The Trail to First Class weekend was a huge success. The camp site at Chris Dobbins was fantastic. We lucked out with warm weather and minimal rain. My thanks to all the parents that assisted with driving and helping their scouts with food purchasing. Special thanks to the Scout instructors who taught and assisted the younger scouts to earn their requirements. Special thanks to Kathy Miley for not only teaching rank advancement, but for also teaching the First Aid merit badge. Thank you John Cenusa, John Evans, Barry Walker, Catherine Beiswenger and Pat McDivitt, your help made the weekend run smooth and provided the assistance needed by the Scout instructors. 6 merit badges were completed, 7 scouts earned Firem'n Chit, 4 earned Totin' Chip. Multiple Tenderfoot, Second and First Class requirements were earned including First Aid, Lashings, Orienteering and Cooking. The Scouts also did a 1.5 hour conservation project repairing trails at the camp. Troop 70 Rocks!!
