Finally getting back in the swing of things. I did some clean up work on our pack website today (pack751.org). We want to encourage the parents to check there first as a sort of one-stop-shop. We're also hoping to add some things to the site that the boys would be interested in.
Also did some research on the Journey to Excellence award for the pack. This is a goal that the pack has set, and we shouldn't have any trouble achieving it. I think it's a great guide to make sure a pack is staying on track. Thankfully we shouldn't require much in the way of change. We have new leadership in the pack (I've taken over as Cubmaster), but we've been left with a great program.
I'll be announcing our Hiking Club to the pack in the next few days. I had hoped to start this month, but we'll be hiking (at least) on the first Sunday of the month starting in June. Thanks to those who offered input, and I'll let you know how it turns out. I'll also share our pack's "rules" when they're published. We definitely owe a debt to some other packs who've been kind enough to publish what's worked for them! If anyone has any advice, I'm still happy to listen.
Finally, after yesterday's post I signed my Webelos son up for the Webelos Outdoor Weekend next month. They'll have a chance to see what Boy Scouts is all about, and hopefully meet some guys from a few different troops. He's really looking forward to it!
