Spring Campout

Spring Campout:
The Spring Campout will be May 14-16 at WPAFB (Wright-Patterson Air Force Base). Den leaders need to know the following for the WPAFB security application:

1) who will be attending
2) what their ages will be on May 14th
3) if they plan on arriving on Friday evening or Saturday around noon.
NOTE: Entire families are welcome to attend this campout!

We will probably try to go down as two groups, one on Friday and one on Saturday (although I know there is potential for a lot of different departure times on Friday depending on work and school schedules). Those that want to can meet up at Young's Dairy on Saturday around 11:30am to all have lunch together. Then we can drive over to the WPAFB Museum as a group and have about 4 hours of fun there before heading over to the camp site on the base.

January 2010 Committee Meeting Minutes

Steve C., Steve M., Randy, Jeff, Doug, Larry, Ed, Lance, Dave M., Dave H.

Hello Leaders,

Thanks for the great turn out at last night's committee meeting. We must have all been itching to get out of the house as much as our wives are glad that school's started again.

Pack meeting this Friday (1/7): CAKEWALK!!!
If everyone doesn't know by now, the Father-Son Cake Walk is Friday night at 7:00pm. This will take up the entire meeting. The only other thing we have to make time for is the opening, which the Tigers will be doing with the help of Grant Coleman and some other Webelos 2.

We will put duct tape on floor for numbers
Scouts will receive the number for the cake number they land on.
Den leaders, please notify your members to bake a cake for this Friday! See last year's photos for inspiration (Jan. 2009 archive).

We may call the numbers 4 at a time this year. If this is the case, we may have time for a game or three of SOCK. Dave Heater, if you have them, please bring them.

Other items for the meeting:
- All Leaders - Bring a box or two to help for transporting cakes home
- Randy Coleman - Blank Certificates
- Steve Mileski - Duct Tape and marker for the numbers, name plates and numbers for cakes
- Dave Heater - Music and Camera

Like last year, we will need the assistance of a few moms or big sisters (no names...Brittney Kozar) to help write down the categories for each cake and to help match up the scout's number w/ his prize cake.

As in years past, if any scout is so in love with his cake that he can't bear to give it away, then he won't be able to participate in the cake walk. He can just sit off to the side knowing that in about 2 hours he'll be digging into his delicious masterpiece.

Future Events:
Bowling Event:
We decided at the pack meeting to have our own Bowling Party instead of participating in the MOE Bowling Event. The main reason for this is due to the MOE Bowling Event being held this Saturday which doesn't leave us any time to get a list of scout families for sign up w/ payment. We have decided on January 16th probably from 11:00 to 1:00pm. The time will be nailed down once Randy "Strong Arm" Coleman (more shrewd than an Arab trader) works a deal w/ Stonehedge or another local alley. Scouts will be paid for by the pack. Siblings and parents are welcome to bowl but will have to pay. I will go around to families present at the pack meeting and see how many will be bowling and collect payment if possible. We don't know exactly what the cost will be. This depends on how well Randy can coerce the bowling alley. Likely, the more bowlers, the lower the price. At this time it could be anywhere between $10 and $14.

Scout Sunday at HUMC:
Scout Sunday will be on February 7th this year at HUMC. The exact service is unknown at this time. This is a very special date as it is the 100th anniversary of Boy Scouts in America. We need to make a good showing this year to let the church know how much we appreciate their sponsorship. Last year we only had 5 scouts in attendance. I think we can easily have 5 times that this year. So please mark the date on your calendar. The service will be announced as soon as we find out.

Pinewood Derby:
It's not too early to be thinking about the Pinewood Derby. Practice run is 2/27, with the actual Derby on 3/6. Buy cars at Kamper City.
