Pack 1980 Summer 2016 Activities

Posted on Jul 17 2016 - 2:25pm

Summer is now here and we are excited to let you know that Pack 1980 will be offering different activities throughout the summer to keep the excitement of Cub Scouting going all year-long!  Scouts should wear Pack 1980 t-shirts to most events. Keep checking the webpage and your e-blasts because we will be adding a couple more activities (fishing, bike hike, and Grow-a-Row service project).

Bonus:  Boys who participate in three summertime pack events are eligible to receive the National Summertime Award pin. (The summertime award scouts receive will match their current rank badge they are wearing rather than the rank they are working on - boys who have attained the rank of Tiger will receive the Tiger pin even though they were promoted to Wolf at our Family Campout.)

July 25th:  Summer Rocket Launch (North Branch Park)

Pack 1980 Cub Scouts are invited to build an Estes Rocket model rocket this summer and launch it with the pack on Monday, July 25th.  Pack 1980 will be ordering rockets for your scout to assemble and engines for the launch.  We will order a rocket for each scout registered.  Please let us know by Sunday July 10th if your scout will participate!  The cost to each scout will be no more than $10.

July 30th:  Stuff the Bus Service Project with United Way’s Tools 4 School (Rt. 22 Walmart)

We are looking for scouts who would be available to help with a service project to help the United Way’s Tools 4 School campaign.  On Saturday, July 30th, United Way will have a Stuff the Bus event at Rt.22 Walmart from 8:30 AM – 2:30 PM.  Our scouts would stand outside Walmart and pass out papers that have school supply shopping lists.  Our scouts would also receive any purchased  school supplies or money donations.  Some scouts may help with counting the number of people who make donations.  Some scouts might also help with actually stuffing the bus.

Family Campout 2016 Picture Summary! Congratulations to All Cub Scouts who Earned their Rank Badges!

Posted on Jun 11 2016 - 9:12am

Threat of storm did not deter Pack 1980 Cub Scout Families from having a great time at our annual Picnic Dinner and Rank Promotion Campfire Program.  Most also camped over and enjoyed campfires, time with friends, fishing, and play on the banks of the river.  Many thanks to all who helped create lasting memories for our scouts, including:

  • Scott Wootton for delivering Popeyes Fried Chicken for our picnic dinner.
  • Jay Wieder for cooking hot dogs for our picnic dinner and frying oreos for a special treat!
  • Dan McDonald and the Webelos for leading our campfire program.  Special shout-out to Josh McDonald for leadig scouts in the "Bear in Tennis Shoes" song!
  • All den leaders and den chiefs for leading scouts all year long to advancement and then preparing scouts for their den skits.
  • Scott Armstrong for designing an awesome Pack 1980 fire ring, building the campfire, and preparing the s'more supplies.
  • Jay Wieder and Jared Beatrice for cooking egg-in-a-bag camping breakfast.
  • Cindy Barckholtz, Zac Barckholtz, and Peter Bellek for leading our Sunday morning Scouts' Own Service.
  • The bald eagle that soared along our campsite.  Scouts were in awe to see the eagle perch in a tree and then dive down to the river to pluck out the largest fish we had seen in the river...though the fish squirmed away from his talons! What a treat to close out our Cub Scout campout!
