Pinewood Derby Pack Meeting Monday, January 8th, 6:30 at WUMC in the sanctuary

Happy New Year ARROWS!!

We start back for our last few weeks as Cub Scouts with our annual Pinewood Derby Pack Meeting coming up tomorrow, Monday, January 8th.  There's always a few surprises and you will be able to get the rules, important dates, and most importantly your CAR!!  Looking forward to seeing everyone at 6:30 at WUMC – this will be our meeting for the week. Next week – make plans for Scouts (and Parents) to visit the Troop of your choice and be sure to ask about upcoming camping opportunities.

Please bring your completed God in Action achievement for me to check off if you have not already done so!!  

Don't forget Pack 359 Build Day – when you can bring your car – or the block of wood that is going to become your car – to the fellowship hall at WUMC and have use of all the tools you will need – band saws, drill press to reposition your axels (can make the car faster), belt sanders, and Scout volunteers to help parents and Scouts use all this equipment correctly.  A parent will have to come in with the Scout per BSA policy.


This year's Spring Break Camp will be at Dinosaur Valley State Park

Due to site reservation restrictions, we have 8 sites plus 1 group site at Dinosaur Valley State Park, and 7 overflow sites available at Cleburne State Park approx. 15 miles away. Those camping at Cleburne State Park will get to spend a day at Dinosaur Valley exploring all that park has to offer. Reservations for Dinosaur Valley are first come first served – once those sites are filled, we will assign families to Cleburne State Park.

We will leave on Saturday, March 9th and return on Monday, March 11th
