Blue & Gold Agenda Wrapup

Pack 1776 families-

The Blue and Gold banquet again proved to be one of the highlights of our Scouting year.

It brought together our Pack's families for a dinner and an evening of fun. The tri-tip, chicken & spaghetti meal was super yummy, but even more important was the warm, congenial atmosphere created as families enjoy each other's company.

The entertainment was awesome! Special thanks to Timothy James & his fantastic magic show. He truly kept the audience entertained. For those who got to stay until the end, naturalist Red & Hayley showed us all the cool dance moves with their rendition of the shindizzle!

For those of you who want to share pictures & videos, we encourage you to post them on http://pack1776.smugmug.com . All the posting instructions can be found on our Pack website.

Another BIG "THANK YOU!" to the Blue & Gold organizers who helped make this one of the best events that our Pack has ever put on. I’d like to take the time to recognize them:

Scott E
Susan K
Susan L
Lydell B
Kim D
Terry H
Pam M
Bill M

And finally, congratulations once again to the graduating Webelos. It is particularly touching for me personally as I known most of them since their first grade Tiger cub year. I was honored to be their den leader for 3 years & their Cubmaster for the last two years.

These are a special group of young men.

Jaguar Hike – Mission Accomplished

Today's hike was not a comfortable one. After 75 minutes of walking briskly we were soaking wet.
But hikes are not supposed to be easy.

This hike was a good preparation for scouts who one day will interview the Jaguar people in the Amazon forest.

The jaguar hike (aka Lafayette reservoir) was a great character building event centered on endurance.

Eka and I want to recognize the following scouts who completed it:

  • Warren H
  • Andrew K
  • Jacob K
  • Colin H
  • Thomas M
  • Matthew I

Blue & Gold Agenda

Pack 1776 families-

As you know, we are having our annual Blue & Gold banquet this Friday night. For those of you who are new to scouting, the blue and gold banquet is where we celebrate the birthday of Scouting. This year is extra special as we are celebrating our 100th anniversary of Scouting in America. We will also be celebrating the Webelos II Cub Scouts bridging to Boy Scouts. This is our ceremony to honor their transition.

Cub Scouts and leaders should wear their full Class A uniform as this is THE formal event of the year. There will be awesome food, outstanding entertainment, and guaranteed fun for all.

Seating is limited due to the MPR capacity & we had to have a proper head count for the food order, so hopefully everyone responded to the evite.
