Troop 468 – who do you appreciate??? We appreciate ALL of you! A Troop with a big heart, the energy to kick it into high gear, the ability to work together and have a blast! Thanks to every Scout and adult leader for all you added to an amazing week. We can only hope you
Liam was not only the Crew Chief for the week, but he was also “Point Man”. And in both important positions he showed his leadership and wanting to do his very best. Great job Liam – we are very proud of you!
What a nucleus of a troop. These guys were self contained that worked, flowed, and moved as one unit. It is hard to explain, not often seen, and such a pleasure to witness. They also could totally could be 100% themselves around each other – silly, serious, helpful, crazy, honest, understanding, and accepting. Another pleasure
Due to his determination, helpfulness to his crew mates, and all around amazing attitude, Owen is our “Conch Award of Excellence” recipient. Congratulations Owen ~
We had such a great “ride” with this crew! They were high energy kicking it into gear throughout the whole week. Great leadership from the adults that encouraged and guided the Scouts and then let them make it happen … which they did. Our thank you to each and every one of you for making
We were lucky enough to have 2 weeks with Troop 58 “Rain Makers”. This crew was as awesome as the first, yet a heck of a lot less rain and storms, thank goodness!! They became skilled sailors, fantastic snorkelers, and learned all aspects of running Ciganka. Thank you to each and every one of you
This troop also refers to themselves as the “Rain Makers” due to what consistantly happens on most of their excursions. And now that we have had them on board 4 times, they earn this title! This week we had 4 days of severe rain, wind and lightening. We had never seen anything like it. BUT
A somewhat quiet young man that listens to what is being said or explained. And then will execute his part in a big way or help a crew mate in his task. Great job James!!
What an outstanding, polite, hard working, fun young leader! So impressive and so Proud of you Fin ~
This is one of those weeks we will never forget – so incredible! Thank you to each crew member for not only speaking the words of Christ, but showing it in your actions and heart. You have made a big impact this week on Ciganka and in our lives. God Bless ~
Dylan was our Crew Chief on board (not an easy task) and Squirrel Man (which is an important role in sailing). He did such a incredible job in every compacity of his tasks which made a huge difference in how the week ran aboard our ship. So proud of you Dylan!
This Scout was always so helpful, got the jobs done well, looked ahead to see what needed to be done, and was pleasant as can be every step of the way. We are very proud of you Patrick! Thanks for being such a stellar crew member ~
What a great week of sailing, snorkeling, conching, catching a BIG fish, and lots of laughs!! Thank you Leland for coordinating this adventure for the 3rd time for the Troop! Thank you to the whole crew. It was a real pleasure having you on board!
Way to go Xander – happy attitude every step of the way as he seized each moment every step of the way!! We are so very proud of you ~
