Merit badge opportunities

June 16, 2012 By: Kevin Category: Events, Merit Badge

The boys of Troop 151 just experienced a couple of great merit badge opportunities this month.  The first was the Railroading Merit badge.  10 boys took a 2 hour (one way) trip down to just south of Mt. Rainier to spend nearly 8 hours in a real train yard.  They had a great experience learning about the restoration, history, and career paths of railroading from the very dedicated people at the Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad. They got to get up close to some real live steam engines and got a ride on a restored passenger car pulled by an older diesel engine. Really got a scale of how big, complex, and amazing these machines really are.  See some pictures of this trip!

Just a couple weeks later, several Toop 151 scouts were able to attend a 3 hour session at the University of Washington to learn about music, musical instruments, and performers.  Many thanks to the UW marching band for giving their time and energy to the boy scouts to put on this event!  It gave them a bit of knowledge about music, a taste of college, and the opportunity to hear some great musicians.  The best part was the exciting performance provided by the partial marching band that were there.  See a few pictures here.
