On the 23rd of October, Troop 75 arrived at Webelos Woods ready for some monkey business.  While other troops were still sleeping, we were busy setting up our famous Monkey Bridge, which attracted the longest line of any other Troops’ station together with our mini-model campsite.  The inevitable crowds of Scouts tried to pour through our gates.   We were ready!  Our greeters had sad news for the impatient Webelos Scouts—our station was to be visited after another station.  The Scouts of Troop 75 had the Monkey Bridge lines controlled due to the good planning.  Eventually, every Scout got to try our Monkey Bridge.  Not every Scout was able to cross the bridge.  It takes skill and determination to complete the crossing.  During lunch, repairs were made and stomachs were fed.  As the day came to an end, tents were set up and Troop 75 monkey business just had to end.  Everyone worked together to take down the bridge carefully.  Over three hundred Webelos Scouts traveled over our Monkey Bridge.  When everyone was winding down for the day, the decision was made to pack up and head home.  Troop 75 Monkey Bridge was a fantastic success again this year.
