Thank you to everyone who made our Court of Honor a success and congratulations to everyone who earned merit badges and to those who advanced in rank. Keep up the good work!
November 16 & 17
We hiked in the fog this weekend at McAfee Knob on a 9 mile overnight backpacking trip. We had a great time, but the visibilty was very poor. This just means that we will have to schedule another trip on a clearer day to see the panoramic view. That is OK with me since it will give us another opportunity to eat at the all-you-can eat Homeplace Restaurant in Catawba, Virginia.

Tuesday evening, Troop 107 had the privilege of opening the city council meeting with the pledge to the American Flag.
Several scouts took notes during the council meeting for work towards the Communications merit badge. After the meeting, we met with the Mayor to discuss our Constitutional rights and our obligations as U.S. Citizens. This satisfied First Class requirement #5.
It was a very good discussion. We would like to thank Mayor Dolan for her time and her inspirational words.

This year’s annual Fall Camporee was held at Steele Creek Park in Bristol, TN. The theme was “Island Challenge” and the focus was on Wilderness Survival skills.
Classes were held on water purification, signaling, shelter building, & fire building. This year’s Golden Kettle competition continued with the survival theme by requiring “no utensil” cooking (i.e. cooking with nothing but fire, sticks, & stones). Congratulations to Troop 107 for taking home the trophy this year!
Troop 107 also took first place in the Island Challenge. Thanks to everyone that attended. We are already looking forward to next year.

We didn’t let the rain spoil our fun. We had an awesome hike on Saturday to the Sand Cave & White Rock overlook in Cumberland Gap.
