WPC is closed today so the Blue Gold Banquet has been postponed until Tuesday, March 3rd. Still at 6:00 in Westminster Hall at WPC.

We will still celebrate the boys’ accomplishments but discretion dictates that we wait until everyone can safely arrive at the party!

Please pass the word around to your den-mates to ensure everyone gets the message.

Scouting is Cool………

Aren’t you glad you aren’t camping in this weather?

PLEASE have this back to Mr. Mackey by the 20th. We MUST have our final number to PP by Friday the 21st. If you need to wait to pay, then the absolute cut-off is Friday the 28th but I MUST have your commitment by the 21st. I hope this is clear.

Each Scout must have a parent (or grandparent) accompany them on this excursion but moms and dads are both welcome if they’d like to go.

Siblings are also welcome but the minimum age is six (6) years old. No exceptions allowed by PP.

Please let me know if you have any questions but check out the following link first: https://www.patriotspoint.org/overnight_camping/


Ok –

You wonder why we sell all of the POPCORN – well it is to participate in Fun, Family-Centered activities like GOLD RUSH! This is one of the highlights of the Scout Year and one not to be missed.

I have attached the Registration Form for this year. Please review the details, especially if you are a new Scout Family. You may spend one or both nights and register for any or all or no meals with us. PLEASE make sure you sign up for meals if you do plan to eat – we have to plan based on the expected number of bellies to fill. All family members are welcome – we love grandparents and siblings especially. Note that there are fees just to play the Gold Rush games, even if you only come for the day.

If you do not have camping experience, that is ok – this is easy camping and there are lots of Pack 205 folks who will be glad to help.

Please note on the registration form that you are responsible for your family’s beverages for the weekend. We will have milk, juice, coffee and hot chocolate at breakfast, but you are on your own for the balance of the weekend.

Who can tell what the weather will be GR weekend? We camp anyway so go ahead and send in your forms and fees.

We will discuss additional details at the Pack meeting on the Tuesday (14th) before Gold Rush, but send me any questions you may have.

Scouting and Camping are Cool!
