Bring a Friend - Share the Fun!
All friends and family are welcome to our next pack meeting on Thursday. This one's going to be fun for everyone. Scouts and thier friends will receive a boat building kit that they'll assemble and decorate. Then they'll use a straw to provide "wind" power, racing them down a 10 foot length of water-filled gutter.

The races will be run 'for fun', and no rankings or prizes will be awarded - simply an opportunity to get together as a group, build boats, and give them try. Just for the fun of it!

It's Easy

This is a low commitment craft and fun activity for the boys. Scouts are encouraged to bring a friend who may be interested in Cub Scouts.

Families who are interested in scouting are welcome too!


To get to the park from Hwy 61, go east on 140th Street/ County Road 8 and continue approximately 1.5 miles. The Hanifl Fields Athletic Park is on your left just beyond the Hugo Public Works building.

This activity is a great opportunity for scouts to display any new belt loops, awards, or patches they've received since we met last.

Please have your son wear his Class A uniform. That includesthe blue shirt with neckerchief and slide for Tigers, Wolves, Bear and Webelos. Incoming new Lion Cubs can wear their Lion Cub t-shirts.
