Shotgun Shooting sports is open to all Troop 236 Scouts, Adult Leaders & parents,

Congratulations to our latest Eagle Scout Alex Gambill!

Posted on Jun 4 2017 - 1:29pm
Please congratulate Alex Gambill on achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.  Alex passed his final board of review on Thursday night, June 1st.
For his Eagle project Alex built 10 Barn Owl boxes for the Native Bird Conservatory, a group dedicated to protecting native wildlife in  increasingly urbanized Contra Costa County.  Alex led a team of 11 scouts, many of them his fellow Tridents, to cut the boards, bore out entry holes, create entry steps, assemble and finish the boxes.  Alex selected the project since his home backs up to Las Trampas ridge and he enjoys seeing Barn Owls in his neighborhood.
Prior to this project Alex displayed leadership as a Patrol Leader, Wente Scout Lead and most recently participated in Webelos bridging.  He also earned 40 merit badges, nearly twice the required 21 for Eagle, which earned the respect of his Board of Review Committee.
Please congratulate Alex when you see him.

Congratulations to Troop 236's newest Eagle Scout, Thomas Kestler!

Thomas successfully passed his Eagle Board of Review on Thursday, May 18th.
For his Eagle Project, Thomas documented all of the equipment, furniture and religious artifacts at the newly remodeled Saint Isidore's Church in Danville.  This documentation and inventory will preserve the character and history of this 107 year old parish for generations to come.
Thomas led a group of 12 scouts from 236 and other troops to photograph, electronically categorize, and digitally archive over 250 church items, including 10 large stain glass windows. Prior to his Eagle Project, Thomas displayed leadership as the ASP for Outings, Cherry Valley and Patrol Leader. Congratulations Thomas!
