Thursday night was the Alamance District Putt-Putt event and I must admit Pack 65 lead the way with 36 members of our pack present out of a total of 62. Scouts enjoyed mini golf and playing in the arcade. Two-thirds of the attendance was by our Pack and Troop 65.
Today we had our annual Rain Gutter Regatta event, but before racing started our scouts and many family members got some great exercise by hiking just over 2 miles. Thanks to all the parents who helped run this event. It takes a small army to pull these events off and we always need help. Congratulations to Jarrett Waldron who took 1st place, Ian Garris for 2nd place, and Jacob Eubanks in 3rd place.
I have posted the pictures from this weeks events on our Cub Scout 65 Facebook page and on the pack's website. I encourage all scout families to check out the pictures. If you have not requested being a friend on Facebook, please do so. Also, if you have pictures from any events, I encourage you to share them on Facebook.
We have the next couple of weeks off from scouting, so enjoy your summer break. Once we start into August we have a lot of events planned!
The finance committee will follow up with you on money turned in today to make sure we have all the numbers correct for paying for the Burlington Royals baseball game.
