Our October Pack Meeting was a blast! We started the meeting by singing Happy Birthday to Jayce K. After that, we recognized our new Tiger scouts and some new scouts at other ranks with their Bobcat awards. There were some other awards too, with several boys receiving “Recruiter” awards for bringing new boys into the Pack. Also, AJ R. was awarded his 50-mile Hiking Stick – way to go, AJ!! AJ got his name put on the Banner of Achievement, too.
Jennifer Rodrique gave us an update on our Popcorn sales – we’re doing great! It’ll come down to the finish line on which dens will get the “Pizza and Bowling Parties”, and which den will get to go to Worcester Rockclimbing for a 2-hour den event too! Cubmaster Paquin was pleased to announce that the boys did a fantastic job with submitting their completed sheets to the Council Office, and that we won a very cool Pack-only Marksman Event at Treasure Valley! The date on this is still being worked out, but the boys will be able to shoot BB-guns and practice archery all to themselves!
We had some prize drawings for some gift cards, and after that we all got ready for the “Pie in the Face event”. This was a new idea this year, and turned out to be a ton of fun! Ryan B. won the chance to shove a pie into his Den Leader’s face, Jason C. “pied” our Popcorn Queen Jennifer Rodrique, and 7 boys in total all sold 50 items to put a pie into Cubmaster Paquin’s face! It was messy, but a LOT of fun!
Jennifer Thomas was kind enough to bring her dogs in for a bit of entertainment too. We didn’t have enough time for a complete presentation on dog-sledding, but will plan to do that later in the year.
Finally, a number of boys went to the Community Barn to watch “Rio”, and then had a sleep-over indoors and outdoors. All told, it was a really good time!
Here are pictures from the night:
