Ranger Rick has a new tool at camp! This new Kubota tractor is powerful and has an enclosed, heated cab (great for winter snow plowing). So far, Rick's used it to dig and back fill pipes, to clean, and for some grading.  

Two clinics coming up! Saturdays, January 13 and 20 from 9:30 am to 2pm. Get more info here. Bring your block of wood and design in mind, we'll provide the tools! In the parking lot of the Scout Shop 401 E 37th St.
