Before Christmas we had a big Christmas party for the scouts. They had pizza and made shrinky dink ornaments (Remember shrinky dinks????) and just ran around the school cafeteria and had a fun time.
In January the Pack attended a Pine Wood Derby. Jacob and his dad and grandfather worked hard on his derby car. If you don’t know, it comes as a solid block of pine wood, so it has to be carved out into a car shape and then sanded, painted, decorated, wheels attached etc. And it all has to be under a certain weight. The guys spent a lot of time on it and I was impressed with the end result.

The cub scouts go on at least five “Go See It” field trips each year. Our Tigers have been to a high school basket ball game, the library, the fire station, Panera Bread and most recently a tour of KSBJ. Will has some great pictures on his phone of the pack at KSBJ, really hilarious to see them all piled into the producer’s booth. I will post them next time Will synch’s his phone to the lap top.
Tonight Jacob, his dad and his grandpa are all at the Aeros hockey game. Jacob received free tickets as a reward for selling over $600 worth of popcorn – big thanks to those who supported our pack! He gets to go out on the ice, shoot a goal, meet the players etc.

In last week’s committee meeting I agreed to be assistant Cubmaster next year, in preparation to be Cubmaster the year after that! I am really excited about this opportunity to reach boys and their families, teaching life skills, solid values and faith in God. If you can’t tell – we LOVE scouting! Our upcoming Scouting events include a Blue and Gold banquet in February, Camping in March, Scout Fair in April, and end of year party in May.
