Virginia Creeper Trail Bike Ride and Camping

Saturday, October 15 – 16, 2016
Damascus, Virginia

The Virginia Creeper Trail is an old railroad path that has been converted into a wide and smooth trail which is perfect for biking. The trail slopes gently downhill and is easy enough for even the newest bike riders to handle. We meet in Damascus, Virginia at The Bike Station (about a 2.5 hour drive from Mooresville). From the Bike Station our bikes are put on trailers and we are driven to the top of the trail (approx. 25 minutes) in a shuttle bus. We are dropped off and enjoy a 3 to 3.5 hour ride through beautiful scenery back to the shop. The trail passes over bridges and along streams, and around mountains. There are plenty of scenic places to picnic and a few small restaurants where you can buy lunch. You can even stop for ice cream if you want.  Camping is at Bear Tree National forest, about 10-15 minutes outside of Damascus.

Cost for the trip will be announced as soon as possible.

Pack 171 Flag Retirement Ceremony

Monday, November 7th
Williamsons Chapel UMC

Pack 171 will be holding a flag retirement ceremony at our November pack meeting. Scouts are one of the only groups authorized to retire American flags. This is a very respectful and meaningful service that has meant a lot to those who have participated in the past. All scouts who are in their Class A uniforms will be able to participate in the ceremony. We will have several honored guests join us as well.

  • If you have an old or worn flag that you would like to retire, please donate it to the pack for this ceremony.
  • If you are an active duty or retired member of the military, please let us know! As part of the ceremony we would like to honor your for your service. You are encouraged to wear your uniform to the ceremony.

Scouting for Food Pickup Day

6366805215_0a908b1264_zSaturday, November 19th

Today we will go back to the neighborhoods where we hung door tags last week and collect the food donations. The plan is to start around 9am so we have plenty of time to get back to the church, where the Boy Scout Troop will load the food on to a trailer for delivery to the Mooresville Soup Kitchen.

We will need at least one volunteer from each den with a large vehicle to put the food in and deliver to the church.
