Upcoming Activities:

New Year's Pack Hike - January 2nd
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

What better way to start off the new year than with a little exercise?  We will hike Goldmine Gulch Trail as a Pack.  It is planned as a 4 mile hike, but the younger scouts with shorter legs will be encouraged to shorten the route based on their ambition.  Click here for a handout with directions.

Pinewood Derby - January 29th - 30th
It will take some time to build, paint, and polish the pinewood derby car with your Cub Scout so add it to you list of activities for the new year.  Stay tuned for updates about group building sessions to get tips and tricks from the leaders with prior experience.  In the meantime, click here for an online guide with rules and tips.

The first open house will be at Cubmaster Doug's house on January 9th from 3:00 - 5:00PM.  Feel free to show up and start building.

This is always a fun event for the Scouts with some competition and lots of awards for the winners and participants.

January Pack Meeting - January 25th
This will be an awards meeting for all the Den activities completed over the holidays.  

Pack T-Shirts have arrived so all sizes should be available for purchase at the Pack Meeting.  The cost this year is $13, the same as the Pack's expense to purchase each shirt.

Scouting for Food - January 30th and February 6th
Scouting for food is a nationwide Boy Scout activity to help give back to our community by way of food donations to a local food bank.  You can read more at the BSA website.  

Den Leaders will provide empty paper bags with flyers.  Each Den will pick a time on the 30th to drop off bags at the doorstep of homes in a pre-selected neighborhood.  The flyers are self-explanatory so there is no need to ring doorbells.  They will request families to fill up the bag with non-perishable food and leave it on their doorstep the morning of February 6th for the Cub Scouts to pick up and deliver to the food bank.

It turns out to be good exercise for the Cub Scouts, but otherwise a fairly easy way to collect food for the community.
