Happy December, Pack Parents.  We have some news to share as we enter into the Winter months.  Some Pack Calendar items have shifted due to further venue challenges, so please make note.  If you ever have a question about upcoming Pack events, you can always go the Pack’s website.

Fundraising Update – The only prizes we are still waiting for are the Gift Cards and Nerf Guns.  Once they come in, we will get all of the tickets and prizes out as quickly as we can via the Dens.

December Pack Meeting – to keep this email shorter, we are sending a separate email with the final logistics for Sunday’s outing only to families who are signed up.  If you have a question, please let us know.

Just a reminder that Polar Cubs sign ups are due on December 11th!  We will be attending Polar Cubs at Phillipo Scout Reservation (near Cannon Falls, MN) on February 25, 2012.  The cost is $30 per scout, and $10 per adult.  A current list of families that are signed up to attend can be found at the bottom of this email.

Pinewood Derby Cars have been distributed to the Den Leaders.  They will either be handed out at Sunday’s outing or at your December Den’s Meetings.  More Pack Pinewood news below.

At our Monthly Pack Committee Meeting (Full Minutes are available at we re-organized out Winter Pack schedule. Highlights are below:

  • The January Pack Gathering will be a sledding party on Saturday,  January 21st beginning at 1:30 at Lakewood Hills Park in White Bear Lake.  Scouts and their families are welcome to bring any and all sledding equipment they have and a cup for Hot Cocoa which will be provided by the Pack. 
  • Webelos Crossover will also take place on a weekday evening sometime in January.  All of the Webelo2 Scouts will have completed their Arrow of Light by then and we don’t want to hold them back from continuing their Journey in Scouting.  More info to come, but please plan to join us for the 1-hour Crossover Ceremony and Cake to celebrate their accomplishments and highlight what each Cub Scout is working towards.
  • The Pack Pinewood Derby has shifted to February 4th at the Hugo Legion.  Check-in will be staggered by Rank with Webelos starting at 10am, Bears at 10:30, Wolves at 11am, Tigers at 11:30 and Lions at Noon.  We will be using the Council’s Derby Rules which can be found here. There will be a separate email with more details coming soon.  We still need a few parents to help with the details and making sure the event runs smoothly.  Please make plans to attend our planning meeting on January 9th at 7pm at the Legion in Hugo.
  • Pack Re-chartering will also be done at the Pack Pinewood Derby.  This is when you make your commitment to Scouting for next year, so there will be dues to be paid by check or using your Scout Account that day.
  • The Pack Blue and Gold Dinner also needed to shift to Saturday, March 3rd and will be held at the Hugo Legion.  Shawn Pade has a handful of Sub-Committee members and will be meeting to do more planning soon.  We are planning to at least cater the main course, so we are NOT seeking cooks this year.  If you are interested in helping plan the Cub Scout birthday party, please let us know.
  • The next Pack Committee Meeting is January 23rd, 7pm at Hugo City Hall.  Pease join us if you are able.  We have found some new Parent Leadership volunteers recently, but we still have 1-2 ongoing positions as well as some 1-time a year type jobs we would like to have someone take charge of, like recruiting.  Please inquire about these possibilities with any Pack leader and we will get you more info. Together Everyone Achieves More!

Thanks everyone.  Have a safe and happy holiday season.
