Troop 174

Garrison Overnighter
Jan 3-4, 2004


Our troop went to the Garrison Fish and Game Club.  With no snow the scouts played football and baseball.  The fire was kept burning all day and night, which used up a lot of wood that we had to carry in.  A few Webelos from Pack 144 visited our troop and had a hike with us.  On top of a stuffed deer's head we found a peanut, which had been there for at least two years.  Previous Scoutmasters, Denis Horbatuk and Robert Landsman, were the chefs.  After lunch the Webelos were taught how to tie new knots.  Patrick C.'s two front teeth survived an accident before Garrison, and Charlie J. slipped in the "horseshoe area" and cut his lip.  There was a peanut fight, a tradition where the scouts face the parents in a battle after lights-out, which was the thing that the Webelos enjoyed the most.
