Movie Time

Posted on Aug 19 2016 - 3:12pm

Hi everyone! Sorry that I did not get a new post written for this week's e-blast but here is a reminder that we have our Annual Outdoor Movie Night tonight at the Trinity Presbyterian Church at 8pm. The weather looks great and it is always a great time watching a movie outside. We will have popcorn and beverages, if you have a favorite candy bring it along with a chair or blanket to sit on. Alos remember your Class B uniforms. If anyone would like to make a donation to the church to thank them for graciously letting us use their property to hold this event for free we will have a jar at the movie tonight. I hope to see everyone there for a great time as we get ready for the start of school and a new Scouting year! The Den Leaders and myself have been working on putting together a great year of Scouting. There will be some new things and all of the favorites as we hope to make Scouting a fun experience for your sons and hopefully for the whole family as well.

Hi everyone! If you are like me you are preparing your recording devices for an epic workload as the Olympics are starting Friday. I watch everything I can of the Olympics. I hope that you will take a break in your Olympic viewing to come out to Frances Slocum Park on Sunday August 7th at 6 pm for our evening hike! I will be there and ready to get a little exercise and enjoy nature. We recommend that everyone bring a flashlight or headlamp, a water bottle (hydration is important), proper footwear for a hike and maybe a camera to capture the moments. Ms. Folmar has provided directions for where to meet to start the hike. "Once you enter the park go past the park office and take the Left turn towards the ampitheater and camp store. Follow this road to the bottom of the hill. Right before the lake there is a small gravel parking lot on the Left side. We will meet there." I hope to see everyone there in class B uniforms. Also a reminder that the movie night is Friday August 19th at Trinity Presbyterian Church. We had to change the movie due to the Jungle Book being released August 23rd. Instead we will be showing Zootopia! If anyone has any questions or problems feel free to contact me at JoshuaCoy@msn.com or text me at #570-332-0215.   -   Cubmaster Josh

Hi everyone! I hope you are all staying cool and hydrated. The heat is turned up this summer and Troop 281 is at Camp and enjoying all this warmth! With all the craziness of the political conventions, Pack 281 has just what you need. Next Sunday, August 7th at 6pm we are taking a hike at Frances Slocum Park! Get outside and clear your head, maybe find some tranquility. Make sure you wear appropriate footwear and bring a water bottle. We will have more details as to where exactly we will meet very soon. In the meantime, enjoy Summer and anytime you feel too hot just think of shoveling all that snow that will be here so enough! Stay safe, stay hydrated! If you have any questions or problems feel free to contact me at JoshuaCoy@ msn.com or text me at #570-332-0215.    - Cubmaster Josh

Hi everyone! The Soda Bottle Rockets went great! We had a lot of Scouts and siblings out last Sunday to launch their 2 L soda bottles into the air and they had a blast! Our next event is Sunday August 7th at Frances Slocum Park at 6pm when we will go on an evening hike. It should be a lot of fun and I know I am looking forward to it. In the meantime enjoy the summer weather! It's getting hot so make sure to drink copious amounts of clear liquids! If you don't understand that advice then you need to send your Scout to summer camp next year! If your Scout went to camp they will be able to tell you exactly what that means :) Have a great week everyone. If anyone has any questions or concerns feel free to text me at #570-332-0215 or email me at JoshuaCoy@msn.com.   -     Cubmaster Josh

Hello from Camp!

Posted on Jul 13 2016 - 8:24pm

Hi everyone! This post comes to you from Camp Acahela! I'm here with our Arrow of Light Scouts. Earlier this week we had several Scouts from the other Dens that were here for Adventure Camp. We are having a great time doing a lot of activities. We did some Dutch Oven cooking (thanks to Mary Nafus for the oven and Troop 281 for help cooking) and it was delicious! Next year be sure to come out to Camp. It is an adventure you don't want to miss. This Sunday I will be back for Soda Bottle Rockets at 2pm at the soccer field by Dallas Elementary/Wycalis School. Bring an empty, clean 2 L bottle and get ready to blast off! Class B uniform event. If you have any problems or questions feel free to call or text me at 570-332-0215.  - Cubmaster Josh
