Tar Heel 10 Miler road race

Dear Scouts, Parents and Leaders,

Our troop has been asked to help out as race water-stop helpers for the Tar Heel 10 Miler road race on Saturday morning, April 26. We will hand out water to runners at a stop in front of St. Thomas More Church. They have asked us to be there at 6:30 am (yes, that’s correct) and say until 10 am.

All the proceeds go to two great local causes that make a positive impact on thousands of people- the UNC Lineberger Cancer Center and the Chapel Hill-Carrboro YMCA.

NOTE: These hours count toward CHCCS service learning hours as well as troop hours for the President’s Volunteer Service Award.

EVEN BETTER NOTE: The first five people who volunteer and show up by 6:30 receive a free race t shirt. Quick Color Solutions will also provide BOJANGLES biscuits for our volunteers before the race (reserve your favorite with me when you RSVP) as well as a post-race meal at Suttons Drugstore when we’re done. You can then go home and nap that afternoon with a full belly. J

Volunteers can park at STM Church. If needed, I can give anyone a ride home who might need it. I will also

This is not a mandatory attendance event, but I guarantee you our troop will be helping out a great cause, we’ll have some fun together cheering on our favorite participating runners, and did I say “eating some irresistibly good food too?” BO TIME starts at 6:30 am. Yours will be waiting…

Email me back if you or your scout can help out. I know it’s early in the morning, but it’s a great cause.

Sincerely yours,


Glenn Benton

Dutch Oven Cooking 

Dutch Oven Cooking 


May 05

This weekend we spent and unseasonably cool weekend at Camp Campbell with the Mawat/Orange District Camporee.

Troop 39 did really well winning several honours:

We entered 6 dishes into the cooking contest.  All of them were dutch oven recipes.  We won 5 of the 18 cooking prizes on offer:

  1. Naticus Minimus won 1st place in the Youth Dessert with his Green Monster cobbler made with Montain Dew.  This was despite one of the judges being overheard saying that he prays before he eats anything green!  Way to go Mr Minimus.
  2. James J earned a 2nd place award for his Chili in the youth main course.  Very tasty James!
  3. Mr Jennings earned a 2nd place for his bean feast (see the picture) in the Adult side dishes competition.
  4. Mrs Meyer (technically entering for Crew 39) earned 2nd place for her most delicious Bread pudding in the adult desserts category.
  5. Mr Tomkins earned 3rd place for his popular Pollo Alla Cacciatore in the adult main course event.   Recipe is on the troop site if you want to make it at home!

Troop 39 has a fine pedigree of dutch oven cooking and, as a leader, what is most rewarding is seeing the youth of the troop being so enthusiastic about cooking in dutch ovens.  Some great photos of the guys cooking.

Troop 39 also won first place for making a PBJ sandwich blindfolded and 2nd place for one of the other events (ribbon ilegible!)

Mr FitzSimons did a totally amazing job building a Monkey Bridge for the entire camp to enjoy.

The troop wrapped it up by coming 2nd in the campsite cleanliness category – losing by only one point to the 1st place team.  Note the the quartermaster, we were docked that one point for not having our propane tanks in crates (for stability).  We have the crates but they are bolted to the bottom of the trailer!  Great job Troop 39 and thanks to Mr Tomkins for building the camp gateway single-handedly which earned 5 bonus points for the troop.

Note to leaders – next time we are in Campbell, we need to camp on the sheltered side of camp – not on the peninsula!
