Whitacre Farm 2014

Have you ever shot a shotgun or rifle? Our troop had plenty of chances to during the weekend of February 22 – 23, 2014. We left from the church that Saturday morning, and when we arrived at the farm around lunch time, we set up camp and ate lunch. Afterwards, we went target shooting for the rest of the afternoon until we had to cook dinner. Mr. Kirk Whitacre prepared delicious steaks and chicken for us, while we prepared the side dishes. After dinner, we made a campfire and sat around it until it died out. We then went to  bed. When we woke up the next morning, we prepared breakfast, did more shooting, and packed up to go home around noon. We all had fun that weekend and want to do it again.

On February 9, 2014, our troop held its semi-annual troop leadership training at Latham United Methodist Church. It started at 7:30 am and went to 8:00 pm. Three scouts served as cooks for the day and we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner there. It was a fun-filled day, with many leadership activities and team-building competitions.

Raising the flag over Fort Sumter

The troop traveled to Charleston, SC to stay overnight on the USS Yorktown, a WWII aircraft carrier, on January 18, 2014. Our trip included going to Fort Sumter, where the Civil war began. While we were at the fort, we were able to raise the American flag. The trip was a great time and ended on January 20, 2014. Here are some photo highlights of the trip.
