On the 26th, some of the scouts of Troop 103 camped overnight at Mission & Niles Blvd to be ready for Troop 103’s: “PARK WHILE YOU SHOP TILL YOU DROP” parking lot. This was for the annual Niles Flea Market and was also our troop’s BIG fund raiser.

On 8/12 – 8/18 our Venture Patrol took a 40 mile “STROLL” through the Yosemite area of the Sierras. They practiced their “Bear Bag Hanging Techniques” and enjoyed stargazing at night.

On 8/12 Troop 103 attended an Oakland A’s game compliments of the troop’s sponsor (Warm Springs Rotary Club). There was a tailgate party before the game where the troop and the Rotary Club had a chance to mix. Then Troop 103 provided the opening flag ceremony at the beginning of the game. Way to go Troop 103! PS: The A’S WON!
