We will have a pack hike on December 18 at 10 AM at the Econ River Wilderness Area, located at 3795 Old Lockwood Rd. Oviedo. The Axolotl Patrol will be hiking 3 miles and the younger Scouts will hike around a mile. To sign up, go to the Event Sign-up section of the pack website, http://cfcpack39.org
Also, remember that we have Scouting for Food this weekend, Liger Growl 11/19-21, and the Space Coast Lightfest Campout on 12/3-5. You can sign up for all of these events on the pack website as well.
Please remember that pack dues are due as soon as possible. We will collect them next week and I will send out a link to pay online once it's set up.
The campout this weekend will be at Mullet Lake Park in Geneva. SignUpGenius had the old location listed, but it is at Mullet Lake Park. We'll be in the group site in the back of the camping area.
You can still camp if you didn't RSVP since we have enough room. If you want to camp but don't have a tent, we have some that you can borrow. Let me know in advance though so I can bring one. Even if you aren't camping, feel free to come by just for the day on Saturday. We'll be doing activities in the late afternoon on Saturday and will have a campfire in the evening, so if aren't camping but want to come by that would be a good time.
Bring shoes and clothes for the kids that can get wet, because we'll be doing some games where they'll get wet. The campground is right by the St. John's river, so you might want to bring fishing poles. Webelos should bring their pocketknives.
We're going to be camping at Mullet Lake Park on September 24-26. You can sign up for it on the pack website under Event Sign-Up. We need some volunteers to help with activities (come up with ideas, bring supplies, and run the activities). Please let me know if you plan on helping with this. Scouts are also encouraged to have a friend come visit on Saturday during the campout.
We will be having a pack meeting on Monday 9/13 at 6:30 PM. Scouts should wear class A uniforms and are encouraged to bring a friend who might be interested in Scouting.
Camp La-No-Che Cub Halloween is October 15-17. The signup link is on the pack website under Event Sign-Up.

We still have plenty of slots open for popcorn sales. You can sign up for more than one slot if you want. Popcorn sales give Scouts the opportunity to do some work to pay for part of their annual fees. Each Scout will get a portion of the proceeds credited toward their Scout accounts for every hour that they participate, which will reduce their annual dues. You can sign up for popcorn sales at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0e4eadaa2ba1f58-popcorn.
Our existing dens have started meeting, but new dens for different age groups will start meeting after we do a recruiting meeting. We don't have the date for our recruitment night, but it should be within the next month. If your Scout has siblings or friends that want to participate this year, please let me know. I encourage you to have your Scouts bring a friend to the den meetings and tell them about recruitment night once we have a date set. We're going to create some fliers to hand out, so please think of any places where you might be able to post them.
Please like our new Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CentralFloridaPack39. This will help it turn up in Facebook searches, which will help us with recruiting.
If you haven't done so yet, please look at the Pack calendar on http://www.cfcpack39.org/ to see the events we have planned for this year. I will start posting emails I send out to the news section of the website so you can see all of the updates in one place.
Looking forward to another fun filled year!
