Troop 75 - be prepared…….to have fun

Savage Gulf in the South Cumberland State Park

Date: January 30-31st-2016

We went on an overnight hiking trip to Savage Gulf in the South Cumberland State Park. We stopped for lunch along the bluffs. Our hike to camp was 5 miles. The scenery was beautiful and the weather was great. Along the way we met an interesting hiker who had a baby doll head on her walking stick. She had gotten lost and our leaders called the ranger who had to come and help her find her way back.

On Sunday we cleaned up and packed up. We took a different route back. The hike out was only 3 miles. Everyone had a great time of fellowship and fun.

Weblo training at Chilhowee

Date:  10/16/15

This weekend we camped at a campsite called Chilhowee. We also had weblo scouts from pack  3075  join us  at the camp ground. We also taught the cub scouts how to tie knots and other things. After we got done with the afternoon classes we took a  hike around the camp trails. We hiked up the trail to the falls but they were closed for trail maintenance so we had to stop before going further .

Troop 75 court of honor

Date  9/15/15

Today we had a very important court of honor for troop 75. It was the first time the troop had scouts to reach the life rank, only this time the troop had 6 scouts to earn this rank all at the same time.

We also gave out lots of merit badges because this was the first court of honor since summer camp at Bert Adams.

There was a bunch of food made by different parents and relatives.

We thank everyone who was involved  in making this a great court of honor for troop 75.
