Blue and Gold
Our annual Blue and Gold will be this Saturday at 6PM at the Shriners Club in Burlington. This is our big event where we celebrate scouting and honor the scouts who have earned rank. We invite family and friends to attend. You will need to sign up and make a meat choice selection and pay before the event before or on Saturday.. Also if you plan to participate in the cake bake, please make sure to note that on the sign up sheet. We will have certificates for scouts who signed up for this event. If you are going to participate in the cake bake, plan to arrive no later than 5:45 to get your cake turned in for judging. The cakes have to be homemade, not store bought. The cakes will serve as the dessert for this event.
We need everyone to arrive by 5:45 so that we can start by 6PM. We have a lot going on this night and our goal is to finish by 8PM, but we will need to start on time!
Parents/Leaders the deadline for entering the awards will be Wednesday at 5PM, we will run reports that evening and make a list of what needs to be order that night for ordering on Thursday, so it can be picked up by Friday. Parents please turn in your scout books to your leaders on Tuesday night so they can record anything your scout as earned.
Our Hike on Saturday was changed due to road conditions and weather, so instead our scouts met at the Swepsonville Park and walked the mile long trail. We had 9 scouts and their families hike in the snow/ice which I think was a first for our pack. Thanks to all the scouts and their families for braving the elements!
If you still have food from scouting for food to turn in, you can do that Tuesday night. Give it to Travis.
March 2 our Webelos II will bridge to Troop 65, this is a very special event and all pack families are invited to attend. This will be at the Boy Scout cabin which is located just off Sweps-Sax Rd, it is the dirt road in the hard curve, named Jordan Drive. It is limited parking so carpooling is highly encouraged. They are asking families to bring snacks after the event. I would like to encourage the Webelos I families to attend to start the process of bonding with the troop.
Important Dates to Remember
* BALOO Training April 18 at Camp Woodfield

Beaver Day is the official work day at each camp facility. To obtain the Honor Pack Award at summer camp (Webelos Camp), each pack is required to have sent personnel to help get the camp ready for hundreds of scouts across the weeks of camp. This year, Camp Woodfields' Beaver Day is May 30th. It usually runs from about 0830 hours to about 1400 hours and lunch is provided at no cost to you. However, we need a head count of who is going so the proper amount of food can be provided. Chores include painting, power washing, limb and debris removal, trail clearing, etc... Please let Travis know if you plan to attend and what you can offer to help with.
Camp Cherokee Beaver Day is May 2 for the bridging Webelos Parents, similar format as listed above.
Yours in Scouting,
