Spring Pack Camp-Out @ Bovay Scout Ranch

Posted: March 29th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

Hey Parents,

I just wanted to encourage everyone to try to come to the camp out April 25-28 at Bovay Scout Ranch. Bovay is a really nice scout camp. It has real bathrooms and showers. It is also close enough that you can run home if you forgot something ( or if you decided overnight camping is not for you). They have hiking trails and bikes are welcome. I’ve not been fishing there, but there is a lake. You don’t have to stay both nights, or you can just come for the day if you don’t want to camp overnight.

Bovay is set up a little different than Fort Parker. Instead of individual camp sites for a couple tents, each camp site can hold a bunch of tents so we will be camping in the same area. It will be much cozier and it is a lot easier to visit with each other. Each site has a covered area with picnic tables under it and there is one fire pit, water faucet and electric plug.

We will be cooking our own food, so this would be a good chance to get together with your den to plan a den meal together. As long as there is no burn ban in effect, we should be able to have a campfire in the firepit. I think we also may be planning on have a flag burning ceremony. We may have some den lead fun activities, and we may try to earn a belt loop or two.

Thanks,

Becky Connolly

Pinewood Derby

Posted: March 15th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

The derby will be held in the “Big House” (the smaller chapel just as you turn in where we have had a few Pack meetings)

We will set up on Friday evening, and will need parents there that have younger scouts so that they can learn how to set up the track. You guys will need to be able to set it up next year without us…… 🙂 Also, someone will need to shadow Markus to learn the software. It is easy, but again….next year we likely will not be participating.

Pack 60 – Pinewood Derby
March 23, 2013
12:00 pm – Weigh-In Starts – Christ United Methodist Church
1:00 pm – Race Starts – Christ United Methodist Church

The race STARTS at 1 p.m. If you are not checked in prior to that time, you will be out of luck. We have to have cars weighed and logged into the computer system PRIOR to start time. Please try to come as close to noon as possible as many cars will need to have additional weight added or taken away, and possibly a fix it or something…..once cars are checked in officially, nobody is to touch them except the one placing it on the track for racing until after the race.
