Troop 57 Spring Cycling Outing (March 17 & April 20)
On Sunday, March 17, we’ll do a short (but challenging) 18-mile loop that will take us
to a local historical landmark for lunch. Believe it or not, the Alpine Inn in Portola
Valley (a.k.a. Zott’s) was the site of the first ever email. (I’m sure the email was about
a T57 outing.) The point of this ride is not just to enjoy a tasty burger in a nice setting,
but also to test your leg on some nearby hills, so that you’ll know if you’re ready for
April’s big ride. You should consider it as a qualifying ride for the Golden Gate ride. See flyer for details.
On Saturday, April 20, we’ll get up early and take CalTrain, with our bikes, to San Francisco. From there, we will ride past AT&T Park, along the Embarcadero, over the Golden Gate Bridge, and then home to Palo Alto via Golden Gate Park and Crystal Springs. At 55 miles, this ride isn’t easy, but it’s quite doable, and something you’ll always remember. You will need a road bike, and 1st and 2nd year scouts who want to do this ride should also do the March ride, just to get a taste of climbing up some hills.
If you’re interested in either ride, email Gordon Craig at email@example.com
Baylands Service Day April 20th
Come help with native plant restoration at Palo Alto’s own Baylands. We’ll meet at the Sailing Station at 10:00 on April 20 to assist the Parks and Recreation Rangers with projects to restore native plants and remove invasive species. Pizza will be provided. If you are planning to come to help out, please let Eric Schuur know.
See flyer for details!
Shotgun Sports Trap and Skeet Outing (May 11, 2013)
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 provided.
Angel Island Hike (May 11, 2013)
The best hike of 2012 is back by popular demand. Ride a ferry out to historic Angel Island, climb to the highest point, and enjoy the magnificent scenery from the middle of San Francisco Bay. After the ferry ride back, we’ll stroll over to Ghirardelli and have a world famous ice cream sundae. The route will fulfill the requirements for a 10 mile hike for the Hiking merit badge.
