Hello Pack 1776 Families!

Just a quick reminder and invitation to our Outdoor Pack Meeting, Saturday Oct 12, from 2:00 to 6:00 at Lake Chabot Regional Park in Castro Valley. We are at the Elderberry picnic area (entrance to the picnic area is towards the end of the parking lot). See detail map here.

Like our indoor MPR pack meetings, all cubs and leaders should wear their snappy Class A uniforms, and get ready for an event full of fun, crafts and entertainment.

Your hiking chairs Ajay and Teresa would like our cubs to build stamina, enjoy, and learn during the 8 hikes they have planned this year.  To do so, they would like our cubs, their siblings, and family to participate in as many hikes as possible.   Come join us this Saturday on our first hike !

Here's what we have in store:

2:00-2:45 Outdoor Craft
The boys will make Hiking sticks to use for today and throughout the year.
2:45-4:00 Pack Hike
Hike in the wilds of Castro Valley. Hikers can sing along to the songs in this Scout Song Book
4:00-4:15 Skit Practice with Dens
"What's my line again?" Rehearsal makes for a great performance! Everyone does a skit, even the den leaders.
4:15-5:15 Pack Meeting
Awards, and a special presentation of the Bobcat Badges to our new cubs as we welcome them to Pack 1776.
5:15 S'mores
When you're outdoors, they go great with the great outdoors.

If you're a little late, don't worry. Even if you miss the hike, we'll still have a fun pack event.
