Cub Scouts Cutting A Radio Spot For Spirit 95

This morning some of  our Scouts got to take a tour of the Spirit 95 radio station.  A big THANK YOU to Jim Webster for being our tour guide today, the boys and parents had a blast!  We got to see behind the scenes of the radio station and even got to send out a test of the Emergency Broadcast System the station uses during bad weather events to warn the public of weather conditions.  So anyone listening today around 10:30am to Spirit 95 can blame the Cub Scouts for breaking in on their regularly scheduled programming with an Emergency Test.  🙂

In addition to the great tour, the boys actually got to cut a radio commercial that will air on Spirit 95’s morning programming!  We will be getting a copy for the boys parents but tune in Monday morning to hear their commercial play live on Spirit 95.  Below are some pictures of the “DJ’s” in action.

Pinewood Derby 2013

Wow what a great turnout and fun day of racing for the Cub Scouts of Pack 121!  Thank you to everyone for showing up and making it a rocking good time.  Special thank you to the following who helped make today such a great memory:

  • Mark and Jay for the great job in repairing the track before and during the race.  Nothing could have been done without them!
  • Heather and the Concession team who made sure everyone got fed and drinks flowing!
  • Edd and Laura who stayed late on Friday setting up and were still cleaning up long after the rest of us had gone home tonight!
  • Tony and Charles who handled the duties of managing and recording the results of the races!
  • Tony a second time for being our inspection and weigh in official.
  • Bill who served as our Pit Boss and watchdog!
  • Mike Boggs and Drew Webster for being our Race Starting Officials.
  • Drew Webster and Michaela Threlkeld for taking care of pre-registrations on Friday night.
  • Jesse Bloom, James Roach, Will Mask, Tyler Bass and Jason Blessing for being finish line officials.
  • Yvonne Jones, Ginger Manning, and Eric Russell for being our design judges.

I know I am probably forgetting someone, if so it wasn’t intentional let me know and I will get it fixed.

A special congratulations to our race winners:

  1. Sam Bass – 1st place, grand champion
  2. Chase Smith – 2nd place
  3. Ian Williamson – 3rd place

The boys made some super fast cars this year!  And what a great collection of designs.  I was particularly impressed by the sportsmanship and class of ALL of our Cub Scouts.  They are all winners in my book!

Shoe Box Drive

If you would like to help the Kid’s Choice Nutrition & Physical Activity Program, please bring empty shoe boxes to the November Pack Meeting or the next Den Meetings.  We will be collecting the shoe boxes over the next couple of weeks so please help!  They need approximately 60 empty shoe boxes (no smelly shoes needing disposed of please.  🙂 ) so anything we can help with will be greatly appreciated!  Link below for the flyer (Wanted Posted) if you want to print and handout.

This is for the Kid’s Choice Nutrition & Physical Activity Program, at Stinesville Elementary and Edgewood Primary (latch key K-2). The boxes will be used for each student to construct a Daily Fruit & Vegetable counter. We’ll use cord/twine to attach beads with. Kids can move one bead per day for each fruit/vegetable serving.

August: Back To Scouting

August is not only back to school, but it’s also back to scouting.  Our Summer Program has been a success and we can look forward to a great scouting year.  Before we get going full steam ahead, we still have some summer business to take care of.  We are well on our way to earning the National Summertime Pack Award and we have several boys who are closing in on earning their individual summertime awards.  Our final Summer Event is Saturday August 25 .  We had planned to have a joint event with the Boy Scouts at St. Paul UMC, but the Troop is not going to be available to participate.  Also, there are other events going on at the Church including Soccer, so a Change of Venue will be coming our way so.   The details are still being planned out, but all of our boys and our leaders should plan to attend and this is a Class A event.

Regular Den meetings begin Monday August 27th.  We will have a new format for Den meetings, so things should flow a little better and be a little less hectic.  At least that is the plan.  The Bear Den and our Tigers are still needing leaders.  If your boys are going to be Tigers this year, we need our leadership team to come together.  Several parents have indicated they are interested in leading the Tiger Den, but we have yet to get Leader applications completed.  We need this ASAP so if you can check in with Cub Master Aaron at the August event (or sooner via email) that will be much appreciated.

Also, the Webelos 1 den is looking for a Den Leader and an Assistant Den leader.  Jason isn’t going to be able to lead the Webelos Den this year, so we have to get someone to step up and fill in as Leader as well as an Assistant.  We have had a couple of potential leaders talking about helping but like the Tigers we don’t have an Application completed or concrete commitment.  We need this as soon as we can, so we can start planning our Den meetings.

Hardin Ridge Campout July 20-22 2012

Wow! What a great weekend we had.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better bunch of Cub Scouts and Families.  Thank you to everyone for making our July Camp-out a great one.  I would like to give special thanks to the leaders who camped those who came to help lead Saturday activities.  THANK YOU!!

One person I forgot to mention at our Campfire Saturday was our Boy Scout helper,  Drew Webster.  Drew wasn’t able to stay Saturday for the Campfire, so I neglected to recognize him for all of his help with activities on Saturday.  Drew helped with our hike and our fishing as well as making rounds to check on the camping families Friday Night.  When you see him next, thank him for helping us out and giving back to Pack 121.

Karst Farm Park

What a great time we had at Karst Farm Park this past weekend!  Thank you leaders, families, and scouts for attending, helping and enjoying the activities.

Saturday was the first of 3 summer time events the Pack will be conducting.  By planning and delivering the 3 events the Pack can qualify for the National Summertime Pack Award and for scouts attending all three events they will qualify for the individual award.  Also, for each den who  has at least 50% attendance at all three events there is also a Den award.

We had a great turn out for June, July is our Camping weekend, and in August we are planning on having a joint Open House activity with the BSA Troop from the Church. Details on the July and August Events will be coming soon! The weather looks to be hot and dry for a while, so plan accordingly on all outdoor activities.

If you would like to receive our Pack Newsletter and are not currently receiving it (usually goes out second week of the month, following the Committee Meeting), you can sign up on this site via the Newsletter tab above.

See everyone soon!
