Scoutmaster update - May 7, 2012

This weekend 31 scouts and 8 adults went camping at beautiful Big Basin Redwoods State Park.  The weather was fantastic and all had a good time.  While first year scouts worked diligently on skills with Troop Guides in camp an adventurous group of mountain bikers rode 20-miles from Cutter Scout Reservation down to Año Nuevo, stopping for lunch at the beach along the way.  We had great food all weekend including a Cinco de Mayo dinner on Saturday followed by piñatas, banana boats for dessert, and then a fun game of “Zorch”.  First year scouts completed many requirements and are now all very close to Tenderfoot, way to go!
