posted Sep 10, 2020, 10:34 AM by Cubmaster Pack 29

It's POPCORN time. Attached is the popcorn newsletter.  It contains important information on this years sales. There is a call in September 10 at 6pm to walkthrough the website registration. If you registered last year, you are still in the system.  Your scouts selling link/code is the same.  We are asking that web orders are pushed for the month of September and door-to-door sales using door hangers are used for October. The reason is that the order for the door hangers will not be arrive until late November.  The ordering sheets will be provided to your den leadership to hand out in late September.

September Itty Bitty and Geocache event

posted Sep 3, 2020, 1:43 PM by Cubmaster Pack 29   [ updated Sep 16, 2020, 12:50 PM ]

September is BUSY!
The itty bitty scavenger hunt and geocache is live at the Forestry Preserve.  Attached are the instructions and locations.  We not sure how hard these are.  We tried to make them easy. Please comment on the difficulty and if this was fun.  The itty bitty is designed for younger scouts and the geocache is setup for older scouts. Scouts can be both, if they want. Patches will be handed out for the scouts that complete the events. There is no set time and these are drop in events meaning you can complete them anytime the Preserve is open.  Reach out to your den leader to see if this is going to be a den event.  Each event should take about an hour. Hints for the Itty bitty is also part of the listed files, just in case :)
