Austin Bell's Eagle Project

Posted on Sep 17 2014 - 1:52pm

Austin is building a Bike Repair Station at Hillandale Park for his Eagle Project.

This bike repair station will have multiple tools to fix anything from a flat tire to adjusting your gears. People will be able to come up to the station and be capable of repairing almost any issue with their bike. This stand will have the tools attached by cables so they will be able to be enjoyed by people for years down the road. Along with the repair station I plan to film a video on how to change a flat tire by demonstrating how to myself. A biker will be able to scan it on their smartphone and the link will take them straight to the video. 

If you would like to contribute to his project, click here.

Last weekend, we had our annual Troop Planning Camping Trip.  The scouts came up with some great meeting themes and monthly events!  We still have to "nail down" some details but I am excited about the plans!  The attached excel spreadsheet has the details.  If you are interested in helping out on any of these events/themes, please let me know.
