Sept. 2021 – Paddle Outing to CC Cragin reservoir

This was an overnight “paddle-craft” outing to CC Cragin reservoir where Troop 323 and 3323 put in (to the water) in the late morning of Saturday, Sept.18, and paddle 2 miles to Our campsite. We stay overnight on the shore of the reservoir and paddle back to the take-out on Sunday.

All youth and adult participants had completed the BSA Swim test and be classified as a “Swimmer” to participate in this outing.

Before participating in the paddle-craft outing all youth and adult participants had to demonstrate the ability to control a boat adequately and to return to shore at will.

The Paddle Outing was well attended with 17 scouts and 7 adults participating. The event was filled with fishing swimming splashing and of course paddling.

Later in the afternoon, it rained making for a wet dinner experience. Many scouts took cover in natural rock shelters where they cooked and ate their meals. In the end, all returned without any major incidents.

Thanks, Mr. and Mrs. Geer for organizing this memorable event!!!

Sept 2021 Canoeing Workshop

For those who needed some practice time in a canoe or needed to demonstrate the ability to return to shore, The Troop held a paddle craft workshop on Sunday, September 12th at Lake Pleasant.

The plan was to start at 9:00 am and go until noon (or earlier if everyone is able to meet the requirement).  It was an “open house” type format, so come as you are able.

We  met at Lake Pleasant near the Two Cows Cove. We where down by the shoreline north of Desert Tortoise Rd.  We had have 5 canoes and life jackets for those that need them.
