Bingham Waggoner January 25, 2017

The troop carried the Christmas trees and some decorations back to the basement of the Bingham Waggoner Estate, Wednesday, January 25, 2017. The job went quickly as the staff was well prepared for us. It was tricky to carry the trees down the basement stairs instead of opening the large door to the basement on the back porch. We worked as a team and was able to get the trees down the narrow stairs and back to the storage area.

STRATACA Overnight January 28th and 29th

How many Troop 282 members can say they have slept 650 feet underground? Well I know of 23 members who can say they have as of January 29th when we came back to the surface. The Strataca overnight in Hutchinson Kansas was a great time. The scouts that went, earned the Mining Society Merit Badge and learned more about a salt mine than they could imagine. The mine was very interesting and our guides were very knowledgeable. I hope the troop chooses to do this trip again in a few years.
