Pack Night - Monday, September 21st

posted Sep 18, 2015, 8:36 PM by Joe Sievers
Here are some things to note for Pack Night:

1.)  West Point - Tickets for the November 14th Tulane/Army football game and tour can be purchased that night for $25 a ticket with no limit on the number of tickets you can purchase.  Anyone who purchases a ticket can go on the tour so siblings, friends and family are all welcome.  The tickets deadline is September 30th and can be purchased through Lori Walsh (loriawalsh@optonline.net).
2.)  Uniforms -  With this being the first meeting of the year it is mandatory for existing scouts to be in uniform.  The Tiger Cubs or any other new scouts will be given a grace period.  That being said, if your scout does not have the appropriate slide, hat and neckerchief for this year it is okay.  Just make sure it is done by your first den meeting.
3.)  New Program -  For 2015-16 there is an entirely new program including a new themes for every Pack Night AND a new Scout Oath which we will be going over at Pack Night.  The Scout Oath is similar with some slight changes. 
4.)  Popcorn -  We will be rolling out the popcorn fundraiser including new prizes won with raffle tickets that all scouts can earn.

Here are calendar updates:

1.)  Halloween Party -  As of today it is scheduled for Friday, October 23rd but I have been informed that this is Zingo night for the Indian Hollow students.  We are going to do our best to re-schedule for a different date which most likely will be either the day before or the day after.  There is also an outside possibility that it will be the following Thursday or Friday.  We will have a definitive date by October 5th when we can make the reservation at Old Bethpage Restoration.
2.)  The Intrepid Sleepover - I know this is very far off but I wanted to make sure that everyone updates their calendars.  The new date for this is Saturday, March 13th to Sunday, March 14th.

Remember, our kickoff event will be Sunday, September 27th 6:30pm for outdoor movie night where the entire family is welcome.  We will be showing E.T.
Last but DEFINITELY not least, I have some good news for this upcoming year!  Included in your registration fees will be new Pack 329 T Shirts for ALL Scouts and leaders!  But wait, that's not all!  Additionally, with the new program making it necessary for all scouts to purchase new handbooks for their respective levels, the Pack will also be purchasing handbooks for ALL Scouts for this year!  If you have already purchased a handbook then you can return it to the Scout Store for a refund.  There will be no out of pocket cost for either the T Shirts or handbook as they are included in the registration fees.
