Pinewood Derby Volunteers: You Can Do It ...

Posted on Jan 17 2018 - 4:46pm

From Josh Flannigan:  "The pinewood derby is a little less than a month away and we are looking for volunteers for the event. Thanks to Joe Hood and Jeff Woodson for volunteering to help with track set up on Friday Feb 9th.  We still need help in the following areas: 

A Pinewood Derby Workshop This Saturday

Posted on Jan 17 2018 - 12:48pm

This Saturday and the following, the Scout Shop at the Volunteer Service Center across from Sun Trust Park is having a "drop in" (9 to 5) "Pinewood Derby Champ Camp".   Those links say "Drop in to the Scout Shop any time Saturdays in January and learn how to build a better Pinewood Derby car!  The Scout Shop staff will be available to help you and your Scout to learn the basics of woodworking tools, cut their car, check its weight and pick up the supplies you'll need to build the fastest car you possibly can."

Pinewood Derby Reminders

Posted on Jan 17 2018 - 12:45pm

From Recent Emails:  Attached are the derby rules for your use.  The biggest one everyone needs to remember is that your car should weigh as close to 5oz as possible without going over.  There will be scales at the check in table and the repair shop.  Getting cars up to weight/ trimming weight is where most of the effort in the repair shop is spent. 

Attached is a pinewood derby car template for your use. 

Reminder about Transition ... You Can Do It, We Can Help

Posted on Jan 17 2018 - 12:45pm

From Josh Flannigan in at the end of November:  "As many of you already know Steve Thompson(Pack Committee Chair) and myself (Cubmaster) along with several other highly active leaders will be crossing over to the troop in February when the Webelos 2 scouts crossover.

“Wait, Wait, don’t leave us!”  I am sorry, but it is time. we are going up and it is time for us to move out. 

We need people to come forward and say “I’ll do that”. Another option is for everyone to take a step back and leave one person standing there all by themselves as the leader.

There is the “Right Way, the “Wrong Way”, and “My Way” to run the pack. I encourage you not to do it my way.  No one should look at what I did and think that they have to do the same thing.  Identify your strengths and combine your efforts with others and the whole pack will succeed. 

All kidding aside for this transition to go smoothly, we need to identify new leaders for the remainder of this year and into next year.  To that end, I am looking at calendar dates in mid to late January to have a get together and help finalize the transition."

Posted on Jan 16 2018 - 7:15pm

When and Where You'll Go To Summer Camp in 2018! ... Summer Camp is the most fun thing you and your son can do during Cub Scout Years.  See this Cub Scout Summer Camp information.  Several 3 night options, and a five night option for current 3rd and 4th Grade Scouts.   To help see who wants to go when, complete this simple survey to note when you might go (this is not a commitment or payment, just an expression of interest).  At this point, other than Fifth Graders (who will go with the Boy Scout Troop to Boy Scout Summer Camp), we have only one response, a third grade family with interest for July 11 to 14 (Wednesday through Saturday morning) or July 8 to 11 (Sunday through Wednesday morning).
