Hello Everyone – Ive been able to secure Halyburton Park for the End of Year Cookout. Cinco de Mayo! 4-6pm at Shelter #1. Attached is a ‘real time’ Google document that can be edited individually. I’ve tried to think of what we’ll need but please fill in what you can bring and add what you think of extra. You should be able to click on above link and go right into the document.
For those who don’t know, Halyburton is on 17th St Extension and has an awesome bike trail so bring bikes, skateboards, scooters, etc. http://www.halyburtonpark.com/
Also, bring an outdoor game if you have something…..maybe even include it on the spreadsheet so everyone else sees it. THIS IS OPEN TO ALL CUB SCOUTS AND THEIR ENTIRE FAMILIES. We’ll keep this casual so uniforms are optional. Hope to see everyone and their families.
As always, call or email w/ ???s . Hoke. 910-352-2825.

Hello All – I just wanted to send an email regarding the Pack Camping trip next weekend. I won’t be available to attend (working that weekend) but I believe we’ll have maybe 10-15 kids w/ Parents attached that are lucky enough to go. Here are some details and thoughts:
Sign up ASAP. I spoke w/ Beth Whitley at the local BSA Cape Fear Council and she mentioned that because of the pending rainstorms this weekend, she would have many campers cancel this weekend and rebook for next weekend. It will fill up. Go to http://www.capefearcouncilbsa.org/images/stories/pdfs/CubScoutResidentCamp/2013/2013%20cub%20scout%20resident%20camp%20brochure.pdf to fill out the form. Prices are embedded in that form. You are not enrolled until you pay. You may pay online (there is a PAYPAL fee) or pay at the Council Office on Longstreet. You may fax in form for registration OR scan/email into Beth Whitley at email@example.com , or drop it off. Again, you are not registered until you pay. The fee includes 3 meals Saturday and Breakfast Sunday morning for each person registered.
http://www.scouting.org/filestore/HealthSafety/pdf/whole.pdf is the site for the Health form. This is a MUST when checking in . Go ahead and print, fill out, and have ready for them. Life is much easier and quicker this way. You cannot camp, not probably even attend daily activities if you don’t have this form.
http://www.capefearcouncilbsa.org/camping/camp-mcneill is where you begin for additional details on the trip. Click on CAMPING => CAMP MCNEIL => SPRING RESIDENT CAMP to get additional details including: location, directions, suggestions on what to bring. The camp is available two nights. You may stay two nights, one night, or simply drive up Saturday just for the day to attend the activities.
I will request a Campsite for next weekend but nothing is guaranteed. I should know next Thursday or Friday morning what campsite we are assigned to and I’ll let you know. The theme is ‘Mind craft’ and I know a lot of kids are into that now…..that should really get them excited. The idea of the weekend is that you will have maybe 8, or so, session activities that the Scouts can attend. The Camp usually gives blocks of campers a schedule so that they are aren’t falling on top of each other and everyone is nice and spread out among the campsite. You will go from session to session, earning activity loops along the way. With lunch breaks and then afternoon breaks, the kids have some down time to spend or revisit their favorite Session (usually BB Gun or Archery, let’s face it!) . Have them take their Uniform shirt for Dinner and Campfire after that. I know I may have left something out here so let me know any questions or comments, Hoke.
