Attend this great “All you Can Eat!” fund-raiser and support a trip of a lifetime for 8 boys and 4 leaders to attend Philmont, which is a 7-day long hiking adventure in New Mexico in August of this year.

Scout troops 188/159 have set their sights on heading off to an ultimate adventure, as they seek to conquer Philmont, which a is large, rugged, mountainous ranch located near the town of Cimarron, New Mexico, covering 140,177 acres of wilderness in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of the Rocky Mountains of northern New Mexico.

According to James Coron, and Dee Merring, “This troop is going on its 50th anniversary, and have about 35 members that pride themselves in being very active in supporting community. A sub-set of the boys in the Venture Patrol are planning the Adventure of a Lifetime.

Adventure of a Lifetime:

The Venture Patrol: Who is a sub-set of the scout troup (average of boys is 16 boys years), have been training for this event for over a year. According to Chris Merring Jr. and Mike Stanzilis Jr. from the Venture Patrol, “During this adventure we train on the pack weight, and the altitude, and distance in which we will be hiking. We do monthly hiking trips as part of our training, as we learn to carry up to 50-55 pounds in tour packs pounds in our packs. We add sacks of potatoes, water, rocks or anything else in our packs that can take us up to that weight.”

“We do this because it the absolute pinnacle of high adventure Scouting, it’s full of dangers from wildlife, high altitudes, steep drop-offs and high winds.” In addition one of the Venture Scouts stated, “We do this because it’s out there, and we want to climb it, we work as a team and we want to do It. When you sign up for Scouts you get to do things that you have never done before.”
