We currently need volunteers to cover the Friday Night Snacks, Saturday night dinner, Sunday morning breakfast meals.  We will also need parents to help out assisting with the meals to help set up and clean up.

The weather will be nice, but chilly at night, so remember warm clothing to wear at night along with a fleece hat and warm socks.  We will provide more details on this camping event as we get closer, but we hope you can make it.

Cub Scout Spook-A-Ree – Bert Adams BSA Camp, 3 Weekends in October

Each year, the Bert Adams BSA Campgrounds holds a family camping event entitled Spook-A-Ree.  The details can be found here: 

 
 
This is an extra camping experience in which all the family can take part of.  There are options for renting one of the covered Adventure camp tents or you can set up your own tent.  You can make your own meals or pay in advance for them in the cafeteria. 
The events run the weekends of: 
Oct 10-12
Oct 17-19
Oct 24-26
 
We normally do not register as a pack, but if you register as a family, please be aware that you must bring 2 copies of your medical forms for all members attending.  Remember to bring some extra cash as the trading post is normally opened that Saturday. 
 
It is a very fun event, and the counselors and staff do a great job making sure everyone has a great time. 
 
If you do plan on attending, please contact Robert Payne at rjlpayne@gmail.com.  If there are other Pack 471 parents going, he will let you know.  Please let him know the weekend you are attending after you register.  Thank you.

Pack 471 Yearly Planning Session – July 20th 6:00 pm

As we look forward to the start of a new school year, it is time to gather our leaders and interested parents and look ahead to the 2014-2015 scouting year and determine just what kind of year we are going to have.

The next planning session is this Sunday July 20th at Keith Kudlac’s residence (4284 Rocky Glen, in the Westchester subdivision off of Mabry Road) at 6:00 p.m.

Please join us as we review the schedule of activities we have lined up and the budget for the year. We will also be looking to fill in any gaps in our volunteer roster for the upcoming scouting year.

For the parents, If you have never been to a committee meeting this is a great meeting to visit as it is important to get everyone’s perspective on what the scouts have experienced and what their favorite activities are.

We hope to see everyone who can make it.

Keith Kudlac
Committee Chair
