posted Apr 8, 2013, 2:08 PM by Cubmaster Pack 29
Join us for our annual Spring Cookout followed by our Arrow of Light ceremony!  We'll have 9 scouts leave us to move on to a boy scout troop.  This is a great time to get out into the outdoors and fellowship with other scout families.  We'll also give out some awards for the last time until September.

Uniform: Class B
Meeting Time: 5:00 - 8:00 pm
Location: Forest Ecology Preserve (North Parking Lot)
Collection: New towels and bathing suits for Big House
  • Arrive whenever you like to check out the preserve.  You can hike and take in the nature at the preserve.  You can also bring a fishing rod and fish at the pond - this is special for this event only.  Make sure you are there by 6:00 because that's when we eat!
  • The Pack is providing hamburgers, hot dogs, and drinks.  Each family is asked to bring something yummy to eat.  Last names A-L are asked to bring a side dish.  Last names M-Z are asked to bring sweets and deserts.
  • You will need to bring the following with you for the evening:
    • Meal Item (detailed above)
    • Folding Chairs
    • Bug Spray

Directions to Location:

The Forest Ecology Preserve is located at 2222 N. College Street (Hwy 147) near Hwy 280 and the AU Fisheries. Coming from city of Auburn, you will drive north on College St. about 3 miles out of town. Once you pass the AU Fish ponds, the main entrance is to the right.  DO NOT go to the main entrance - instead, go to the north parking lot entrance. The north parking lot is on East Farmville Road. Continue down College Street past the main entrance and turn right at the flashing caution light (Farmville Road). The entrance is across from the Auburn water tower.  Park in the lot and make your way on one of the paths towards the fish pond.  Look for some Pack 29 signage.
