In recognition of our Scouts awesome performance with the Flag Retirement Ceremony our Den will be present with a special streamer for the Den Flag before the entire Saddleback District at the Monthly Roundtable.  This is also an exciting opportunity for Akelas to obtain information on exciting District wide events and wonderful volunteer opportunities.  We will meet for 30 minutes before the opening ceremony to review the final requirements for each Scout Wolf Badge at Blue & Gold.

(Please note that our first Den Meeting at the Norman Center is being postponed again – now March due to construction at the facility.)

In an effort to introduce our Scouts to BSA High Adventure we will be hiking to an historical cave area of Orange County.  These caves were the location where Mr. Flores (Rob) hid in after holding up Wells Fargo wagons that traveled from San Diego to Los Angeles in the 19th century.  The cave still bears the markings of Flores' presence: the darkened roof from his campfires and the holes from pegs drilled into the walls to hang his loot.  Warning:  Leave valuables at home!


This hike is a short 4-5 Miles; however Scouts should pack trail snacks and water.  Path is mostly flat and paved to the caves.  Scouts MUST have their Annual Personal Health and Medical Record on file.



Saturday, February 16, 2007 (1:00 - 4:00P) FREE for Scouts; $4 Kids & $6 Adults

Dana Point Marina Reserve Sea Cave Exploration, Ocean Institute

24200 Dana Point Harbor Dr. Dana Point


Special thanks to Mr. Fatigate for making these reservations and putting this event together.  Our Den will pay for one Scout and one Akela for the event.  Please respond if you will be attending by February 11 so we can purchase tickets.  Scouts will enjoy a hike along tide pools while identifying various sea life.  This is also a Leave No Trace Conservation Project as Scouts will practice Outdoor Ethics and participate in a conservation activity.


Invite a Friend Event – Do you have a friend or know someone interested in joining Cub Scouts?  Please feel free to invite them on this Sc-Outing.  When responding (R.S.V.P.), please let me know if you will be bringing a friend.



Sunday, February 24, 2007 (11:00A - 2:00P) FREE for Scouts & Families

Blue & Gold Celebration, Canyon Crest Clubhouse

22300 Canyon Crest Drive, Mission Viejo (Gate Access – Mention Pack 766)


How can I put this in one email?  This is the annual event where Scouts will come together and celebrate the founding of Scouting.  This year our theme is Chinese New Year.  In order to celebrate this event Scouts are invited to participate in the Man Made Cake Competition.  Anyone have a cardboard box for the oven?  We hope you can make it to this event as we will be celebrating the graduation of Webelos II and honoring our own Scouts that have achieved their Wolf Badge (see Den Meeting above).  Over the last few pack meetings our Den has invited all the Scouts on stage together during the awards and this will be the first meeting where this practice will be extended to the entire pack.  We ask that all Scouts hold their appreciation applause until after all awards have been presented to all the Scouts in each Den.



Other 1st Quarter 2008 Events


If you have an interest in planning and want to make a difference in the program for your Scout and others in the program, please consider volunteering some time to help coordinate future events.  If you are interested, please talk with me and I would be happy to set some time aside to help you get started as a volunteer within our Den and/or Pack.  This program is 100% Volunteerism!


March 8 (9:30 – 11:30A) – Laser Quest for Knowledge, FREE for Scouts


March 28 – March 30 (All Day) Spring Pack Camp – FULL!  Waiting List reservations are being accepted.  Space is limited to the first 50 Campers.** (Cost: $5/pp to cover the cost of food)  We have overbooked the event; however, Scouts & Families are encourage to still submit their reservations (reply email) so we can make final arraignments as needed.  Ol McDonald had a farm!



Submit your Ideas and Make a Difference!


Please tell us a couple things that you want to do (Outings) and help us make this program the best for our Scouts.  Please email me with ideas on events that can help build our program and aid in developing character in our kids.  We are putting together a Planning Committee and your input will help guide our Den in 2008.
