Spring Campout Signup (Raccoon Riviera at Brazos Bend State Park) - September 26-28

Please join us for the Spring Campout, Raccoon Riviera, at Brazos Bend State Park on September 26 - 28.  Use the following form to sign up!
 
Please remember that a medical form will be needed AND all adults MUST have taken Youth Protection Training in order to participate. Please see your Den Leaders if you need help with either of these requirements. We will have a variety of outdoor activities planned for the weekend. 

If you've never been on a campout with the Pack, here's what to expect - we arrive individually at the campsite on Friday afternoon/evening. We pitch our tents (we will be camping in the "primitive camping" area of the park), build a campfire in the fire ring, let the boys explore a bit and bunk down for the night. On Saturday, we have activities throughout the day. We typically try to plan several types of activities, and we split the boys into several groups (so things are a little more manageable), and then we rotate through the activities. Some families arrive on Saturday and stay over Saturday night, while others camp out Friday night, participate in Saturday activities and then head home Saturday evening. But Saturday night is a great time, so those in for the long haul will have a great time until we wake up on Sunday morning, have breakfast and strike camp. We "Leave No Trace" and intend to leave the park better than we found it.

Please contact Camping Chair, Keith Derrington, or Cubmaster Erik Brownwith additional questions.

Pack 404 Spring Fundraiser! Joe's BBQ is Back for the Spring! March 22 to April 5!

posted Mar 24, 2014, 11:46 AM by Web Master

Joe's BBQ is back again for our Spring fundraiser! Our Scouts are selling the all of the same great-tasting, fully-cooked "heat 'n eat" items that made last Fall's sale such a success!

Just like last time, not only are we able to offer whole briskets, but also meat combo packages, sliced brisket, holiday ham and even dessert cobblers! Prices range from a high of $70 for a 4-5 pound average whole beef brisket to a low of $25 for a 5-pound cobbler! These items make great gifts, make holiday meal-planning or tailgating a breeze and have the well-known name of Joe's Bar-B-Que as a quality seal! We have no minimum orders to meet, but we would like each Scout to sell a minimum of three menu items (which ought to place our individual average around $100-$120 dollars), which will ensure that we meet our Spring fundraising goal. The customer feedback from our last sale was FANTASTIC, so we're happy to offer this once again.

Incentive! For any Scout who sells at least $100 in Joe's products, Pack 404 will cover 100% of that Scout's fees at our upcoming Spring Campout - the Northern Star Cub-O-Ree at Camp Karankawa in Sweeny, TX on April 25-27!

Sale details: Sale begins NOW! Once you've downloaded your order form (be sure to print both sides!), you can begin taking BBQ orders. Be sure to collect all payments up front, at the time of order. Checks are to be made payable to Pearland Cub Scout Pack 404. Pre-printed order forms will also be available at the March Pack Meeting on Tuesday, March 25. Sale ends Saturday, April 5 at the Pinewood Derby. All money and order forms must be turned in on (or before) this date.

Product Pickup Date: Saturday, April 12 at Southway Community Church at 11 a.m. As mentioned, Joe's staff will deliver our entire order to us, frozen and boxed, ready for delivery to your customers on the morning of the 12th. We will sort the orders and you'll be able to pull in, pick up your orders and deliver them... it's that easy! Please understand that the nature of this fundraiser will not allow us to ship orders, so please keep that in mind when communicating with your customers. Orders should be delivered to your customers a.s.a.p., in time for the Easter holiday (April 19-21).

Please direct any questions about this fundraiser to Donald Hayes or call 713.628.7077

Welcome to our newest Scouts (and parents!)

posted Sep 12, 2013, 2:01 PM by Web Master   [ updated Sep 12, 2013, 2:04 PM ]

Thank you to everyone who attended our open house ("rally") event at Southway Community Church on Tuesday, September 10. If you were unable to make it, there is still an opportunity for your son to become a Cub Scout! Please simply indicate your interest by clicking on the link in the sidebar at right labeled "Join the Pack." An email with your contact information will be delivered to our Pack Leadership and one of our Leaders will be in touch with you soon!

Scouting is for everyone. If you have financial difficulties that might cause you to think that a Scouting program is out of reach for your son, please contact us. Pack 404 administers a scholarship program to help families afford the costs of the program, and all information is kept private. Please contact Committee Chair, Donald Hayes at donaldhayes@swbell.net with any questions regarding scholarship application.

We have a number of exciting events right around the corner this Fall for the boys of Pack 404! If you have a brand-new Scouter (at any age level), you will want to attend "Bobcat in the Park," held at Resoft Park on Hwy 35 on Saturday, September 28. There are four sessions available, with a limited number of seats at each session so register soon! Your Scout will earn his Bobcat badge in a single sessions of less than two hours, PLUS there will be a Scout Shop on-site for you to purchase uniforms, handbooks and other equipment.

Our first Pack Meeting of the new year (a Pack Meeting is where all boys in all of the Dens and their parents all meet together) is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 24 at Southway Community Church (14011 South Freeway, Houston, TX 77047). Please make plans to join us. It will be very exciting to have all of our new Scouts in the building to begin their journey down the Scouting trail!

Thank You to Our Tremendous Blue & Gold Sponsors!

Our 2013 Blue & Gold Banquet was a smashing success, due to the support and involvement of the business leaders and their businesses shown in the graphic below. Pack 404 extends its thanks to each of these businesses and would like to ask all Pack 404 families to show our support in return by patronizing these places of businesses and buying from companies that believe in the Scouting mission and values.

In addition, we would like to thank the Blue & Gold Committee (Terry Owens and Amanda Hayes, Co-Chairs) and all of the volunteers who helped with set-up, execution, the event programming and the clean-up afterwards. Many other Packs hold Blue & Gold events that are no more than a cake and a few announcements. We are blessed to have leadership and volunteers that care enough to put forth the effort that it takes to produce a top-quality event. Thank you to Mary Cooper and Minuteman Press for the design and printing of our event programs and thank you to the individual Scouting families who worked hard to contact donor businesses or made personal contributions to the event. Thank you to eSigns.com for the $500 signage grant that allowed us to produce high-quality event signage that will last us for several years.

We sincerely hope that all Scouts and Akelas enjoyed this year's Blue & Gold experience and we are exceptionally proud of all of the Scouts who worked extremely hard to make rank advancement in time to receive their badges at the event. Hope to see you at next year's Blue & Gold!
