Happy Halloween Scouts

November updates:

Happy Halloween everyone

Hi everyone. October was a great month for our boys, they had lots of fun, and are learning a ton about scouts.

First lets all say thanks and happy to have you aboard to Al Scott the new Tiger den leader.

Thank Al! You made a great decision.

For all the boys that helped at the Beach Clean up the patches will be here soon, in early November.

It's new T-shirt time. We are going to get new T-shirts this year, so if you did not get one last year or are new to our pack your chance is around the corner. Please note, the scout T-shirts are completely optional and you are not required to get one.

We have added two new pages to the blog. The first is all about popcorn sales. If your son is interested in popcorn sales, and contributing to the pack in a big way we are doing our sales via the web this year. To find out more visit that page. To get your son's user id and password contact the cub master Paul Gokey

We also have a page dedicated to the pinewood derby. All about the rules and reg, including how the derby got it’s start. Please note the rules are not yet complete on this page, but we will have them in the completed form soon.
Our next big agenda in the pinnacles hike set for Nov 7th. We are meeting at the Nob Hill parking lot in Salinas at 9:30 for anyone that wishes to car pool. Please have your son wear their scout t-shirt if they have one. Please go to the sign up sheet to add your name so we know to expect you, and we do not leave before you get to the meeting place.

The Nob Hill address is:


Bring everything you need for a comfortable hike.
We recommend plenty of drinking water, food and beverages, flashlights and hiking equipment. They will need a lunch, snack, water, hats, and sunscreen.

Please be aware that the pinnacles has poison oak, stinging nettles, and rattle snakes do live in the rocks.

We will hike the Balconies cliff-cave loop trail:
2.4 miles round trip, 1 to 1-1/2 hours
Elevation: 100 feet
Easy to Moderate
This trail crosses up and over the Balconies Cave, then descends back down to the Old Pinn trail, which leads back through the cave. Scramble through the talus passages of the Balconies Cave. Wading may be necessary in the winter when precipitation creates flooding. Flashlight required in cave.

The entrance fee is $10.00 a car and kids under 12 are free

from the West Entrance:

Take Hwy 101 North to the town of Soledad.
Take Hwy 146 east.
Be aware that highway 146 turns into a one lane road, drive with caution. Follow Hwy 146 for 14 miles into Pinnacles National Park.

Monday meeting

Hi all,

This Monday is our scout meeting at the normal time of 6:00pm. If you saw the last post it said 7:00pm, that time is incorrect. Please plan for the meeting at the normal time of 6:00pm.

Also we are in need of some help in planning for the Salinas Veterans Day parade. We need a volunteer to assist in the preparation and organization of our part in the Parade. It will not be that much work as we have done this in years past, but we do need someone to jump in.  Whoever is interested please contact Lucy or Paul for more details.

FOUND: We found a tan scout t-shirt and a pair of black water shoes from the sandcastle build this year. If you are missing one or both of these items please contact Paul the Wolf den leader.

Hi All,

We have a den meeting Tomorrow, Monday the 12th. The meeting starts at 6:00 pm.

We hope to see a lot of new scouts as well as our old scouts. Bring your friends we would love to have new scouts sign up. The tigers are clawing their way to the top, the wolf are having a howling good time, and the bears are barely believable in how well their are doing.

There's talk that we might even have a new WEBLOS den starting. come and join the fun. The address is posted on the main page of the blog.

We had a great time at the sandcastle build and won, best sandcastle by kids. We also did the Harvest Carnival, and our boys did great. Thanks to everyone that helped out. at both the events.

Please remember the pinnacles national park hike is just around the corner. This is one of our favorites.
