The intensity of seismicity increased as well, producing twice as many M 2s as last week. All of the M 2 activity occurred in the northern map area. The Almanor fault zone continued to be active with two parts contributing to the action, the segment along the west sicle of Peninsula and the segment that cuts through eastern lassen Volcanic National Park. The largest quake measured M 2.1 and occurred a mile east of Mr. Harkness. This is where the fault displaces lateral glacial moraine crests a total of 34 and 45 meters (ave. 39.5 meters). The age of the moraine crests is not well known but are likely to be around 18,000 years old. A M 7.4 quake causes about 4 meters of dis- placement, so roughly 10 have happened since 18,000 years ago. The big question is when did the last one happen? A study nearby did not reveal an exact date but suggested a movement of -1.5 meters oc- curred within the last few hundred years. Quincy's Boy Scout Troop 151 members (from left) Luke Zempel, Sam Lawson, Mikey Bruce and Zach Jensen salute the flag during a flag raising ceremony last month at a regional Camporee in Taylorsville. Photo by Scott Lawson Local Scouts enjoy range of activities Suzi Brakken Special to Feather Publishing Quincy's Boy Scout Troop 151 has had a busy spring so far. In April, the troop camped at Folsom Reservoir and rode their bikes from the campground to Nimbus Dam Salmon Hatchery. The boys also held a Court of Honor last month where they were acknowledged for their rank advancements ad merit badges. Later in the month, the troop gathered at the Taylorsville campground for a Camporee with other troops from around the area to work on Boy Scouts' newest merit badge, Search and Rescue. Volunteers from Lassen County Search and Rescue guided the boys on how to conduct a rescue, and Scoutmasters cooked up their best Dutch oven recipes for a competition potluck lunch. The Quincy troop's jambalaya took home top honors. The next event, May 3, was Boy Scout Challenge held at the Cabela's store in Reno, where the Scouts participated in several activities including metal detecting, gold panning, fir,q aid and blindfolded tent building. Upcoming events for the local .troop include an orienteering day and trip to, the state capitol, a Memori,! Day flag raising at Dame Shirley Plaza, and a local campout and hike in June.
