September-October “Where Am I?” winner announced


We asked, and you responded big time.

After presenting Scouting magazine readers with a mystery location, complete with a photo and description, we asked a simple question: "Where Am I?" The feature appeared in our September-October issue. (If you missed it, you can read it here.)

An impressive 577 of you knew that the correct answer was the Cimarroncito Reservoir at Philmont Scout Ranch. We took those 577 answers, gave each a number, and then used a random number generator to come up with the winner: correct answer No. 151. That number belonged to Jim Weeden, a committee chairman with Troop 80 in the Mecklenburg (N.C.) County Council. 

Along with the glory of winning, Weeden receives a $100 gift card to the BSA Supply Division, which he can use at his local Scout Shop or at Congratulations!

If you're interested in giving our "Where Am I?" reader contest a try, check out the November-December edition of the quiz here. You have until Jan. 4, 2010, to submit your answer. Good luck!
