    Earth Day Tree Preparation

    Big thanks to the Venture Scouts and their families who helped with the Earth Day Tree Seedling preparation. Each year the Department of Conservation distributes free tree seedlings at the St. Louis Earth Day Festival. This is the 16th year we have assisted the MDC to individually wrap the seedlings for give away. The seedlings come in large bundles from MDC's nursery in Licking, MO. This year we prepared 1300 tree seedlings - flowering dogwood and black chokeberry. Click on "Read More" below to see more photos of tree seedling prep.

    Venture Crew 2161 had a great weekend camping. Highlights of the trip were camping on the bank of Big Piney River, touring the military museums and barracks, trap shooting, bowling, mass at the base chapel, Mr. Hoffmann's jambalaya, Alex's apple/cherry cobbler, Meals Ready to Eat (MREs), and Sunday breakfast at the mess hall. The weekend weather was mostly dry except for some heavy rain on Sunday. A good time was had by all!

    Thanks to Mr. Schnurbusch for coordinating this event & food shopping and thanks to his 2 lifelong buddies Mike and Bill for all their help. Thanks to Mr. Strebler for hauling the trailer and purchasing the fuel. Thanks to Staff Sargeant Palmer for his generous donation of the MREs.

    Crew 2161 joined about 20 other Venture Crew teams to participate in the event which started at Beaumont Scout Reservation. The program included shotgun skeet shooting as well as pistol shooting. The road rally involved following directions from Beaumont through parts of Sunset Hills, Fenton, Valley Park and Wildwood before ending at Babler State Park. Teams received points for finding and taking photos of items as part of a scavenger hunt along the way. Everyone had fun and plan to do it again!

    Venture Crew Snow Tubing
    Hidden Valley Ski Resort
    Wildwood, MO
    February 21, 2015

    About 80 Venture Crew members from Gravois Trail District enjoyed a night of Snow Tubing at Hidden Valley Resort. The snow on the course was a little wet at first due to day temperatures in the 40s. However later, as the temperatures dropped into the 20s, the course became extremely slick resulting in tube run speeds exceeding 50mph. The group finished the night at Starbucks. A good time was had by all.
