Important September 2015 Information

posted Sep 8, 2015, 1:37 PM by Joe Sievers
1.)  Registration - There are currently 37 Scouts registered and paid for the 2015-16 year. At the end of 2015 we had 50 scouts so we are well on our way to matching and/or surpassing that number.  If you want to register you can do so by contacting our Treasurer Lori Walsh at  You can also register at Indian Hollow Orientation on Thursday, September 17th (we will be in the lobby) or at our first Pack Night on Monday, September 21st.  You can pay by cash or check (made out to Pack 329) and the amount is $119 for registration and $75 for a refundable popcorn deposit.  Multiple scouts there is a $10 discount per scout and the popcorn deposit is only $100 total.
2.)  First Pack Night - Our first pack night will be on Monday, September 21st 7pm at Burr Intermediate School in the auditorium or possibly at Indian Hollow (once it is confirmed I will send out an email).  There will be some paperwork to fill out, a discussion with the parents about the year, some information about the new program and getting acquainted with the new families.  There will of course be fun for the scouts as well.  If you can, please get to the Scout Store or order online the next level slide, neckerchief and hat for your scouts.  For the new scouts they can come in street clothes for now.
3.)  September Event - On Sunday, September 27th 6:30pm we will be kicking off the new year with a Outdoor Movie Night at Assistant Cub Master Charlie Leo's house, the movie being shown will be E.T.  This will be a nice casual environment for the new scouts and their families to be welcomed into the pack so make it if you can.  This will be weather permitting of course.
4.)  October Event (Mets/Nationals Game at Citi Field) - We will be going to the Mets game on Saturday, October 3rd 7:10pm.  Unfortunately the Scouts do not get to go on the field before the game but they each will get a Mets Scout Patch and it is fleece blanket night.  Tickets will be $50 each in the 300 level section with each ticket also coming with free food coupons for a fountain drink, pretzel or fries and a hot dog or hamburger.  We have a limited number of tickets available so they will be sold on a first come first serve basis.  You can pay for your tickets by contacting our Treasurer Lori Walsh (, at the IH orientation or at the first Pack Night.
5.)  Leaders - We have AT LEAST 2 open spots on our permanent Pack Committee (Advancement Chair and Quartermaster).  Additionally, we will have openings on our seasonal committees (Popcorn, Blue & Gold, Campout and BBQ) and most importantly we need Den Leaders, especially for the Tigers.  If anyone interested in helping out please contact me.  The lifeblood of the pack is the parental participation.
6.)  Leaders Meetings - I will send something separately but our first leaders meeting had to moved to Tuesday, September 15th due to scheduling conflicts.  The location is TBD right now but it will be at 7:30pm.  After the first one all future leaders meetings will be scheduled for the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm.
7.)  Dens - Once we have the final registration list we will send out the den assignments.  Your first den meeting should be in October so please get your books before that time.  Everything is new for 2015-16.
