Mt Madonna, May 6-7
By Josh

This weekend, we went to Mt. Madonna to camp overnight. We had beans and hamburgers for dinner and built a fire to roast s'mores. While we roasted the marshmallows, we sang campfire songs such as Drunken Sailor and Bring Back My Bonnie To Me. I camped outside without a tent along with Percy and Allie. At around 5:30 am, we all got up to go on a sunrise hike. When we got back, we made baggie eggs and played kubb, a game in which you throw sticks at blocks. I had fun on this outing and am looking forward to SuperTrip.

Ropes Course, April 2
By Percy

On the Second of April, the Crew woke up ready to be in the trees. We went to the Sequoia Aerial Adventure Course at Mt Hermon to safely goof-off on a bunch of man-made obstacles 80ft in the air. A couple of us went head to head with a fear of heights and pushed our limits just a tad outside of our comfort zone. We ended our outing with a bungee jump with a 15-foot "free-fall". The Crew has done this outing once before, and it was even better the second time around. The question is, would we do this again? The answer is to be shown on the faces of the Crew and their utter delight, thrill, and adrenaline inducing happiness of the outing.

Treasure Hunt, March 11
By Pat

Treasure Hunt is an event that the crew plans and creates for Troop 27. The theme this year was Zombie Attack. Patrols competed to find the cure and then deliver it to victims before they became zombies forever. Troop members needed to use scout skills, teamwork, and leadership to succeed before it was too late.

Archery, February 26
By Percy

In February, the Crew went out to learn Archery from Kings Moutain Archery in Woodside. We spent the first part of the day learning everything from what type of bow we were using to how to stand correctly to making our arrows hit the target. The second half of the day we went on the shooting trail which was a giant loop filled with targets from different shooting ranges. Kind of like playing 18 holes of golf, except with supervised and controlled weapons. We tested our skills against our fellow scouts to outshoot one another and got in a great hike and amazing views to boot. We finished our day with a giant thank you to the Kings Moutain Archers and with very sore arms.

Klondike Derby, Jan 28-29
By Mayeul

The trip to Klondike was pretty smooth, it only took 2 to 3 hours before we started seeing snow. Once we got there we unloaded all our gear and got started on our snow shelters. It took awhile to finish constructing them, however the satisfaction paid off the work. For dinner we all sat around a makeshift table and seats we made by carving snow. Everyone slept fine and no one's shelter collapsed. After we woke up, we ate breakfast, participated in the Klondike Derby, and prepared to return home. Everything went smoothly and we got back home on time.

Wilderness First Aid, Jan 21
By Pat

After taking an online course and test, we spent an entire day practicing everything we had learned. In the morning we honed our diagnostic and treatment skills with different first aid discussion scenarios, then practiced bandaging and carries. The most challenging part was in the afternoon when we did live action first aid scenarios. It was a long day, but we learned a lot.
