Scout Week featuring Andrew Skurka

Fontana sports owners John and Judith Hutchinson are an Eagle Scout and a lifelong Girl Scout.  Their children John and Elizabeth also achieved Eagle Scout and Silver Scout respectively.  Many other Fontana employees are/were active in the scouts and we all appreciate the wonderful work that local troops do and the opportunities afforded to the youth in our community through scouting. Because of this we have planned Scout week April 9 - April 15, 2012

Fontana Sports will recognize all Scouts with their Boy Scout or Girl Scout card by giving them 20% off all non sale purchases this week. We will also be offering FREE clinics to scouts during the week.
