Kickoff Pack meeting Sep 10th

Hello everyone,
We are going to have our first Cub Scout Pack meeting on  Monday Sep 10th at 6:30 pm.  Location is still being worked on and will be announced soon.

This first meeting is very important as we will go over the plan for the year.  While the kids are involved in their activities for the night, we will also have a parent overview and talk about how the Pack runs, what we do at den meetings, what we do at pack meetings, what things the boys will be doing to work on their rank achievements, and what you as parents can do.  Please come!

Thank you
Steve Tackett

Beach Cleanup and Camp Fire

Toro Park Cub Scout Pack 93 Beach Clean Up And Camp Fire

When: Friday September 7th 5:00pm

Where: Del Monte Beach, Monterey

This event is for the scouts and their families. After the trash clean up we will have a hot dog roast, including a bag of chips and drink, followed by roasting marshmallows and making s'mores.

Provided for each participant will be: hot dogs, bag of chips, a drink and the makings for s'mores. Anyone who cares to bring any other food to share, please feel free to do so.

For the clean up: plastic bags and latex gloves will be provided. If you have better thicker gloves at home that you would like to use, please bring them. It's also been suggested that if you want to use plastic buckets or burlap sacks to collect the trash, please bring them. This will cut down on the additional trash created by the plastic bags.

The city of Monterey requires that each participant sign a waiver form (for children and adults) prior to the clean up. Below is a link to the form. Please read and sign and return to me by the Wednesday the 5th. I am at Toro Park school every day for pick up or you can call me and I'll pick up the forms from you. I also need an accurate head count so we have plenty of supplies and food. Please RSVP with me via email or by phone, 831-663-1545, no later than Wednesday the 5th.

Every participant will receive the "Coastal Cleanup" patch. This will be given at a later date since we will not order them until we know how many participated. The Scout Council is having a design contest for the patch. Interested Scouts are encouraged to submit their design. Designs must be submitted to the Scout Office in Salinas by 5PM Sep 4th. There is a flyer which may be downloaded from the Council website at Scroll down to the link that says 2012 Coastal Cleanup Patch.

We hope you all can attend. It's a great way to serve our community and have a little fun too!

Cub Scout Leader Specific Training

Hello everyone.

The Scout council is offering training for adult leaders on Sep 15th at the Kinship Center on River Road.  Registration starts at 8:00 AM and training starts at 8:30 AM.  It should be done by 1:00 pm.

Since many of us are new to Cub Scouts, I think this training is vital and encourage as many parents as possible to attend.  There is a $10 registration fee.  The form to register can be accessed at the following link.  Once you click on the link, scroll down to the part that says Local Training. Under that you will see Adult training, and then a bit further down you will see Cub Scout Leader Specific Training.  That link will have the form.

When you fill out the form, we are in the Santa Lucia District

As many of you know, the Cub Scout Pack is the top level unit.  Within the Pack are Dens.  Each den is comprised of age specific boys.  First graders are Tiger Cubs.  Second graders are Wolf Cubs.  Third graders are Bear Cubs.  4th and 5th graders are Webelos Scouts.  What exactly that means, and how each Den is typically run, will be a major point of the training.

The more adults that are trained and the more that get involved with the Pack, the easier it will be for all of us.

thank you
