Matt, a 7-Year veteran Falling Creek Camper from Asheville, NC, organized his Boy Scout Troop 8 in a Trailblazer project at camp today. They worked with Drew Boggan to clear out the 18 fairways of the disc golf course in order for it to be ready for use this summer. Matt did an excellent job setting it up and they all enjoyed pizza at the Dining Hall after the hard work. Falling Creek salutes Matt and the scouts and parents of Troop 8 from Biltmore United Methodist Church. Well done!
