The items below are events that are coming up in the near future and distant future as wells as updates on items discussed at our Committee meeting.
Daytona Scout Days Campout: January 21st through 23rd Alex and Rob B. will try and get there early enough to hold a good sized camp site. Please reach out to either and they will send a Pin of the location.
Blue and Gold Banquet: February 12th @ Lake Mills Park 2pm at Pavilion 4, this will be a time of celebration and activities for the pack. It celebrates the Founding of the Cub Scouts. We will provide more details as we get closer. If you would like to assist with this event please reach out to Stephanie Leardi.
Pinewood Derby: March 5th, we are still working on a location to host this event but we will be indoors this year. The Scouts have been issued their cars at the last pack meeting but if you did not receive yours get with your den leaders and they can supply them. Parents and siblings if you would like to participate in the fun of building and racing please bring $15 to the next den/pack meeting. The cost of the cars will help with awards and trophies for the Scouts. I hope everyone’s as excited as me…Start your engines…
Moss Park Campout 3/25 through 3/27 . If you haven’t been to this park it is really great. There is a large lake for fishing, trails for hiking, and lots of wildlife, the deer will come right up to you (please don’t feed or try to pet the animals). There is also nice restroom/shower facilities as well. If anyone is able we are looking for some activity ideas and volunteers to assist with them. Signups can be done through the following link: events.cfcpack39.org
Fishing: John is still waiting to hear back from FWC about doing a pack fishing trip to a stocked pond. When I hear back I will provide more information about this event.
Camp Cards: thanks to Marsha for helping out with setting up or Camp Card show and sells. The dates and locations are as follows: 2/5 Avalon Ace, 2/13 & 2/19 UCF Ace, 2/26 Dicks Sporting Goods Waterford. Please look at signing up for these dates and help build your scouts credit for future costs. The Pack will receive $2.50 from every card sold, $0.50 goes to the pack and $2.00 goes to the Scout’s account. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to Alex, Matt or John. You can signup at the link provided: events.cfcpack39.org.
T-Shirts: the shirt order is being fulfilled as we speak and will be issued out by next meeting. I will try to get with Alex and hand out the ones for those going to the Daytona Camp out so we can represent Pack 39 with Pride.
Pack Trailer: the trailer has had a few repairs done to make it better for longer trips, thank you Alex. There will be more repairs needed and will be done as soon as we can so we can have better organization for all our supplies and the ability to pack Scout supplies for camping trips as well.
Thank you for all your support and continued service to our Scouts. This is going to be an exciting year and we are looking forward to watching the Scouts grow through their journey to becoming the example of what Scouts are all about. Please continue to look at the calendar cfcpack39.org for events and check Scoutbook for other messages and resources. Have a great week.
