Five boys from Barranca Cub Scout Pack 229 attended Saturday’s basketball game between the Albuquerque Thunderbirds and the Utah Flash at Tingley Coliseum in Albuquerque. Each scout received a free ticket as a reward for selling more than $100 worth of popcorn this past fall.

Eighteen boys from the pack received this honor, but only five could attend the game. They were Derek Kober, Ignatius Kuropatwinski, Joshua Posada, Joseph Sarrao and Daniel Sarrao. Den leaders John Sarrao and James Kuropatwinski also attended, along with three other parents and some siblings.  Before the game, all Cub Scouts in attendance participated in the “Star Spangled Banner” opening ceremony.
