Pack Meeting this Saturday (10/9) at 6:00pm

Just a reminder that we have our first indoor Pack Meeting this coming Saturday,October 9 at 6:00pm in the United Methodist Church hall (or gym,if you like).  Parking is around the back.

The main activity will be Rubber Band Car Races with the Dens competing against one another.  The idea is for the parents to bring in a mix of common household materials,and then challenge each Den to construct 1 or more vehicles powered by rubber bands.  The vehicles will be judged on distance traveled.

We will also discuss our Popcorn Fund Raising efforts,Den structures,upcoming events,etc.

  • Anything you think would help make a great rubber band vehicle
