Pack Meeting Archives - Cub Pack 110

Back by popular demand! Please join us on Friday, October 22nd, at 5:15 pm for the Pack 110 meeting and Great Pumpkin Carve! (Rain Date: Sunday, October 24th at 5:00 pm)

After the opening ceremonies the Scouts and their families will be given 30 minutes to carve and decorate your pumpkin.  Once all of the pumpkins are decorated, we will light them up and display them on the amphitheater stage to give the Scouts a chance to see the creations that their friends made.  It should be a truly special event.

We will be hosting this meeting at East Bradford Park in the field by the amphitheater. Each family should bring a picnic blanket to spread out on the field to ensure sufficient social distance. Please dress warmly and remember your mask!  

 

Necessary Supplies for this meeting

Pumpkin Carving KitPlease Remember to bring a hollowed out pumpkin ready to decorate and the necessary tools for your carving / decorating.

We strongly recommend picking up a couple of Pumpkin Carving Kits similar to the one pictured here. These actually work very nicely and they are much safer than kitchen knives.  They can be purchased for a couple of dollars at most stores that carry Halloween supplies.  The tools do break relatively easy though, so you may want to bring spare tools.

Please remember to bring:

  1. Hollowed out pumpkin
  2. Carving tools
  3. Picnic blanket
  4. Warm clothes and mask
  5. Filled reusable water bottle
  6. Flashlight

 

COVID-19 Risk Reduction Plan

  • All attendees should perform a self health assessment prior to the event to ensure that they are free from signs of COVID-19 including verifying temperatures are below 100.4 degrees.  If you are unsure, you should not attend.
  • ALL ATTENDEES ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO WEAR A CLOTH FACE MASK AT ALL TIMES. BOTH PARENTS AND SCOUTS.
  • This is an entire pack event.  Please bring a picnic blanket as your families “home base” to ensure proper social distancing.  There is lots of field. Spread Out. 🙂
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided by the pack, although we recommend that each scout comes with their own to minimize sharing.

WE ARE ON FOR TONIGHT DESPITE THE WET GROUND.  WEAR OLD SHOES, MAYBE BRING A RAIN COAT OR UMBRELLA.

 

This is our big Opening Night for our 2021-22 Scouting year so there will be lots of fun activities for new and existing Pack 110 Scouts! We are counting on a BIG turnout from our existing Scouts to help make a BIG impression on our new and potential Scouts.  This first meeting will really set the tone for this year and will focus on Family Fun!

We will be collecting dues for existing Scouts and applications for new Scouts .  All new Scouts that register at the opening meeting will receive custom Pack 110 t-shirt.  Additional t-shirts for existing Scouts (and parents) can be purchased for $5 per shirt.

Bring a Friend!  Any existing Scouts that bring a friend that is interested in joining the pack will receive a special prize. Existing Scouts should introduce their guest to the cubmaster in order to receive their prize.

The Den Leaders and Pack Committee are excited about the upcoming year.

Family Scouting

Pack 110 is proud to be participating in the Family Scouting program. This means that we can open up our awesome Scouting program to boys and girls. We are looking forward to sharing our program with a larger audience this year!

Thank you to all our volunteers!  If you are interested at all in helping out Pack 110, please do not hesitate to contact any of the Pack Leadership.  We can always use more hands to ensure that we have a solid program in place for the Scouts.

We have a lot of fun and exciting things planned.  There will be camping trips, a hayride, and social activities for our families.  We will also have our old favorites such as the Pinewood Derby and Rocket Launch!!   If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at cubpack110.com and use the contact page.

We are looking forward to working with all of you to make this a great year for our Scouts and our community!

The 2021 Pinewood Derby will be April 10th, 2021 so it’s time start planning those cars.  Pinewood Derby Kits are available now.  Email cubmaster@nullcubpack110.com to get yours.

Here are a few tips & reminders:

Please review the official rules as this will make the check-in which starts at 2:00 and closes at 2:45 go much smoother – Pinewood-Derby-Rules. Scout cars must be made with the materials contained in the Pinewood Derby kits and weigh no more than 5oz. fully constructed.

In addition to awards for the fastest cars, awards will be given for the following other categories:

Cubs Choice, Judges Choice, Most Original, Best Cub-Scout Theme, Most Aerodynamic, Most Patriotic

Siblings and adults are welcomed and encouraged to build their own Pinewood Derby Cars for a special Open Races. Adult and sibling cars must fit the track dimensions as stated in the rules, but may exceed the weight limit up to 10oz. The car must be made from the official pinewood derby kit block and have 3/8″ clearance so that it will run down the track, almost anything else goes.

More information can be found on the PWD-flyer and if you are looking for inspiration, check out Boy’s Life’s Amazing Pinewood Derby Car Designs of 2019.

The 2018 Pack 110 Iditarod will be on Friday, December 13th at 7:00PM in the Hillsdale gymnasium.

In case you are new to the pack or need a refresher, here is what your Team (Den) must bring to the Iditarod:

  • A (tastefully) decorated sled with a non-scratch, slick bottom (carpet remnants or old blankets work well)
  • The sled must be able to carry at least 1 child (think laundry basket)
  • The sled must have some sort of rigging for the huskies (scouts and possibly adults) to pull the sled (strong rope securely attached to sled)
  • At least 2 safety helmets (bike, ski, etc.) per Team.

We are encouraging all “Mushers” to get creative and dress the part for the Iditarod.  Click on this link if you need any inspiration http://www.iditarod.com/learn/
