Pack 259 Pinewood Derby

Pack 259’s Pinewood Derby happened in Follett, TX, on February 16th at 1:00 p.m. 10 kids participated, with many parents, siblings, and grandparents viewing the fun and mayhem! It was a fun day!

Pack 256 Blue and Gold

Pack 256 held their Blue and Gold banquet on February 16th at 6:00 p.m. at the Perryton VFW building. Many kids moved up in ranks, and, one lucky Webelo moved up into Boy Scouts. Troop 256 welcomed Rhett Schaef, Jr., into their ranks. It was a wonderful evening full of Native American lore and games, and, a few laughs during skits.

LONE WOLF CAMPING AND ACTIVITY CORNER-Black Mesa State Park

Lone Wolf District is introducing a new section about places to camp throughout the district. I’ve noticed some people ask me, “Where’s that?” if I talked about places to camp, go hiking, or, participate in other outdoor activities. In this month’s Camping and Activity Corner, I am going to talk about Black Mesa. Situated in the far West corner of the Oklahoma Panhandle in Cimarron County. At almost 5,000 feet, it’s the highest point in Oklahoma. It features Lake Etling, dinosaur footprints by Carrizo Creek, Robber’s Roost, and Picture Canyon across the state line into Colorado. It boasts beautiful rock formations, scenery, and outdoorsy opportunities. Kenton, OK, is nearby with a museum.
