FW: Carden Sunday information, please email info to your dens

Here are some notes relating to this Sunday.  I would like to ask if all the Akelas are ok if I distribute by private email (not a Blog posting email) everyone’s phone number so I can help get a phone tree established as I will be making calls to everyone tonight and if we can help set up a phone tree in the future it will help ensure everyone is aware of the changes.  TGIF!

Subject: Carden Sunday informaton, please email info to your dens


Dear Leaders:


Please send out an email to your dens advising them of the change of location for this Sunday Pinewood Derby. Please use the following information as you see fit.


OK, we spoke to Mrs De Ailla this evening and have made arrangements to use the grounds of Carden. Carden has a nice protected area to shelter us from any rain. It may not rain at all, fingers crossed.


24741 Chrisanta Dr
Mission Viejo, CA 92691


Also we have secured access to the indoor bathrooms.


Some notes;


a)       The park and play area are out of bounds due to the rain. I assured the school we would not go into these areas

b)       Access to the bathrooms is granted provided we escort any children. Access to the other areas inside the school are forbidden.

c)       We need folks to bring chairs and also any fold up tables they may have.

d)       Wear warm clothes and have fun.


VERY IMPORTANT: Please ask your den for any cancellations so we can modify the chicken order accordingly, otherwise we will be swimming in chicken.


We have also made arrangements to have the parking gates opened early so we can set up the track, etc.


Please note that we can park in the marked parking spaces at the school lot (limited space) or on the street. If the street is full we can use the Starbucks parking lot just down the street. Please do not use the church parking lots.


Alan, thanks for getting the cub scout insurance all set up.


Mark and Tom, I will meet you at the time you designate so we can set everything in motion.


Any issues please call me

Importance of a Whistle

This weekend at Oso Lake I gave the Scouts a whistle, light stick and a bottle of water prior to their hike and instructed them on the importance of each item during an outing.  This morning I got up to the alarm and the news of an Alberta Man who over the weekend became trapped in the wilderness.  And as Mr. Hansen (Richard) shared with us in the morning about the -40C (-40F) he endured in the Canadian Wilderness I was reminded of our weekend in a much warmer environment, but where a simple item can be used for survival.  What I heard next I want to share with our group.


Surrounded by a pack of coyotes “the only thing keeping them from attacking was a whistle he blew constantly”.  As trivial as a whistle may be it became a lifesaver during this man’s 96 hour ordeal in wilderness.  Please take time to share this real-life story that happened over the same weekend as our campout with your Scout.

Oso Lake Wrap-Up & Pinewood Derby is next weekend....!

From planning and fixing their own breakfast at Camp to surviving the Valley Forge Cub Winter, I want to thank all of you for giving these Scouts the opportunity to grow in so many ways. The biggest growth was watching the Scouts perform their "own" opening and closing ceremony earlier this morning.


These kids learned a lot about our Country and Flag as well as basic items they can do for survival and be safe while camping and hiking. Save those Bamboo Fishing poles for a possible quick get fishing morning sometime soon. Please encourage your Scout to always carry his whistle when hiking along with water.


We had wonderful campfire songs and special thanks to Mr. Hansen for wonderful dinner, Mr. Simpson for managing the campfire and Mr. Clem for Espressos and leading our Scouts on various hikes. Oh we cannot forget Mr. Fatigate for keeping the campfire going all night and Pancakes! Thanks to Mrs. Schumann for eggs and the entire Camp for helping make wonderful Cornbread from a Box Oven. We did not even burn the bottom! Mrs. Nodar for ensuring we had two (2) adults on shore while canoeing and Mrs. Sartoris for encouraging our little guys (Miss Rhea and Master Trevor) in preserving to their best while at camp.


It was a wonderful time!


During this weekend we finished up our Flag requirements in the Wolf Handbook along with working on items in Your Living World (liter), Cooking and Eating (outdoor meal & fixing breakfast), Family Fun (hike around lake) and of course duty to God with morning reverence. In the electives we made bamboo fishing poles, played camp bingo, helping with camp (Party), three cub songs, finding birds and listing them (bingo), fishing, bait and rules. Oh we cannot forget the wonderful team building fun of archery, sling shots, BB guns and canoeing.


Last but not least - Let's Go Camping!


