Thanks to all the scouts and parents of 102 that helped raise flags and put smaller ones by headstones for Memorial Day 2015.  With cubs from 3102  and parents we had around 20 individuals.  We also raised the designated flag for Patrick Henry, with a short ceremony with the group.  Please see troop FB page for some photos.

We are in the process of working on updates and improvements to the site.  Hopefully will implement our troop scout Webmaster in the process.  In the meantime, please be patient.  Some elements of the site will be added that will only be available to registered members.  I think that the registration process has been repaired so that you can sign up, subject to approval.  Only active members of the unit will be allowed in those areas.  Meanwhile basic public postings will still be viewable.

The troop is taking orders for fresh holiday greenery from the Mickman Company, a major supplier of these beautiful decorations or gifts.  They can be shipped directly to friends and loved ones through this online program.  The cutoff date for shipping is December 12th.
 
If you care to help me raise funds for my scouting activities, please visit htttp://www.mickmanholidaygifts.com/  and use our troop code (TR102CA002), to get $3 off and $5 is then donated to our troop as well! 
 
You may designate a specific current scout by letting Mr. Fish know, or simply order and it will go directly to the troop fund.
 
Thank you.

Pine Mountain Summit Campout

  • Written by Mr. Wes Fish

     We ended up with 5 scouts for our campout Friday through Sunday morning to Pine Mountain Summit, along with 3 adults.  We did one organized hike, and the boys and Brian explored around the campground, enjoying the views and finding numerous rocks to climb and interesting things.  They also braved a couple of cold nights without being allowed a campfire, which sent them to bed early both nights.  Temp at about 7:30AM on Saturday was 42 with a breeze, and on Sunday morning 39.6, but no breeze.  Needless to say, no really early risers, even with early tenting.

     Won and Cameron did well in completing parts of the cooking MB, and others completed elements of advancement in cooking as well.  Besides chasing lizards, wood chopping was a major activity, and even Brandon did a little.  Since we could not have a fire, it was mostly fun.  When the restriction is lifted, someone will have a nice pile of pre-cut wood.  Mikey and Henry reviewed their books while there too, and both are very near a board.  While there were few others overnight, quite a few day trippers passed through, mostly "boulderer's and day hikers, as well as a couple birding.  Had a ranger visit Sunday morning to make sure we had not had a fire and checking the area.

     Other than the cold, it was a beautiful weekend with lots of stars at night, and gorgeous views.  Though we had a brief cloud sitting experience around 8AM on Saturday when the sun's heating caused the clouds in the valley to rise and drift over us.  Hopefully have a few photos soon.
