To the Editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to say congratulations to Carrollton Boy Scout Troop 141 and Scoutmaster Mark Walters for winning the Buckeye Council, Netawotwes District Klondike Derby held Jan. 19 at Camp Tuscazoar. This is the first time in recent memory that Carrollton has carried home the Senior Trophy from the derby.

The Carrollton scouts beat out scouts from the area, including teams New Philadelphia, Dover, Malvern and Gnadenhutten as well as Jackson Twp., Stark County. This is quite an achievement, testing outdoor skills and winter survival skills that include cooking, hiking and search and rescue.

I would also like to congratulate my Senior Team from Troop 143, Carrollton, for their third place win in the competition. The “Angry Bird Patrol” put a serious effort forth and came home with the Bronze award. My hat’s off to all who participated, including the Webelos. We had over 275 boys at the event.

John H. Barnett
Troop 143
Carrollton, OH
