This week is a busy week of cub scouting events. First on Tuesday night we have Ice Skating at the Triangle Sportsplex in Hillsborough at 5:45-7:15 for $5 per person. This includes the skate rental and it is a great thing to do on a HOT summer night! When you arrive you will pay at the front desk, tell them you are here with Pack 65 for the public skate. We invite all family members to come out and skate.
Then on Saturday at 9AM we have hike at Cedarock park. We will work on the Trail Trekker program and the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award and we would like to ask the den leaders to get with any parents about working on an Adventure Loop. Right now, the Wolf Den is going to work on "Paws on the Path", the Bear group has the option of working on "Fur, Feathers, and Ferns", if we have a parent to lead them and the Webelos can work on "Webelos Walkabout" Adventure Loop. Also at Cedarock Park they have Photo scavenger hunt going on right now and goes through July 26. They have points for items you find in the park and take a picture and post it online. I have posted the rules and items on our website (http://www.pack65nc.com/documents.html) . Any scout on our hike is welcome to take along the list and take pictures as we hike.
We also have Putt-Putt on August 4 for $9.
This year we are going to assign dens to setting up the tables and taking them down each month. Also during that month that den will be in charge of the flag ceremony, so they will need to arrive about 6:30pm. We also would like the parents of that den to help with the pack meetings and if a special event falls in that month to help with that event(s). Here is the schedule for the Dens: September Webelos II October Webelos I November Bears December Wolves January Tigers February Webelos II March Webelos I April Bears May Wolves June Tigers
Also as a reminder if you have yet to get your new scout handbook for the new scouting year, these can be purchased at Graham Sporting Goods in Burlington near Lowe's Home Improvement, so you do not have to go all the way to Greensboro for these items.
Thanks to the parents who are already working on securing several popcorn locations. If you have any suggestions for new locations for us to set up popcorn show & sale spots, please send those to me soon.
Yours in Scouting,
