The past few weeks

This past few weeks, a lot has happened for example the court of honor, craw fish, the placements of the flags in the cemetery, and elections.  Of corse it has been a while since the elections of the new leaders and I am the webmaster again and I am going to stay on track like I use to. The elections went great, the new leaders have new rules (especially how long the parent announcements have to be, he he). The craw fish boil event held on May 19th was a success. The scouts had a shooting range and they not only got to use shotguns and rifles, they got to use pistols! The craw fish itself had a delay on the delivery, but in the meantime the scouts got to shoot of course. When the craw fish arrived the scouts and grown ups got to play with the craw fish a little and then the grown ups cooked the craw fish. A member of the Orange County S.W.A.T came as well and he showed a demonstration on semi-auto's and fully automatic machine guns!  All those who went had a great time. The Saturday before Memorial Day, troop 54 went to the L.A. cemetery to place American flags on the graves of the men and women who served our country and died at different wars. What was surprising that channel 2 news interviewed some of the members of our troop and it was awesome to see them on TV.  Last Monday, June 3rd, Troop 54 had a court of honor and most of the scouts skits were really funny. There were a lot of merit badges awarded and patches and pins for the moms.  Close to the end of the court of honor a former member of our troop and Eagle Scout, joined us and right now he is a member of the military. It was an honor to have him at our court of honor.
