Welcome back!


Cubmaster Corner:

Welcome to Spring, and good bye to all our Webelos that bridged out.  I look forward to seeing them in the future growing into men, the Scouting way!  Special thanks to troops 176, 199, 269 and 449 for accepting our Scouts.  Good luck to all on their trail to Eagle Scout.

In April, we will be awarding the Webelos rank and bridging those boys into Arrow of Light patrols.  They have a challenging year ahead of them as they complete adventures and go on campouts with Boy Scout troops.

Please take this opportunity to investigate the day camps and overnight adventure camps available at SFBAC.ORG.  Day Camp is available in Newark, at Birch Grove.  Last summer I attended Webelos Adventure camp at Camp Royaneh, where the boys get to camp for 5 nights in the Redwoods near Santa Rosa.  Archery, BB guns, swimming, wood craft, fire starting, and leather craft, just to name a few.  This camp helps the Webelos Scout with the scout skills needed to earn that coveted Arrow of Light.  There are more camping activities offered through the district.

On a more pressing note, we are searching high and low for someone to step up and replace me as your Cubmaster.  I have had tons of fun leading the Pack meetings, keeping my finger on the pulse of the Pack Committee, and making new friends at the District level.  Committing to this position includes 2 meetings a month and spending some time writing up a meeting agenda.  I found running the Pack meetings to be the most challenging for me.  I really enjoy watching the scouts grow, from Tigers to Boy Scouts.  Pack 176 deserves a motivated individual to take the lead and keep the program alive.  Please let Brian or myself know you are willing to help out.  Thank you!

CLASS B UNIFORMS

Our class “B” or "activities" uniform is an alternate uniform shirt, a t-shirt with the pack’s logo, worn to certain outdoor scouting events and activities. It is used mostly for outdoor activities and events during the spring and summer months. The class “B” uniform should only be worn to scouting events and activities when instructed by your Den Leader or Cubmaster. For all Pack and Den Meetings and most activities and events the normal full Class “A” Uniform must be worn.

Trail Trekker Series:
The Trail Trekkers Program is a BSA progressive hike award program that offers a series of monthly hikes which located throughout the Bay Area that can be completed by Cub Scout age boys (from 6-11 years) and their families. These are opportunities for outdoor adventures that are high in "boy appeal", that allow a boy and his family to learn about the world around them. Hikes include trails in Fremont, Sunol, Livermore, Marin, Oakland and Berkeley.  Some are more physically demanding, and more appropriate for Webelos-age boys. Others can be completed by any age group.  Check our website for updated info on which hike is being done each month.  For more information contact Roger at ruaboror@gmail.com
