Wings 'N Wheels 2015



Come help us at this really fun fundraising event for Angel Flight East (who transports children in need to specialized hospitals and doctors for treatment). Wings 'N Wheels is a Vintage Aircraft and Antique Auto Show at Wings Field in Blue Bell.  Troop 98 will help set up the dining area and trash boxes, keep them clean during the day, sell cold water from mobile wagons, and take down at the end of the day.  This year we are building and "staffing" a rope bridge for participants to walk across. Help us show off our Scout Pioneering skills (and practice for the Philadelphia Encampent in October).

Here's what you (and your family) can do at this event:

  • Check out lots of cool planes and antique cars.  The "warbirds" are authentic World War II planes; they're big and LOUD!
  • Try out the aircraft simulator and check out a fully operating drone.
  • Go for an airplane ride in a small plane around Blue Bell.  It costs $35 and lasts about 15 minutes (be sure to sign up early, because they sell out!).  It's amazing what you can see when you're not too high in the air!
  • Check out the kids activities and displays.
  • Eat yummy food, including buffalo wings prepared by various restaurants that are competing in the "Wing-Off".
And Scouts can look and be impressive in their Scout uniform as they help out a really worthwhile event.


Please sign up for a couple of hours by entering your name in this  SIGNUP SHEET.  In addition to a lot of fun, the time you spend volunteering counts towards your service hours!  Check out the TROOP 98 PICTURES from 2013.
