Does your son have friends who are interested in joining Pack 883?  Now is the time to get them involved!  We are recruiting boys at all levels. Please encourage your son to talk with his friends about Cub Scouts.

o Recruiting contest details:

    • During the recruiting period (from September through December), have your son invite his friends (brothers count too!) to join Pack 883.
    • Make sure your son’s name is listed as the “recruiter” on the new Scout’s application
    • The Cub Scout must join by the December Pack meeting to be included in the contest.
      • If your son recruits a new Cub Scout during the time of the contest, he will:
      • Receive a recruiter patch for his uniform
      • Get to throw a pie into the face of the Cubmaster at the December Pack Meeting
      • Have a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Wal-Mart in a drawing at each Pack Meeting between September and December
        • Each recruiter gets one entry for each new Cub Scout he recruits, so the more Cub Scouts he recruits, the greater his odds will be of winning
          • At the December meeting, we will draw for the Grand Prize (a $50 Wal Mart gift card)
          • Each recruiter gets one entry for each new Cub Scout he recruits, so the more Cub Scouts he recruits, the greater his odds will be of winning.
          • Even if your son wins a $10 Wal-Mart gift certificate at one of the other drawings, he will still be eligible for the Grand Prize Drawing.
