Training Training Training March 15th

Thanks to everyone for a fantastic Blue and Gold Dinner.  Everything turned out great, and I think the boys had a blast as well!!

Trained leaders are vital to the success of our Pack.  There is online training available, but there will also be live in person training in Salinas on March 15th.  In about a year, the 4th graders will graduate from Cub Scouts and cross over to Boy Scouts. This will be with a Troop, and not the Pack.  All of the parents filling Pack leadership roles will most likely transition out of the Pack as well, so it is very important that we start identifying replacements for Cub master, Den Leader, etc.  This training will go over the responsibilities of those roles.  By going now, it does not commit anyone to taking on those roles, but it does prepare us for the transition we will experience in a year.  Please mark the date on your calendar and try to attend.  As many people as possible would be great.  The Pack will pay your $10 fee.

Flyer is below.

Our next regular meeting is Monday March 10th at 6:30 at the Church.  Our District Executive, Renee Forrest, will be giving a short presentation on Friends of Scouting, which is a fund raising effort that supports the larger Boy Scout organization. 

Our theme for March will be Citizenship.  More info will be coming on that.

I mentioned the belt loops website at the dinner.  It is:

As you can see there are quite a few belt loops the boys can work on.  A few of these we will do as part of typical Pack activities, but the boys are welcome to earn as many as possible. 

There were a few questions about camping.  We are planning a Family Camp at Pico Blanco Scout Reservation over the Memorial Day weekend.  More details to follow as we get closer.

Check the calendar tab for all upcoming activities.

Meeting 10 Feb

Just a reminder our regular meeting is Monday night Feb 10 at 6:30 at the church.

Remember to do your homework!  We want to sign off as much as possible for the boys so we can hand out those awards at the Blue and gold dinner (remember to sign up!).

We will also be doing the "Pie in the Face" of our Cubmaster Bryan, as reward for those boys who met the popcorn sales threshold.

Here is the list of throwers.

We had a great time walking around Monterey today.  Thanks to everyone who was able to be there.

Sunday hike

Hello everyone,
As you know, the weather could be wet on Sunday.  If there is a steady downpour, I can't imagine this would be much fun, so we would cancel.  If it is off and on, I suggest still meeting at 2pm.  We can decide then if we want to go for the walk or maybe do something else.  For now, meet at the Portola plaza, downtown Monterey, at 2pm. 

Sign up for Blue and gold and t-shirts!!

Class B (t-shirts) and Blue and Gold

Hello everyone,
So far just over half of our families have signed up for the Blue and gold.  For those who have not signed up, please do so in the next week.  If you know you won't be going, please let me know.  We need an accurate count in order to start planning.

I have created another page on the attendance spreadsheet for the t-shirts.  See the previous post for the link.  Please place your t-shirt order on the spreadsheet.  T-shirts are for the boys and the adults.  Sizes run a little small. 

Thank you
Steve Tackett
