Things got really messy when four of the older Scouts from Troop 357 of North Fork participated in the Spring 2018 Mud Run at Hobbs Grove in Sanger on April 7.
Scoutmaster Dave Smith and other members of the troop were there to cheer them on to a glorious mud covered finish. After cleaning up and changing into clean clothing, they along with other members of the troop and a few parents had dinner at In and Out Burger before returning to North Fork.
The troop is not done with dirt just yet, in the near future the entire troop will spend an afternoon digging to plant some trees as a service project at Bass Lake and later in the month the troop will be leaving the dirt behind to go play in the sand during a camping trip at Morro Bay.
At the troop’s weekly meetings, Scouts learn numerous skills. During portions of upcoming meetings Scouts will be participating in a first aid refresher as well as learning more about GPS usage.
Boys age 10 1/2 and in the 6th Grade or 11 through 17 are eligible to join the Boy Scouts.
