 Hello Scout family!!! I think we've hit a new record for our Pack. The roster has grown to 119 scouts! I welcome all of you to the Pack! It's going to be quite a year and I hope each one of you has tons of fun and go on lots of adventures with us. This time of year is very busy but hang in there. Scout life will become a lot more comfortable very soon. All of us that have been around for a while are here to help all of you that are new. We will hit our groove very soon. Last week was still new for many of us and it took some time to get to our classrooms. Please remember that our meetings start at 6:30pm. Please, as you can, have your scouts in their den rooms before 6:30pm so that the leaders can have the full meeting time to work with your children.

This Monday we will have our regular Den meetings and also a new parent (or anyone with questions) meeting. This will be held in room 206/208 which is across from the AOL boys room. We will attempt to give you the best overview we can about our Pack and allow time for Q&A. Meeting starts at 6:45 so that you can get your scouts settled in their dens.

Sept 26 we will have our first real Pack meeting in the gym. Please be there and ready by 6:30pm as it's a big night! All of our new scouts and all of our Tiger Cubs are working hard on achieving their Bobcat Rank. This is the first rank that all new scouts must earn before they can earn any other rank. This means that they are working on the Scout Oath, Law, Motto and Handshake. Help you scouts this weekend get ready so that they can be part of our ceremony on Monday the 26th. During the ceremony we will also need one adult present with each scout to be part of the ceremony. It really is very special. Our Scout Shop will also be present at this meeting to help with all of your uniform needs/questions.

Here is a quick rundown of upcoming events:

Sept 24 - All returning scouts are invited to the Shoot-O-Ree. There will be BB Guns, Archery, and Sling Shot. Sign up here to attend: Cost is $5 per scout. Tigers through AOL invited.

Sept 25 - Time to unload some pumpkins!!! As many of you know, Woodland UMC has an amazing pumpkin patch every year. And it takes an army to unload all of those pumpkins off the tractor trailer and onto the field. If you are willing and able we will start unloading right after Sunday service at 11:30am. This is a great opportunity for some service hours and to just do a good deed! So come join us for service at 10:30 and stay to unload and have some fun!
