It’s time for the Buckhorn Tri Tip Fundraiser! The price is $22.00 per Tri Tip and $2.00 from each Tri Tip will go back to the boy that sold it as credit for camp, over nighters, etc. You will collect the money up front, and provide your den leader with the total count and payment by the 23rd of May. (We will be submitting the order and payment to Buckhorn the next morning). Checks should be made out to Pack 132. Den leaders will need the following information from each scout:
Monday, 16 MAY 2011 – A preliminary count of how many Tri Tip your scout has sold at that point. This is for planning purposes only.
Monday, 23 MAY 2011 – A final count and payment by 7:00 PM.
Monday, 06 JUN 2011 – Tri Tip Distribution. Details to follow later, but it will be from Stone’s Catering right near David Grundler’s office.
Checks should be made out to Pack 132.
There is an area on the flyer that should be customized with the scout’s name and some contact info if the flyer is left with a customer.
Join Pack 132 for a visit to the Western Railway Museum!
Families can experience California as it was 100 years ago. Take an electric train trip through the peaceful, picturesque Montezuma Hills over the original historic main line of the Sacramento Northern Railway. As a living history museum, the Western Railway Museum gives visitors the opportunity to ride authentic historic streetcars and interurban electric trains from all over California and the western United States.
The pack will take the first Interurban train ride at 11am
There will be streetcar rides every 20 minutes
A docent led tour will commence at 1:15pm
Pack a lunch or visit the museum snack bar and café. There is a 1.5 acre shaded picnic area.
It’s finally here Pinewood Derby Season! Hope all the cars are coming along and will be ready for testing/tune-up this Wednesday. We will have a track for testing and scales to check weights at the Pack Meeting.
Waaaaaay back at the January Pack meeting we gave out blue water bottles. We would like scouts to bring these water bottles to the Pack meeting for their drinks instead of doing the bag drinks. The water bottles can be filled at home with whatever drink the scout and family so choose. At the Pack meetings water will be available for refilling water bottles. The dens assigned to bring drinks will provide several gallons of water for this purpose.
We are getting closer to the big event! This is a reminder to please review the attached manual with your scout explaining the activities and how to prepare. PLEASE FILL OUT THE RELEASE FORM AND MEDICAL FORM ON PAGE 17 AND BRING TO THE NEXT PACK MEETING.
At next week’s pack meeting, I will also post a sign up sheet and ask for parent volunteers for Watch Duty the night we are on the submarine. We will need two parents per one hour shift beginning at 12 am through 7 am. That’s right, 12 am to 7 am! This is a requirement of our stay and to ensure that someone is awake to attend to any bumps and sounds that go on in the night…so please buddy up!
Any questions, let me know. See you at the pack meeting.
After conducting the poll and realizing that there were no good alternatives, and after hearing that Davis Little League will not be having Picture Day on that Saturday after all, we have decided to keep the Pinewood Derby at the originally scheduled date and time. I know schedule changes are annoying and can be difficult to deal with. Please accept our apologies, and we look forward to seeing you at the Pinewood Derby.
Due to some unforeseen scheduling conflicts, it is necessary for us to reschedule the Pinewood Derby. Your committee is very sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause you. We do everything possible to accommodate everyone’s schedules and try to accommodate as many boys as possible at our events. Moving forward, we have a few options for the same weekend that we had been planning. We can meet on Friday night, Sunday morning, or Sunday night. Food will be available for purchase at the derby, and the menu depends on the timing (breakfast/lunch vs. dinner). Please vote below and indicate the times that you can attend. Check all of the times that you can attend, and we will pick the time that works for the most people. If you cannot attend any of these times, please click only the option indicating such. Thank you for your understanding.
This Saturday morning, March 5th, 2011, is the pickup for Scouting for Food. Each den is assigned to the same area that they had for the flyer drop-off. Pickup typically takes less time than the drop-off. Dens will be meeting at the following times and locations:
