Flintlocks Repair Dan Beard Treehouse

The Flintlocks repaired the Dan Beard Treehouse at Camp Somers in Mt. Allamuchy Scout Reservation over the winter. The Flintlocks are retired Scouters who volunteer every Thursday at Camp Winnebago. All it took was some lumber, some screws and some elbow grease.

Since the Flintlocks are all volunteers with outstanding construction skills, it saves the council from hiring outside contractors to do the repairs. A small group go up to Mt. Allamuchy on Wednesday to work. This group includes Al Thomas, Frank Wallace, Chris Kennett and Harold Bork. Most of the men had fathers who helped the pack or troop when they were in the Scouts as lads; now they have sons and grandchildren who were or are in the Scouts.
