May 19 - Get Ready for Camp day

Attention Volunteer Scouters.

The Valley Scout Shop will be having a new program - Get Ready For Camp day on May 19.

I am looking for volunteers who can help with this event in volunteering their time and help teach these mini demonstrations or classes. The demonstration or class will be about 30 to 45 minutes long.

I need help with the following topics:

  • Backpack Fitting (we have a backpack fitter)
  • Getting Ready for Summer Camp (what to bring)
  • Preparing for Hiking
  • Pack a Backpack
  • Rope/Knot Tying
  • Backpack Cooking
  • Rock Climbing
  • Dutch Oven Cooking
  • First Aid

If you are knowledgeable in any of these areas and can spare a little time helping with the Scouts, or for further information, please call me ASAP.

July 13, 2012 - Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey - Dragons

You are invited to join my group! Bring families and friends!

Dragons 2012

This is a great event with special perks for Boy/Cub/Girl Scouts and other youth groups!

July 13, 2012 (Friday)
Staples Center

Group will meet at the 11th Street main entrance (by Magic Johnson statue). Tickets will be distributed there from 5:30 - 6:00 PM.

You and your friends won't want to miss the all-new electrifying Dragons edition of the Greatest Show on Earth!

And why on a Friday night? Because this is the best value for the price and seats for everyone to enjoy the show!

The actual show starts at 7:30 PM. However, our group is invited to a very special All-Access Pre-show at 6:30 PM. The group will be able to go in at 6:00 PM. This is an excellent opportunity to meet some of the world-class performers. It is interactive and they request some of the guests to go to the center and do fun stuff with them. There will also be picture-taking opportunities with the stars. The Pre-show is included with your ticket.

All guests in my group will also receive the 2011 Ringling Circus Commemorative Patch.

Great seats are available to my group (I have the entire sections 106 and 107, which are the best!) on a first-pay, first-served basis! (I have a very strong relationship with the Staples Center) So, reserve your tickets now!

Cost is only $20.00 per child/adult. (includes processing/handling fees charged by Staples Center for every ticket...) This does not include food or parking, please... Carpooling is the best way to go!

RSVP to Jocelyn Reyes at

Payment by checks or via Chase Quick Pay only... Please do not pay via PayPal or you will get charged extra fees...

Instructions to be e-mailed once reservation is confirmed.

Seats will be assigned as per payment received!

I will be sending more detailed info to all participants by July 11th, 2012.

Payments are non-refundable after tickets are purchased.

Don't wait until the last minute to take advantage of the great seats I have!

And remember: The interactive Pre-show and the Commemorative Patch are great offers for my group.

An hour before show time, audiences can join Ringling Bros.® talented performers and learn new circus skills at the All-Access Pre-show, free with your ticket!

  • At the free All-Access Pre-show, Ringling Bros. acrobats, clowns and other accomplished athletic performers show young and old alike an awe-inspiring and action-packed approach to daily health and fitness.
  • Audience members can get up close and personal with Ringling Bros. performers to take photos, get autographs and learn circus skills at the All-Access Pre-show.
