Fishing Derby Results

Thanks to all the scouts, families, and friends of scouts that came out today for the fall fishing derby!  Though chilly at the start with a cool wind, fish were caught and we hope a good time was had by all.

Before getting to our derby winners and their prizes, I noted that all fish caught today were either Yellow or White Perch.  Baits used were worms, corn, hot dog, and a variety of artificial lures - with a chartreuse jig with twisty-tail plastic grub taking the largest fish of the day.  Did you know that the Massachusetts state record for Yellow Perch is 2lbs 2oz and 17 inches long, and 3lbs 8oz and 18 inches long for White Perch?  While our fish today did not quite rival those records, they were still fun and exciting to catch!

Our Fall Fishing Derby Winners

Most Fish: Lincoln F., Webelos, Den 8 - 3 Fish Total
Biggest Fish: Jace M., Webelos, Den 5 - 9" Yellow Perch

Our winners will receive a gift certificate worth $20 to either Cravings or Hobby Bunker right here in Wakefield!  Congratulations to the winners!

Popcorn orders

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to thank everyone who has helped with the popcorn fundraiser this year. There were a lot of Scouts who stepped up and raised a lot of money for the pack. 

Just a gentle reminder that you should have handed in your popcorn forms by now. Popcorn orders will be submitted on Friday morning which is the deadline. Unfortunately, If I don't have the orders in by then any orders you have taken on your forms will not be part of the orders going out on Friday and thus will be null and void. 

I don't want anyone to be caught out with unfilled orders.

Pack 722 Fishing Derby!

Hello Pack 722,

This Saturday, October 23rd, is our fall fishing derby at Lake Quannapowitt.  Bring a Friend!  We will fish from 8AM to 10AM along the south shore of the lake by the playground and boating area. We will have prizes for the scout that catches the most fish and the scout that catches the largest fish (by length).

The Pack will provide worms and corn for bait, and we will bring a few spare rods along with some fishing tackle Scouts should be in Class B uniforms with hats, and dressed for the weather.  Please bring whatever fishing gear you may want to use.  Right now there is a slight chance of showers and chilly - Autumn has arrived.

Let's put those fishing skills that were practiced at Sudden Pond to work right here in Wakefield on Lake Q!

Yours in Scouting,
Your Pack Committee
