Last Weekend, our troop helped out the Escondido Community by participating in two Veteran-related events- The Veterans Resource Riot and the first ever Escondido Annual Veterans Day Parade. At the riot, scouts helped veterans get the support they needed by setting up displays, making paper flowers, and taking down the event. It was no easy feat, either- the scouts were there for over five hours! At the parade, scouts carried a giant flag down and up Grand Avenue and even volunteered to walk two service dogs in training. “It felt great to help out the community,” One scout said excitedly.
Last Monday, our troop had a spooky time celebrating Halloween with our annual Halloween Party. Scouts and Weblos alike participating in fun activities such as a Pumpkin Carving Contest, Weird Food Contest, Costume Contest, and even got to venture inside a haunted house. “The haunted house was amazing,” One scout said. “I was very impressed.”
Fun. Amazing. Aggressive. These are all words scouts used to describe the Camporee our troop attended last weekend, where activities ranged from battle axe tossing to a sword fight. Campers also got to participate in archery, the sheath toss, and watch a movie. However, most scouts agreed that the sword fight was the best part of the fun-filled weekend. “We got to make our own swords, and then fight with them,” one scout excitedly explained. “It was really cool.”
Last weekend, our troop had a blast spending the weekend at Carlsbad State Beach. Activities included boogie-boarding, sandcastle building, rock collecting, a trip to a store to buy some ice cream, and even burying a scout on the beach. “It was really awesome,” One scout said when asked to comment.
We need your help! The shed has become disorganized and cluttered. We suspect shed gnomes, but we can’t seem to catch them. We need your help to come out to the Elk’s Lodge on Sunday afternoon, and help us clean out and organize the shed. In addition, we need help retiring several worn flags that have been put in our care. Our quartermasters, Garrett and Kyle are looking forward to seeing you there on Sunday!
