    Upper Limits Climbing Wall
    St. Louis, MO
    December 13, 2014


    Troop 161 spent the day at Upper Limits where the Scouts learned about rappelling, climbing, and the equipment needed for climbing. The Scouts were instructed and did many of the requirements for their climbing merit badge.

    We met at St. Simon Parking lot at 10:00am and proceeded to Upper Limits in West County. The Scouts were given an orientation on safety, equipment, and the fundamentals of climbing. Once the Scouts passed their safety qualifications the instructor worked with them on harnessing, buddy system, climbing, and repelling, they spent three hours climbing and repelling.

    All who attended had a great time and commented on needing upper & lower body strength in order to perform some of the harder climbs at Upper Limits. We returned back to St. Simons around 1:30 pm.

    Annual Pumpkin Sale
    St. Simon the Apostle Parking Lot
    October 18 & 19, 2014

    Troop 161 had its fifth annual Pumpkin Fundraiser this year coordinated by the Kriegshauser Family. The weather was absolutely beautiful for the two day event. Troop 161 would like to thank the following: On Friday night Mr. Lamb stayed most of the night to make sure that our supplies of pumpkins stayed safe from any goblins and ghost.

    On Saturday morning Mr. DiMercurio, Mr. and Mrs. Cain, Mr. and Mrs. Kriegshauser, Mr. and Mrs. Dlugos, Mrs. Ferretti, Mr. and Mrs. Strebler and the following scouts: Max (+ Gus & Adele), Brandon, Jonathan, Joe, and Alex S. set up our flies and pumpkins for selling. Several of our Scouts and parents helped out during both days. Thanks also to our St. Simon parishioners, and all those who stopped buy and helped support us by purchasing pumpkins.

    On Saturday night special thanks to Nick and Larry Berron, Michael Neuhoff and Chris Cain for spending the night in our very own pumpkin patch, the boys used a fire pit, shared stories and protected our pumpkins from mischief and hi jinks……………… Preliminary numbers are in but we have made over $500.00 with a portion going to each scout's account that worked.

    Thanks,
    John D.
