Pound House Pioneering

The Scouts made flint strikers and worked on the Metalwork Merit Badge at the Pound House on Saturday, November 16.  Four Scouts at a time in teams of two worked the forges to make flint strikers.  The other Scouts observed or kept busy by learning some woodworking skills. Parents came out for smores in the evening.  Everyone had an awesome time.
