The troop had our first Eagle Court of Honor on Saturday the 12th. Jeff H. was presented his Eagle Rank with family, friends, troop members, and dignitaries looking on.

This months outing was to Pinnacles National Monument on the 4th-6th. A hike, part of the Rim of the Bay, was the planned event. Heat was the troops enemy on this weekend. Initially planning to do a 10 mile hike to also complete one of the Hiking Merit Badge requirements the hike had to be shortened to doing just the Rim-of-the-Bay loop. The complete story tells of TJ’s fall and cut knee, two scouts doing a good turn and helping a lost little girl find her way, and a joke played on the Cub Master of a pack camping nearby. Sounds like despite the heat everyone had a good time and will have many memories of this outing.
