Troop 57 April News (2015) NEW!

Join Troop 57 in its first ever trip to China Camp State Park on the weekend of May 2nd. We will leave the morning of May 2nd and return on the afternoon of May 3rd. China Camp is a beautiful coast region in Southern Marin County that has great history dating back to the Gold Rush, stunning views of the bay, and lots of local wildlife. The park also offers amazing beach camping and scenic cliff views! Additionally, requirements for the Eagle-required Environmental Science Merit Badge will be offered. Sign up before April 16th to capture this amazing opportunity!

A shotgun outing for both beginning and experienced shooters!  We’ll shoot both trap and skeet, with instructors helping scouts accomplish their merit badge shooting proficiency, if desired, or just improving their scores at these target shooting games.  Classroom instruction covering safe gun handling practices and many of the merit badge requirements will be reviewed before shooting.  Come out and tune up your game!  Shotguns, shells and safety equipment are all included.

Right now our Golden Gate bike ride is scheduled for April 26.  It’s 50 miles long, and a tough ride.  If your legs and bike aren’t ready for it, it won’t be fun.  That’s just the way cycling is.  Because it is 50 miles, with some hills, and because Mr. Craig wants those who go to have a good time, he'll only take scouts who have either done a 50-mile ride previously, or completed the qualification ride that I led in January.

If you have done neither, but really want to go on the ride, Mr. Craig can schedule another qualification ride, but you need to let him know this week for scheduling purposes.  The qualification ride is 25 miles, and hilly.  It’s doable, but you’d want to feel confident in your abilities, and have a light, well-functioning bike.

The most recognizable mountain in California's wine country, Mount St. Helena rises sharply above the valley just north of Calistoga. At 4,343', Mount St. Helena's summit overlooks Lassen Peak, the Sierra Nevada mountains, Snow Mountain, Mount Diablo, Mount Tamalpais, and the Pacific Ocean. The route to the peak starts in Robert Louis Stevenson State Park, where the famous author of Treasure Island and Kidnapped honeymooned in 1880.

Lots of eager kids across the country participate in Boy Scouts when they are young, drawn by trips, outdoor adventures and maybe even the marshmallows around the campfire. But as they get older, sports, friends and other interests often take over, and only about 7 percent of boys persist through the challenging process of earning the Eagle Scout rank when they are in high school.
