Looking for Mini-Golf Buddies

I'm looking for another troop to pair up with to meet the minimum participant requirement for Pell'y Mini Golf in Del Mar on Sat. Nov. 7th, 10am-12 noon. The course is 'ocean/water conservation themed' and ties in nicely with the 'Get Moving'Junior Journey or it can also stand alone as a fun patch activity.
2 options:
$10 per girl which includes round of golf with four (4) hands-on activities that are accomplished along the mini golf course, fun patch and lunch
$7.50 per girl without lunch
Email Shannon Donaghe at if your troop or even individual girls are interested.  Thanks!
See flyer for more info.

Chula Vista has a Tall Ship! Bill of Rights

feat_BoR_on_ocean Chula Vista has a tall ship, called Bill of Rights, docked at the J. Street Marina on a permanent basis! The ship is 136 feet and holds 75 people! They offer a sail out to the bay and back (about 3-4 hours) for Girl Scouts for only $15!! They offer an overnight (for about 20 people) and the next day you sail out to the bay and back for only $50! They are really excited to get girl scouts interested in sailing and can tailor the program to talk about maritime history, marine biology, marine ecology, sailing techniques, navigation and even pirates! feat_downtown-crew A group of Boy Scouts is working on restoring an old boat and they have another one that Girl Scouts could work on. They have community service opportunities and have some small boats that they can teach sailing in. Such a great resource in our own backyard!! feat_education8 The schooner has a website where you can learn more about the ship and the kinds of programs they offer. Contact them at (619) 500-2419 or email at (Tell them Debbie Lechner sent you!) feat_Schooner_Cup-1018x460

Visit SDSU With Kappa Delta Sorority!

Dear Girl Scout Troops, Leaders, & Parents, The ladies of Kappa Delta Sorority at San Diego State University would like to invite you to our Chapter-Hosted Campus Tour event! Mark your calendars for Sunday, March 15th, from 1p.m.-3p.m. Please arrive to our party between 1:00p.m and 1:15p.m. Our tour will be held on campus, but will commence at our house located at 5066 College Ave, San Diego, CA 92115.  The Campus Tour Event is a very important event for the sisters of Kappa Delta Sorority. We all love San Diego State University for the amazing educational opportunity that it provides to all its students. What better way to inspire future college students to become interested in their educational futures than to promote the uniqueness of our own campus! We will be having a campus-wide quest for which the girl scouts will be broken up into several teams, each lead by members of our sorority. Throughout the quest we will be providing the girls with information about not only the items on the list of things to find, but also about our own positive experiences with the school. At the end of the event, each team will be awarded with a prize to honor the efforts made in the quest. We will also be making posters together, which will demonstrate good study habits and teach good study skills for students of all ages.  This event is open to Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Juliettes. We also encourage your group to bring other young women along regardless of their involvement in Girl Scouts. For planning purposes, please RSVP your attendance to our Campus Tour event by March 11th, 2015 to In your response, indicate the number of girls in your group that will be attending. The Kappa Delta girls look forward to seeing you there! Sincerely, You Kappa Delta Girl Scout Chairs, Madeline Staudinger and Taylor Mosack   You will be able to find parking in Parking Structure 6, located two blocks from Kappa Delta (see attached link for SDSU map).
