Please sign up for Camp Card Sales this Saturday, April 21st at Ace Hardware

Good evening,

Quick reminder that we have no meetings of any kind this evening. Next week, Wednesday April 25th, we have a regularly scheduled Den Meeting at Blankner at 6:30 pm.

At that meeting, camp card sales are due.

And speaking of camp cards, we NEED your help this Saturday, April 21st with our last camp card show and sell taking place at Ace Hardware, 2218 S Orange Avenue from 8 am to 4 pm. We are in most need of coverage between the hours of 11 am and 2 pm. This is a huge fundraiser for our Pack and helps us keep our dues down. Please email or text  Jessica Bennett (jessica.bennett@hays.comor 407-716-9014) and let her know when you can help.

Thanks for your support! Hope to see you this weekend.

Good evening everyone,

We want to say thanks to all those who participated in Sunday's Pinewood Derby!  We appreciate your support. 

Please note that tomorrow night, April 11th, our regularly-scheduled Den Meeting has been canceled in order to accommodate a much-needed Pack Committee (Adults Only) Meeting.  

This meeting will take place at McGinty's Restaurant (5406 Hansel Ave in Edgewood) TOMORROW night (April 11th) at 7 p.m. 

The meeting will help the Pack organize our schedule and events for the rest of this school year and into 2018-2019.  We are in great need of additional parent participation in order to keep the Pack flourishing into next year.  Roles such as Popcorn Chair, Pinewood Derby Organizer, and Den Leaders are needed for next year.  And don't worry if you don't have experience; we all work together and help where needed.  Even if you can't make tomorrow night's meeting, please e-mail Ryan Stead (rtstead@hotmail.com) if you might have an interest in volunteering with us.   

There is also NO scheduled meeting for next week, Wednesday, April 18th (The Pack Committee Meeting on the calendar is the one being rescheduled to tomorrow). Our next Den Meeting will be Wednesday, April 25th. 

Please see below for the schedule for the remainder of the year and other information.  

For those interested, this weekend, April 13th through April 15th, is a Council Camping Opportunity, Lift Off to Outer Space 2018, at Camp La-No-Che.  See link for more details. 


For our Pack, we have our second and final Camp Card Show and Sell at Ace Hardware, 2218 Orange Avenue, Saturday, April 21st from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m where the boys can sell the cards directly to store patrons.  We are asking that Scouts sign up for a 2 hour shift with one adult.  Please get with Jessica Bennett to sign up or e-mail her at jessica.bennett@hays.com.

Good evening,

Please note that tomorrow night will be a regular Den Meeting NOT a Pack Meeting as stated on the calendar. So Scouts can just wear their tshirts rather than Class A Uniforms.

All Den Meetings will be at Blankner at 6:30 pm unless directed by your Den Leader.

Please have your Scouts bring their derby cars with them if they want to weigh them or make any modifications. 

Finally, a more detailed email will be going out, but the Pinewood Derby is fast approaching and will take place this Sunday, April 8th. 

Registration will begin at noon and cars can be tested on the track until 12:30 pm. Then the race will be held at 1 pm. The event will take place at the Kiwanis Club (same locale as Blue and Gold Dinner). 

Even if you are unsure about racing a car, please come and watch the races if your schedule allows as the event is lots of fun. 

Thanks and we hope to see you tomorrow,
Jessica

Countdown to the Pinewood Derby, this Sunday, April 8th!

Good evening, 

The Pinewood Derby is fast approaching!  Please join us for this fun event that is a Cub Scout tradition. Even if you aren't racing, you can cheer on your fellow Scouts. Please note that you can have one entry per person. Siblings and adults can have their own cars, but they will run in a different race.    
 
DETAILS:
Date: Sunday, April 8th   
Time: 1:00 – 3:00 PM (approx.)
Registration begins at 12:00 pm!  Non-timed track testing will be allowed until 12:30pm. 
 
LOCATION: 
Kiwanis Club of South Orlando
1940 Conway Gardens Road
Orlando, FL 32806
 
AWARDS:
• Ribbons will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd  place winners in each den (if there are enough participants) .
• Trophies will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd  place winners Overall (whole pack).  
• A trophy will also be awarded for overall "Best of Show," which awards the best Scout-made design/decoration as determined by a panel of adult judges. 
 
RULES:
Here is a link to the rules (same as those for last few years), which we will be using as guidelines on Sunday.  Some of these are more geared toward the district-wide race, but can help give an idea how everything runs.  
-In general, weights can be attached to the vehicle however you wish, as long as the overall vehicle meets the dimensional standards provided in the rules. 
-Judges do not examine the wheels on the track, they do however look for severely modified wheels.  
-Only the official wheels are acceptable.
-Wheels can be sanded to remove surface imperfections, but the treads must be left flat.
-No Graphite Powder can be used inside the Kiwanis Club per their request as it is difficult to clean up. 

There will be a table outside with a table cloth or other cover available for any sanding, modifications requiring tools, and use of graphite or other dry lubricant.  

 REMINDERS:
As leaders, we request that everyone remember a few things:
• Remember to keep the space between the bottom of the car and the track clear of weights as we had a couple of problems last year.  In other words, the 0.375" dimension on the rules link shown above is a minimum.  I suggest a bit more, such as 0.4375" (7/16").
• We are using the same wooden and electronic scoring track as last year.  
• We are hoping that the electronic finishing/timing system works again this year.  If it does not work, it will be adults' eyeballs!
• We are there to have fun.  The boys will be looking to us parents as examples of good sportsmanship. 
• We will run a separate adult/siblings race for those cars. Please respond if you need more information.

Thanks and hope to see you on Sunday!
