Camporall is scheduled for the second week in October - Oct 13-15.  Planning for Camporall will occur at the September Roundtable.  All Scoutmasters or their representatives should be present to discuss what activities we will be providing the webelos who attend.  It will be held at Las Flores on Camp Pendleton where we will set up our famous Haunted Mansion in the barn!  The cost will be $26.  We will have a Campmaster page for registration. Thanks to Shep Bentley helping us through the USMC paperwork!


As usual if webelos do not wish to camp they will be welcome to attend for the day.  The cost for coming for just the day will be $10.

The patch contest was won by Evan and Jacob from Troop 872.
