From April 10th through the 12th, Troop 46 had a TLT/Silver Spoon Outing to the Tennessee Sportsmen Wilderness Lodge. A special thanks to Mr. Biddle for letting us stay there. Scouts attending the TLT headed up Friday evening and began their instructions on how to lead in their newly elected positions. On Saturday,the new leaders finished up their instructions while the rest of the scouts came up for the Silver Spoon competition. All the patrols tried their best to wow the judges with their cooking, but in the end the Pine Tree Patrol won the competition with grilled cheese for lunch, nachos for dinner, and french toast for breakfast. Overall it was a very fun and rewarding outing.

Cumberland Caverns Spelunking Trip

Troop 46 at Cumberland CavernsTroop 46 just got back from our annual spelunking trip! We arrived half a mile outside the caverns and ate our packed dinners, then got our packs and walked into the tunnels. We set down our things, and we were off! We had fun crawling and climbing through the caverns, all the while learning about the history of them. After we ate a delicous breakfast provided by Cumberland Caverns, we had a Chaplins service and packed up our gear. Many thanks to Cumberland Caverns and our guides for the opportunity to go caving!
