Current Troop Status:
Boy Scout Troop 166 wishes everyone a healthy and Happy New Year!
Recently our troop had a film festival in the West Building, which is a sleep-over lock-in event, the night before the New Year. We had a ten second countdown to the New Year, watched “Inception” and we ate popcorn, chips with dips and sauce, chocolate and pecan pie, powder sugar cookies, M&M cookies, marshmallows, strawberries, and played some games like Battleship, Perfection, and card games like President and Mau.
For breakfast on New Year’s Day, we cooked sausage patties, scrambled eggs, English muffins, bacon, doughnuts, and drank orange and cranberry juice.
On Saturday January 6th, the Annual District Scout Skiing Event took place. The Friedl family braved the bitter cold, and enjoyed a good time while doing it.
On Sunday January 7th, members of the troop went to an Order of the Arrow Lodge Banquet at the Garden Chalet in Worth, Illinois. There was food and an award ceremony, not to mention the keynote speaker, Bruce Rauner!
Next week, the troop plans to skate at Fleetwood Roller Rink, in Summit, IL. The troop is looking forward to many more fun events this year.
