A special announcement

Posted by MJSven on Feb 1 2019 - 5:33pm

Hello Troop 93,  Last year, during the popcorn sales, there were over 20,000 units across the nation selling popcorn. I was just informed that Troop 93 was ranked 32nd in the nation for total sales. Thats right, because of your hard work our troop sold more popcorn than 19,968 other units!! Congrats to all. I really hope you make the most of your scout accounts.  Great job and congrats to all who sold!

Attention Patch Collectors

Posted by MJSven on Oct 15 2019 - 4:56pm
Troop 93 Scouts and Scouters - Attention patch collectors - The Orange County Council has produced a collectors patch to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch and the first man on the moon.  Back in 1969, Eagle Scout Neil Armstrong became the first man on the moon.  Attached is a picture of this patch and due to a shipping mishap, I have in my possession 20 patches and have been granted permission by the Council Office to sell these patches for the low price of $10 each.  All proceeds will go to help fund the 100 Year celebration for the OCBSA.  As of this weekend I have already sold two - so only have 18 more available.  See me at the troop meeting tomorrow night to pick up one of these patches for your collection.

Backpack - San Gorgonio (was Dobb's Cabin) August 15 & 16

**FIRE UPDATE**  The San Gorgonio Wilderness has been closed to all use. An Emergency Forest Closure Order is in effect as of August 2, 2020. The order prohibits all entry into the San Gorgonio Wilderness and some adjacent areas. This order also includes the Pacific Crest Hiking Trail between the Forest Boundary and Forest Road 1N01. Additionally, all Forest Service recreation areas in the Forest Falls area are closed.  I will look for an alternative backpack location.  Have a destination you would like to go to – send me an email!

YIS, Mike Swenson

Hello Troop93 Hikers!  August 15th and 16th we will be backpacking to the summit of San Gorgonio.  This is the highest peak in Southern California and a rite of passage for serious hikers in our area.  San Gorgonio Mountain is also one of the most topographically prominent peaks in the United States, ranked 7th amongst peaks in the contiguous states.
