Mrs. Rodrique handed out a ton of Popcorn prizes for the boys. As she explained, our boys did a tremendous job this year, setting new Pack and Council records! All of the top sellers in the Pack were presented with movie vouchers and certificates for their accomplishments. We also had Jacob P. set a new Council record for individual scout sales too, with $4502 this year. Jacob was presented with an iPod Nano for his first place finish, and will be dropping the puck at a Sharks game in January! James A. did an awesome job too, with $3500 in sales: enough to earn him a cool “Razer Powerwing” scooter, and a seat on the bench during the Sharks game as the top seller in the Hassanamisco district! There are more prizes coming, too – there was a customs issue that prevented the boys’ prizes from Trails End being delivered on time, and these will be distributed to the Den Leaders as soon as we get them.
Four boys were awarded their 50-mile Hiking Sticks this month! I am amazed at how motivated these boys are to get out into the great outdoors! Next time you see them, please congratulate Kevin P., Keiggan O., Graham Z., and Jack F. – they’ve all done a terrific job, and put their names up on the Pack’s “Banner of Achievement!”
We also had James A. putting a sticker on the banner, too! James was awarded 10 Belt Loops in 12 months, which is really good work!
Mr. Alderton presented the results of the photography contest, too: Jack F. won the “Animal” category, James A. won the “Scout” category, AJ R. won the “Leaders” category, and Graham Z. won the “Landscape” category. There were some really good photos entered, and everyone who participated had a blast! Each of the winners received a framed copy of their photo, and a gift certificate too! See the end of this post for all the photos.
To cap the meeting off, we had “Ooch” the Yoyo guy back for another show, and everyone in the audience really enjoyed the entertainment.
The day after the meeting, a bunch of boys (and adults!) from Pack 106 participated in a Dodgeball Tournament in Worcester. The Pack entered 3 teams: in the Cub division, we had the “Grafton Strikers” competing hard; in the Webelos division, the “Grafton Grenades” did a great job; and in the adult category, the “Grafton Old Folks” made an impressive showing. The competition was incredibly fierce and intense! In the end, each of the Grafton teams ended up taking first place in their respective divisions. It was a really fun event, and I think everyone hopes that it happens again next year!
Here are the winners of the December 2011 Photography contest! All the boys who participated earned the Photography Belt Loop, too! Congratulations to the winners!
