Also today we had three of our scouts attend the Hometown Heros event to help SAFE. They helped collect a lot of food for our local Food Bank! Remember we have lots of families in our area that need help, so if you can help come up with any ideas that the scouts can help SAFE collect food, please let me know!
This coming weekend is the Dad & Lad campout. I hope we have a lot who signed up to attend. I know that Mike Solomon and Travis Crabtree have signed up, so be looking for them at camp. You should not need to bring a tent, but if you have one I would take it, but if you are new to scouts they have tents at Camp Cherokee which is in Yanceyville, NC about 30 miles north from here. You probably only need to take a sheet, bed roll and pillow for the tents.
Our plan is to acquire some additional Rain Gutter Regatta kits, so that Travis will have them at Dad & Lad for purchase for $4, remember your scout can only race one boat. If you are not going to be camping this weekend, you can make arrangements either with me to get a kit over the next weekend or you can always go to the Scout Store in Greensboro or Raleigh depending on your travels and get a kit.
Reminder - To attend the Burlington Royals game you will need to sign up & pay Pack 65 either with scout bucks or personal money by July 16 to be included. You will cover all of your family members that you plan to attend and no refunds will occur. July 14 is the Alamance District Putt-Putt event at 6:30 pm. This event does not require that you sign up, so just show up that night and pay at the counter for how many family members want to play Putt-Putt. Cost is $8 per person, covers 2 rounds of golf and 20 tokens. July 16 is our Rain Gutter Regatta race along with pack hike and bring your own picnic lunch. This is at Lake Michael from 10AM-2PM. We will start with the hike, then the boat race and finally a late lunch. Remember they offer fishing and paddle boating for an additional price.
Also July 12th, the Bear Den is meeting at the Boy Scout Cabin to work on one of their elective adventure loops they need for rank. I would like to encourage other dens to meet at least once, if not twice over the summer with their dens, if you would like to use the Boy Scout Cabin, let me know and I will see if it is available.
Reminder on the Mountain View Ruritan Chicken Sandwich fundraiser coming real soon to assist with Southern High School scholarships.
Yours in Scouting,
