The GOLD rush is on! We're heading to Julian for the ultimate GOLD Mine Tour and the May campout at William Heise County Park 5/19 - 5/21! And it's time to stake your claim on the "GOLDEN" Spoon where Troop 1613 Patrols will need to create any dish for Saturday night that ties in with the theme of "Mining or GOLD Mining." We will be visiting the historic hard rock gold mine from 1870 at the Eagle Mining Co. on Saturday morning. http://www.theeaglemining.com/. We also have an amazing group campsite in a forest of oaks and pines at William Heise County Park which is situated 4,200 feet above sea level along the northern region of the Cuyamaca Mountain Range. http://www.sdparks.org/content/sdparks/en/park-pages/WilliamHeise.html

The amazing scouts of Troop 1613 won TOP TROOP, BEST CAMPSITE and BEST 24 POLE GATEWAY at the Portola District Camporee this past weekend at Firestone Scout Reservation! There was a lot of hard work and great scout skills from our scouts that allowed them to take all of these top awards. Also special thanks to our fantastic adults who attended this weekend to support our Troop including Mr. Hildebrandt, Mr. Steadman, Mrs. Cornelius, Mr. Goldstein and Mr. Mouleart. In honor of these great accomplishments, the Troop will be having a Pizza Party and Game Night at the 5/8 meeting. Troop will provide the pizza and we ask that each Troop 1613 family bring a drink or snack/dessert to share for the Scouts to enjoy on 5/8. Yours in Scouting!
