Scouts from Simsbury Boy Scout troop 175 spent the weekend in Springfield Vermont this November participating in the troops annual “Mission Profile” weekend.
Here is what the scouts were promised for the weekend:
You will build, create, solve, get wet, get lost, hide, sail, orienteer, improvise, walk and run many miles, trade, cook, search, decode and finally solve a very complex puzzle that has been developed especially for this terrain and group. The entire time you will be competing with many other teams and your ability to gather clues will depend on your expertise in winning and/or trading things you have to trade. Wet suits, radio systems, Ghillie suits, headlamps with red light settings, camouflage, face paint are all encouraged. Math majors, code crackers and engineers will be in demand. Big guys with strength and little guys with guts will be heroes. Stealth movement is critical. This may be one of the most challenging days of your life
They were not disappointed.
Congratulations to Team 1 on your win! Team 1 members were Lucas Watson, Kyle Pilon, Owen Lawry and Tim Houghton.
