Pinewood Derby this weekend

Posted by Scott Valler on Jan 23, 2015 in Events

Pinewood derby is this weekend!

The weigh in is Friday night from 6:00-8:00.

The derby is Saturday with races starting at 1:30.

We could use a few people to help with the races on Saturday.  We are need of runners who pick up the cars at the end of the race track and take them back to the staging area at the start of the track.  We also need a few people to help stage the cars.  This means reading the list of cars in each heat, and having them pulled and ready to go.  These are easy jobs that will help the derby run smoothly.  There is even on the job training:)  Please contact Pete Vaccaro if you are able to help (pjvaccaro7@gmail.com).

Thanks!

First Pack Meeting – Tuesday, September 9th

Posted by Scott Valler on Sep 2, 2014 in General

Our first pack meeting of the year is:  Tuesday September 9th at 7:00 p.m. at the LVE cafeteria.

There are a few items I want you to be aware of before the pack meeting to help things run smoothly.

Uniform: Scouts are to wear class A uniforms to pack meetings and to school that day. For our new tigers who may not have been able to purchase class A uniforms yet, please have your scout wear the scout t-shirt they received for joining.

Dues are due: The pack dues which include a year’s worth of BSA dues, class B uniform, pinewood derby car and all advancements are $110. We are offering a discount for those who pay by the September pack meeting. If you pay by September 9 dues will be $90 and the pack will take care of the BSA dues for your son. Checks will need to be made out to pack 3241.

Class B uniforms: I will be collecting t-shirt sizes for our class B uniforms (pack t-shirts). All scouts will receive this as part of their dues. Parents and siblings can purchase t-shirts for $15.

Camporee: Camporee will be October 10-11 with Webelos able to camp through the 12. The cost is $8 per camper; I will be collecting money at the pack meeting and will also be able to accept checks through September 26.

*We will also be getting information about popcorn sales at the first pack meeting.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if you need assistance with anything scouting:)
