Calendar Updated

Our Council Calendar has been updated with events finalized at yesterday’s council meeting.  Event pages will be updated as more information comes available for the Pinewood Derby, next council meeting (April 27th), Camporee Certification, Council Rocket Shoot and the Cadet International Camporee.

Current plans are for a group of SOCAL counselors and cadets to drive to Camp Elk Run.  Plans are to leave on Friday, 7 July and return on the Sunday, 23 July.  There will not be any coordinated air travel for clubs/counselors/cadets wishing to fly.

The Southwest Regional Cadet Conference will be on March 3 and 4 in Visalia.  The counselors in Visalia came up with a cool idea to not have the conference at a Church like we typically do, but to have a campout.  Tents and food will be provided and we will have a campout and bonfire on Friday night and then some training seminars in the morning.  It sounds like it will be a lot of fun so I want to encourage everyone to attend.”

Spring 2016 Update

Summer is almost upon us and it’s bringing a West Coast Camporee!

Our Events/Camporee page provides you information and registration information on the camporee.  So check it out and make plans now.  It is a great way to prepare your RPBs and Guide Trails for the International Camporee 2017.

Our council met last Thursday at Bell One.  This was originally planned to be a webcast with regional locations available, but last-minute changes on the Executive Board necessitated a face-to-face meeting.  You can read the full minutes on the “Council News” page.  In the meantime, a brief recap of the highlights:

  • Per our Constitution, Art. V. Section 1, Matt Gabrielse was nominated and unanimously approved as interim President.
  • Some of next year’s events were scheduled: Field Day (12/3); Pinewood Derby (3/25/17); First Council meeting (9/1) at 1st URC of Chino; and Second Council meeting (10/18) at Artesia Trinity
  • Rocket launch will be held at Lucerne Valley on May 20th and the 21st, with the rocket launch happening on Saturday morning.