Our Den Meeting in February will cover our last achievement before obtaining our Wolf Badge and that is “Making Choices”. Please remember to let me know when you are working on activities in the Wolf Handbook so I can update the records. Every achievement requires the Scouts to do something with the information that is introduced at the den meeting and covered more in-depth in the Wolf Handbook.


Congratulations to all the Scouts that made it through the night and earned a very special "White" moonlight bead for surviving a winter campout at below freezing -1C (30F).


Everything aside I want to give a special thanks to all the parents for being part of this wonderful program and making a difference to our Scouts. Like everyone at the camp this weekend we are all volunteers and are making a difference everyday in the overall development of our Scouts.


See you all at Pinewood Derby! (Let me know if you need to borrow the coping saw or other items to build your car as we are looking for 100% Den Participation) Below is a forwarded email from our Pack covering some additional information for this upcoming event next weekend.


Good Night, Good Fun and Good Warmth Tonight

Howling Campout - Final Program

Attached is the final program for this weekend I will have Kinkos print off some copies tonight.  The times and locations may change as needed based on volunteer availability and facility availability.  The most important thing is for all the Scouts to have fun.  I will be asking Akelas to volunteer in various activities in order to help ensure the program runs with full participation from everyone.  I have asked Don to help with the Hike around the Lake so I can help get us ready for the Campfire Safety and Building Session as well as get the Evening Award Ceremony ready.


Mr. Puchalski will be accompanying us for some Campfire Songs, Skits and Fun on Saturday Night.


Coming to Oso Lake you will pass the 241 and make the first left and drive slowly down into the Camp.  Once in the Campgrounds, please be extra alert for kids.  As you enter you will come to a “T” intersection and you will make a left and locate our Campsite.  We are attempting to secure “Camp Rotary” as it was recommended by the Campmaster on our visit there earlier this week.


Once you arrive and check-in you will be given a Bingo Card, along with the Program Schedule to help you in having fun locating things around camp and meet other people.  Once completed you will turn in the card to obtain a lanyard, light stick and whistle for your Scout.  We ask that each Scout wear these items while at camp and that each Akela help reinforce the importance of the “Buddy System” while at camp.


We will have some Cereals available in the morning for everyone as they arrive.  We will try to have the eggs ready by 8:15 for the group.  Don had suggested other hot items and if anyone wants to bring some items for the group and try there hands at cooking you are welcome.


One of the core values of Cub Scouting is faith and having inner strength and confidence based on our trust in God.  We ask that families help instill this into their Scouts.  Please also remember to mark your calendar for Scout Sunday on February 3 and Scout Sabbath on February 9.  Scouts should wear their uniform to services on these dates or during the week of February to their appropriate service.


At the Opening Ceremony the Scouts will practice flag ceremony and learn some history our flag.  The flag that was flown over the US Capital will be flown over Oso Lake during the weekend.  The Scouts will be have some “out of there seat” actions to get them ready for the day.


We are picking up a case of water bottles; however, you are welcome to bring additional drinks, if desired.  Remember this is our (Den 6) event and we want to make it the best for our kids.


After the Opening Ceremony we will head over to the Staging area for BB Guns, Archery and Sling Shots.  You will be asked to sign a form when you arrive at camp about the possibility of the BB Gun becoming a loaned item if it is not returned and as such certain California Laws have to be acknowledged.


Safety Afloat Class – Must be taken online ...   Please take some time to review the course and guidelines.  We are required to have 1:5 Scouts and at least two (2) adults trainined.  Currently that is Don and I; however, I would like to ask others to take the training.  Please email me the link or bring a copy of the certificate of completion so we can present it to the Campmaster, if needed.  The course takes about 15 minutes to complete.


Following the Canoes we will head over to have a picnic lunch.  Pack a good lunch!  During lunch we will have marbles available for the Scouts.


Following Lunch we will build Bamboo Poles and practicing dry casting.  Oso Lake is a catch and release lake.  Those wishing to practice casting into the water are welcome to with their Akelas and will earn a belt loop for their efforts.


Akelas will have fun over the next hour hiking around the lake.  Those Scouts carrying their fishing poles will find spots to practice casting.  The hike is a mile and a half and should take about 30 minutes to complete and an hour is allocated to give ample opportunities for fishing.


