A look at the year 2019 for Scout Troop 334

The past year Troop 334 has strived to live by the Scout Oath and Law. We as a Troop work hard together to make each individual a moral, strong, and capable individual. We work hard as a group to make our Troop a morally strong and capable group. It is a youth ran organization with adult supervision meaning the boys run the meetings, make decisions on activities to do, and elect their own officers. The adults help the boys obtain their goals and make suggestions when asked.

Here is a summary of the events that took place in the year 2019 for Troop 334:

In January, we started the year off with a competition, the Klondike Derby. The Derby is one of the more known Boy Scout events to the general public as it has been done for generations. The Scouts started the Klondike Derby in the year 1949 and has seen the event grow to a worldwide spectacle that usually takes place in January here. Troop 334 took part in the Prairie Winds District Derby and the event was held at Camp Mitigwa near Woodward, IA. At this event we competed in the Fire Building, Knots and Lashings, Orienteering, Team Building, and The Great Sled Race where we were tasked with completing 4 different skill sets. The boys did a good job and just missed out finishing in the top 3 out of 32 teams.
