Troop 97 heads to NASCAR race at Dover

Posted

Scouts and leaders from Troop 97 traveled to Dover International Speedway in Delaware in May to experience the 2019 NASCAR Cup Series races.

Scouts prepared for wet weather by setting up tents and a dining fly for two nights of camping on the grounds.

On May 4, they challenged themselves in the Fan Zone obstacle course and Hungry Bungee Hippos.

Despite the rain, they enjoyed the Xfinity race and a performance by John Rich. The highlight of the weekend was a question-and-answer session with driver Jimmie Johnson, where one of the leaders got an autograph on his hat.

Upcoming and recent camping events for Troop 97 include a weekend at Muddy Run Creek, summer camp at the Trexler Scout Reservation in Kunkletown, and an astronomy merit badge weekend at Cherry Springs.
