Swamping for the old Scout


LINDSEY WASSON / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Ethan Swalwell and Robert Gall, both 13, laugh as they paddle their swamped canoe as part of the process to earn their canoeing merit badge for Boy Scout Troop 166 at Matthews Beach in Seattle on Thursday. The troop, led by Scoutmaster Bill Montgomery since 1961, is preparing for a 50-mile canoe trip on Eastern Washington's Lake Roosevelt in August. In his time as a scoutmaster, Montgomery has trained more than 100 Eagle Scouts, including former Washington Gov. Gary Locke.
