Scout-O-Rama 2016 is almost here

Screen Shot 2016-05-05 at 19.26.24Things are a little different this year. Unit cars/trucks/trailers can get onto the field Friday from 2-9. Saturday no cars/trucks or trailers can go on the field. Units line up on the north/west side of the parking lot to drop off heavy items only at the blue gate where we will have flatbed carts to help get stuff to your spot. Stuff can then be picked up starting at 4:45 pm to get access to the field with your cars/trucks/trailers. Line up in the same line to get in as when things were dropped off.

Del Mar Eagle Scout to receive Eagle Scout Project of The Year Award

UntitledJordan Fourcher, an Eagle Scout from Del Mar Troop 90 will be honored as the 2015 recipient of the National Eagle Scout Association Adams Award – Orange County, for planning and completing the Council’s Eagle Scout Project of the Year.

The award will be presented at the Orange County Council’s Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Garden Grove on Wednesday April 27th, 2015 at 7 pm.

Tickets to the event are available here.

Jordan’s Eagle Scout Service Project honored the 84 service members who perished in the 1965 crash of a US Air Force transport plane on Loma Linda ridge as they were leaving for service in Viet Nam.

The National Eagle Scout Association established the Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award to recognize valuable service of an exceptional nature by a Scout to a religious institution, a school, community, or other entity.

The award recognizes the Scout for his Eagle Scout leadership service project, which is part of the requirements for earning the Eagle Scout Award. Each year, local councils select a council-level winner, and this year’s honoree is Jordan Fourcher.
