About Us

A Scoutmaster's Blog
This is a online journal of the Boy Scout Troop 68 scoutmaster's point of view and thoughts on over 28 years as a Boy Scout Leader in central Minnesota. This journal also covers the troop's latest events.

Rosters
Find a listing of every young man who has been a member of Troop 68 on this page. Also listed is when each member joined the troop, and left it, how many merit badges he earned, and what rank he attained.
Campfire Favorites
What would Scouting be without the fun and good times around the campfire at night. These pages include some of the troop's favorite songs and skits, and a few of their own original.

Photo Galleries & Yearly Highlights
This is intended to be similar to a year book. Several pictures from each year's highlights will be posted on these pages, along with a brief explanation. Many of the pictures are thumb nailed.
Games
This is where to have a little fun and keep up with the troop members who play dungeons and dragons.

Test Yourself
The Scouts of Melrose Troop 68 are required to earn their Totin Chip and Fireman Chit cards each year by taking a written exam. Now you can test your knowledge of tool and fire safety by taking these tests.
High Adventure
Troop 68 tries to take a high adventure trip every three years. This part of our site will offer you a chance to view some of the pictures from these trips, and the journals written about the events. Links to high adventure bases may also be found here.

Videos
Here are Scouting related videos including videos produced by the BSA for commercials and promotions. The page also includes videos by the members of Troop 68 filmed during their annual Laughs For Lunch Show, and various camping trips. This is the official home of Buttons, the radical Boy Scout, videos.
Message Board & Forum
