Shooting Awards and Advancement picnic

Posted on May 18 2017 - 12:57pm

I hope you all are looking forward to Sunday!  The kids did an amazing job this year and its time to give them the awards they deserve.  Couple items...

1.  This is a potluck event.  We will rely on everyone to bring food.  Please review the sign-up genius form.  http://www.perfectpotluck.com/meals.php?t=MKLG0626&welcome=1  A couple more slots were added for main dishes.  Please plan to bring something to share.  I would hate for the kids (or parents) to go hungry!  

2.  If you are signed up for the shooting awards, there are several requirements that should be reviewed with your child prior to the event.  If you were at last months Pack Meeting, I provided print outs, please be sure to review.  If you were unable to attend, you can find these documents here...https://woodbury513.mypack.us/taxonomy/term/1177.  Its fairly basic information that I don't want to have to spend a lot of time reviewing while on the range.  Please review the following docs:

  • Shooting Award Requirements: high level documentation on requirements to receive the awards.  Only need to review what is listed in the documents below.  We will cover the rest on Sunday.
  • Study Guides for both Archery and BB Gun:  These are the items that should be reviewed for Archery and BB Gun requirements.  
  • 5 Facts for both Archery and BB Gun:  The kids are required to know 5 facts about each a Bow and BB Gun.  There are a bunch of facts in these two docs
  • Slingshot Commands:  Very simple list of sling shot commands.

Finally, We will desperatly need parents involment.  We will be doing a lot of work in a short amount of time.  We need help moving the kids along and shooting safely.  Please plan to help! :)  Also, Younger kids will need their parents in the range helping shoot.   

Camp Location address is in the calendar event.

JTE aka Journey to Excellence goal met

Posted on May 15 2017 - 12:44am

Mr. Reed, Mr. Braun and Mr. Peters met last week with our Unit Commissioner ( UC ) to do a unit reflection.
This reflection was the difference between our unit earning gold or platinum in 2016. We're ahead of the game this year with other goals to reach recruitment, recharter and something else that I'm sure is important but it escapes me at this time.
The takeaway from the reflection was our parents are reporting their scouts are enjoying the program, Fall Pack Family Camp, Base Camp climbing event, the Sledding Event, Pinewood Derby and the celebration of Scouting's birthday - the Blue & Gold Banquet. While our unit did not have any cub scouts transferring into a boy scout troop this year, next year we're poised to crossover scouts that started as Lions the first year the Lion program was a program. 
Share your favorite scouting event in comment or better yet with words and photos. If you're unfamiliar ask Jason VanBerkom for the how to .

Need volunteers to help at the shooting event

All, We are looking for volunteers who can help during the shooting sports event.  If interested, please email Jason.vanberkom@gmail.com.  I am having shoulder surgery and could really use the help since I'll be in a sling.  Dan Chapmann is running the Archery and I will be running the BB Gun.  All the help we can get directing the kids will be appreciated.
