Boy Scouts showed off their underwater basket weaving skills Sunday.

The scouts were at Square Lake in Stillwater. They dressed in full scuba gear and were 20 feet deep in the lake as they weaved the baskets.

Venture Crew Advisor Dave Tengdin said, "Everybody makes jokes about taking classes in underwater basket weaving. And we figured you know what, let's make sense, let's just have underwater basket weaving."

This is the second time the Boy Scouts have held an underwater basket weaving event.
