Eagle Project of the Year!
At Troop 667's October Court of Honor, Eagle Scout Yash Huilgol was awarded the San Diego Imperial Council's 2013 Eagle Project of the Year by Frank Kebelman (President of the SD Eagle Scout Alumni Association). Yash has created the truly remarkable Los Penasquitos Canyon Virtual Trails Project. At each canyon mile marker and various other spots throughout the canyon, including the Ranch House, Yash has created a QR code that hikers/bikers/horseback riders will be able to scan with a smartphone in order to find information about how far they are from a trailhead, a creek crossing, the waterfall, etc, along with links to a full trail map.

Navy Marine Corps Commendation Medal
Congratulations to Troop 667 Asst. Scoutmaster and Marine Lance Corporal Steven Beall who recently received the Navy Marine Corps Commendation Medal for saving a man's life on Troop 667's May 2012 white water rafting trip! After the man from another raft was pulled from the river, looking non-responsive and blue, L CPL Beall helped clear the man’s lungs of water and used sign language skills to communicate with the all deaf crew to find and help administer a lifesaving COPD inhaler to the man.
The Commendation Medal is a senior award to service members who, while serving in any capacity with the Navy or Marine Corps, distinguish themselves by heroism, outstanding achievement or meritorious service, but not to the degree required for the Navy and Marine Corps Medal (risk to one's own life) when combat is not involved.
He has also received the Boy Scout Medal of Merit award for his life-saving actions at a BSA National Court of Honor.
