         40 Scouts and Leaders from the Long-
         house Council celebrated the 100th Anni-
         versary of the Boy Scouts of America as
         members of our council’s 2010 Philmont

         The members of the expedition departed
         Syracuse on July 17 and returned August
         1. Prior to arriving at Philmont Scout
         Ranch, Cimarron, New Mexico, the
         scouts and leaders enjoyed touring popu-
         lar sites in Colorado which included, the
         Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods
         and White Water Rafting on the Arkan-
         sas River.

         While at Philmont, the four crews experi-
         enced high adventure scouting in the
         mountains of New Mexico that included
         horseback riding, panning for gold, rock
         climbing and rappelling, a sunrise hike
         up Philmont’s famous trademark Tooth
         of Time and 11 days of backpacking in
         some of the best mountain scenery that
         the southwest has to offer.

         The Scout Troops represented in this
         summer’s Philmont Expedition included
         Troop 1276-Eastwood, Troop 21-Auburn,
         Troop 59-Weedsport, Troop 23-
         Watertown, Troop 777-Parish, Troop 152
