Pack 722 Response to COVID-19

As we are sure you are all aware, COVID-19 is causing many events to be cancelled and postponed.

Current CDC guidance as well as guidance from the State and Town of Wakefield includes canceling of all large group events.

With this in mind, due to the State of Emergency in the Commonwealth and out of an abundance of caution, Pack 722 is suspending all Pack meetings and programs effective Saturday, March 14. The Pack will advise when meetings and programming will resume. 

Individual den's may be holding small meetings depending on the weather and schedules.  Please use your family's best judgement whether you should attend.

At this time, District Pinewood derby is also postponed and we will let you know the new date, as soon as it is available.

Pinewood Derby Update

Hello Pack722,

Thank you everyone for participating in a fantastic day of pinewood derby racing! It was great to see all of the scouts treating each other with respect and good sportsmanship. 

I have posted all of the results from the races on the website. Click on this link to visit the page.

*Note: During the separate races for family and leaders, due to a glitch in the software, we lost the standings for the family race. Hopefully you took note of the standings when you were present. If anyone has a picture of the family race results

The Derby Weigh In will be Friday March 6 from 6:30-8pm (sorry no early check ins).  No cars will be allowed to be checked in on Saturday March 7th (derby day).  All cars will be kept overnight at the church.  If you personally cannot attend the weigh in, please give your car to someone who can check it in for you.  No Uniforms are required.

No car can weigh more that 5 ounces. The Pack uses one scale to record the Official weight. All cars are checked in using that one scale to keep things even.  We will have a few tools and graphite to make minor adjustments to your cars if necessary.  

Derby Day
Our Annual Derby will be held at the Church on Saturday March 7th.  Races are held by rank.  Please make sure to arrive 15 minutes prior to your start time, we do not wait for everyone to arrive.  This is a Class A uniform event.  We will have a Concession Stand, however if the scouts can bring their water bottles, we are actively trying to be more conservation minded as a Pack.  Even if you cannot attend the day, your car can race!

Battleship Cove Sleepover Event - Time Sensitive

On May 9th, we are planning a visit to Battleship Cove. Spending an overnight on board one of the mightiest defenders of freedom truly is an unforgettable experience.  

Although Battleship Massachusetts was designed to carry 1,800 men, she typically carried nearly 2,300 on board throughout the war. Steaming more than 225,000 miles over four long years, Big Mamie rotated her crew frequently, hosting more than 6,000 different officers and crew by 1945.

You'll be sleeping exactly where these men slept: in authentic sailors' racks.  Built of tough cotton canvas stretched across a sturdy aluminum frame, these racks will give you a firsthand feel of what it was like to be a sailor in World War II.  Upon arriving to the museum, campers are led to their assigned bunkrooms where they may stow their sleeping bags and belongings. 

If you're lucky, your average hotel might throw in a complimentary continental breakfast with your lodging fee, but at Battleship Cove we give you breakfast and dinner. All meals are served "chow style" in the original Officers' Wardroom on board USS Massachusetts.  Campers then partake in a number of activities such as the new "Kilroy IS Here" scavenger hunt,  story teller,  feature films, play the game Battleship aboard a battleship, have a set of your own dog tags made, and much more.  

Due to the restrictions with registration, we need to cut off the sign ups on Saturday March 7th.  This is open to current enrolled scouts and their parent/guardians (sorry no siblings).  Total cost is $69 per person.  A deposit of $35 per person is due by Saturday March 7th.  We will not be able to hold your reservation if the deposit is not paid.

Please use the attached sign up to register.

Payment can be made to either Rose or Jessica at the Derby Check In or at the Derby itself.  Cash or Check made out to Pack 722 will be accepted.

Thank you!
