BSA youth protection program.
past Wednesday night meeting was very
eventful. All ten sea scouts that attended
successfully completed the BSA swim test.
This was billed as a swim check but to
our surprise everyone demonstrated the
ability to jump in water over their head,
surface, swim 75 yards (3 laps) non stop
using any stroke or a combination of strokes,
then swim the last 25 yards of the 100
yards using an easy resting back stroke,
and then floating for two minutes. Needless
to say we were all very proud of the crew
members who accomplished something to
their credit. After the swim check the
scouts practiced lifesaving jumps in deep
water, lifesaving ring throws and individual
help that was requested before enjoying
their free pool time. I know Barbara Nagel
owner/operator of Willys Gyms in
Eastham and Orleans, was glad to help
out and we thank her for her support.
next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday,
July 7, 2010 at the Scout Hut.
dates for a cruse on the CG36500 are being
determined. Please go to www.cg36500.org
and see what a unique experience this
would be. This is the Rescue Motor Lifeboat
listed on the National Register of Historic
Places docked at the end of Rock Harbor.
After all these years many of us still
get goose bumps as we see her and think
of what she and her crew accomplished
during a northeaster on the night of February
18, 1952. Her Coast Guard crew rescued
32 of 33 men after 60 foot waves split
the tanker Pendleton in two. What an exciting
way to connect with a thrilling chapter
of our Cape Cod history.
are hoping to have the Port Surfboat in
the Orleans 4 of July Parade. We need
all sea scouts who WOULD participate in
the parade to call or email Skipper Dean
ASAP. We will meet at 9:15 at the NMS
gym side / bus parking lot. The exposure
of the NAUSET SEA SCOUTS in this community
event would no doubt help our program
in many ways. The Ship needs every ones
support so that we can take advantage
of this great opportunity.
me a call at 978-697-1596.
