Our next pack meeting (March 18th) will be a rocket launch. Please visit the dedicated page for details.

Make sure to build your rocket kit well ahead of time so the glue has time to dry.

Get ready to Splat

posted Dec 15, 2017, 7:03 PM by Pack Webmaster

This Sunday, December 17th is our last meeting of the year. More exciting though is that it's also the popcorn splat party! Come see if your den leader will get hit by a pie in the face ( has to do with how much popcorn their scouts sold)
Also this is your chance to get your pinewood derby kit so you have something to do over the holidays. See you then!

The next Pack Meeting is our annual cubmobile race. This is similar to a soapbox derby. Cars are provided to the Dens but YOU MUST BRING A BIKE HELMET for the safety of all riders. 

Boys take turns riding and pushing across the racetrack

Please wear your pack t-shirt instead of your uniforms. Things fly everywhere once we start racing!

Location is Yorkchester Academy 901 Yorkchester dr 77079.
Park in the South parking lot for easier access to the running track.

There is no shade at this location, so you are encouraged to bring your camping chairs, and pop-up Covers, if you have them.

A short meeting will be conducted at the end of the races to give advancement and racing awards.
