Next meeting Oct 28th

Hello everyone,

Our next meeting will be Monday Oct 28th at the Church at 6:30pm.

For the 4th graders, we will be going over the Webelos Badge Requirements.  This is on page 49 of the Webelos book. Specifically we will be looking at requirements 3, 4, and 7.  I told the boys to study those items, so hopefully they have been working hard to learn them!

Item 8 is on Faith.  Faith is a very important part of Boy Scouts, but it is left to families to decide how they exercise their faith.  For the parents, please review item 8 and let us know when you feel that requirement has been met, and we will sign that off.

I also have some hiking patches for the Nisene Marks and Fremont Peak hikes we went on that we will be handing out.

Thank you and we will see you on Oct 28th!

Popcorn update

Hello everyone,
Our popcorn fundraiser is coming to an end soon.  Dj Hill emailed out an update on the deadlines.  If you didn't get her email we may not have your address.  Please email me directly and I will add you to our email file as well.

She has some product at her home, but this needs to go back to the warehouse Thursday the 17th,  If you have any orders still, let her know right away.

You can still sell up to Oct 23rd, but after her supply is returned on the 17th, she will have to order any additional popcorn you sell, to be delivered by Nov 8th.

So far, here are the totals we have for the boys.  This does not include any online sales your boys may have done. 

Gordy Hill : $399
Mark Foley: $250
Christopher Gida: $156
Aiden Banks: $126
Michael Tackett: $101
Noah Fouts: $73

We are doing pretty good, but let's see if we can get those numbers a little higher!

Next meeting Oct 14th

Hello everyone,
Our next meeting will be Monday Oct 14th at 6:30pm at the  Church of the Good Shepherd.

Our regular meetings are typically the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the  month. 

We have received several inquiries from new boys.  We will definitely have enough to form a Tiger Den, which is for first graders.  We will  need someone to be the Den Leader for that group.  If you have expressed interest in the Tiger Den, please be there at the Oct 14th meeting, so we can discuss forming of the Den.

We have received inquiries from Wolf and Bear boys as well, and I think we will have enough to from Dens for those groups, too, but it is important you come to the Oct 14th meeting so we can organize those Dens as well.

I have updated the calendar tab with our plans for the next few months.

See you all soon!

Hello everyone,
This Saturday is our visit to the Observatory on Fremont Peak.

The viewing windows are 2 to 5 pm for Sun observing and then 8 til closing for star/planet observing.

For those who are going, you can arrive whenever you like.  We are not setting a specific time.  If you want to do Sun observing then arrive as desired. 

At 5pm we will start our hike.  The hike is part of the Monterey Bay trekkers patch we are working on.  It is a short hike, listed as about one mile. 

Sunset is about 6:45 on Saturday.

Upon completion of the hike we will have some free time until the evening session begins at 8pm. 

If you plan to participate in all the events, be sure to bring along food to eat for dinner.

Our next scheduled meeting will be on October 14th.  More info will be coming out soon.

thank you
