Swim Check

Posted on Aug 23 2014 - 6:21am

If you are planning on attending the COH Pool Party, the Roosevelt Lake Trip (Aquatics Outing) or the Fossil Creek Backpacking Trip you will need a Swim Check.

Riley and Dalton will be working at Peco Pool over the Labor Day Weekend. They can give you your swim checks on their breaks They only get 10 to 15 minutes every break and get a break every hour to hour and a half. Please call ahead or text them before showing up so that they can look for you. If all of you show up at once they will probably would not be able to check everyone in one break. Please do not talk to them while they are on duty they take their job very seriously.   

Here is what the test consist of:
Jump feet first into water over the head in depth, level off, and begin swimming. Swim 75 yards in a strong manner using one or more of the following strokes: sidestroke, breaststroke, trudgen, or crawl; then swim 25 yards using an easy resting backstroke. The 100 yards must be swum continuously and include at least one sharp turn. After completing the swim, rest by floating one minute.

Pepper Sauce Caves Outting

Posted on Aug 17 2014 - 3:26pm

Recently Troop 17 journeyed to Peppersauce caves! We went deep into the caves and it was a humbling experience knowing that you are a couple hundred feet underground and only one way out. All in all it was a great experience and we will be looking into more caving in the future

DJ Eagle Project

Posted on Aug 17 2014 - 3:21pm

My Project is to enhance the Central Arizona Project (CAP) canal trail, which has been designated a national recreational trail. I recently rode my bike along this trail and found it difficult to find the actual trail route. To make the trail safer, I want to add trail markers at key points along the trail and remove any vegetation growing in the trail.
