Another Eagle Gets his Wings

I am happy to report Brian Tyndall is our newest Eagle Scout. Brian was very relaxed and confident today and he comfortably engaged the Board members in conversation. Brian told the Board members how much he appreciated the support of his parents, his scoutmaster and staff, and his fellow scouts. Please convey the good news to the Troop 31 family so they may congratulate Brian.

This year the event will be a rifle and air rifle event so as to be able to include ALL scouts.  Scouts older than 12 will do Rifle and Scouts younger will be using Air Rifles
The scouts will split off into teams and compete in target (some moving) shooting. The Troop did this program a couple of years ago with great enthusiasm.
There will be no cost to the Troop or the participants. Refreshments will be provided. This event is being hosted by Mr. Donald Drexler, Executive Director of the Club, he is sponsoring the event in memory of his late wife, that he lost during the later part of last year.
It would be nice if we could really have a good showing at this event, as we have had in the past. Mr. D is always grateful for the Christmas Tree that we have been donating to the club every year as a “good will” gesture and is thrilled to be hosting us again this year.
