Sea Scout Ship 41 Winner of Mid West Region

Congratulations! Ship 41 Sea Scouts with their research into the environmental impact of improperly disposed of oil filters are winners of the Midwest area award of $4,500.00 for the Interlux Waterfront Challenge. The development of a hand operated mechanical filter crusher persuaded the judges that we were truly winners. For details of the challenge go to scoutswaterfrontchallenge.blogspot.com 

Stay tuned for details of the check ($$) presentation ceremony. Details of the award can be seen here:

Flagship "Intrepid"on hard for the winter.

After a great sail in late October, Intrepid is out of the water. It will take some hard work to get her ready for the Spring 2012.  Next year is the 100th anniversary of Sea Scouting in the USA and we are looking forward to a busy sailing season.
