Scoutmaster update - March 12, 2012

Wow, what a jam packed Scouting weekend!  The weather was just perfect.  Scouts and adults: attended the District awards dinner, backpacked Black Mountain, sorted items at the Shelter Network warehouse, assisted and spoke at Scout Sunday, and went on a 5-mile day-hike.  In between events I had the pleasure of seeing three of our Scouts perform in leading roles at the MVHS musical “Urinetown”, congratulations to Brian DeAngelis, John Wilken, and Chas Wilken.

District Dinner Awards
Congratulations to Ben Jeffries.  He received the BSA National Certificate of Merit for saving his 7-year old brother’s life when he choked on a candy.

Congratulations to Caelan Conant, Nathan Desai, and Jesse Mayer.  They received 2011 Scout of the Year awards.

Congratulations to Alan Carr, Allison Frankel, and Jeff Mayer.  They received the District Flame of Leadership award for their contributions to our troop.  Allison was our health form coordinator for many years and coordinated many outings.  Alan Carr is an ASM, Patrol Advisor, and merit badge counselor.  He has been very active assisting with the Colorado 50-miler, Philmont 2010, and Camp Oljato.  Jeff Mayer is an ASM, Patrol Advisor, and merit badge counselor.  He recently led our Florida Sea Base high adventure trip and has been in charge of Mountain Man Rendezvous for several years now.