Arriving back to camp we will help the Scouts build a campfire and learn about fire safety.  Once the awards are completed we will have our evening ceremony and release the Scouts for free time.


We ask the Akelas to return to camp at 6P to begin our evening Campfire Program.


I am getting excited!  Look forward to seeing you there...


Oh there is a surprise for the campfire J

RE: Boy Scouts - Feb 4 Meeting Relocation!!

I want to thank you Barb for the updated information regarding the current and ongoing construction at the Norman Center.  I read this in the paper the other day about the delay and was not for sure if we would have to make alternate arrangements.


We will work on securing an alternate location for February.  Please keep me posted as conditions progress over the next few weeks so we can make changes in March, if needed.

Look forward to seeing you at camp.

Den Meeting - Monday

It is time for our Monthly Den Meeting where we get together and introduce new achievements for the month and verify past achievements were completed. Please bring the forms handed out at the Home Deport Outing or use our new online achievement tracking though Google.

Supplies needed for each Scout

Full Scout Uniform with proper insignia and devices

Pinewood Derby Car Kit**

Protective Eye Wear

Wolf Handbook

Scout Spirit

** Kits were distributed to each Scout at the Pack Meeting in December. If you did not receive the Kit, please let me know.

This meeting we will be using power tools (jigsaw and belt-sander) and coping saws to help each Scout build their Pinewood Derby Car. Orange County Council Boy Scouts of America has granted a Permit for this meeting on the condition that each Scout is accompanied by their Akela and wears “protective eye wear” when using the power tools. We will have a “universal” pair of protective eye wear and only encourage each Scout to secure their own if they have special needs or sensitive to latex, certain plastics or elastic.

However not specifically limited by Council I am personally extending the condition of our permit to mean that Scouts without their Akela will NOT be allowed to handle the power or manual tools. This is for their safety and protection and I apologize for any problems this might cause to parents.

Our Scout and Community of Mission Viejo Character Quality this month is Perseverance. This core value is about sticking with something and not giving up, even if it is difficult. Enter competitions can be very stressful for Scouts and those that stick to the task and do not give up show strong character qualities of perseverance. Additional information will be available at the Den Meeting regarding this very important quality. As the parents know it is my personal goal for 2008 to introduce the Scouts to all 12 core values through the tree aims of Scouts (citizenship training, character development and fitness).

Our meeting on Monday will be held at the Mr. & Mrs. Prosser’s Residence at 6:30P in Mission Viejo.

22132 Wayside, Mission Viejo, CA (Click here for Map and Directions)

Our Denner for January is Master Toby.

On a side note, I am making efforts to fully recover for a recent bug and Mr. Clem will be the Den Leader in charge at the meeting. I might be at the meeting; however, I am not sure how well my health will be tomorrow evening as everything seems to get worse towards the end of the day. I am very happy that our group can continue without interruptions and just ask for everyone’s prayers and support during this time.

Online Achievements & Interactive Calendar

Google is slowly become the single resource for content management. Google has virtually everything from online calendars to shared online spreadsheets. We are currently using the Google Blog’ (Blogspot) to help maintain a running record of communications and it is with great pleasure that I announce we now offer two (2) new extensions of Google for our Den.

The first is an interactive Den Calendar of currently planned meetings, outings, activities and so forth. These were recently updated at our recent planning meeting last week. These are separate from pack, district, council, regional, national activities. These calendars are part of their program. The Pack Calendar can be found at

The next exciting tool I would like to introduce is Google Docs that will enable us to maintain an updated mutual record of each Scout. These are privately shared and are not publicly viewable.

Both of these tools require the user to obtain a Google Account in order to ensure only the selected individual can view the file(s) and/or information. If you would like to take advantage of these tools, please be sure to sign up for an account as soon as possible (

Within the next few hours you will receive an individual email with a link to the online achievement file. Please take time to review this file and if the file is missing any achievement/sports/academics/electives that your Scout has complete, please place an “X” in the appropriate field and the records will be updated. Of course Akelas can still use the manual print-outs that will be available at Den Meetings to communicate the activities completed by the Scout.

We need these records updated at least two weeks before Blue & Gold in February to help determine the Scouts that will be receiving their Wolf Badge at the February Meeting.
