Scoutmaster update - April 29, 2012

posted Apr 29, 2012, 11:38 PM by Brent Browning   [ updated Jun 16, 2012, 11:43 PM ]

I have heard reports that our Scouts survived the Zombie attacks.  21 scouts and 3 adults attended the Zomb-o-ree and I look forward to hearing more about it.  Today 7 scouts and 6 adults rode their mountain bikes at Arastradero Reserve (see picture below).  We had lots of fun at “The Bowl” as witnessed by a number of skinned knees and elbows…

Main Troop
We have several bike-related outings this month (5/8 Ice Cream ride and 5/15 Mont Bello ride).  If you plan on riding you must bring your bike this Tuesday for a bike inspection.  First year scouts are not eligible for the ice cream ride but those going on Monte Bello must bring their bikes and the Senior Patrol will inspect before/after the meeting.

Big Basin / Cutter-to-the-Sea – May 4-6, 2012
We only have 1 spot left for this campout!  Remember to turn in your payment to Mr. Przywara on Tuesday.

NOTE: Campers for Big Basin please stick around for a quick 30 minute planning session after the meeting.                                                                   

Point Reyes Backpacking – May 19-20, 2012
Signups are still open for this advanced beginner backpacking trip (sorry first years) in Point Reyes camping at Wildcat Camp, roughly 12 miles round trip.

Annual Planning
Please take a moment and fill out our survey:

NOTE: Green Bar scouts should be working on their homework for the mandatory planning session Friday May 11th from 5:30-9:30pm.
