Pack 1776,

The Bay Bridge is currently being rebuilt and we have been offered an awesome touring opportunity of this monumental part of history.  Steve Padilla from Bay Bridge Seismic Safety Projects will give us a tour at the Public Information Office (PIO) in Oakland during the winter school break on December 21st at 2:30pm.

Here’s the agenda:

  • Welcome / introductions
  • Bay Bridge engineer presentation
  • Discuss why the new Bay Bridge is built
  • Review a booklet on the Self Anchored Suspension
  • Build marshmallow/toothpick bridges
  • Climb inside life-size models of the tower
  • Closure

This 2-hour event will all be conducted at the PIO.  We WILL NOT be walking on the Bay Bridge or taking a boat tour.

Due to limited capacity (20 youths), priority will be given to scouts first.  Look for an invitation email from me on November 10th.  Reply to the email with your scout's name and the number of adults to sign up.  No other evite will be sent.  First reply first serve.  Any spots not taken by November 17th will be open to siblings. Feel free to contact me with questions.
