Nearly 500 scouts participated in competitions including fire building, shelter construction, first aid, equipment inspections, flagpole construction, and straight-a-way sled races.
The Raccoons placed well enough in all facets to win the coveted Traveling Trophy. Troop 909 is lead by scoutmaster Jim Bystrom and sponsored by Fitz Auto Parts. For more information, call 483-6769.
