Man your battle
stations!!! Look out for the
invasion of Troop 7 Boy Scouts. We
had our biggest group ever of Troop 7 scouts for this year’s Battleship
Right before dinner we
watched a video about the history of the Battleship. Did you know?
was known as “Big Mamie” by her crew because she was the heaviest ship
ever launched in
went into battle in 1942 as part of “Operation Torch”, the invasion of
No one was ever killed in
action on the Battleship when it was in service from it’s commissioning
date until it was taken out of service – which was over 4 years.
As usual the Troop 7
scouts played a lot of games like sardines and manhunt.
These games are so much fun on the Battleship!
The ship is huge and there are so many hiding places on every deck
– we get a chance to go all over the ship by ourselves and that is so
Later on it started to
snow so we had snowball battles out on the deck.
Some scouts didn’t want to play because it was so cold. The rest of
us had fun anyway.
Lights out time is 11 PM
but , of course, no one goes to sleep right away (except maybe the dad’s)
but we are supposed to be quite. So
after some running around and being told to get quite, everybody settles in
to try to sleep. But the cots
are kind of cramped. The top
ones can be very cramped because there are vents and wires sticking out from
This is definitely the
best trip of the year. We should
continue to go there and any scouts who haven’t visited the Battleship yet
should try to come.
Scouts, if you are
unsure about meeting times or events, you should call your patrol leader.
