Trout Fishing Event (Sunday, Dec. 6)

This year’s Trout fishing event will be on Sunday December 6th  at Santa Ana River Lakes.  (http://www.fishinglakes.com)

The lake is open from 6 am to 4 pm. You can line up at the gates beginning the night before and wait till the 6:00 am opening to get the best spots. After 6:30 am or so the line dies down and you should be able to drive right in.

Santa Ana River Lakes (SARL) consists of three lakes – two small (Catfish Lake and Chris’s Pond) and one large lake. We will have a section of the shoreline reserved for our Pack but all lakes are open to all of us. SARL are silting ponds for water that eventually ends up in our taps. It is clean water allowing the lake to stock lots of big fish. Continue reading

Pack Halloween Party (Sat. Oct 3rd)

Our annual Pack Halloween Party to be held on Saturday, Oct. 3rd between 5:00 – 7:00 pm at the St. Bonaventure Parish Hall. I know what some of you are thinking – “Isn’t that a little early for a Halloween Party ?” Maybe, but it’s the only time we could get the Parish Hall! It is, of course, a costume party and siblings (and grandparents) are invited. Last year was a blast and this year should be even better. There will be lots of games, treats, “spooky” music and a photo booth where the kids can have their pictures taken in costume. The Pack will also provide pizza. The event is free but we are asking each family to bring one of the following:

  • Tigers (Dens 2, 6 & 13) – Snacks (Chips, pretzels, nuts, popcorn, etc)
  • Wolves (Dens 10, 11 & 12) – Appetizers (ie. Taquitos, egg rolls, veggie tray, etc)
  • Bears (Dens 1 & 9) – Salads
  • Webelos 1  (Dens 7 & 8) – Bottled water and juice (no more than a 12 pack per family)
  • Webelos 2 (Dens 3 & 16) Dessert

 Also, if anyone is interested and available to help with decorations please contact our fearless packmaster, Tom Scully.
