Steve purchased Peterson Bird guides and Larry has a wildflower guide that he'll share.
We will do a pack outing at Step Right Up (hotdogs and doughnuts) during the week sometime this month. Cubs will get to see the doughnuts being made. 10% of the purchases will be donated back to the pack.
The Blue & Gold Banquet at Happy Days Visitor Center will cost about the same (ESTIMATE is $12 per person, 4 and under free). 1 to 4:30pm. Entertainment is probably going to be a Scout specialist who will show us how to start fires and other survivalist skills. Some families will bring baked goods for desserts for the B&G; cookies and brownies. We also need to clean up the facilities afterwards. We need to borrow some tables from the church. We will reserve a date with the Hudson Holiday Inn next year; March 14th is ideal.
Pinewood Derby is 3/7 with practice on 2/28. Dave M. will pick up patches. Dave H. will forward trophy information to Steve M.
Pack Meeting: (Theme is ABC's of America -- Steve will go through tourist sites in America by alhpabet)
Wolves = skit
Webelos = opening
Bears = baked goods
Den leaders: Make SURE your den has a pre-pack meeting activity planned so kids DO NOT run around like chickens with their heads cut off before the meeting. One corner per den. Be EXTRA cautious about spilling anything on the carpet.
