Scoutmaster update - February 19, 2012

NO MEETING this week…  Happy Winter Break!

This weekend a group of 10 Scouts and 5 adults hiked 12 miles along the Fifield-Cahill ridge trail with scenic views of Crystal Springs reservoir, Highway 280, and all the way across the Bay to Oakland.  This trail is not open to the general public and is by reservation only.  A real treat to hike through protected old growth Douglas Fir, evergreen, and coastal scrub.  See a picture of the group below.

Patrol Leader Election Results
Here are the results of the Patrol Leader elections last Tuesday:

Old Glory – Hollis Van Nice (PL), Run Thapanangkun (APL)
Happy ToastersNoah Jarvis (PL), Jonathan Shi (APL)
Vikings – Ben Arledge (PL), Henry Specker (APL)

Google Apps Migration
We have made heavy use of Google Docs for sign-ups this past year.  We will be taking the next step and migrate over to Google Apps (Google Groups, Google Sites, etc.) soon.  We are Beta testing with our guides, scouts, and parents from the incoming first year program and things look great so far.  Stay tuned for more details on this exciting transition.
