Pack News - May Edition

Good Morning, Pack 722,

First, Battleship Cove - Saturday, June 4th to Sunday, June 5th in Fall River, MA.  Siblings ages 5+ are welcome to join us.  Cost is $35 per scout and $69 per person for all others.  We do have scholarships available for folks if needed - please reach out to your den leader or one of the pack leaders if needed.  Please be sure to sign-up by the end of this week on the Sign-Up Genius at the following link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/409094CA9AC2BA0F58-battleship1  We are asking that at least the $35 deposit be submitted via cash or check to one of the pack leaders, or via Venmo (@pack722wakefield - Wakefield Pack Seven-Twenty-Two) by the end of Friday, May 6th.


The pack will have a spring fishing derby at Lake Quannapowitt on Saturday, May 14th - 8AM to 9AM.  This will be on the south end of the lake by the playground.  Corn and worms will be provided by the pack.  We have not yet decided on if we will have any prizes or competitions, but if you have ideas, let us know.  Come out and join us, and tight lines!


Evening of Friday, May 20th - Pack Crossover.  The plan is to run this evening of scout recognition outside and by rank, as we did last year, so keep your eyes open for an announcement on when each rank should plan to arrive.  This is always an exciting evening as we recognize the scouts for their year of working on adventure requirements, culminating in earning that next rank and progressing along the scouting path.  More information to come - save the date!
