Thank you.

Pack Celebration on Wednesday, May 27

Just a reminder of our last pack get-together tomorrow, Wednesday, May 27.


Our pack leaders are planning a fun-filled evening of dinner, activities and, of course, awards.  The fun begins at 6 p.m. at Wadeview Park at the pavilion closest to Osceola.  The pack will be providing hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks and we are asking our dens to coordinate amongst themselves and help out with bringing the following:


Tigers - Fruits and vegetables (ex., fruit salad, green salad, spinach salad, etc.)

Wolves - Desserts

Bears - Side dishes (ex., beans, pasta, potato salad, chips/dip, etc.)

Webelos - Condiments (ex., ketchup, mustard, relish, mayo, cheese, tomatoes/lettuce)


Please ensure your scout wears his full uniform with a t-shirt underneath.


Also, since seating is limited at the pavilion, please bring chairs.


Finally, please stay tuned to your email and phone that day if we have inclement weather.  We will use those avenues to communicate any location changes.


We look forward to seeing everyone there!

May reminders for Pack 168

All:  It's our last month of get-togethers for this school year!  Please see below for information on upcoming Pack 168 activities this month and over the summer:

MAY CORE VALUE
Health and Fitness: Being personally committed to keeping our minds and bodies clean and fit.  Cub Scouts will learn that it is important and easy to eat a healthy diet and how a fitness program can be part of their daily routine. 

SUMMARY
  • Attend this week's Pack meeting with your Space Derby rocket 
  • Sign-up for our last camping trip of this school year (see details below)
UPCOMING MEETINGS (Den and Pack meetings:  6:30 p.m., Blankner unless otherwise noted by your Den Leader)
  • Wednesday, May 6 - Pack meeting with Space Derby. This year's organizer, Eligio Colon, has offered up a tour of the Air Traffic Control Tower for the den with the highest percentage of participation.  Be sure to get there on time to allow plenty of time to run the races.  Scouts will need to shape and paint their rockets ahead of time.  It's not quite as labor intensive as the Pinewood Derby cars and there are some helpful videos on YouTube if you do a search on Space Derby.
  • Wednesday, May 13 - Den meetings
  • Saturday, May 23 - Boy Scout Sleepover at Jackie Robinson Ballpark with the Daytona Tortugas baseball game, Sign-up:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1anigWkgbAW77htTqU_hpyBz5QDV49cXoAxSQOq5UHYk/viewform?usp=send_form 
  • Wednesday, May 27 - End-of-Year Picnic, Wadeview Park, 6-8 p.m., more details (including sign-up sheet) will be forthcoming
SUMMER SAVE THE DATES
The Pack will be hosting several summertime events to keep everyone in touch.  Following are a few tentative dates and activities:
  • Saturday, June 13, Tour of Doctor Phillips Performing Arts Center, Time TBD
  • Saturday, July 18, Raingutter Regatta, 9:30 am to 12:00 pm, Wadeview Park
  • August 9, Tampa Bay Rays Home Game, 1:10pm
