USS Hornet Overnight, April 2nd and 3rd

Hi Scout Families,

As most of you are hopefully aware, our next big event is the overnight stay on the USS Hornet in Alameda on Saturday, April 2nd through Sunday, April 3rd.  We need to provide a final roster of participants to the Hornet no later than 3 weeks prior to our stay, so please sign up on the blog NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, MARCH 11th, if you plan to attend.  Our final roster will include the names of everyone signed up by the 11th.

Cost is $70 per person for the family members.  The Pack will subsidize the Scouts that go for $20 each, so cost for the Scouts will be $50.  We will announce arrangements for payment in the next week or so since full payment for our stay must also be made three weeks prior.

The following link provides a lot of useful information regarding the various activities included in the stay, what to bring and not to bring, etc.:

We need to meet at the pier no later than 4:30 pm.  Boarding begins at 5:00 pm.  There is an initial safety briefing, then we stow our gear in our berthing areas, and dinner follows shortly after. 

There is a separate, optional cost, for anyone who would like to order dog tags for the visit.  They range from $6.40 to $10.90 based on whether you purchase one or two dog tags.

If you have any questions please let us know right away.  If you are not sure how to enter your name on the blog, also let us know right away.

We hope you will all be able to join us for this fun event!

fishing on Saturday and Scout sunday on the 7th

Hi All,

The fishing trip is Saturday. I will be at the lake from 7:00 am till 10:00 am. Please go to the blag and sign up on the spread sheet.

If you want to catch fish then you should plan to be there before 9:00. the fish will generally stop biting around 9:00 to 10:00

Catfish can be tricky, I or another experienced adult will handle taking all the fish off the hooks.

Some good suggestions for bait are worms, and PowerBait. I will bring a can of Powerbait, and give some to each boy. The new trout will like the PowerBait, and lures best. If you are not coming until later 9: or after, then worms will work better on the catfish.

Things to bring
  • A plastic bag or old cooler for the fish.
  • Small lure for the fishing line.
  • Food and or snacks for you and your son.
  • Water for drinking
  • Gloves if you think you want to touch the fish without really touching one.
  • Worms, can be purchased at the bait and tackle shop.
  •  a sliding sinker

Scout Sunday is February 7th. IF your scout wants to go for the pancake breakfast there is a 5.00 donation scouts should be in uniform and a pair of blue pants. The service starts at 9:45
