Pinewood Derby - The annual Pinewood Derby is scheduled for Saturday, March 10th, 8:30 am-12 noon. In addition to the Den and Pack competition, we will have an “open” division, for siblings to compete. The rules for this year’s Derby are attached to the newsletter email for reference. In addition to the Derby itself, we highly recommend that you come to the weigh-in on Friday night, from 7:15-8:30 pm, as we will have the official scale there.
Scouts’ behavior at Pack meetings - Tone of the items we discussed at the planning meeting was how to ensure the boys are behaving appropriately at Pack meetings. We’re going to work on a seating layout that seems to have helped foster a more controlled atmosphere, but for all our parents, we appreciate your active engagement in keeping your Scout on track during the meetings.
March Pack Meeting Our March Pack meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 21st, 7:15-8:15 pm. We will be building kites in preparation for going to the National Kite Festival a little later. The meeting starts promptly at 7:15 pm, and the Wolves will conduct the opening and closing flag ceremonies; the Bears will have setup and the Tigers will have cleanup.
Blue & Gold - One more huge THANKS! to Carolyn Silvey, Gina Negrin, Melanie Liacouras, and Kristen Hellewell for putting on a great banquet!
Family Scouting Discussion - As mentioned in the note following our planning meeting, we had a relatively small and closely divided portion of the Pack parents at our discussion of whether to include girls as part of the Family Scouting program, so we have asked the Den Leaders to discuss the question with the dens before making a decision for the Pack. For those who are looking for more information, you can find additional materials on the national Scouting website at www.scoutingnewsroom.org, and on the council’s site at www.ncacbsa.org. If you have any ideas, input, or questions, please feel free to contact Howie or Eric.
