Pack 1980 Scouts had a Blast at Summer Rocket Launch!

Posted on Jul 25 2015 - 10:17pm

Pack 1980 had a beautiful evening for the summer rocket launch at North Branch Park.  In the days leading up to the launch, scouts had built Estes rockets.  Scout Leaders David Pikulin and Scott Armstrong prepared 8 launch pads.  30 scouts and several family members launched rockets.  Some of the rockets reached an altitude of over 1100 feet.  Scouts had fun tracking down their rockets after landing.  The winds were to blame for several being blown into trees despite leaders taking the precaution to launch the rockets at an angle into the wind.  Scout Leader Steve Kovacs had also arranged for co-worker John Cain to pilot drones to take video of the rocket launch.  Thank you to David, Scott, and Steve for a fun summer event!  follow the "red more" link to see group pictures of Pack 1980 ranks at the summer rocket launch.

Thank you to all Pack 1980 scouts and family members who volunteered to collect school supplies for United Way's Stuff the Bus event at Rt. 22 Walmart.  Pack 1980 had 15 scouts, 4 den chiefs, and 5 Scout Leaders assist with the collection.  The shoppers at Walmart were very generous in their giving, donating over $700 in cash and purchasing enough school supplies to fill every seat on the school bus!  Follow the "read more" link to see additional pictures.


Pack 1980 Scouts at Cub Adventure 2015

Posted on Jul 18 2015 - 8:46pm

Seven scouts and six adults from Pack 1980 attended Cub Scout half-week resident camp at Musser Scout Reservation this past week. In addition to having fun at scout camp, these scouts are now eligible to pursue the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award!  During Cub Adventure, our group of scouts camped for three nights, participated in the 7 AM polar bear swim, shared all meals in the camp’s dining hall, enjoyed all program areas offered by the summer camp (swimming, boating, bb gun shooting, archery, slingshots, lassoing, scoutcraft, nature, handicraft, and STEM).  They also had fun cooking mountain pies, dessert burritos, and s’mores over their own campfire, hanging out playing cards, fishing, and playing gaga.  Pack 1980 scouts showed their scout spirit by sharing The Mosquitos Skit and the Dum-Dum-Dah-Dah song with the other resident campers and staff at the closing campfire program.
