On the morning of Mar. 26th our troop held this year’s Spring Church Cleanup at All Saints Lutheran Church. We had 17 people who came to help. We did many small housekeeping jobs, alongside some other larger jobs, like power washing the church courtyard. We cleaned the concrete floor, the path to the reflection point, cleaned the playground and windows, and moved all the tables to the correct rooms
The Troop would like to thank CJ Corso for organizing and running the event. Also, all the adults who helped, including Ms. Newell, Ms. Corso, and Mr. Geer. Our final thanks are to all the scouts who showed up to help clean the church.
Troop3/323 anual crossover outing
This annual outing is used to welcome new scouts into the troop. Held at Bumblebee Ranch, the kids camped in tents or hammocks while the adults had the option to stay in the ranch house for the outing. There were 26 scouts and 32 adults this year. The ranch is huge, equipped with a large field and a pond. The older scouts taught skills classes to the new scout. A group of scouts collected firewood for the big bonfire later that night. As the day progressed, the new scout patrol was created and a patrol leader was elected. The Blue foxes had their first patrol meeting, and soon enough, it was dark out. The crossover ceremony began with a large bonfire being lit, and the new scouts crossing over the rope bridge bridge. The bridge is a very important tradition, and it signifies a new scout crossing from the pack to the troop. This outing was fun for both new scouts, and older ones.
This year’s Scouting For Food was a major success
with Troop 3/323 and pack 323 gathering over 2,200 pounds of food!!!
Throughout Saturday, morning Feb 5th, patrols went around the community picking up bags of food. We donated all of the collected food to Mom’s Pantry. They are very appreciative of the food.
Thanks to all the scouts, and adults who participated. Also, give thanks to all the people who donated to Scouting For Food
This years fun meeting
was helpd at the Troop meeting at Gecko Climbing gym on December 14th. Scouts from both troops challanged themselves on vareous climbing walls and vareous dificulty ratings. Thanks to Mr and Mrs Geer for organizing this event and have a safe and happy holiday season everyone.
The 2021 bike outing was different than past years
due to complications in obtaining a campsite at Mcdowell Mountain Park. Rather than the traditional 2-day event, The PLC opted to hold a single day ride of about 18 miles that started and ended at the Brown Ranch Trailhead. The event offeed challanging trails with many alternative options for riders of all skills. The Troops are looking forward to the 2022 outing and a return to a weekend long event.
