TMS comes back to win

Thermopolis Middle School
came away with a 40-30 win
at their rst game, against
Lander Saturday, though it
wasnt easy.
Coach CJ Scholl stated, It
was a great hard fought game.
We were down 6-24 at one point
but the boys came together
great and worked hard to get
back in the game. Once we got
back into the game the momen-

tum was in their hands and

they did fantastically. I was
very proud of the pride the boys
showed by not letting the score
get to them. Both Offense and
Defense performed very well.
On Tuesday, the boys traveled to take on Rocky Mountain at Basin. Though they
found themselves down 6-34
at the half, they didnt allow
another point the rest of the

game and were able to come

back and nish 30-34.
Coach Scholl stated, The
boys fought very hard, but we
dug ourselves into too big of a
hole. He was happy the team
never stopped ghting and
gave their all.
The middle school will next
take on Worland at home,
Thursday, Sept. 22 beginning
at 4:30 p.m.

This weekend, expect to see

start arriving, and there will
be plenty of activity on Saturday, including pellet gun shooting, archery, canoes, the Ropes
course at Thermopolis Middle
School, rie range shooting,
rappelling, skill stations and
the mystery contest.

up at various locations around

town, with a bus to take Scouts
to and from each. For the mystery event, Gibbel explained he
comes up with an activity that
nobody else knows about. The
Boy Scouts come prepared to
take on the event, which they
have an hour to complete. Gibbel added it might be any task
up to First Class, the fourthhighest rank of Scouts.
This is Gibbels eighth year
doing the Jamboree, and he
hopes to have about 500 people show up. He noted this
is the biggest Camporee type
event in Wyoming. While he
started it himself, Gibbel has
since received Councils sup-

port, which helped things run

much more efciently. Gibbel
also expressed his appreciation to the various organizations around town that provide
space for events, as well as the
Kiwanis for providing a Saturday morning breakfast and all
the volunteers who help make
the weekend a success.
As the trip is an overnight
one, Cub Scouts should have a
parent with them. Gibbel added many parents come just to
watch and support their boys.
He encourages parents to go
and check out the town, maybe do some shopping or have
lunch, as they are not required
to stay at the campsite all day.
