Pack Meeting this Thursday, Feb 11

Our monthly Pack meeting will be held this Thursday, February 11, 6:30 pm at the Greenwood Union Church. It's Take-It-Apart Day!

The Scouts will be learning how things work by, well, taking them apart. First of all, you'll need something to take apart: small appliance, toaster, tool, anything that doesn't contain hazardous materials. Please no CRTs or anything containing coolants like dehumidifiers or air conditioners. If you don't have anything laying around, perhaps you can share with a friend. If you have anything extra, bring it along to share. We've already had a few things donated, too.

You will need to bring tools: screwdrivers, pliers, etc. Safety goggles are always a good thing. It's a good idea to label your tools with a piece of masking tape so you don't lose them. We discourage the use of hammers because of flying pieces and the general mayhem that hammers provoke.

We'll also have a "creation" table set up with glue guns for Scouts that want to re-assemble pieces into something creative. If you have a glue gun and would like to help out, please bring it (Hint, hint, moms!)
We will also need volunteers to help tote the trash away. If you have the capacity in your vehicle, please let James know.

In short, the goal of this activity is to walk through some "creative destruction" with your Scout to investigate what goes on in the inside. It's a lot of fun.

Finally, please remember that final payment for the Armory sleepover is due at this meeting. To fill the remaining few slots, we are opening up the registration to other siblings and even friends on a first come, first serve basis. See Jeff with your payment or to sign up.
