Cub Scouts in Pack 170 of Marianna kicked off a new season of scouting with their first meeting of the school year at the First Presbyterian Church. The unit of study was "Building Muscles", with scouts learning and participating in a variety of exercises and cooperative games. Bear Scout Calen Sims spoke to the scouts about ways to get in good physical shape, how to keep from being dehydrated, and the importance of proper nutrition and rest for your body.
Special guest for the meeting was Marianna High School softball player Allison Hutton, who showed the scouts several stretching exercises and helped them learn other low-impact exercises to warm up their muscles.
Bear Scout leader Mary Ann Hutton instructed the scouts on a number of different individual and team activities, including the foot push; one-legged hand wrestle; seated back-to-back push; pull over; hand wrestle, and many others. They also had a crab relay; 30-yard dash; kangaroo relay; gorilla relay; baseball throw, and the standing long jump.
Following the meeting, Cub Scouts sang "Happy Birthday" to leader Mary Ann Hutton and enjoyed birthday cake and a time of fellowship. To learn more about scouting, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 209-2818.
