GSCO Boating Program Receives Generous Kayak Donation

The Girl Scouts of Colorado boating program is stronger than ever with the donation of kayaks and more in honor of a special volunteer. Early this summer Rocky Mountain Sea Kayak Club (RMSKC) members Marlene Pakish and Julie Rekart donated their first kayaks to the GSCO boating program  in honor of long-time RMSKC member Lou Ann Hustvedt, who recently lost her battle with cancer. Lou Ann, known as “Skipper” to the Scouts, had taught boating skills and knowledge to hundreds of young women in summer camps for more than two decades. Their generous donation included paddles, PFDs, spray skirts, cockpit covers and several other items. The boats were complete and ready to provide many years of service to the troop that Lou Ann loved and served. RMSKC’s Brian Hunter, called “Splash” while instructing at Girl Scout camp, picked up the kayaks from Marlene and Julie and gave them a good going-over before delivering them and other donated gear to the Scouts’ Summer Day Camp at Big Soda Lake in Bear Creek Park. Brian and Belle “Hedgehog” Bashaw (lead Girl Scout Kayak Instructor and a new RMSKC member) took the Carolinas for a test paddle. They agreed the boats were a perfect fit for the Girl Scout program: the kayaks accelerated quickly and were nimble on the water. They reported that they held an edge nicely and turned on a dime. In addition to the donations of the best inflatable boat for fishing, gear, and a RMSKC fund in Lou Ann’s name, Brian and Clark “Bald Eagle” Strickland taught for a week at Girl Scout Boating Camp this summer.

Girl Scout Gold Award Project: Rebecca Clark, Colorado Springs, “Color Guard Clinic – Guard is Great!”

What did you do for your Gold Award project?

I put together a performing arts clinic for middle schoolers in my district.

Why did you pursue this Gold Award project?

There is a lack of understanding in the community (and world) about what Color Guard is, thus a lack of funding and participation.

How did your Gold Award project make a difference?

Many people were exposed to a sport that is my passion, and something they might not otherwise have known about. Students learned dance, movement, and how to spin and toss flags. Color Guard is a fun and supportive environment in high school. Students who join will have a supportive base and friends in high school.

What skills did you gain through earning your Gold Award?

I learned leadership skills, planning, and flexibility.

How did you make your project sustainable?

I made a Facebook page and YouTube page with pictures and instructional videos. I also made a flash drive with all clinic information, from permission slips to t-shirt orders and daily schedules to give to others who wish to hold a clinic.

What was your connection to the national or global community?

Color Guard is a global sport, with very little recognition. My Facebook and YouTube pages will attract people to the sport with instructional videos on tosses and routines.

What will you most remember about your Gold Award project?

I will most remember watching the veterans helping the new students, and the enthusiasm everyone showed toward the sport.

How will earning your Gold Award help you in your future?

I have learned how to be a leader in my community: how to step up and lead a large group of people towards a common goal.

Why do you feel the Gold Award is an important part of your Girl Scout experience?

I feel the Gold Award is an important part of my Girl Scout experience because it makes me more confident in organizing and leading events. It is the highest award possible for a Girl Scout to earn, and I plan on being a Girl Scout for the rest of my life. It is the culmination of my Girl Scout experience.

***IMPORTANT NOTE: This blog represents only a small fraction of the hard work, dedication and requirements that go into earning a Girl Scout Gold Award. It is simply a brief summary, which is meant to inspire Girl Scouts to Go Gold in the future. For more information on earning your Gold Award, please email highestawards@gscolorado.org
