Trip Report: Mt Umunhum – 2310

Every year, the Troop has a tradition of an October shooting sports weekend / car camping trip to Mt Umunhum. We partner with a combination of our own trained and qualified adults, and a local Venturer Crew with similar skills and capabilities to allow scouts and adults exposure to archery and rilfe shooting.

This year, the tradition of adults cooking up a big shared BBQ dinner was maintained, along with the scouts leading in an (always “uncomfortably exciting”) Iron Chef breakfast.

Emily C last night & webelos open house – 231016

Excitement and poignancy in the air, as this night saw the departure from the Troop after founding female Youth member, ex Serpents Patrol Leader, and two-year SPL Emily C, had her last night with the Troop before aging out.

Thanks Emily for contributing so much to the Troop over the last 8 years, from your first 50 miler in the Hi Sierra, to your work as a Staff Member at Camp Hi-Sierra.

To offset the departure, it was appropriately, a night for potential new Troop 260 members to join us for a Webelo’s open house, where the Troop ran through its standard, but always well received, stations on knives, fire, games and stoves (hot choc!).
