Spring is around the corner and things are getting busy once again. Here's what's on tap this month, and in the coming months:
MARCH PACK MEETING / BRIDGING CEREMONY - 3/21 Our March packing meeting is on Wednesday the 21st. We will return to our typical time and location - Seaman's lodge @ 6:30. This is another very special pack meeting where our Webelo II Cub Scouts bridge over into Boy Scouts. We celebrate the boy's journey and growth as they move forward.
NOTE: We'll also be distributing Camp Cards at this meeting. It's a great way to make scouting more affordable for your family. Your Scouts get's money, for Scouting activities, for each card sold.
CALIFORNIA ACADEMY OF SCIENCES - 3/24 & 3/25 If you are signed up for this event, expect a full email this week containing complete details. Here's some highlights for now: If you have not already provided this information, please do so ASAP. We are currently overdue in providing a complete roster to the CAoS. For each family, we need the following: First and Last Names of all participants in your party (adults and kids); Ages of the kids in your party on March 24th; Off-Site Emergency Contact Name & Phone Number. If you have not already completed, printed, signed, and turned in the Waiver and BSA A&B forms, please have them ready to turn in at the Pack meeting on the 21st. We need ALL of this paperwork completed beforehand. Plan to arrive no later than 5:30. We cannot enter the premise until the entire group is accounted for. We will be released at approximately 8:00 amSunday morning. Additional details to follow in a separate email.
LEADERSHIP TRAINING - 4/27 & 4/28 In order to meet the Boy Scouts minimum requirements, we need to have a trained leader on all overnight excursions. This is referred to as "BALOO" training. Currently, Cubmaster Dan Thiem is our only trained leader. We need any potential future leaders to consider BALOO training to ensure a smooth transition. We need a new leader trained THIS YEAR. The training will occur on April 27th and 28th.
NOTE: We're still looking for someone to step into both the Pack Leader and Assistant Pack Leader roles.
