At the Pack meeting we will have our Pack sales prizes on display so the Scouts can see what they can win at the September pack meeting raffle. After the popcorn totals are in (by October 16), there will be an additional prize drawing at the November Pack meeting. Also, for every $450 in popcorn sold, a Scout receives a free trip to Space Camp in the spring. Once a Scout reaches $750 in total Popcorn Sales they are eligible to receive the Sitting Hammock Pod that is this year’s $750 club prize from the district. There are additional prizes available for each Scout that are on the popcorn sales sheet based on total sales and separate prizes awarded based on Online sales.

WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!

Hello Pack 471!

We are glad to be back at school and officially starting our new year in cub scouting. We hope that everyone has had a great summer and we are looking forward to having more fun this year.

We will hold our first pack meeting on Tuesday, August 21st at 6:45pm at the Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church in the gym. This is a Class A meeting, so please come in your blue or tan (Webelos) uniform. This is also our rally night, so we will have a great night of games, while we sign up new scouts for this year.

Remember to tell all of your friends, and if you bring a friend to rally night who signs up, you get a Recruiter patch. We will ask that all scouts wear their class B red shirts to school that day as a reminder, and we will send out another reminder as we approach that date.

We hope to have a HUGE turnout for that night, and if anyone knows of anyone who wants to join now or who wants further information, you can have them send an email to: pack471leader@gmail.com

We hope to see you there!

ROCKET LAUNCH on May 14th

**REPOST FROM SCOUTBOOK**

A friendly reminder that Pack 471 will host the annual Crossover Ceremony and Rocket Launch on Saturday, May 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Pope High School. IF YOU HAVE A LAUNCHER, PLEASE LET MEREDITH KNOW. 
We will using the Pope High School practice field (behind the Gymnasium). First, we will have the crossover ceremony where we will celebrate our scouts crossing into their new ranks. After that, we will launch our rockets!

Time to start building a new rocket or dusting off an old one. We strongly suggest that you only use A or B size rocket engines so we don’t lose our rockets if they go too high. If you have never built rockets in the past, there are several types that are very easy first time rocket kits, which include everything but the engine itself. Hobby Town and Hobby Lobby both have a great selection of rockets and engines. Remember to add wadding, but we have extra if you forget!

Things to bring:

Scout’s rocket
Engines (bring multiple if you want to launch your rocket more than once)
Class A uniform
Water bottle
Sunscreen

We hope that you can make it and celebrate this year of adventure that we’ve had!

Upcoming events for Pack 471:

May 28 – Memorial Day Flag Placement 9am @ Marietta Cemetary
