Hi everyone, Sunday from 2-3pm is Trial run’s and you can get your car checked to make sure it will qualify. Its not required to do a trial run it’s optional. Lions race will begin at 3pm! The Tigers, Wolves and Arrow of Light dens will get to race Tuesday beginning at 6pm! The Bears and Webelos dens will race Wednesday at 6pm! I do recommend that you get there 10-15 minutes early so you can get your car registered and inspected. The race will begin at the time slotted and anyone not checked in before then will not be able to race. Good luck everyone! Cubmaster Nick

Winter Fun Day is today

Good morning everyone. Winter fun day is today. Scout council has not canceled the event yet. Please check your email before leaving to go to the event to make sure it didn’t cancel. Parents please use your own discretion about driving to the event due to road conditions. Also make sure everyone is dressed in layers for the conditions that we will be in today. The park will be extremely muddy. The safety of everyone is priority over missing an event. Cubmaster Nick

Winter Fun Day

Posted on Jan 10 2018 - 9:57pm

Hi everyone! Winter Fun day is Saturday! It will be a good time and we have a big group going... Reminder I need everyone who registered for the event to fill out parts A&B of the medical forms that means parents and siblings too. Only if you registered if you are just taking your scout but did not register I do not need the form. I must have everyone's forms in my hands when I sign us in as a group saturday. Anyone who does not have the forms filled out will not be able to participate. This is direct from the Scout Council and the paperwork says no exceptions. I have 16 forms out of 60 registered people. Get them to your den leaders, or make sure you have them with you the day of the event. thanks Cubmaster Nick

Hi everyone! A reminder to everyone to get their Winter Fun Day money in. The deadline is January 3rd but you don't have to wait until then to turn it in. You can contact your Den Leader or myself and we will gladly get you signed up. Also remember to work on those Pinewood Derby cars. There are awards for fastest cars and for best design. The 3 fastest cars in each Den are eligible to go on and compete at Districts in April. Pinwood derby trials are 1/21/2018.Hopefully everyone is starting to make plans and pick your decade for our Blue and Gold dinner. I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas!
