Scoutmaster update - January 14, 2013

posted Jan 15, 2013, 12:34 AM by Brent Browning   [ updated Jan 15, 2013, 12:46 AM ]
This past weekend 21 Scouts had a great day indoor rock climbing at Planet Granite. They learned how to tie in, basic climbing commands, and were challenged with climbs ranging from 5.2 up to 5.11! Photos are available on along with photos from the snow camping trip last weekend. On Sunday we honored Damien Amzallag, Tim Cyron, Jesse Mayer, and Chas Wilken at their Eagle Court of Honor. Congratulations guys! 

Tomorrow night we have four things happening: 
  1. International potluck dishes 
  2. Death Valley patrol planning – part 2 
  3. First year make-up sessions 
  4. Boards of Review 
Death Valley Reminders
  • Departure – Remember to be at LAUMC at 3:30pm SHARP for a 4:00pm departure 
  • Weather – Highs in the upper 60s. Lows in the high 30s to low 40s. Be prepared for cool evenings/mornings! 
  • Packing list – See
  • Pack smart – space is at a premium, all your gear should fit into a backpack or single duffle bag 
  • Transport – Each car needs to carry gear for people in that car (patrol boxes & stoves go in trucks) 
  • Electronics – Allowed in cars for the rides, not allowed in tents or while hiking (cameras okay) 
  • Planning – Patrols will meet again tomorrow night to finalize plans for the weekend 
  • Food – Shop for your food and consolidate into one cooler/patrol and as few bags/boxes possible 
  • Sleds – We cannot take a large amount of sleds, one per patrol is plenty 
Coming Soon
