Troop 75 was renamed to Troop 775:

                        There already was a Troop 75 in the Blackhawk Area Council.

                        It was chartered before the US Grant Council's Troop 75 and got to retain their identity as Troop 75.

                        The US Grant Council Troop 75 added a 7 to their number and became Troop 775 to retain the prior US Grant                                   Council Troop 75 identity.
