Paragon Point – Den 1 Brittany Knolls – Foxes
Fossil Creek – Den 5 Huntington Hills – Den 2 & Tiger Cubs

Fairway Estates and Solar Estates are not covered and will not have signs posted. If you have scouts that live in those neighborhoods they are welcome to collect cans from neighbors.
If you have put flyers up in the neighborhood, please check porches for bags left out for scouts. Every year we get calls from people who left food out that was not picked up.
FRIENDS OF SCOUTING – All pledges are due tonight.
SCOUT SHOW – Saturday, April 5
Chuck and Rick Wells volunteered to take this on. Are we still going to participate? We will need scouts to man the booths if we are going to be in this show.
SUMMER CAMP – Sign up is now in progress. Have your application in by April 1st as they will open the camps up to other councils at that time. We will meet the FOS discount goal.
POPCORN MONEY DOES NOT SHOW UP ON THE FORM THAT IS SENT TO COUNCIL!!!!
Any popcorn money discounts should be handled with our pack treasurer – Cindy Clark. If you are not sure what each scout has earned towards camp, give Cindy a call.
WEBELOS OUTDOOR LEADER TRAINING is May 5 (all day). This is a great class to take before you hit the world of Webelos.
PINEWOOD DERBY – Weigh in times on Saturday, March 24th are 2-3PM for Tigers and Wolf and 3-4PM for Bears and Webelos. The race is on Sunday, March 25th starting at 1:00PM until 4:00PM or so. Tigers race first, followed by Wolf, Bear, Webelos and Other (siblings, dads, etc.). If a scout has made a car for Show competition only, please let the weigh-in person know if you want the car to race with your den or if you do not want it to race at all.
We still need help with set-up, weigh-in, race assistants and a judge.
SUMMER ACTIVITIES – Jody Leone and Laura Dekdebrun are the coordinators this year. So far, this is what is planned:
June Canoeing and paddle boats at City Park lake and a family picnic
July Visit Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne

Do we want to have a pack campout this year? Jody also needs input on dates for these events.
PACK T-SHIRTS will be ready for sale at the April pack meeting. Estimated cost will be $8.00/shirt for a light-colored, heavy cotton (Hanes Beefy-T) t-shirt. Child sizes and adult sizes are the same cost. I would suggest we only order adult sizes S-XL as a child size XL is equal to an adult S. Rob Pait will be handling this for us – go Rob!

Natural Area Foxes and Den 5 have cleanup this month. Contact Karen Moore at 377-1826 to arrange trash pick.
Storage Unit We now have one! We need to compile a list of what will be stored. Any suggestions for a quartermaster?
Friends of Scouting Frank Ramirez will now be doing this. Our goal for this year is: $1,711 for reduced camp fees (Level 1), and $2,360 for free rank awards (Level II). Last year we raised $2,920 of which $455 was from the Cake Bake in January. I dont know what our goal was last year, but I do know the Cake Bake pushed us up to Level II
Pack T-Shirts I have checked on prices:
One color printing, two sides (front/back or chest/back) $5.92
**We would also need to add tax to these prices.
There will also be set up fees of $15 for one side, $19 for left chest print & back, or $30 for front and back printing. Would the pack pay for these one-time set up fees or do we want to pass them on in the price of the shirts? Once the screen is made we will not have to pay these fees again for any future printings.
January Pack Meeting CAKE BAKE
The theme is "When I Grow Up". Scouts should make a cake that represents a career they are interested in. Here are the rules:
Just an idea do we want to consider a "parent or leader" category in the future? How about a Cubmasters Cake entry?
February - Blue & Gold Banquet Lisa Hardebeck , Chairman (207-0514)
Webelos II dens will have until Friday, February 16th to turn in awards to Jennifer. No other dens will receive awards this month.
Invitations will be given to den leaders tonight to hand out to parents. Please emphasize that the whole family is invited, although the last portion of the banquet will be the Webelos II graduation ceremony. In other words, babies and toddlers are welcome but make plans to have them quiet!
Centerpiece contest same prize of $25 towards camp fees for the winning den?
Webelos II dens (Flaming Dragons, Badgers, Cobras, Vipers) will set up for the banquet; Webelos I dens (Sharks and Foxes) will take down afterwards.
Each den should make place cards for their table (see idea in the Program Helps). Plastic tablecloths will be provided. The tables are rectangular.
