The Boy Scouts of Troop 146 Jackson Twp. participated in a curling clinic held by the Anthracite Curling Club of Wilkes-Barre. The Scouts learned about the equipment, scoring, terminology and strategy involved in curling, sometimes referred to as “chess on ice.” They also played a 30-minute on-ice practice session. The troop will petition the Boy Scouts of America to request Curling be added to the list of 133 current merit badges.From left, are Kevin Allen, Dan Allen, Christo Huntington, Anthony Huntington, T.
