Devil's Marble Yard Campout
Posted by: Charlie Brown - 11/15/13 @ 7:23PM




Ok the troop headed south to Natural Bridge, VA area to hike the Devil's Marble Yard last weekend, November 15-19.  We arrived to rain and setup in rain, not fun but we persevered.  The rained stopped so we could hike the Marble Yard.  For more info about the marble yard, go to this link.
No incidents so a very good trip for all.  And some good cooking too!




Fall Camporee 2013

The troop had a good time at the Fall Camporee and placed second runner-up for the Commissioner's Cup! The theme was Wilderness Survival. There were stations for building shelters, wilderness first aid and making survival bracelets. Also, the Stafford County Search and Rescue Team was there setting up a search for a victim using grid search patterns. The weather was great with a slight cool in the air and NO RAIN! Everyone had a good time. Click HERE or on the image for photo album¬†
