Fall Backpack Campout
October 29 & 30, 2011
Blackberry Hollow
Beaumont Reservation
High Ridge, MO

11 scouts and 5 adult scouters backpacked the 5.2 mile "Shippey Red Trail". The weather was wonderful for backpacking, with high temperatures in the 60s and overnight low temperatures in the 40s. On Saturday we hiked the trail a little over 3 miles from the trailhead in Camp May, past Mud Cave to the top of the ridge and then downhill to Blackberry Hollow. Blackberry Hollow is remotely located in the Northern margin of the scout property and forested in tall pine trees. We set up camp and prepared our dinner. I think that most everyone who brought dehydrated food enjoyed it. Everyone turned in early after sitting around the campfire. Some of the scouts slept in a small shelter there. After preparing breakfast Sunday morning and breaking camp, we continued on the Red Trail clockwise back to the top of the ridge and then downhill to the trailhead. A good time was had by all.

Troop 161 Great Pumpkin Sale
October 22 & 23, 2011
St. Simon's Church and School
Green Park, MO

Troop 161 held its annual Pumpkin Sale the weekend of October 22 and 23. The weather was perfect for the event. We had a lot of visitors from Trunk or Treat since the 2 events were coincident Saturday evening. Our scouts also assisted the Madonna Guild's Trunk or Treat program by collecting donated food and by picking up candy wrappers. Thanks to all the scouts and parents who helped with the pumpkin sales. Thanks to all the leaders for all their extra time and effort. Thanks to Jim R. and the St. Simonís Soccer program for donating the straw bales. Thanks to Mrs. Amy Cain for organizing the event.

This fundraiser made nearly $700 profit. $100 will go into the troop general fund. Each of the scouts who participated in the fundraiser will receive $25 in their personal scouting expense account.

We would also like to thank our costumers that stopped by our "Pumpkin Patch". We really appreciate all the help and support we receive from our church community. (To view more photos, click on read more below.)
