Pack events for the year

Our Pack Committee met twice for planning purposes. Once in August and then Sept 1st.  We hammered out a lot of details, budget, finances, ISAs and got a lot done.  they were both very good meetings.  We also secured, I believe the meeting room at the local pizza hall for our meetings.  Most everyone has a project/event to do.  More will be dealt with once Join Night is done.

This does not take into account other District activities. Last year we had our first Cub-O-Ree in April.  Hopefully, that will happen again.  Plus there is a Camporee that the Webelos will go to.

Our philosophy as a Committee now is that we need to provide an event a month.  It keeps the Scouts and parents engaged within the Pack.  It also allows me to interact with them if I do not see them at Den Meetings and see how they are doing.

As for the Pack Meeting’s we are working on that.  September is Join Night and I will post about that seperately.  October is going to be the Bobcat induction & special 60th Anniversary event.  Nov & Dec not set.  However, January will be the return of our First Aid event.  Which is actually going to be a Emergency Preparedness Event.  Which, I am thinking that it will include Shelterbox. Using these ideas along with our planning, it should be a huge success.  I already have Doug Metz looking for a local contact in the Portland area.

Our other goal is to work on having more service/conservation projects.  Most of them are listed, but we are working on a Leave No Trace and a Earth Day event for April and working at a Foodbank in Dec/Nov.

The one nice thing is that I visited my District Exec and his boss, in which I they told me about opportunities for the 9/11, which would have worked if we would have known sooner.  However, one activity could have been handing out Pins/Flags at the Portland Airport.  The TSA actually called to see if the BSA Council could do it.  I explained to them that if there are those types of events that you need a Cub Scout Pack, to let me know.

So, it’s beginning. The 2011-2012 Scouting Year!

Oh, and it’s only 157 days to #100daysofscouting!
