Open house was a success we had boys new to scouts join us as well as cub scouts from Packs 15 and 11! Troop 11 demonstrated knife and axe skills (splitting wood), knots, pulleys and lashings, how to set up a tent and first aid. It was a fun night and we are looking forward to our next one later in the year! See pictures (click on "Read More".)
