Family Camp at Pico Blanco over Memorial Day

Hello everyone!

Please sign up ASAP if you want to go on the family camp.  If you can do that by Saturday that would be appreciated.  Cost is $30 per person age 6 and over. 

You do not have to stay the entire weekend.  Last year most people arrived Friday night, but some came Saturday morning.  Most left Sunday early afternoon, but several stayed til Monday.  You can come for all or part of it.  The cost is set by the Council though, so we can't adjust that.  It will be the $30 per person regardless of how long you stay.

It is a lot of fun!  There is an archery range and a bb gun range.  They have a great campfire program Saturday night.

Our plan is for the Pack to put together a menu for everyone, which is why we need a good count if you are coming.  We will buy the major items, then ask families to bring things like cups, plates, etc.

If you have any questions let me know, but please sign up asap!

Also, sign up for the Scout Day at the Oakland A's as well.

Thank you

Pinnacles Hike Sunday April 27th and upcoming events

Hello everyone,
Our next event is a hike to the Pinnacles National Park. 

The hike is on Sunday April 27th.  We will meet at 10AM at the Nob Hill grocery store on South Main Street in Salinas.  I have added a page to the Attendance spread sheet.  Please sign up if you are planning on going.

Our next regular Den meeting will be Monday April 28th.

The event we have all been looking forward to, the Memorial Day campout at Pico Blanco Scout reservation is rapidly approaching.  If you plan to attend, please add your name to the sheet for Pico that I have also added to the Attendance page.  Cost for the Pico campout is $30 per person, age 6 and over.  Kids 5 and under are free.  This fee is set by the Scouts.

Since this is the first camping experience for many people, the Pack is planning on putting together a meal plan for the weekend.  We will purchase the main items, and then ask families to bring some of the smaller items. The Pack owns quite a bit of camp cooking equipment, so we feel it makes sense to do the cooking as a group.  If you don't want to participate, let us know.

The Oakland A's have a Scout day on Sunday June 1st.  Some folks have expressed interest, so we are going to check out the details.  I have added a page to the attendance roster for this as well.  If interested, please add your name.

If there are any questions, don't hesitate to let me know!

See you on the 27th!
