Save this Saturday's Cub Team Training Class!! Sign up now ... or it will have to be cancelled

Posted on Aug 19 2014 - 4:26pm

Yeah, the Cub Leader Training on August 23 in Jonesboro is an excellent opportunity for Packs ... but as of Tuesday, we only have one person signed up, and the deal is that we need signups BY MIDNIGHT on the Wednesday before to be sure we have enough participants.  As noted in the On Line Survey the Instructor needs 10 firm participants to do this class, because it is a day of set-up, teaching, and take-down, and his spouse and family are already sort of upset about the time doing Scouting stuff, but can (sometimes) understand if there are lots of people attending the event.  So ... sign up today or by midnight on Wednesday August 20 in the On Line Survey  to save the Cub Team Training Class.  Between the more than 50% of existing leaders who are not yet shown as Trained, and the new leaders and parents you're already lining up at school, in churches and neighborhoods, there are lots of people who can do this .... So bring the parents you're recruiting in advance of Sign Up Nights ... that will help you get your Pack off to a good start and help your Sign Up Night.  Bring your parents and leaders from last year.  Bring yourself.  But sign up in the On Line Survey to Save this Saturday's Cub Team Training Class!!

Want More Youth in your Unit? More Parents in your Pack? Act Now, and at Buzz Ups and Sign Up Nights ....

Posted on Aug 19 2014 - 10:05am

you want more families and leaders look for school “Buzz Ups” and “Sign Up Nights” ... they are being scheduled at schools and posted on the Calendar and in this Pack by Pack list on our Recruiting Tools page (if you need the Login Username and Password, email the Webmaster.  "Buzz Ups" are during the school day, and Brandon and Daniel would love to have actual Pack leaders and Parents assist.  And they will need to know from you about what your Pack plans to do … so email them or call Brandon or Daniel so they know what your Pack doing ... Be sure to show up big time in big numbers with big plans on Sign Up Night -- the more leaders and parents who can attend, the better so that you can take in new families.  Remember: Sign Up Night is not when you "start" to recruit -- you can and should recruit right now, in many ways.  See our Recruiting Tools page for a way that is easy for you.
