Upcoming Events

Lake Elsinore Storm Game/Overnighter

From Bob Keeley:
"Hey Scouts! Summer is HERE Folks!! If your looking for a great Summer event for your Pack or Troop, then we'd love to have you join us for the Scout Appreciation night - Lake Elsinore Storm Game/Overnighter, Friday August 18TH 2017.

Once again I will be heading up the event to invite all Packs and Troops, Venture Crews etc that are looking for a great scout event to add to their calendars. In past years we occupied most of an entire section and I have up to 150 seats just past 3rd base that need to be filled(Full section is 300). This year let's make it 300!! This type of thing is catching on fast among other units and it's a great way of meeting all scouts and families from other units. As an added bonus, all those that attend will participate in pre-game field procession( CLASS A uniform required please) which is always a treat. Then grab your seat, and watch the Lake Elsinore Storms (Class A California League San Padres Affiliate) play some great baseball in a "close-to-field" setting. These guys work for it! After the game, FIREWORKS !!** then go the car, grab your gear (tent, sleeping bag) and camp on the field and watch a movie on the big stadium screen! There are three packages you can sign up for; 8 PACKAGES $18 - Game / Meal ticket/ Campout, $15 - Game / Meal ticket, $9.50 - Game only.

Due to the popularity of this event I would request ONE representative from each Pack or Troop coordinate to their groups ticket sales and provide one check / cash for the tickets. DEADLINE FOR TICKET PURCHASES THROUGH ME IS July 28th. This was very popular last year and I'm looking forward again this year to making it happen again!" - Bob Keeley or 760.815.2741 (m).

General Announcements

Uniforms and Supplies

The Palomar Mountain District has a Uniform and Equipment Exchange. For sale, at a nominal fee, are gently used uniforms and working equipment. Items to be added to our inventory are always welcomed. Drop off those uniforms that your son, or Venturing daughter, no longer wear. Maybe you have some working camping equipment just taking up space in your garage; we'll gladly take it off your hands so that you can make room for some new, cool stuff. Contact Brad Baker at his office (Baker Orthodontics - 760.743.2295) to inquire about needed items, or for drop off information.

San Pasqual Battlefield Patch

The Palomar Mountain District and the San Pasqual Battlefield State Historic Park have collaborated to offer Scouts of all ages the opportunity to earn a very unique and historic patch. Simply visit the State Historic Park, watch an informative historic video, answer a few questions, take a brief hike and submit an application (and small fee) to one of the volunteers at the visitor's center and the collectable patch is yours. NOTE: There is a limited supply of the current patch design remaining, so it is destined to become even more collectable. Get yours while supplies last. Once they are gone, they will be replaced by an entirely new patch design. Learn more.
