The 2016 Cub Mobile Race is set for Sunday, November 6th. Races will begin promptly at 11:00 am at Jackson Elementary. Scouts are not required to race if it’s too intimidating but, I’ve never seen a scout without a smile at the finish line! Every scout will have an opportunity to race their Den’s Cub Mobile three times. If your Den does not have a Cub Mobile, your leader can contact me as we have some donors from previous years. All racers must wear a helmet (bicycle style is fine) and closed-toe shoes while racing. The Cub Mobile Race is a fun event for scouts and families without official results or standings. Click here for the official rules. As always, food will be available for cash purchases during the event.
If you will not be able to attend, please let your Den Leader know before the event.
Many hands make light work… If you are able to arrive early or stay after the event to help setup/disassemble the starting ramp, please let me know. We also need a couple volunteers to help with food prep/sales.
To assist parents and leaders in tracking rank advancements, coordinating events and providing communications, Pack 700 has subscribed to a powerful online tool, Scoutbook. To get started with Scoutbook, just visit our Scoutbook Help page.
Greetings Scouts and Parents,
It’s that time of year when we submit to the BSA our charter fees. This fees for 2017 are $85 per scout, with $24 going to the BSA District, $12 going toward your subscription to Boys Life, and $49 going toward Pack 700. We collect this fee in October and submit them along with paperwork about our Pack to the BSA. This is often confusing to new scouts who joined in September and paid a pro-rated portion of the 2016 fees.
The portion that goes toward our Pack helps offset costs for new dens, scout advancements/awards, facility rentals, and our many fun events like Pinewood Derby, Cubmobile Race, and Family Camp. As a Pack, we have to submit our recharter fees by December, but we would like to get an earlier start this year with the hope of reducing the impact it has on your holidays. Please bring a check, payable to Pack 700, to the Pack meeting on October 19th.
If you have any questions, feel free contact us at Pack700mh @ gmail.com.
Our first pack meeting of the season will happen this Wednesday at the Morgan Hill Community Center with the theme of “To the rescue!”
Our guest speaker will be Randy Hooker, who will hold a 15min talk about ambulances and the work they do as first responders. Sounds very interesting. After the talk, dens will have an opportunity to get a demo on the ambulance and the tools used to save lives.
Scouts will also have the opportunity to build a simple 1st aid kit.
New scouts are encouraged to participate in this pack meeting since it will be great opportunity for them to meet and work with their new den and den leaders.
Thinking of joining the fun at Pack 700? Come to our pack meeting and we can help you with signing up.
Wednesday Sept 21 at 6:30pm.
Morgan Hill Community Center
