Pack Meeting Tonight at 7 p.m.

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween! Our November Pack Meeting will be tonight at 7 p.m. at GBE. Our November theme is COURTEOUS- Cubs in Shining Armor.

A Scout Is Courteous. How Does “Cubs in Shining Armor” Relate to This Point of the Scout Cub_Scout_CharactersLaw? A Scout knows good manners make it easier for people to get along together. The word “courteous” is an old English word that comes from the time of knights. Many associate chivalry and graciousness with a knight in shining armor because of their code of conduct. The knight’s code of conduct extols these virtues, ensuring that a Cub Scout in shining armor will exhibit courtesy to all.

pinewood_derby_logoEach year the cub scouts, their siblings (parents too) and some of our local Girl Scouts are invited to our Pinewood Derby Car Cutting Clinic sessions. These sessions are designed to teach the kids about some of the tools used, safety and to provide tips on design and construction of their cars for the big race (January). We get an early start so that everyone get get their car started before the weather around the shop turn cold. You will get some of the rough work done at the clinic and then take your car home to complete the sanding and painting.
