On August 6, Cub Scouts from Pack 678 got together in Seabrook for a fun evening of crabbing. Scouts learned how to crab along the Texas Gulf coast using nothing more than chicken drumsticks and string. They jumped and danced excitedly when they were able to pull one from the water. All the scouts were working on their Summertime Activity Award, which requires attending three summertime events scheduled by Pack 678.
The pack picnic, this past Saturday, July 23rd, was a great success! The scouts enjoyed outdoor activities, such as, cooling off at the splash pad, eating delectable hot dogs, and racing their boats at the 2016 Rain Gutter Regatta. There were winners and absolutely no losers! Fun was had by all.
The next Summer event is CRABBING. It is currently scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 6th. Stay tuned for more details.
Pack 678 is registered for the Bay Elementary location for the 23rd annual Trash Bash. The bash will be held April 2. Check-in will be from 8:30 to 9 am at that location. Lunch will be provided as well as door prizes, souvenirs, and a patch! Please plan to join us to take part in this community service project. More information can be found here.
On Valentine’s Day weekend, 24 scouts from Pack 678 and their families attended the Winter Campout at Bay Area Park. I use the term “winter” lightly since it was in the 70s most of the weekend. Scouts who arrived Friday got to participate in a special night-time “alligator hunt” hike. Then on Saturday scouts got to work on their outdoor activity requirements toward rank advancement, the reason they were at the campout. After lunch, the whole Pack got involved in an epic game of Capture the Flag. Then it was time for geocaching and outdoor crafts. After a hearty silver turtle/foil dinner that was capped off by Dutch-oven cobbler, Cubmaster Doug Carey led the pack in the campfire program. Scouts brought skits and jokes while troop leaders brought cheers and games. It was a great weekend for getting outdoors and doing some “backyard camping.”
Did you miss out on our last opportunity to participate in a Pack Show & Sell, at Sam’s Club this past Saturday? You’re in luck! You’ve got another opportunity to get in on the action. The Pack has negotiated a spot at the Macaroni Kids Fall Festival, at League Park. Sign-up for slots will be this Monday (5 Oct) at the Church during Den meetings.
