Tired Iron Picture

The purr of the engine, the roar of the crowd, and the smell of food cooking at the food stand told you that this year's Tired Iron was ready to start!
The 2018 Tired Iron consisted of 2 weekends of racing fun!!! The Jurassic Classic 1 had an 80 year age difference over the spread of the racers with the youngest being 15 and the oldest being 95 years old.
Other races included the Jurassic Classic II, the Fun Run, Heavy Metal, The Wet Iron, The Classic, and the Powder Puff Race.
Events included the Vintage Sled Show & Shine, Moose Turd Bowling, and the ever popular Spring Ping Fling (Ball Drop).
Congratulations to our very own Sebastian Boice for winning 1st in his Class and Peoples' Choice in the Show & Shine!
The Midnight Sun Council would like to thank the Tired Iron Committee and staff for holding this great event each year. The Tired Iron helps to support the Midnight Sun Council each year by donating part of the proceeds from the races and through radio advertising.

Friends of Scouting

The Friends of Scouting Family campaign has kicked off this year. The Family Campaign asks families to consider a contribution to the Midnight Sun Council BSA. A limited edition 2018 Council Shoulder Strip Patch will be given to those who contribute $100.00 to the campaign. If a unit meets its goal, the unit receives discounts at the Midnight Sun Council Summer Camps. If they achieve 10% increase above their goal, they receive a free night at Lost Lake camp for the entire event.  This year, the Family CoChairman for the Campaign are Bill and Cindy Wright. They are members of Troop 92, chartered to the Kiwanis Club of Fairbanks, and in 2016 their son Kieran earned his Eagle. If you ask them about Scouting they will have plenty of great examples of what their family has experienced over the years in Troop 92. Please schedule an appointment for the Family 2018 Unit Friends of Scouting campaign with Bill and Cindy Wright. Their contact information is (907-450-9889 cell) or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.



New Holland Tractor

Thanks to a generous donation from the Minto Family, a grant from the Stroeker Foundation, and another grant from the Rasmuson Foundation, the Midnight Sun Council will be the proud owners of a New Holland tractor, a first in the 58 year history of our Council.  The tractor will be used to plow, mow, move heavy items, and more.  The "Minto Mobile" is on order and we hope to have it soon.
