Blackhawks Invade Newport Bay with Kayaks

The Webelos I Blackhawk Patrol spend Saturday morning in Kayaks near the Newport Sea Base.  The Scouts paddled through the bay and ended up stopping for a swim at a beach. Many of the Scouts allowed their Dad to have a free ride in the back of the kayak, while others got their Dad or Mom to paddle in sync with them.  All the boys arrived back safely, and only a few adults were seen with crooked backs when they returned. After drying off, the Scouts voted on their patrol name, with the “Blackhawk Patrol” narrowly beating out the “Sizzling Bacon Patrol” as the name of choice.  The patrol also elected their first Denner – Patrol leader : Mitchel D., and assistant Joshua W.  It was a great first outing for the new Webelos, with many great adventures ahead.  Pictures of the event can be found in our Photo Albums.
