Rapelling at Hocking Hills

Rock HouseThe troop went on its annual climbing and repelling trip. Scouts learned how to tie the knotted leg loop harness and used them this weekend. Also they learned many knots for climbing and rappelling such as the water knot and the grape vine. Although the nights were cold everyone stayed warm eating lasagna,ground hog stew, and other warm food. All of the scouts had fun climbing and rappelling but they also enjoyed visiting the rock house.

Court of Honor 9-11-2015

022_22_0001

It does not seem possible that it has been 14 years since ‘9/11’ when the older Scouts where in NYC working on Citizenship of the World just 6 week before that fateful day.  Although purely a coincidence of scheduling, the Troop had it’s annual COH this past Friday (9/11) at the Bellflower Park Pavilion (in a driving rain, of course). Incredibly, half of the current Troop’s Scouts where not even born, and the other half were infants, on 9/11. The US Flag in the picture of the current Troop at this COH was a gift from Troop 75 COH 9-11-15Kevin Kleber (on my immediate left, your right, in the 9/11 photo) with a certificate verifying that this flag flew over his base while he was serving a tour in Afghanistan.

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.

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.
