Recruiting Contest

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Do You Know a Future Cub Scout?  Participate in Our Recruiting Contest!

Here’s How It Works

During the recruiting period (from June through December), have your son invite his friends (brothers count too!) to join Pack 883.

  •  
    • IMPORTANT:  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 winningdi
    • 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

Summertime Pack Activities

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

Just because school is out, doesn’t mean that our fun activities come to an end!  Join your Cub Scout friends (and bring a friend who might want to join our Cub Scout Pack) for some great summer activities!

These activities are not mandatory.  Feel free to come to the events that interest your son – or take the summer off!  Boys who attend at least three Summertime Pack Activities earn the Summertime Pack Award in September.  Boys who attend six activities will receive a special Pack 883 recognition.

Volunteers are needed to help run the events. We can have a wonderful summer with just a little bit of help. No experience necessary. Enthusiasm a must!

Let Melissa (scoutsdouglas@yahoo.com) know which event you will help with for your son!
