This year lunch will not be sold and we recommend that you go to eat lunch after you check-in and before the race starts.  You can bring lunch to eat in the outside picnic area.

For those individuals that like to wait in the long lines which happen at the end of check-in (11:15-11:46am),  the church has blue tape marking off 6ft intervals when you enter so you can social distance. 

We need volunteers - especially for the pit area during the race and people to transport the cars during check in. Please see Mark if you would like to volunteer.

Pinewood Derby Rules

Posted on Jan 15 2021 - 7:26am

Please see attached for the full list of pinewood derby rules that our pack follows*. 

The 3 Key rules that must be followed:

1) All cars must be less then or equal to 5oz.

2) All cars must meet length, width, height requirements.  Pay close attention bottom clearance of 3/8in where we run into issues each year. 

3) BSA axles, BSA wheels, and BSA body wood from the BSA kit must be used to be eligible for scout trophies.   If there were any substitutions, please inform the check in person and you/your scout can still race in the "open/adult" division but just not be eligible for trophies.  We give 1st-3rd place metals in the open/adult division instead of trophies.     

*Please note -  Over the years people have submitted part modifications and since we do not want to turn anyone away we have allowed them to still race in the open/adult division as long as they meet weight and dimension requirements.  

 

Pinewood Derby Rules attached and are at the following link:

Posted on Dec 1 2020 - 6:53am

The Pack 1999 Fall campout 2020 is our annual event to introduce the new scouts in the pack to family camping and the returning scouts to work on their rank requirements while having an evening of bonding and fun that keep them motivated to continue their scouting journey.

Families will arrive on Friday, December 4th and setup their assigned activity in order to be prepared to start den activities on Saturday morning, December 5th. Families are also expected to arrive on Saturday morning and the campout will officially ends on Sunday Dec 6th after the scouts on service and leave no trace clean up. Scouts have the option to camp overnight with their den either on Friday night or Saturday.

During the campout, we will need to be safety conscious and follow our standard Scouting safety procedures as always. This guideline also contains the safety measures we will employ to adhere to social distancing and other COVID-19 safety measures, including check-in screening and cleaning procedures.

Scouting Fees are Now DUE for the 2021 Scouting Year

Posted on Nov 16 2020 - 8:52am

Dear parents and Scouts,

If you have not yet paid the 2021 scouting fee of $120 please do so as soon as possible. The recharter for the Pack to BSA is due on 12/1 so payment to the pack is due no later than 11/20 to enable the paper work to be completed.

Many scouts “earned their way” partially or completely in 2020, from coupon books and popcorn sales. This is a great way to support the district, the council and the pack. Attached please find the list of dues per scout after deduction of “Earn your way in scouting”. Scouts that are not listed did not earn a deduction. And the recharter form which should be filled out, especially if your address or other contact information has changed. Only one form per family please

Payment is preferred at the pack meeting on 11/19 at Hassler, or on (or before) 11/20 via PayPal paypal@pack1999.org, and remember to pay as a friend to avoid the pack paying 3% in fees.

Alternatively if you do not use Paypal and cannot make it to the pack meeting/drop off at the address on the form, you can venmo the dues to @Viji-Siddharth (confirmation# 9804). Please include your scout(s) name and rank.  

If you do not make payment by 11/20 then you may have to re-register in 2021 with BSA and pay the dues then. Scouts that are not registered cannot earn advancement and rank.

If you have any question please do not hesitate to send them to commchair@pack1999.org or cubmaster@pack1999.org.

Thank you!

Pack 1999 Leadership
