Rover Muster

 In lieu of an Association-wide Rover Moot, AMRC held a Rover Muster, an afternoon gathering of the Rovers and guests to learn some PTS and hands-on skills.

A Rover Muster was traditionally held every week, and was a two-hour program that included business, scoutcraft, handicrafts, and service-related activities all in one evening. It is a great opportunity for adults to gather and learn and play the scouting game together.

Our Muster included learning about backpacking kit, storing food, hygiene, and water. We also learned about using a compass and did an orienteering course around the park to get the hang of finding a compass bearing and getting to the next clue. We finished off by cleaning up the playground near the pavilion. We also enjoyed hot chocolate and donuts and socializing with one another.

Bell Canyon Reservoir adventure, New Page

The Crew now has a YouTube channel, where members of the Crew can share their Rover Scout experiences!

Here is a video of our latest adventure!

The AMRC catalog has been updated once more. We are consolidating online payment to Stripe, and will send invoices in the case of card payment for insignia orders.

A new page, Crew Insignia Orders, has been created to clarify and highlight the process of ordering insignia. Most of this information has been removed from the Resources page and given its own page.

We also want to welcome our newest Squire, Kelley!

May AMRC Rover Camp Out

 May 13-14 was our annual Crew camp out. The Crew camped up a canyon near Stockton, UT, the same one we camped in last year. The weather was warm and beautiful!

We had our 3 active members and  one guest. On Friday evening we worked on some Tenderfoot qualifications together and did flag retirement. RSL Sarah also introduced the Crew Motto: "We Slay Dragons!"

Our Crew membership plaque.

Saturday morning we used shovels,  four-wheeler+trailer, and a digger to create a 19 ft circle of sand the campground owner wants to use for a  large tent for Mountain Man Rendevous on Memorial Day weekend. It was a lot  of fun moving sand  around and making the camp ground a better place!

Dooly Knob Trail

 This post has been a long time coming! On Saturday April 16, the Aspen Mountain Rover Crew traveled to Antelope Island and hiked the Dooly Knob (Frary Peak) trail. We didn't make it all the way to Dooly Knob, but Candidate Alex made it about 1/3 of the way, and RSL Sarah and Rover Mate Lance made it more than halfway. We had a guest with us, the RSL's cousin Peter. There were spectacular views of the drying inland sea bed and the purple Wasatch Mountains to the east.
