Welcome to the web home of BSA Troop 858, St. Peters, MO

November 1st World’s Fair Hike – Forest Park

We will be hiking the council’s 1904 World’s Fair trail in Forest Park Saturday November 1st. This will be about 10 miles and will qualify as one of the hikes for the hiking merit badge. Mr. Miller will be teaching the hiking MB at the 10/23/14 troop meeting.

We will meet at the parking lot of the Dwight Davis tennis center in Forest Park – please see map below. The hike will begin at approximately 9:00 am. It should take us around 5-7 hours depending on how fast we hike. We will be hiking with some Webelos from various packs on on Saturday. Please make sure you are prepared and are bringing the essentials for a hiking trip. This will be in an urban area so the need for wilderness survival skills/gear will be minimal. :-) Make sure you bring a sack lunch! We will be eating along the trail somewhere. If you complete the entire trail you will be eligible to receive a nifty patch.

Please let Mr. Barnes know if you have any questions

Rifle/Shotgun Shooting Campout

We will be doing the NRA shotgun certification at the 10/23/14 troop meeting. Only those who have signed up may take this class.  Those Scouts who have not paid for the class materials will have to pay for them at this meeting ( $8).

The camp-out is only Friday night – we will depart Saturday evening. No patrol cooking due to the number of scouts that will be attending. Mr. Haberberger  is the grub-master for the weekend. Please pay your $15 grub money to him.

Please bring your own shotgun shells if you didn’t pay Mr. Boyer to pick some up for you. They should say something like “target load” on the box. If you have questions about purchasing shells please ask Mr. Boyer prior to purchasing your own.

The shooting campout will be held at the Bench Rest Rifle club in Wright City.

We also would like each family (not just new) to bring a dozen cookies to the next meeting as we will be having a court of honor. Please no peanuts in the cookies as we have
kids with allergies in the troop.
