Our Troop has been conducting the color guard for the State of the City event the past several years.  It is a true honor, and provides great recognition for our troop and for scouting in general.  This year's event will be held on Tuesday Oct 12.  The location is still to be determined (either at the new Alila Marea Beach Resort or at the Encinitas Community Center).  Arrive at 4:45 to rehearse.  We need at least 5 scouts to volunteer, more than 5 is fine.  We also need 2 adult volunteers to bring the flags and flagstands, and help the boys rehearse.  Please sign up on signup sheet.
