Lo­cal Scouts go bowl­ing

Calhoun Times - - GORDONLIFE - Staff Re­ports

Boy Scout Troop 22 went bowl­ing for their first meet­ing of 2018 at the Cal­houn Bowl­ing Cen­ter. The rea­son for meet­ing there was to cel­e­brate a suc­cess­ful 2017 Pop­corn Fundrais­ing event.

Each year, Boy Scouts of Amer­ica holds a pop­corn sales cam­paign dur­ing which Scouts try to sell a spec­i­fied amount which helps sup­port their troop, aids their lo­cal Coun­cil in sup­port­ing the sum­mer camp pro­gram, as well as, ben­e­fit­ting the na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tion.

The Scouts them­selves learn sales­man­ship and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills, gain con­fi­dence and achieve a sense of ac­com­plish­ment. Scouts who met their sales goals were re­warded with free games and the Cal­houn Bowl­ing Cen­ter waived the nor­mal shoe rental fees for all par­tic­i­pants.

Pic­tured are Scouts and par­ents dur­ing the first round of play and Ven­turer Scout Scott Beu­tel walk­ing a younger Scout through the ba­sics of grip, stride, swing, and re­lease of the ball. Every­one, ex­pe­ri­enced bowlers and novices, had a fun evening bowl­ing and help­ing each other with tips and ad­vice. Boy Scout Troop 22 is spon­sored by Cal­houn First United Methodist Church.
