Sales at Kroger: 

Each pack/troop was allowed to sign-up for 4 4-hour slots during the original Kroger Booth sign-up.   I was able to secure all Saturday or Sunday slots.  I have divided the slots into 2 hour shifts giving us a total of 8 shifts. You Den Leader should have reserved one of below slots for your Den and will manage the sales for each Den. If you can't make it the day you Den has a slot please contact your Den leader to see if you can join another Den for their sales slot.

Den 2 – 17 scouts – 2 slots

Den 6 – 12 scouts – 2 slots

If your group would like to have additional opportunities to sell in front of Krogers let me know.  After February 18th I can register for additional times should there be any available. 

 

Once we get closer to the Kroger sales dates I will send further details. For right now I just need to fill our 8 slots. 

 

# of books per Scout / Den

To start the sales each scout will get 10 books to sell individually.  There will be additional books available for Kroger sales.  Once your scouts have sold their original books I will have additional books for distribution. 

When distributing the coupon books to your scouts please advise them that Boy Scouts looks at these the same as cash.  At the end of the sales period, they are expecting to collect money or the books back.

PARENTS NOTE: If books are lost the expectation will be that payment will be made for the lost books. 

 

Take Flight with Scouting Incentives:

Scouts receive 1 License Point for each coupon book sold.  Prize levels start at 15 license points.  Also, each scout that sells 15 coupon books will receive the super salesman patch. 

If a scout sells 33 books their yearly recharter fee will be covered in November. Remember: A scout is Thrifty. 

If you accumulate less than the designated prize levels, License Points can be redeemed at Scout Fair, April 16th.

Cost:                     Scouts are free; parents, siblings, and guests are $10, payable at the door.

Pack 1999's Blue and Gold Banquet, to celebrate the birthday of Scouting, will be held on Saturday, 20 February 2016 from 6PM to 8PM.  Our Blue and Gold Banquet takes the place of our regular Thursday night Pack Meeting for February; and this year, will be held at Hassler Cafeteria.  Please bring a serving utensil to share your cake after it is judged.

Our B&G Banquet will be a fun-filled evening with food catered by Fuddrucker's, Scouting-related fun activities, a Carnival arranged by the Bears and our infamous Father/Son Cake Bake!  Check out the Cake Bake rules and the judging categories below.

 Each Pack 1999 Cub Scout's meal is paid for by the Pack.  Parents, siblings, and guests can get tickets at the door for $10 each.  Please register each attendee (including Scouts) and let us know the dinner choice:  hamburger (default choice), hot dog, or a salad with grilled chicken.  Registration deadline is Monday, February 15th . HERE

The purpose of the Father/Scout Cake Bake Contest is threefold:  (1) To provide all Cub Scouts and their male baking associates (i.e. dads, brothers, grandpas, uncles, neighbors, etc.) an opportunity and excuse to wreak havoc on their kitchens, (2) to attempt to create a gourmet dessert that rivals what’s served in the most gourmet restaurants and (3) to win a trophy for having tried your best to make a cake that looks, smells, and tastes, at least…edible.

Trophies will be awarded by our esteemed group of judges in the 13 categories listed below.  Scouts may choose to place their cakes in a specific category; however this will not limit the judge’s ability to award prizes outside the chosen specific categories.

Best Scout-Themed

Most Patriotic

Best Sport-Themed

Yummiest Looking

Most unappetizing Looking

  1. Only male cooks, advisors, and cleanup crews are allowed to participate. No advice, instructions, or help of any sort is allowed from the 'girls'.
  2. The cake and all decorations visible must be completely edible. You may use non-edible items for support, but they cannot be visible. Remember, this is a cake contest and we will be eating them for dessert at the banquet.
  3. Cake and icing mixes are allowed; however, we have heard that the more “from scratch” you make it, the messier it can get. And the messier it gets, the more fun you may have. (But don’t forget about the boys only cleanup part).

Friends of Scouting Campaign Started . . . Shooting for 100% Participation

Posted on Dec 8 2015 - 9:02pm

Friends of Scouting is an opportunity for families, friends, and alumni, to support Scouting.

Help us provide the resources necessary to make sure every youth can benefit from Scouting’s fun, exciting, adventure-filled activities that foster character, honesty, respect, and life-long values. The $24 annual Scouting registration fee goes directly to the National Council office of the Boy Scouts of America. Our Pack dues stay with our Pack to help pay for supplies, advancements, and our great program activities.  None of that money helps the Sam Houston Area Council. In order to keep Scouting affordable for all youth, our council runs an annual Friends of Scouting fundraising campaign.

Our Pack has a long history of being one of the most generous supporters of Friends of Scouting.  Our campaign will start with our FOS presentation at our Pinewood Derby.  Let's shoot for 100% participation!  

Friends of Scouting helps:

  • Recruit and train youth and leaders
  • Provide assistance to those in need
  • Keep our camps and activities affordable
  • Enhance programming and facilities
  • Provide communication tools for volunteer leaders

Friends of Scouting contributions provide approximately 24% of the support the council receives each year. The success of Scouting depends on those who support it. Please help Scouting provide the resources necessary to make sure every youth can benefit from Scouting’s fun, exciting, adventure-filled activities that foster character, honesty, respect, and life-long values. Your generous tax-deductible gift to the Boy Scouts of America provides direct funding for educational initiatives and active learning that program fees alone do not cover – is a statement about your belief in Scouting, our programs, and our properties; and in our belief in educating the entire mind of the young people.

If you need to turn in your pledge card (or if you need a pledge card), contact FOS@pack1999.org .
