Middle Ages Venture Crew

Posted on Sep 20 2014 - 4:14pm

New Middle Ages Venture Crew

If you are interested in the Middle Ages, knights, armor, archery and the like then the Middle Ages Venture Crew may be for you.

Learn about history with a hands on approach to the Arts, Sciences and activities of the Middle Ages.

If you are a scout age 14-21 years of age, a non-scout (male or female), a parent of a scout please come to a short interest meeting after the Troop 50 meeting on Monday September 15th.

Current scouts can be enrolled in both scouts and a Venture crew as well as continue working towards Eagle Scout.

I am also looking for adults to assist as Venture Crew leaders.

If you would like more information or will not be at the troop meeting feel free to contact me.

Winner of the Penny Guessing Game!

Posted on Sep 20 2014 - 4:05pm

The penny guessing game at the Holy Spirit Picnic was a big hit. 

The Boy Scouts had probably 150 entries by those who tried to guess the number of pennies in the jar. The lowest number guessed was -73 1/2 pennies (I think I see remedial math in your future, kiddo) with the next lowest at 7 pennies. The highest numbers guessed were 50,000 and 50,001 pennies (by different people).
