Welcome Den Chiefs!

 

  • Shane Rodi
  • Ashton Reece
  • Christopher Donelson
  • Nicholas Pollock
  • Miles Pollock

 

We’re glad to have you all aboard!  I’m currently checking with Council to see if there will be a Den Chief Training coming up soon, otherwise we’ll do the training.

Check back here frequently, this is the section where we’ll post all the Den Chief Information.

If you’d like to attend this Thursday please feel free to come and introduce yourself!

Hey all!

Sorry I got a late start on sending this out.
Homework before Thursday:
  1. Patrol – Think of 3 Animals they’d like to use as our patrol!  Remember – they’ll be making their own patrol flag, and we’ll have patrol patches.  The Black Panther seemed to be a popular one: Example patrol patch:

  2. Pick 3 Electives they’d like to see us work on!  We’ll try to do as many as we can, but I definitely want to do the fun ones first if possible! – See attached list of possible electives, and then look through the Webelos Book for more information related to those electives.

Just let me know if you have any questions!
See you all Thursday!

Committee Meeting 10/04/18

 

Welcome Parents!!  

Popcorn:  Michelle and Rhoel will give a small presentation, we have show n sells on calendar ready to go!  Very very important, because this is our only fundraiser. We could possibly have a survival kit fund raiser as well with enough interest.

Updated Dates for Fall-Family Camp.  We do our own Fall Family Camp, however, anyone interested in going is welcome to go, $30.00 for every family member.  Session I – October 26-28, Session II – November 2-4, Session III – November 9-11

Beach Sweep –November 3rd…. I will be making awards for scouts who participate ☺

Webelos Woods – I’d like our Webelos to do this for sure November 16th – November 18th, $45 for scout, $15.00 for parent.  Webelos Woods is the first opportunity for Webelos Scouts to learn what Boy Scouting is all about. A weekend camping trip that introduces them to Boy Scout camping using the patrol method, in a Scout-led outdoor adventure, supervised by adult leaders, and with parents nearby.  This weekend event gives the Webelos a little taste of the independence and self-reliance they learn in Boy Scouts. Webelos Woods helps to earn their Arrow of Light and will also help them to cross-over to Boy Scouts.

We need to pick dates for our Pack Fall Family Camp at John Thomas Property.  We can pick any of the weekends in November, I’d suggest moving the beach sweep to November 3rd, and picking November 10th for our campout if that makes sense.  Let me know though. Otherwise we’ll end up in December for our Camp Out which isn’t bad (could be cold), but we’re doing another in January. We voted and agreed on November 10th.

Importance of Uniforms, Oath, Law.  Parents practice at home with your scouts!!

Get T-Shirt Orders going so we can order some more pack T-Shirts!  Zip up hoodies? Order your tshirts and we now have zip up hoodies for sale too!!  

How can we be less wasteful as a pack? Recycle at banquet dinners…..

Committee positions to be filled: Secretary, Event Coordinator, Christmas Float Committee (3 people) Jamie will be our secretary this year and take over the Committee Chair position next year.  Michelle still needs someone to volunteer for Popcorn kernel next year , and we still need Christmas float volunteers.

Paying Dues and other scouting fees…please utilize our website whenever possible to pay any pack related dues.  Also, include your scouts name on the transaction so we can post the money to the correct scout’s account.

Treasury Report:  Lacey (treasurer)   $370.00 is our starting balance for the year.

Normal Den meetings this Thursday!

Very Important: If you are not a tiger parent, please go to the committee meeting which will be held in the room across from the fellowship hall led by Whitney Olson!

Popcorn Sales start October 6th!  Get ready to sell!

See you Thursday!

All,

The welcome back for existing Scouts is cancelled this week.
Please be safe, don’t forget to get the following if you’re evacuating:
  1. Important Documents
  2. Any small irreplaceable items you can bring with you
  3. Pets
Other tips:
Before you pick up and go (and if you have enough time) follow these steps — they’re designed to protect your pets and help prevent property damage: Clear your yard. Remove any objects hanging on trees or your home’s exterior, such as birdhouses and wind chimes — they can break off in high winds and cause serious damage. Bring inside anything that’s not nailed down including lawn furniture, trashcans, toys, and garden equipment. Shut off utilities. Turn off electricity, water, and gas. Doing so will help prevent additional dangers including flooding, fire, and explosions. Keep in mind, you’re going to need the utility company to turn your gas back on when you return home. Windproof windows and doors. If you don’t have storm-proof shutters, fit plywood coverings over all windows. (FYI, using just tape on windows is not recommended because it will not stop windows from breaking, just shattering.) Protect indoor stuff. Move valuables to higher levels in your home to prevent water damage. As an extra measure, wrap electronics and furniture in sheets, blankets, or plastic drop cloths. Gather up pets. If it’s not safe for you to stay, it’s not safe for Fido. Make plans to stay with friends or at a pet-friendly hotel — most emergency shelters will only accept service animals that assist people with disabilities. Lock your house. Because crooks and looters take advantage of evacuations, lock all doors and windows and don’t leave house keys in an obvious place, such as a mailbox.

If you’re staying, please check this out for reference as far as things you might need:
Be Safe and Smart!

Arrow of Light Badge

The highest rank in Cub Scouting is the Arrow of Light. Earning this rank prepares a Webelos Scout to become a Boy Scout. Scouts must complete four required adventures and three elective adventures to earn the Arrow of Light rank. For each adventure a boy completes, he receives a pin to wear on the Webelos colors or on his hat.

Arrow of Light Knot

The Arrow of Light badge is the only Cub Scout badge that can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform when a boy graduates into a troop. Adult leaders who earned the Arrow of Light rank when they were young may also show their achievement by wearing a special square knot on their adult uniform.

Webelos Colors

Webelos BadgeWebelos Badge

Webelos dens are for boys who have completed third grade (or reached age 10). Webelos Scouts get to work on the five required Webelos adventures and choose two of the 18 elective adventures that are shared by the Webelos and Arrow of Light ranks. When a boy has done the requirements for an adventure, the Webelos den leader, rather than a parent, approves most of the adventures. For each adventure a boy completes, he receives a pin to wear on the Webelos colors or on his hat. After completing seven adventures, including five required adventures and two elective adventures, a Scout can receive the Webelos badge.

After he has earned the Webelos badge, a Webelos Scout can work on the remaining 18 shared Webelos and Arrow of Light electives until he finishes fourth grade (or turns 11 years old). He can choose elective adventures that may show him new hobbies and teach him skills that will be useful during his Boy Scout years. When he completes an elective adventure, he receives an additional adventure pin to wear on the Webelos colors or on his hat.
