Sept. Pack Meeting

posted Sep 11, 2019, 12:54 PM by Webmaster Pack30

Now that the scouts are back in to a routine of school, sort of we can get our year started.   Our first pack meeting will be this Wednesday at 6:15pm at Randall in the gym.  Although we will be outside for a bit, uniforms should be worn to the meeting.

We will be doing an obstacle course outside if the weather cooperates, popcorn tasting, getting ready for our fall fundraiser and other fun stuff.

We will be handing out our fundraising packets that night as well as have our signup out for River Rats in May of 2020(so far away, I know).  We always seem to max out our allotment for River Rats so sign up early and get your deposit of $15 per person in to our treasurer.

It would be great if our scouts would wear a scout t shirt to school on Wed. to help promote scouts if possible.  Like a river rats or swamp fox shirt, not the dress uniform.

We, as leaders, are looking forward to another fun filled year with our scouts!

Now that the scouts are back in to a routine of school, sort of we can get our year started.   Our first pack meeting will be this Wednesday (Sept. 11th) at 6:15pm at Randall in the gym.  Although we will be outside for a bit, uniforms should be worn to the meeting (new or interested scouts don't need a uniform for the first meeting). 

We will be doing an obstacle course outside if the weather cooperates, popcorn tasting, getting ready for our fall fundraiser and other fun stuff. 

For our returning scout families, we will be handing out our fundraising packets that night as well.

We will also have our signup out for River Rats in May of 2020(so far away, I know, but we need to register early).  We always seem to max out our allotment for River Rats so sign up early and get your deposit of $15 per person in to our treasurer.

It would be great if our scouts would wear a scout t shirt to school on Wed. to help promote scouts if possible.  Like a River Rats or Swamp Fox shirt, not the dress uniform.

August Summertime Event

posted Sep 9, 2019, 7:36 AM by Webmaster Pack30

We thought we would try to do one last outing this summer before the scouts are back in school.  We are planning a games event at Buchner park at 2pm on Sunday, August 25th.  If your scout has  attended one event in each month during the summer they will be eligible to receive the summertime pack award.

We anticipate having  a water games (be prepared to get wet), and other team or group games.  If you scout has a friend that might be interested in scouting please invite them to come as well to show them some of the fun events we do.  I would anticipate the event lasting approximately hour and we should be able to gather in the open area near the pavilion.  If for some reason that is full we will find another spot at the park to do our games.

Hope to see everyone there.  If you know that you are coming please let me know so we can make sure to make enough games planned for all the scouts.  Have them wear a class B scout shirt(like a camping or other scouting t shirt)

 

Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast - 2019

posted Jul 6, 2019, 6:55 AM by Webmaster Pack30

Once a year, we have an opportunity to assist our chartered organization, the 
Waukesha Noon Kiwanis, in their annual fundraiser. The Kiwanis hold a pancake breakfast at the Waukesha County Fair to help fund youth organizations in the city of Waukesha.

Those that are interested may sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0D44AFAE2CA1FD0-kiwanis3
Please register before July 10th, as we need an accurate count of volunteers.

Volunteers are requested to perform an 1 hour shift, and scouts and adults will assist with carrying plates/drinks to tables, clearing tables, filling syrup containers, filling coffee, or offering more pancakes to those that are seated. 
Participants will also receive tickets to park and enter the fair, so you may enjoy the fair after your shift is complete.

Each year, our scouts do a great job, and enjoy helping out. It is also an event that the Kiwanis really appreciate the help at.

If you have questions or comments, please contact Jennifer Nienhaus or Eric Johnson.

CANCELED: Miller Park Scout Day

posted Jul 6, 2019, 6:54 AM by Webmaster Pack30

Unfortunately, due to some unforseen circumstances, the scout day at Miller Park has been canceled for Pack 30 participants. Due to a lack of communication with the council planning committee, we were not able to secure the tickets necessary to participate. If you signed up and wanted to attend, we are very sorry. 

Pack 30 Camp-out - 2019

posted Jul 6, 2019, 6:48 AM by Webmaster Pack30

June 8-9th Pack 30 Family Camp 

We will have further details soon but wanted to remind anyone who did not sign up at the last pack meeting to let Eric Johnson know how many will be attending so we can get a total count for food. We will have games, a hike, work on cooking skills, and much more! Also to note for those scouts who need to camp overnight as a requirement, this would be a great time to get that requirement.

This year we are going to Mukwonago Cty. Park

We will be in Group Site 6.

As always, if you don't want to camp both nights, please let one of the leaders know. We need to rent the facility for the entire weekend, so if you enjoy camping and want to stay for both nights, please do so.

We are looking forward to a low-key camping experience where our scouts can have fun and the parents can get to know each other a little better.

We look forward to seeing everyone there.
