300+ Scouts brave today's weather for annual Freeze-out

What are Cub Scouts to do when the weather is too cold to fire BB guns for target practice? Follow the scouting motto and be prepared with a backup plan.

“The BB guns don’t work because it’s so cold, we have to use slingshots and dog food,” said Kurt Hilderbrand, chairman of the Boy Scouts of America’s Greater Western Reserve Council, Whispering Pines District. “Sometimes you just have to improvise a little.”

The target practice was just one of the events that made up the Cub Scouts’ annual Freeze-Out, which took place Saturday at Camp Stambaugh on Leffingwell Road. More than 300 scouts, ages 7 to 10, participated, Hilderbrand said. The district includes Mahoning County and Hubbard.
