Scouts cool it in forest COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) Lethbridge Troop 14 Boy Scouts had a invigorating winter camp out in the Crowsnest Pass Forest north of Coleman last weekend. The Scouts, under the supervision of Scoutmaster Lloyd Carefoot of Lethbridge, arrived in Coleman Saturday morning and visited the Coleman Scout Hall where Larry Nelson, supervisor of the Coleman Junior Forest Wardens, met the scouts and gave them a short course of instruction in snow shoeing, including how to attach the snowshoes with a squaw hitch. The scouts were also provided with 15 pair of snowshoes from the Junior Forest Wardens. The troop of 25 then headed up the Kananaskis road to a selected spot on the Frank Capron property where the scouts in groups of four and five set up their individual bivouacs and prepared for an eventful weekend. Snowshoe races, snowshoe hikes, setting up bivouacs by using forked sticks in place of ropes, making camp fire without the use of paper, cooking their own meals and camp cleanliness formed part of the campont. Cookout Tony Blain watches hungrily as Lloyd Carefoot prepares steak.

Plans carefully detailed by Flatlands district scouters and officers include additional lunch services for the visiting troops.
