venture Crew 52. It’s for scouts 14-21, the ones where they still so want to be part of something but are just past the age of boy scouting. Any-whoo… Our crew is a crew that loves to get together for camping, hiking, whitewater rafting, canoe trips to the BWCA, bowling, swimming, golfing, movie nights, shooting, paintballing and so much more. Well this year they didn’t know it but there were earning an award. Something that only 7 have earn in our council of mid-upper Minnesota and western North Dakota. 5 of them from our troop. They earned their Ranger Award. It was so cool. Plus Mike earned his bronze award. When he started Venturing it wasn’t for awards, it was just for fun. Kevin, their scout master, surprised them all with these. They earned them and didn’t even know it.
We had the Court of Honor Friday night outside so the picture wasn’t the greatest but look at their smiles!
A couple other pictures of the Court of Honor.
That’s it for today’s folks. I hope that you’re having a great week. Take care and God Bless!!!
