Klondike 2011

Monday, August 30th, 2010

Here’s something to think about while your air conditioner struggles to keep up with the hot temperatures outside – Klondike 2011 is right around the corner!

Klondike is Carroll District’s annual winter adventure, and Pack 883 will be participating again in this exciting activity!  This event is Cub Scouting at its best – with lots of hands on activities and events for your Cub Scout, and a really fun time out in the cold (and it is usually COLD)! 

Cub Scout activities for Tiger Cub through Webelos I Dens occur all day on Saturday.  Webelos II Dens are encouraged to camp and participate in the Boy Scout activities. 

See the flyer for more details:  Klondike 2011 – 08302010

I know what you are thinking  – “It’s hot outside, and this event is almost 4 months away.”  However, registration is due on or before the Pack Meeting in October, so get those registration forms and checks in the mail.

Popcorn Sale Kick Off

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Popcorn Sale Packets were mailed at the end of August to all Cub Scouts. You may begin selling popcorn as soon as you receive your Popcorn Sale Packet!  If you need more order forms, please contact Tim and Kelly Thimmesch at

New Cub Scouts will receive their Popcorn Sale Packet in the mail.  If you son has joined the Pack, and he has not received a packet within about a week of joining the Pack, please email Marc Fischer at

Dear Pack 883,

It is that time of year again!  Pack 883 will be selling Camp Masters popcorn to support our Cub Scout program for the upcoming year.  Due to the wonderful response last year, we have decided to kick off the 2010 popcorn sale early this year.

Please review the attached packet for details regarding Pack 883’s biggest fundraiser.  Last year, we sold over $23,000 in popcorn to support pack activities.  This resulted in a commission to our pack of over $9,000.   We would love to exceed our sales in 2010.

With the exception of the order form, all of the materials you will receive in the mail are also duplicated here:  Popcorn Sale Packet – 08102010

Feel free to contact us at or at the September Pack meeting if you have any questions.

Yours in Scouting,

Kelly and Tim Thimmesch
