On September 28, the troop drove to Beale Air Force Base for the “Xtreme” Scout Expo. After setting up camp on Friday night, we woke up the next day ready for a full day of activities. September 29 began with opening flags, where thousands of scouts gathered to witness the avenue of flags, as well as hear announcements from event leaders, such as Dave and Chris Ishikawa, the organizers of this impressive expo.
Throughout the day, scouts visited interesting presentations, such as fly-fishing, in addition to activities including rock climbing and an extensive firearms range. The air force base flight line served as a main attraction during the day and the setting of the evening arena show, during which astronaut José Hernandez shared his “out-of this-world” experiences. This event concluded on Sunday when our troop packed up the camp and helped to wrap up this monumental function.
