Five scouts from Troop 107 participated in the 46th annual Klondike Derby in downtown Bristol on Saturday.  This was a great opportunity for us to fellowship with other local scouts while practicing important scouting skills such as first aid, knot tying, and fire building.

A couple of our scouts were featured in a Bristol Herald Courier news story of the event.

Here is a link to the news article:

7 scouts from Troop 107 attended Merit Badge University this year at ETSU.  We worked on a bunch of cool merit badges including Citizenship in the World, Citizenship in the Nation, Cinematography, Coin Collecting, Art, Nuclear Science, Scouting Heritage, Medicine, Public Health, and Traffic Safety.  One of our older scouts took the American Red Cross CPR certification class and several of our troop leaders took the Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training.
