A group of 9 intrepid backpackers set off to complete the Skyline To The Sea Trail on the 27th. Two days into the three day trip the weather won out. Rain and wind cut the trip short but this determined group plans to complete this hike soon. To the beach or bust!.

Our annual Bike Trip and Golden Skillet Cook-off took place on the 21st-22nd with 16 scouts attending. Three patrols took part in the cook-off and the final results were a tie. The menus consisted of Hawaiian, Italian and Mexican food-great job by all the patrols.

The troop attended the Winter Awareness Seminar put on by the OA on the 7th. The scouts and adults who attended learned about camping in cold weather and how to stay dry and warm while doing so. Several Troop 103 scouts who are OA members also participated as instructors at this event.
