Weekend Camping/Bruins Tickets/Pack Meeting

Good Morning Pack!

I apologize for the delay in this email.  We were waiting to see what was the best course of action with regards to this weekend's event.  We also have a few additional announcements.  Please take the time to read through this email.

Due to the still heightened EEE threat, we have made the hard decision to not go camping at Sudden Pond this weekend.  Instead!!!!!! We will be having a campout at Camp Nihan in Saugus on Saturday.  This is now a DAY event only from 11-3.  Dens will be having separate activities from 11-1:30 and we will finish the day with a campfire program from 1:30-3.

Camp Nihan is located at 131 Walnut Street, in Saugus (just before the Kohls plaza entrance).  We may have to be creative with parking but look for a separate email about that.

Unfortunately, since there will not be much down time, we are not having any whittling station for this event.  Den's might have whittling projects, but that is up to each Den Leader.

This is a Class B event, no uniforms are required.  

Some Den may be cooking lunch as part of their activity.  Leaders will be sending out information soon if that will be the case.  If you Den is not, please bring a lunch with you.

Make sure to bring enough water for everyone in your family.

If you cannot make it this weekend, please make sure to let your Den Leader know.  

At the campout this weekend, we will be handing out Class B T-Shirts to those who do not already have one.  Lions through Bears should have a Blue pack shirt.  Please make sure to size the shirt so that they can wear it all 4 years.  Webelos and AOL scouts should have a Yellow pack Shirt.  Make sure to find your Den leader at the event and they will make sure to get you a shirt.

If you have already ordered Bruins tickets, our Cubmaster, Mr. Pothier, will have them at this weekend's campout.  If you will not be able to attend this weekend, please let us know so that we can determine a way to get you the tickets before Monday's game.  We are asking scouts to wear their class B uniforms.

Our next pack meeting is Thursday October 17th.  Please note we will be starting on time, so consider arriving a few minutes early so that you don't miss anything.  Unless it is stated in an email, all scouts should attend all Pack Meetings in their Class A uniform.

We are asking everyone to please pay their registration fees by the next pack meeting.  Fees are currently $95 per scout and $85 for each additional scout in your family.  You have multiple options to choose from.  
     1. Hand either check or cash to your Den Leader.
     2. Hand either check or cash to Jessica or Rose at the "Campout".
     3. Venmo to the pack account.  Please make sure to mark the payment is for registration fees.  The handle for Venmo is:

If you have any questions about any of the items in this email, please let us know.
