Upcoming Events

Arrow of Light Presentation

To all Webelos bridging next spring this presentation "Arrow of Light, What's it all about?" is geared toward all Webelos parents, Webelos leaders, interested scouts, Cubmasters for all packs!

For those of you seeking info about how to make the arrow/plaque, what do the various markings on the arrow mean, where do you obtain the materials to make the arrow, methods used for presentation, purpose of the ceremony, etc. There is really no book provided, but more word of mouth.

This presentation will bring all this together plus samples of past plaques/displays of arrows. And the Order of the Arrow will be present to explain their role and help schedule your pack for a memorable ceremony!

This presentation will be held at the January Roundtable, January 13, 2015. Location: LDS Stake Center, 2255 Felicita Rd, Escondido

General Announcements

Uniforms and Supplies

The Kit Carson 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.

The Sports Chalet in San Marcos carries a limited supply of Scouting uniforms and supplies, mostly for youth. They are located in the Grand Plaza at 177 South Las Posas Drive.

Be Ready, a long time supporter of Scouting, in Oceanside also carries Scouting uniforms and supplies. They are located at 2921 Oceanside Blvd.
