Rock Climbing with the Boy Scouts 10/3/13

We got an invite from Boy Scout Troop 93 to join them at Sanctuary Rock Gym in Sand City (behind Costco).  This would be a great opportunity to find out about the Boy Scout program (the boys will transition mid-5th grade year).

Meet @ Sanctuary Rock Gym in Seaside 6:30 on Thursday October 3rd.  Climb until 8 or so.  Adults $15, kids $8.  Rental of shoes + harness is an additional $10 per person.

If you've never been to Sanctuary, it's worth a visit.  The kids have a great time.

PS:  See you all tonight @ Good Shepherd @ 6:30!

Sep 23rd meeting and October 5th sun/star gazing

Hello everyone,

Our next event will be our Pack meeting on Sep 23rd, at 6:30 pm at the Church.  The focus of this meeting will be Recruiting new Scouts, so invite anyone who may be interested in joining Cub Scouts.

Following this, we will resume our regular Pack/Den meetings on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month.

On Saturday October 5th we will have an outing to the Fremont Peak Observatory.  On that day they will be set up for Sun observing as well as star gazing.  The Sun observing period is from 2 to 5 pm.  We have not yet worked out all the details of an arrival time etc, but will do so soon.

The evening session begins at 8:00 pm.  Families are invited to one or both sessions.  During the time between 5 and 8 pm, we are considering a hike.  Fremont Peak is one of the hikes for the Monterey Hiking patch we are working on.  Details still to be worked out, including allowing time to eat dinner, etc.

The website for the observatory is here:

If you think you are interested in going, please go to the Attendance Page of the blog and add your name.  This will help us as we put our plan together.  The whole family is welcome.

Camping is available at Fremont Peak.  We are not planning to camp as a group, but if anyone is interested in camping with their family, you are welcome to do so.  You will need to make reservations.  Go to the following website for more information.

I have updated the Calendar page on our blog to reflect our Pack plans for the next several months. Dates through December are fairly firm.  Dates after the New Year are still being worked on. 

If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to ask Bryan Banks or myself (Steve Tackett).

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

First meeting Sep 9th at 6:30 at the church

Hello everyone,

We will have our first Pack meeting this coming Monday night at 6:30 at the Church of the Good Shepherd on Corral.

Our plan is to go over the popcorn sales fundraiser we are doing, as well as go over our rough plan for Pack activities for the year. 

We will also go over the Webelos rank for our 4th graders, and talk about the other Ranks as well, for those boys who are in the lower grades.

Hope to see you all there.

Also, we have a few signups for the Dad and Lad campout.  If you still want to go but have not signed up yet, please do so asap.

thank you
