The International Sportsmen’s Expo has invited the Golden Empire Council and Scouts to participate in their annual show returning to Cal Expo on January 20-23, 2022.  California’s largest sportsman expo, ISE - Sacramento attracts sports enthusiasts from the Bay area to Nevada, southern Oregon to central California. They're seeking new products, wanting to research and book travel, try gear, learn from experts, and have a fun day out with buddies and family.  The best part of the show is that Scouters in uniform will be admitted free to the ISE on January 21, 22 & 23, 2022.  The GEC will host an exhibit in Building A and scouts and your unit can get involved.  Please contact our committee if you would like to be part of the ISE Youth Fair.  The climbing wall, recruitment station, pinewood derby, and much more will be on hand to share our program.  Special show features throughout this giant event spotlight outdoor activities, gear, and destinations--all hosted by experts. For parents with kiddos, the expo's huge Youth Fair, in which our program is participating, offers dozens of free, hands-on activities.

Carlsen Ranch Summary

Posted on Jan 2 2022 - 8:42pm

We got there late on Friday and it was cold so we set up the tents and the cooking supplies and went to bed, it was even colder in the morning. So we got up, put lots of layers on and ate breakfast and then went on a hike down the mountain to the river. And we got back and ate a tasty lunch. After that we worked on some rank advancement and some knot tying. Then we all ate dinner and warmed up by the fire for a bit until we could play an awesome game of midnight capture the flag. And then once everyone was tired we all went to bed very cold and woke up even colder, cooked up some breakfast and left the camp just how we had found it.

Rattlesnake Bar to Granite Bay Hike Summary

Posted on Jan 2 2022 - 2:39pm
One New Year's Eve,14 Scouts and Scouters hiked 10 miles from Rattlesnake Bar in Newcastle to Granite Beach in Granite Bay.  This is part of the 6-segment patch series for hiking Folsom Lake.  The Folsom Lakes Treks wander the perimeter of Folsom Lake, forming an excellent set of fitness hikes for all Scouters. The start of the hike was cool and overcast and ended being sunny and warm.  The water in the Lake has risen a lot because of the rain and there was some mud and water on the trail.  There were a couple of trees that fell and we had to hike around them but it was not hard.  These hikes are good for Scouts and Scouters that have some hiking experience.  Hiking 10 miles is hard but it can be done with training before.


Weblos Woods Summary

Posted on Oct 21 2021 - 4:52pm

Webleos Woods is where older scouts help teach young webelos skills that they can learn in scouting, and to introduce cub scouts to BSA and to our troop. On Friday 10/15/21 we unloaded the Troop trailer and set up the tents for the troop and the webelos, and made lashings for the archway and movie screen. We ate dinner and an hour later and watched a movie. On Saturday we had breakfast and made our lunch for later. We did a service project where we cleaned out fire pits in campsites. After that, we ate our lunches and waited for the webelos to arrive. Once they got to the campsites they chose their tents and formed the webelos patrols which were red, blue, and green. We participated in the opening flag ceremony and then the webelos did activities like first aid, whittling, and knife safety, and the webelos participated in fire safety. After the activities were finished, we went on a 2-mile hike. Once we completed the hike we got ready for dinner. We ate pizzadillas for dinner. After dinner, we went to the campfire to watch the patrols’ skits and to retire some of our old American flags. We enjoyed Cracker Barrel and dutch oven desserts. Finally, on Sunday we ate breakfast and listened to the Chaplain and Chaplains Aid conduct a Scout's Own service. Later, we broke down camp and made sure that we left the campsites clean. Once we were done packing up and played some team games.
