Darren built a spotlight tower for Mr. McGovern's Black Box Theatre, who was a former Palo Alto High School (PALY) teacher. It consisted of a 9x3x4 foot tower that could support 3 students' weight. (see pictures below). The project took 201 hours to complete. Darren used mainly non-Troop 57 laborers because the project provided for outside volunteers (kids in his class). The budget was $1000 and Bruce Bower kindly discounted a large portion of the materials. Darren suggests to Eagles-in-the- making: "when doing the write up keep a very brief daily diary of activities to refresh your memory of what happened and when. Everything took planning." Unfortunately, Darren's work left when Mr. McGovern left PALY.
