Rocket Shoot Lucerne Valley December 8, 2012
Scouts met at the Church at 6 A.M. to drive 2 1/2 hours to join the NAR rocket shoot that had 50 launch pads. We shot rockets from 9 A.M. to 2 P. M. in a dry lake bed.
Some of the scout’s rockets were named Morgan Freeman, Das Express, Interceptor, Carbon Dart, Aero Arrow, and Swag Overload.
Rockets varied in size from 2 ft. to 6 ft. long with engine size A to G. Thank you to Mr. U. for donating rocket engines.

Hoegee’s Backpack By Geoff
I couldn’t attend but some scouts reported back to me on this outing.
The scouts had a great time backpacking into the Hoegee’s camp ground which is about a 3 mile hike along a stream in a rugged forest in the San Gabriel Mountains.
We had to get our water filtered from the stream. It was cool under the trees but very hot above the trees as a group of scouts tried to climb Mt. Zion. They ran out of water and had to turn back near the top.
Some scouts completed their 5 mile map and compass. The scouts who did not hike made some short videos around the campground. Francesco led this outing and did a great job.
There were bears in the area and we heard some spooky noises at night.
Most scouts stopped at In-and-Out Burger on the way home Sunday.
