Hello, this is Kurt Spence – I have had the honor of serving Troop 184 as Scoutmaster for the last 5 years and am now an assistant scoutmaster in the Troop. My scouting interest started at age 7 – I was still too young to join my local wolf den (Pack 180 in Loveland), but I asked my father to let me go along with my older brother to Colorado State football’s Scout Day. Soon thereafter I joined Cub Scouts, and began creating great memories and friends. After earning the Webelos “All 15” (yup, just 15 back then!) and the Arrow of Light, I bridged to Troop 180 (Loveland). This was a very active troop that camped year-round and had a great learning atmosphere. My Eagle service project was the initial landscaping for the (then-new) Walt Clark middle school, and I was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout in 1982. My experience in Scouts positively shaped my life, and helped prepare me for my next chapters. After high school I headed off to Colorado State and entered the working world at Hewlett-Packard (where I am still employed today).
I married Sandra in 1991, and as our family began to grow, I renewed my interest in Scouts – this time as a leader. When my son Ian was ready for Tigers, I signed on as his den leader. I went on to serve as den leader and Cubmaster for Pack 180. Recently, I have been a member of committee for Troop 184, and I’ve completed my Wood Badge “ticket” in September 2010. I am excited to bring my passion for Scouts to this organization, and look forward to creating yet more great memories. Please contact me with any questions about our troop.
Yours in Scouting,
