Where did you get the screen printing equipment? That would be awesome to do.

We have den meetings every two weeks, plus one pack meeting a month, plus one committee meeting a month, and generally a pack activity once a month.

Our dens meet the first and second week of the month and pack meetings are the third week.

District roundtables are the first Tuesday of the month; pack leader / committee meetings are the first Wednesday of the month. Our city has several registered units so our pack is kicking off our own Pow-Wow roundtables to try and get area packs to plan some events together and exchange ideas.

One of our den leaders does screen printing as a hobby. I can try to get some of the details on his equipment if you'd like.

This is what we do (& most in our district), but Tiger dens typically meet only once a month (sometimes twice with a go-see-it)

Ask your committee chair to get you a copy of the Den Meeting Planner which has copies of all the lesson plans you'll ever need!

I would like to thank my kids and the other kids from scouting for an enjoyable weekend.This yrs Klondike for me was better then last yrs. Why was it better then last yrs??? Three words said to me by my son while getting in the car to come home made it better for me.The first three words he said was getting in were "That was fun!!!" Those three words made the whole weekend worth it !!!

Eggs in a bag are simply: you put your eggs in a zip lock bag preferably the double zip one.Then add whatever you want( cheese,chopped peppers,sausage,etc) shake bag to mix it up then drop in boiling water. Then presto after a short time you have an omelet with no real mess to clean up. Its fast its easy and the kids love doing it.

FWIW - I use the same method to make omelets at home, since I never mastered the trick of making them properly. Easier to clean up too.

We had our Pinewood Derby on Friday. Overall, a pretty successful event, with an Angry Birds car taking Best of Show. DS did not do so well as last year, and was pretty upset by it. I've tried impressing on him that the main goals are to have fun and learn something, but he isn't receptive at the moment.

I have told him that, if he is willing to do the work, I am more than happy to buy some pinewood kits over the next year, so we can practice making cars and trying different designs. (Obviously, the car that races next year would be made once we got our "official" kit in November, but nothing is stopping me from buying six or seven kits from the Scout shop and working on them in the meantime, if he is willing to do the work.)

We had our biannual Troop election Monday night for the Troop leadership (we are a Boy-Led troop as Scouting was intended), and Harrison was elected Senior Patrol Leader. So for the next 6 months, he's the big cheese. Pretty cool. He tried for the position 6 months ago and lost, but this time, he won. That was pretty cool. I led and closed out the standing O he got when his named was announced by the Scoutmaster. There were 8 candidates, and he won. There's lots of happy in our household this week because of that huge confidence boost for him.
Are these numbers just troop or do they include the pack?? And How many troops do you have in your area?

Our troop is small only like ten scouts and our pack did grow some but only like 25 kids. I think we have to many troops in our area so numbers are smaller (we have a two troops that are only like 1 1/2 distance in between them)

Ours has yet to come,my kids love just being involved. I am lucky my kids don't care if their cars crash and burn,they have fun just being there and building their cars.So this make it easier for me lol.
Our pack is also doing a space derby this year which will be our first.We did it at our round table last week.If the leaders had fun with it then I know the kids are going to

Summer Camp promotion season officially kicked off in our Troop last Monday night when I stood up and gave my first announcement about it.

Our online sign-up form went live on Wednesday, and as of this point...


... the adults are way more excited about it than the boys are! As of this morning I have 8 adults signed up, and only 1 Scout.

That will certainly change, but I am just fascinated by that. We're all pretty pumped.

Last year I took 90 Scouts and 35 adult leaders... the year before was 82 Scouts and 29 adults leaders, so yeah, the current stats WILL change - it's just pretty funny. Usually it's the Scouts who are pumped and sign-up first, while the adults figure out vacation time, blah, blah, blah... but tonight the next announcement will be made, and I'll razz the boys that the adults are more excited than they are. Then their competitive spirit will start to kick in.
