Ian’s Eagle project was to resurface a muddy, root-filled walking trail that connects two paved portions of the Decatur community bike path at Green Street. Ian used older scouts to help with advance planning and to manage the younger scouts performing the work. They spread tons of sand and gravel over the muddy path to raise it above the level of frequent flooding. The project was completed in one 4-hour workday at a cost of $1,385 funded by the beneficiary, Agnes Scott College.
Ian Coleman earned his Eagle rank on August 22, 2017.
Troop 175 Scout Jackson Austin-Cruse earned a spot in the August 2017 issue of Boys’ Life magazine. He won the Super Stock division of the 2016 Dunwoody Northeast Georgia Soap Box Derby and went on to participate in the World Championship.

Here are some photos of Summer Camp 2017. We built bridges, shot arrows, piloted kayaks, sailed boats, jumped off the dock, played with snakes, cooked some meals, played cards, worked with leather, practiced swimming, sank canoes and attempted to play basketball in the water with a greasy watermelon. Oh, and we also earned some merit badges along the way.
Thanks to Troop Photographer Jack Henry Walker for taking hundreds of great pics!

Every fall we do some sort of outing that’s centered around target shooting. We learn how to safely handle and fire the guns before the trip. This year we chose shotgun shooting.
