Team Building at Klondike 2015

Team workScouts performed numerous activities at this year’s Klondike Polar Vortex.  It was a wonderful day with plenty of snow already on the ground.  The scouts practiced team building by attempting to maneuver a course while standing on two 2X6 planks.  The scouts have to work in unison in order move.  The trick is not to fall.

Bullet Mold Station, Klondike ’14

IMG_0629

Erik O, Chris J, Eric B, Eric K & Mr. K staffed the Bullet Mold Station at HW’s Klondike 2014.  Under a pop up canopy in the woods near the Range, and in extreme winter weather, T-75’s Klondike Staff shared casting secrets and showed participants how to cast their own .485 caliber rounds. Participants cast at least two lead “balls” which they then took to the Range and fired from one of the Troop .50 caliber black powder  “Hawkins” rifles.

Black Powder Shoot, Klondike ’14

Klondike Shoot - Group Shot 2

Once again, Troop 75 ran the Bullet Mold and Black Powder Shoot for the Headwaters District Klondike.  Temperatures were low, snow was heavy at times, but everyone had fun.  Thanks to the Scouts and BP Instructors from Troop 75 for bringing this event to all in attendance.  The station was so busy all day that we could only find the time to take a picture of the last group of shooters for the day.

New and Improved

Hi Everyone. As you have noticed, the website was down for a bit after it was hacked by some folks with nothing better to do. Thankfully, we have been able to slowly restore most of the functionality and content that was available in the past. We’ll continue to work on that, but I would encourage that if you have suggestions for improvement, you share them with the troop boy or adult leadership.

On the bright side, the interruption forced us to change some things. The format of the new site is more conducive to hand-held computing devices. You should be able to access the entire site from your iWhatever, or your droid device as long as you can get to the site itself.

Another positive, we have changed the calendar functionality. We are still working out the kinks, but you should now be able to subscribe or add the calendar to your personal calendars. We are using Google Calendar, so if you have a Gmail account, you can find instructions on how to add the calendar here If you have a ios (apple) device, you should look here.

This will allow us to have the boy leadership more involved in directly managing the calendar information, with the possibility that the leadership team will be able to update the calendar during PLC meetings (so long as our wireless router in the church is cooperating).

We will work to update/add content as time goes by, so again, please share your suggestions with troop leadership.

YIS

Bob
