What the Entire Pack is "Doing" Together...

Update on upcoming events

posted Jan 20, 2021, 6:06 PM by Cubmaster Pack 29

We had to alter some of the upcoming events due to the spike in COVID cases, request from Auburn City Schools to limit extra curricular activities, AUMC not open and some guidance from local scouting units. The pinewood derby workshop and race have been pushed out to mid to late March. The next event will be an outdoor event (geocache) Feb 6 with the location and time TBD. This will be a social distance event.
We are finalizing the spring trip. Most locations are still limiting space and activities. With that being said, we are going to have a family campout for the Pack 29 spring trip in the Auburn/Opelika area with date TBD.
Your den leader will be reaching out to you about upcoming den events. They will have your pinewood derby cars. Extra cars can be purchased for $5. There is the Outlaw race where the only rule is that there are no rules. This is an opportunity for the parents or siblings to build a car and race for fun. Past Pack members are welcome to come and race too. Your den leadership will also have your scouts prize for selling popcorn. Most of the prizes were handed out at the drive in movie in December but there is a few items that were not handed out.

Hello Pack 29 Families.
November Pack event is LIVE.
What: Rocket build and launch
Date: November 15
Time: 1 hour blocks starting at 1 pm
The November Pack event is a rocket launch.  This is a two location event.  The 1st location is to build the rocket on campus.  The second location is to fire the rocket off of Chadwick Lane (HWY 14 across the road from University Station RV Park).  Look for Pack 29 signage off of Chadwick Lane.  
For this event, we have set aside one hour blocks.  1st part of the hour is to build the rocket on AU campus.  There is some time to drive to the launch site.  Total time for the event is estimated to be an hour per group.
The group size is capped to 10 scouts per hour signup.  Families are invited to come as well but during the build, we are asking that scouts be accompanied by just one adult while building the rocket.  This part of the event is inside.  Other family members are welcome to wait outside during the building of the rocket.  The second part of the event is outside but we are still taking social distancing into account.
We are planning on the following 30 minutes to build on campus-15 mins to travel to launch site-15 to fire off the rocket.
