Shooting Sports weekend at Camp Woodfield, April 17-19, 2015. Scouts will get to shoot BB guns, archery, hiking and fishing. The cost is $30 per person to camp for two nights, which covers meals, programming & camping costs. If you stay just Saturday night the cost is $25, this is a great first time camping location. We encourage all family members to attend, adults and siblings are welcome to shoot, you just have to sign up . Deadline is March 31, we have to turn in the from by April 1 to get signed up. If you opt to fish, the pack has a few rod & reels that the boys can share. That same weekend, the council is also offering BALOO training, which is a camping class which is great for anyone to take.
Pinewood Derby event is Saturday April 25 from 9:30am-1PM. We will start checking cars in at 9:45 and hope to have the race started by 10AM. We will run our scouts first and then the Outlaw division, where parents and siblings can compete for fun. Our Pinewood Derby practice will be Friday night at 7-8PM, ONLY scouts who participated in the Scouting for Food effort in February can attend and practice. Both of these events will be held at the Eli Whitney Recreation center, which is across from the baseball fields.We need everyone who will be racing to signup . We also ask each family to bring a snack item and drinks.
Mom & Me is May 2-3, you have to signup and pay with the council to attend this event. Right now they are offering an early bird special for $40 for mom and scout but the deadline is April 1, 2015 to get that price, after that it goes up to $50. We are also having a signup sheet, just so we know which moms are planning to attend. So far we have four mom's and their scouts signed up from Pack 65, so don't forget to wear your orange Pack 65 shirts. They will have BB & Archery going on this weekend, plus they have people to help with tent setup.
BEJ is having their service project May 16 at 9AM at the school to help build a butterfly garden,if you wish to help
We have scheduled our End of the Year party for June 13, 2015 from 2-6PM at Lake Michael in Mebane. We will host our Rain Gutter Regatta and give out our last awards for this cub scouting year. This event will also count as the first event towards earning the Summertime Pack Award. To earn this award a scout must attend one scouting event each month across the summer. We will have a cookout dinner. The pack will supply the meat and scout families will be asked to bring sides, desserts, and drinks.
Webelos camp is a week long event for current Webelos I and Bears. This will jump start scouts on earning awards for rank. It also introduces the boys into camping, longer that just a night or two. It is held at Camp Woodfield and is tons of fun with full days of programming and the staff provide the food, so no cooking. To be included in this year's event, you will need to pay your deposit of $90 by the March 24th meeting to be signed up. The boys will be camping June 16-19, 2015.
Lastly, mark your calendars. We have booked a camping trip for September 18-20 at Jordan Lake. The Parker's Creek group camping site. We thought this would be a great way to get the familes ready for Camp Woodfield in October for Cub-O-Ree. I have a sign up sheet started if you are planning on going!
I know we have a lot of things planned, just remember you need to sign up for what you want to attend!
Yours in Scouting,
