March 2018 – Update #1

Hello Scouts & Scouters

We had a great February, and I’m excited to tell you all about March.

Mark your calendars for the next pack meeting which is March 27. Leaders meeting is March 20. We have workshop time during this for meeting for the boys. We have plans to help our Tigers catch up with their advancement, and can schedule more as needed.

Open Pack Committee Positions

Secretary, Public Relations Chair, Membership Chair and Fundraising Chair. We could use your help and would greatly appreciate new volunteers to help with planning in our pack.

Den Meetings

Our Tigers worked on Tiger Bites (healthy eating), and will continue working through their required adventures. Our Wolves will be doing their one mile hike. Our Bears are working on their Fellowship & Duty to God. Our Webelos will be working to fill in any requirements that boys are missing for their Webelos rank.

Spring Camp-Out

Our Spring Camp-Out was a ROARING success. The Webelos den planned and executed great activities. Not only did a number of our Webelos finish everything they needed for their rank, but EVERYONE had a great time. It was so awesome to see the boys and their families enjoying the time together.

MANY thanks to Mr. Tramell for bringing his boat, and letting all the boys take turns driving. See pictures here.

Spring Cub-O-Ree

The Cub-O-Ree for our district is April 13-15. Registration deadline is April 3rd. This will be the last chance for boys to complete outdoors requirements such as camping and cooking for their ranks. Registration is by individual families, though the Pack will camp together. More info and registration here.

Summer Events

We are are excited about our upcoming Summer Program. To help plan that, we need to know what summer program options interest you the most. Please take this quick survey to give your input.

Friends of Scouting

At the February Pack Meeting, our district Friends of Scouting representative came and talked about how our council is able to do great work because of Friends of Scouting.

He specifically talked about how Friends of Scouting donations made it possible for his troop in inner-city Houston to exist when he was a boy, for him to become an Eagle Scout, and for him and so many of his friends to become successful men.

Cubmaster’s Minute: A Scout is Trustworthy

A Scout tells the truth. He is honest, and he keeps his promises. People can depend on him. A reputation for being trustworthy is important to you now and in years to come. Your parents, teachers, and friends expect you to tell the truth and to keep your promises. They know they can rely upon you to do your best in every situation.

Yours in Scouting,
Skip Clarke
