On the 13th we held our last Court of Honor for 1999. Three scouts advanced in rank and 19 Merit Badges were awarded along with several other awards.

A group of hearty souls travelled to Chesebourgh Scout Camp in the Santa Cruz Mountains on the 10th for a weekend outing. The primary purpose was to work on rank advancements. The older scouts worked diligently getting a large number of rank requirements completed for the younger scouts and managed to find time for several wide area games. It was cold at night but we all stayed warm by the fire telling stories and doing skits.

The Troop attended Winter Camp Awareness Training on Saturday the 4th. Three of our scouts were part of the OA staff conducting the training. A small group of scouts also joined our sponsor the Rotary Club of Warm Springs at their first annual toy drive.
