January Pack Meeting

posted Jan 13, 2015, 12:56 PM by Craig Ficik

The January pack meeting will host a few changes.   First this will be a special meeting as the Webelos II scouts have elected a Senior Denner for the pack and he will be taking my place as Cubmaster for the meeting.   I would like to congratulate Ben Rodes our first Senior Denner.

To my knowledge this has not been done in Cub Scouts before and personally I think this will be a great activity for the up-coming scouts to work towards when they become Webelos II.    Ben, we are all here to support you and look forward to a great pack meeting.

As some of you may know, Boy Scouts is boy lead with adults acting in a more supervisory role.  In order to give our Webelos II a “taste” of what is in store for them it is my wish to give these our senior Cub Scouts the opportunity to experience a portion of what they have in store for them in their future as Boy Scouts.   

Second, we are changing the format of the pack meeting for 2015.   One of our goals is get the pack meetings down to an hour.   We will be starting our pack meetings at 6:30pm starting in January with an expected close time of 7:30pm.    Not all pack meetings will have a pack activity like we have done for most of 2014, some will and some won’t.   Our new format still has skits and songs for the boys to participate in as well as a new segment called “Den Spotlight.”   This segment will feature one den a month and they will be telling the pack a few things about themselves.   This should be a good segment for all to learn more about the scouts and to give each some time practicing public speaking.   

As a note, if your den is scheduled for Gathering activity and setup you will need to be at the pack meeting place by 6:15pm for a prompt start at 6:30.    This month Den 1, Webelos I, has the gathering activity and setup.




The pack calendar has been updated to reflect the changes.
