4th Annual Boy Scout Centennial Golf Marathon

Posted by Scotty on September 21, 2010

I’m an Eagle Scout.  And not just because my Mom wouldn’t let me get my driver’s license until I was.

Some of my best memories of kidhood are of campouts or hanging with my guys on Thursday nights in the basement of the First Baptist Church.

This is Scouting’s Centennial year, and in mid-Missouri Scouting is going strong.  Last year 24,000 service hours were performed by Scouts, valued at $450,000.

100,000 pounds of food was collected in March during the Scouting for Food Drive.

Scouting teaches leadership, achievement, character and service to others, all stuff our world could always use a little more of.

I’m participating in the 4th annual golf marathon on Monday at L.A. Nickell golf course.  It’s a fun event where we collect pledges per hole, and play as many as we can.

Lot’s of guys will play 100 holes that day, and some a lot more.  At this golf event, quantity is more important that quality!  I’m not sure how many holes I’ll get in, but it’ll be considerably less that 100 I’m sure.

If you would like to sponsor me, you can print this form, fill it out and fax it to the Great Rivers Council. (Fax number is at the bottom of the form.)

Thanks for you help and remember, BE PREPARED!
