First Pack Meeting of the school year, Monday September 12, 6:30 pm

posted Aug 21, 2016, 5:05 PM by Webmaster Queen Anne Cub Scouts

Welcome to the new 2016/2017 School Year and the startup of our regular pack and den meetings.  We are planning an exciting year.  Our first Pack meeting of the year will be on Monday, September 12 at Bethany Presbyterian Church on Queen Anne Ave from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm. 

 

We’re starting the year with a BLAST.

STOMP ROCKETS!

 

Cub Scouting is a family participatory activity.  On Monday, you’ll be helping your boys build the stomp rockets.  You’ll also help your den build a launcher.  You’ll fire them off a couple/few times.  Experiment.  Talk about the science of rockets.  Rebuild them.  Fix them when they break.  You can then go home and do some more experimenting together with your son.  In addition, many of the dens will also continue stomp rocketing at an upcoming den meeting.  You’ll see who has the coolest rocket.  The fastest rocket.  The rocket that goes the highest, longest, straightest, craziest trajectory…  

If you’re intrigued, here’s a quick video on one way to build them. But, you can do your own design as well.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSS6ybomPLk       Hint:  Watch it at 2X speed and it takes only 2 minutes.  Click on the cog wheel.  

 Please feel free to bring siblings along to participate.  Pack 7072 not only Welcomes all families, we welcome the whole family.

Some notes for those of you registered or registering for summer camp:
- We will need your health forms before you can attend
- Please let us know if you need a ride or carpool
- We recommend that you bring snacks in case camp food is not to your liking
- Scouts will need to pass a swim test when they arrive; if you feel this may be intimidating, you may want to take your scout to a pool to try it out before you leave for camp
- We will try our best to provide t-shirts to campers, but need to re-order most youth sizes; we may not have the new shirt in time, so please bring the current class B shirt just in case. 

Queen Anne Days - Sat., July 9

ltginaven@msn.com


As a community outreach (no recruiting at this event) we will be helping kids build and set off stomp rockets at the Queen Anne Days festival. Our outgoing Web 2 parents have graciously offered to help run this event, but we really need current Cub Scout parents to help out with shifts throughout the day.  If you're in town, please consider helping out - it's a long day for just a few parents to run, and a great time getting to make kids happy all day! 

Rockets in the park! OPEN to non-scouts!

Where Boys Get To Be Boys

Pack 70/72 Welcomes Families of all Kinds

Scouting builds character, responsibility, self-sufficiency, ethics and leadership; all while the boys have lots of fun.  We go hiking and camping together. We go to Mariners games, ride bikes, swim and fish. We have a Pinewood Derby where we race cars that we build ourselves and we have a soapbox derby where we ride in homemade cars.  We learn about first-aid and how to read a map.

Come check us out on Monday night.  Or, contact me directly. I’m more than happy to discuss Scouting with you. (650-823-2504)   coombs_jeff@earthlink.net

Location & Accommodations
Camp Edward is 15 miles north of Monroe, WA. It takes just over an hour to get to camp from Seattle.
There are tents where families can sleep together. They generally sleep about 3, though I imagine 4 could cram in. There are also 8 person cabins, which are gender specific. So, if Charlie and John wanted to sleep with all the boys, then you could sleep in a tent or in the women's cabin. 

Pack Attendee Roster
Please let me know when you registered as I must keep a roster. Contact me if you have any questions. Lance Ginaven ltginaven@msn.com 206.851.4496

More About Camp
Located on a small lake amid thick forest, Camp Edward is the ideal spot for Cub Scouts and their leaders to experience Cub Scout camp at its best. Activities include boating and swimming, archery and BB gun ranges, crafts, nature hikes, advancements, campfires and more. Newly redesigned campsites feature new cabins, tents and central restroom facilities. The trading post offers souvenirs, snacks, drinks, supplies and Scout products.

It should be another great year at camp.  You kids will remember it forever.
