Ship 72 Skipper Dean Skiff says:
These periodic posts are made to keep Ship 72 members, parents, and interested folks informed as to our activities and our plans.
I welcome positive feedback.
weekend 14 members of the ship experienced
a fantastic campout at the CARIBBEAN WEEKEND
for Ventures at camp Greenough. New
Firsts were enjoyed by all. They
ranged from camping, being away from home,
being part of a team and DOING ones
share, leaving things better than they
found it, interacting with new teens and
adults, wearing a uniform and representing
a unit, being part of the nation wide
Surge Ceremony remembering 9/11, ( Our
own Grant Putnam had the honor of being
asked to participate in the ceremony.)
seeing how the American Flag is properly
retired and respected, rifle and shotgun
use, archery, riding a zip-line, tower
climbing, swimming and sailing, and receiving
an answer after asking WHY.
(The answer was not always what they expected
or wanted, but always explained.)
Mate Brad Gardiner and I were proud the
way the 14 scouts behaved and conducted
themselves. Our appreciation and thanks
go to Cathy Imler, Amanda Haddad and Karen
Walther who joined us as leaders for the
trip. All three mentioned how they walked
away having a better idea of what the
Sea Scout program is all about. We welcome
other parents participation in the
future. Let us know your comfort zone
and how you would like to contribute as
Ship 72 makes its way.
ship will meet next Wednesday, September
22 at the scout hut 7:00 to 830 PM.
