Pack 3789 Visited Dodger Stadium

On Aug 7th, Sunday, Cub Scouts and families of Pack 3789 visited Dodger Stadium and watched a baseball game. This was the last weekend of Summer vacation before a new school year starts in Oak Park. Our pack has returned to regular activity schedule.

2022 Pinewood Derby

Pack 3789 had the annual Pinewood Derby race on Mar 27. Our state-of-the-art 35-foot race track recorded that most racers reached sub-3 seconds results.

However, the only objective of the race is to have fun doing it, and as long as you are in it, you are a winner. The Ventura County Council will have a county-wide Pinewood Derby on June 25, and everyone is encouraged to participate. Please visit the below link for details:

Emergency Light Saber

At our Pack meeting, our Scouts learned to make “Emergency Light Sabers” using a piece of LED light strip wrapping around a 1-foot-long PVC pipe, and lit them up with power banks.

Popcorn Sale is here

Popcorn season is finally here, which will run only 3 weekends. Boy Scout Popcorn sale is our traditional fundraising program. It’s a great opportunity for Scouts to learn about “work to pay their own way”, and pick up some soft skills.

This year’s popcorn sale uses Trail’s End App that can help to sign up storefront time slots, run cash or credit card transaction, and do online and wagon sale – all-in-one. If any question, please contact our Popcorn Kernel, Eva.

Tip: Asking “would you like to support our Scouting program?” is much more effective than “would you like to buy some popcorn?”.

Water Conservation Presentation Aug 19, 2021

Pack 3789: Water Conservation Presentation

California Drought Map:

  • Current Conditions and Impact of California Drought:
  • How much water do I use at home each day?

Estimates vary, but, on average, each person uses about 80-100 gallons of water per day. In 2018, two laws were passed that built on California’s ongoing efforts to make water conservation a way of life. The laws establish a standard of 55 gallons per person per day until January 2025, and then to 50 gallons per person per day in 2030.

  • How do I find out how much water my home use?
    • The Las Virgenes Municipal Water District has adopted a “water budget system”. Every household’s water budget consists of Indoor Need, Outdoor Need and certain Adjustments. Indoor water budget is calculated with 55 gallons per person per day.

  • Is that any change or restrictions on water usage in effect?

Not yet. As California’s drought worsens amid scorching heat across the state and challenging water supply conditions in Northern California, California Governor has called on all Californians to reduce water use by 15 percent.

Jan 14 Pack Meeting: Fun with Gemstones

We invited a local gemstone expert, Mr. Kevin Lake, to join our Pack meeting to talk about gemstones. Mr Lake was an Eagle Scout many years ago and he generously donated many pieces of Botswana Agate raw stones to our Pack. Every scout received a piece of Botswana Agate before the meeting and learned some fun facts about this gemstone. We also had a virtual tour in Mr. Lake’s workshop to see how he cuts, shapes and polishes gemstones.
