Hancock Elementary Bridge – Eagle Project

DSC_1146 editedSuper Fantastic Work Everyone – You’ve built an incredible bridge that will last for many many years and will really help the children at Hancock Elementary School to safely get to the field for their science work!

Thank you all for your wonderful efforts – 60ft bridge in one day!

Not only built a bridge, but also a trail and repaired the other old bridge. Nice Work everyone!

10 Scouts and 5 Adults of Troop 8 who CHOSE, on the coldest night of the last 10 years to go sleep in a tent. The temperature got down to -15 according the Weather Channel, but a local with a thermometer sent a photo of his thermometer at sunrise and it sure looked like it read -21.

Intrepid Explorers survive night in Quinzees and a tent

Ryan, Alex and Dalton, with the support of the other Radioactive Green Beans built a Quinzee hut and bravely spent the night in it as well, while Sigmund and Henry challenged themselves to a night in a tent with the low temperature of 11 degrees above zero. All of the Scouts worked very hard to build three Quinzees and learned this great outdoor survival skill but even more importantly practiced perseverance and stick-to-it-ive-ness and leadership. A great outing at Hoge Base!
