District Roundtable:  Jan. 5th, 2017  7:00 pm at FPC

Our next Pack Leaders meeting is going to be held on January 5th at 6:00 pm at FPC. All dens should please have a representative at the leaders meeting. Parents are also welcome to participate to see what is going on with the pack.

We are also looking for new adult volunteers and have several immediate openings. If you are interested in helping as Pack Chaplain – Religious Emblems Coordinator, or Friends of Scouting Representative, please let the Cubmaster know. Cub Scouts is a volunteer run organization and without volunteers we can’t make the pack go!!

Pinewood Derby and Raingutter Regatta 2017

January Pack Meeting is Race Time !!!

The Pinewood Derby and Rain Gutter Regatta is a signature event for any Cub Scout Pack—it is definitely for YOUR pack! The Pack purchased a car or boat for every Scout. You will receive your car/boat at the December Pack Meeting. If you are unable to make it to the Pack meeting and still need a Derby car or Regatta Boat Kit, you can pick one up at the Derby Clinic on Sunday, Jan. 8th. You can also see your Den Leader or Cubmaster if you still need one.

Siblings are welcome to get a car and participate in the sibling race also!

Lion and Tiger Cubs will be racing boats in the Rain Gutter Regatta and all other scouts will be racing cars in the Pinewood Derby.

Derby Weigh‐In:
January 19th is a mandatory weigh‐in from 5:00 ‐ 8:00 PM at the First Presbyterian Church. Please take note that you will surrender your car/boat once it has been weighed until after the derby race. This rule is necessary to ensure that the cars are not modified after they qualify at the weigh‐in. For the Lions and Tigers, you can try out your boat. Please see the Race Rules to ensure your car or boat is ready to go for the racing.

Race Day:
Derby Races will be on January 20th starting at 6:30 PM. There will be awards for the top winners in each rank and then also overall pack winners. We will also have pack winners for Best Design and Best Paint Job.


More on Our January Theme...Obedient.

A Scout is Obedient. A Scout follows the rules of his family, school, and troop. He obeys the laws of his community and country. If he thinks these rules and laws are unfair, he tries to have them changed in an orderly manner rather than disobeying them.

These last few months you have had great adventures, but you have also learned about always doing your best and obeying the Scout Law. Rules and laws are important. Following the rules and laws help make our community a better place to live because there is order. I challenge each of you to do your best each day to make your community better by obeying not only the rules and laws of your home, school, and community, but by following the Scout Law each and every day. Remember, a Scout is obedient.

Try to incorporate the Scout Law core values into everything you do.
