Re: P168 - 2016 Metro Orlando Family Fest, 4/30

Good Evening, Pack 168 Families!

We would love to see more families come out the Fest and volunteer at our Pack booth.  We prefer two Scouts per hour.  Cubmaster Mark and Scout Justin will be there to set-up and cover open hours.  We would, though, really like it if someone would take the 10:00 hour.  The link is still active, and you can see the needs below.

The closest free parking lot to the park is next to the train station at W Morse and W Park Ave. If you cannot make your shift or have decided that you can make it, please CALL Mark at 321 695 5061.  During these busy times, email is not reliable.

Good Day to All P168 Families!

As promised, we are providing more information on the 2016 Family Fest.  For those that were in the Pack at least two years back, this is the replacement for the Central FL Scout Show that was held previously at the UCF Football Stadium.  Our Pack's booth will be "Wrist Rockets."  This is the same as that station at Cub-O Ree last Fall with the slingshots and pie tins. 

We are requesting that Parents and Scouts run the booth on Saturday 4/30. Location is Central Park, W Morse Blvd, Winter Park, FL 32789.  Our booth is "Trustworthy 1" and is located closest to N Park Ave and Garfield Ave.  Please see detailed map attached with blue clouding our booth.  Times are detailed in the sign up sheet at the following link:

Please fill in one or more a green cells (each cell is for a 1-hour shift). Parent must stay with Scout during shift.  Tasks during the work session will include running rounds of wrist rockets. Parents will explain the rules, and Scouts will assist with passing out/collecting/cleaning up wrist rockets and pellets, and handing our prizes.  Scouts are required to wear either the Field or Activity Uniform.  It is requested that Parents wear our Pack t-shirt if they have one.  We will have a water cooler with cups for volunteers during their shift, but we recommend that you bring your own water bottle for hydration throughout the day.

The Family Fest is truly a family event, so please bring out the entire family to enjoy all other booths and activities that will available all day from other Packs, Troops, Crews, and Posts! I have forwarded general information from our District as well.

Please email me with any questions - thank you!  Stacy

Re: P168 - Campership Application & Registration Form

Good Day, Parents!

 Angela Matusick has graciously offered to take completed applications (with registration form, money, and required justification letter) to the Central Florida Scout Office on Thursday, 4/28.  If you would like to take advantage of this, please bring all required items to the 4/27 Den Meeting, seek out Cubmasters Mark or Brently for signature, and give all items to Angela. Please note that only completed packets will be accepted and only on 4/27.

Otherwise, forms are due by May 1st mailed to the Scout office.  You will still need to bring the application for signature to the 4/27 meeting as this will be the last meeting before the forms are due.  

Thank you!  Stacy

P168 - Scout Account Update / October 2015 Popcorn ShowNSell

Good Day!

We are busy working to update all Scout Accounts so that 1) information is available quickly after Camp Card Sales and ShowNSellls have finished, and 2) we can transfer funds to Troops for our Scouts that crossed over in February.  I am requesting that you review the list below pertaining to the October 2015 Popcorn ShowNSell.  Please reply confirming that your Scout worked these hours and/or notify me of any Scouts and their hours missing from the list.  

If you are unsure what a Scout Account is, here is a recap: Scouts accumulate money when they sell popcorn, camp cards, or other Scout sponsored fundraisers. They also earn money when they work ShowNSells. Certain percentages are assigned for each fundraiser. You may use funds in your Scout's account for Scout for purchases like Scout day or summer camp, Scout uniforms, etc.  Reimbursement from available balance requires a receipt documenting the purchase.  We will publish balances after the Camp Card fundraiser is complete.  

Please reply by this Sunday Evening to the Popcorn ShowNSell documentation request.  Thanks so much! Stacy
