Scoutmaster note

The new Scouts are up and running.  Parents, please review your onboarding check list to see if you have any outstanding forms left to turn in.  Thank you to the adults and older Scouts who were willing to become Wilderness First Aid certified in March.  This helps improve the safety of our program and also provides good skills for life. Looking out in the near future we have a number of outings where additional adults are needed as drivers and participants.  More Scouts are signing up for outings than we have seat belts.  Also, the yearly Camporee is right around the corner.  Scouts need to sign up now so that the Troop can pay for their spot and lunch, and so we can get a good-sized campsite.  Many adults will be needed as drivers too, even if you can only volunteer to shuttle Scouts to/from camp.  For the older Scouts, we didn't win the Mt. Whitney trail permit lottery this year, but the PLC will be discussing two other High Adventure alternate plans.

We have a great Troop:  Scouts who want to go on outings, learn skills, and advance in rank.  Dedicated leaders to chase after the Scouts.  A dedicated parent committee to support the program.  And a great location in Southern California with access to the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains, a few National Forests, and that great California coastline.

See you at the meetings and on the trail.

Travel Light, Go Far!
