December means

2014 Has been a great year to far and more summer fun is on the way.  We have enjoyed skiing, shotgun shooting, Crossover with Weblos joining the troop, a super rock climbing weekend campout.  We had a fun weekend in Washington D.C. and saw many historic sites and The Air and Space Museum.  We also got to greet 130 WWII veterans at the WWII monument, a real experience.  Summer camp and our High Adventure Trip to Seabase were great and we look forward to similar experiences this coming Scout year.  Still to come in 2014: Submarine Torsk, spelunking campout, natural shelters campout!
