Nashboro on Ice
The Nashboro District Scouts were well represented at the District Ice Skating event on January 15, 2015 at the Centennial Sportsplex. Our youth enjoyed hours of fun as they got to interact with Scouts from other units in our District and made new friends. Some tried ice skating for the very first time. It is always a good time had by all when the Nashboro District Scouting community comes together. Thank you to our activities committee for planning this awesome event.

Backpacking Out West
Troop 3 set out on a High Adventure Backpacking trip to the South San Juan Wilderness in Colorado on July 17-26, 2014. They spent the first two days at Great Sand Dunes National Park. They did a conservation service project, finding and picking up plastic netting clips from a re-vegetation project. Hiking to the top of High Dune, they sandboarded on the dunes using sleds and skateboard decks.

The real adventure began when they set out on a 5-day, 35-mile backpacking trek at 10,000-12,000 feet. Starting from Platoro Reservoir and doing a figure-eight loop that went to Blue Lake, Glacier Lake, Timber Lake, Conejos Falls, and high up across the Continental Divide. Activities included backpacking; fishing, swimming in mountain lakes; "sledding" down the remaining high-elevation snow fields on sleeping mats; "sailing" on sailboat made of an inflatable mattress, trekking poles and a plastic trash bag; and, last but not least, soaking post-trip sore muscles in thermal hot springs. It was a truly epic trip the boys and leaders who went will remember for the rest of their lives!
