Noblesville Boy Scout Troop 101 participated in the district Winter Camporee Jan. 27 to 29 at Camp Kikthawenund. It was called the Super Bowl of Scouting due to Indianapolis hosting the Super Bowl this year. Scouts from Troop 101 and other troops in the Del-Mi District braved cold weather and snow to participate in football-themed scouting events, such as Last Second Kick, where Scouts competed for the fasted time at lashing together a field goal and kicking a football between the posts, and On the Field First Aid, where Scouts had to diagnose an injury and treat it correctly. Several Troop 101 patrols won awards for some of the stations.
