Local Cub and Boy Scouts coming to National Firearms Museum
Fairfax, Virginia - Dozens and dozens of groups request (and receive) a tour of the NRA National Firearms Museum every year. Historical societies, members of the military as well as a number of youth groups take advantage of the historical road map put together by our well versed curators. There will be a couple more enjoying that advantage this weekend.
"We've got two groups of Scouts coming this Saturday," said Senior Curator Doug Wicklund. "Tiger and Boy Scouts."
For those of you who've been out of the Scouting scene for as long as I have, Tiger Scouts are part of the Cub Scout lexicon. Found between the Bobcat and Wolf ranks, the Tiger Cub is a seven year old (or first grader) who has completed five Family, Den and Go See It (for a total of fifteen) activities. I'm guessing that this one will end up in the Go See It category.
