Thank you for everyone who came out today to help.  The Eagle project went extremely well, and we completed the retaining wall. 

For tomorrow, work for my Eagle Scout Project will begin at 2:00 pm rather than 9 a.m. We will be taping out a 4 square area and doing the first coat of paint.

No Troop Meetings for the rest of March

Posted on Mar 13 2020 - 11:00pm

Due to guidance from local and national health agencies, as well as from BSA and our charted organization (St. John), we will comply with the recommendations that we keep "social distancing" to ensure our troop famillies' health and safety.  We will not have any Troop meetings during the rest of the month of March. In late March, the Troop Committee will assess the situation for the month of April. We will keep you posted. 

POSTPONED-State of the City Color Guard, Tue 3/31

Posted on Mar 13 2020 - 10:54pm

This event has been postponed to a later date. We will post the date as soon as it becomes known.


We need 5 Scouts that are well-versed in performing the Color Guard Ceremony to preside at this event.

Since the event is held on a Tuesday where there is no Troop Meeting, the "duty" will be to eat pizza and then participate in the Color Guard ceremony at the Encinitas Community Center. That's it!

If you are interested in this unique opportunity, please contact Mrs. Sylvester.
