Today we had a great campout where we did a lot of fun things. The best part of the trip was competing to win the golden spatula which was won by the flaming phenix’s. Good job!
We are so excited to welcome the first girls to Troop 21!
At this court of honor we celebrated our three new Eagle Scouts: Max Winn, Aiden Currer, and Kema Allin! Congragulations on your great achievement!
Our New Scout Day was held on March 9th to welcome new Scouts and help them work on their Scout rank. Welcome to Troop 21!
Three generations of Scouting: Congratulations Kema on passing your Eagle Board of Review. You are Troop 21’s 148th Scout to earn BSA’s highest rank. You have worked hard and never gave up to achieve the goal we all strive for.
The Automotive Maintenance Merit Badge was hosted by Mr. Galassi. We got to do so many fun activities such as blowing an airbag. Thank you, Mr. Galassi.
Troop 21 had some winter fun at Hubert Eaton Scout Reservation near Lake Arrowhead. Fifteen Scouts attended the “Lost in Space” camp, where we sledded, had snowball fights, hit the archery and rifle ranges, climbed the rock wall, launched rockets, and sledded some more. We scored a second place overall ribbon (out of 9 troops) and our X-Wing (shout-out to Mr. Galassi for all his help) was honored as “the best wagon ever.”
Congratulations to Aidan Currer, who officially became Troop 21’s 147th Eagle Scout after he completed his Board of Review on Feb. 4. Here is Aidan and his parents with his Board.
Congratulations to Max Winn for earning his Eagle rank! Max earned Boy Scout’s highest rank on Jan. 28th and became the Troop’s 146th Eagle Scout. Here is Max after completing his Board of Review.
Troop 21 spent the morning at the Salvation Army in Pasadena stuffing food bags for families and setting up the Toy Shop for children. Thank you Mr. Cowing for arranging this excellent service project. Happy holidays!
Nine Scouts and four leaders participated. They started at Cloudburst Summit in the San Gabriel Mountains, near Mt. Waterman, and then took the Pacific Crest Trail to Cooper Canyon Trail Camp. After setting up camp, they hiked to the Cooper Canyon Waterfall. They then headed back to camp to play some games, filter water and make dinner. The following morning they struck camp, worked on some rank requirements and then hiked back up. The hike totaled 9 miles on the trail and had an elevation gain of about 1300 feet.
Congratulations to Luke and Thomas who were awarded their Eagle rank. They now join the long line of Troop 21 Eagle Scouts and we are extremely proud of their achievements. They are an inspiration to all of us in Troop 21 and hopefully many fellow Scouts will follow in their footsteps.
A hike to the fire lookout, rock climbing and more – T21 spent a weekend at Shady Cove camp near Big Bear. How’s the view down there?!
