Basic tool safety skills class, 'Tote-N-Chip', was given for new members right after breakfast by Life Scout Michael L.
All scouts and leaders were given special safety instructions on trap shooting . Hearing and eye protection was mandatory.
Aiming instructions were next for the" low house" and "high house" targets.

We went for a hike to points of interest in the Fort. One of the sites was the national cemetery.
This picture was taken at a spot overlooking the Missouri river. The cannon (hidden under the scouts) was used to defend the fort.

There were several scout troops that participated with a formal flag lowering ceremony with our troop. A 30 mm howitzer was used to signal the rest of the fort that the flag was lowered.
