Pack Meeting and Pinewood Derby Update

It has been decided that we will have the next pack meeting at the Pinewood Derby on Saturday, February 21.  The meeting will be about 11:00. We will also be having a representative from the council there to talk about Friends of Scouting.  

If your son will not be participating in the Pinewood Derby, please email Ed Walters! edw@teamdfl.com   We don't want to assign a racing number to scouts who will not be racing.  

Doors will be open at 9:00 if you would like to come and help setting up the track, helping your son work on his car, have a bagel, etc. If you need to drop off your car before sports, etc that day, the cafeteria will be open at 9:00.  Racing begins about noon and you don't have to be present but it sure is fun!!  All cars need to be there by 11:00 in order to be weighed and if you need to make any adjustments - you don't want to wait till the last minute.

There have also been requests for a  Family and Friends race.  If you, or another child, would like to build their own derby car to race against other families, please feel free to do so.  They are available at the council or at Ramsey or even Michael's.  This race will take place after the scouting races.  

We will once again have the Boy Scouts judging the cars on creativity/originality as well as best car (neatness, etc).  It would be great if there are a couple of grandparents who might be at the derby who could be judges as well.  They find it fun too and gives them something to do!!!  Please let Ed know if you have someone in mind.  We only need a couple, so first come first served.  

Also, there will be bagels and coffee, etc in the morning and then pizza, snacks and drinks about noon.  This is one way we recoup some of the money spent on trophies, venue, etc.  Bring an appetite!  If you need Pinewood Derby guidelines, just click here .

If you have any other questions, just ask!  Hope you can all make it!!!  Don't forget to let Ed know if your son will not be participating in the derby!!!  edw@teamdfl.com   No code word this month - too crazy at the derby!!! 

Citizenship Belt Loop almost done

If your son attended last night's meeting - he is one step away from earning his belt loop for Citizenship.  We completed items 2 & 3 last night by working on the poster showing how to be a good citizen and participating in a service project.  If your child did not bring an item for a soldier (bears-Webelos II) or earn canned goods by doing a chore or a good deed (tigers & wolves), then they will still need to work on a service project. If they have done something for church recently or if you chose a star for our adapt-a-families project - that would count as well, but be sure your child helps in that process. So while last night's meeting may have been a little hectic, there was a purpose to it.

The only thing the boys have to do to earn their Citizenship belt loop would be #1 below: Develop a list of jobs you can do around the home. Chart your progress for one week.  Please work with you scout  and encourage them to complete this at home.  Also, if you would like to encourage your scout to earn the Citizenship Pin, the requirements are below as well.

Once you are finished with it, email me to let me know and I will write down that your son has earned this belt loop!!  I hope I am giving a belt loop to every scout at the next pack meeting!!!!  

Don't forget - new scouts - practice your bobcat badge requirements! I want to award those as well!!!!  

Our next pack meeting is Monday, December 15 at 7:00.  We usually have a fun holiday party! Hope to see you there!!!

Pack Meeting Agenda 11/19/2014

We will see you tomorrow night for a 7:00 sharp to start to our meeting.  We really do try to start and finish on time. During the meeting, we are asking parents to sit with the parents from their den. Obviously if you have more than one child in scouts, choose your favorite! :)  There will not be snacks at this meeting, so please plan accordingly.

Don't forget my original message which is below (hint, hint). 

Here is the agenda:

As you enter, please drop items of food or Items for soldiers in their respective spots!! We do want to keep track of the food being brought in by each child for wolves and tigers.

  • Opening Flag Ceremony - Wolves
  • Skit - Bears
  • Announcements
  • Recognition and Advancements
  • Citizenship activity
  • game/complete note cards for soldiers
  • Clean up
  • Retiring of Colors

Also, we have checks for scout families that sold more than $100 worth of popcorn!!!  Woohoo!!!!  Thank you to all who did such a great job.  Every little bit helps - so if you sold!  Thanks!! 

Also, new to our pack scouts....if you still have not received your first t-shirt, please contact Erika Barninger
