New Cub Scout Adventure Plans for Bobcats and Early Den Meetings ...

Posted on Aug 23 2016 - 11:11am

An oversight of the Cub Scout Adventure Plans and Den Leader Guides is ... there's no meeting plans centered on learning and earning the "Bobcat" rank ... and so nothing to focus on the new dens forming with lots of new Cub Scouts and new Den Leaders.  To fix that, our Cub Scout Adventure Plans section has a new page called "Getting Started Tips: Plans for First Meetings + Bobcat".  Attached there are two Bobcat/First Meeting Adventure Plans to give you some easy "getting a Den going" plans to launch the start of your Cub Scout year and earn the Bobcat rank in a meeting or two.  These can be used both for dens that need almost all Scouts to earn Bobcat, and for dens welcoming just a few new Scouts (but with a refresher for all of the Scouts).  Feel free to do these as part of "family fun events" on weekends.  Do these first, then dive into the full Rank by Rank Adventure Plans

Reminder: if you don't have enough Den Leaders, engaged and ready to go, leading dens of about 8 Scouts of the same age (not more than 10)please do not attempt to have Den Meetings for those Dens!!!! Instead, do Easy Fun Family Pack Activities, not Den Meetings, until those Dens have enough engaged leaders for Den Meetings.

Some of you may have known Cody Ballard, Sr., former Cubmaster of Pack 1030 and father to one of our District’s Boy Scouts.   We are sorry to report to you that he passed away last Wednesday.  Margarita Perez, a former leader in Pack 1030, wrote on Facebook “I was blessed to have the known Cody Ballard. He had a beautiful spirit, a kind heart and was always giving of himself and his time. I will always treasure our friendship and our time with Cub Scout Pack 1030. Rest in peace, my friend.” 

Cub Scout Pack 1030 has posted at https://www.facebook.com/pack1030/ this note: “We are saddened by the loss of one of our past Cub Masters and longtime friend of Pack 1030, Cody Ballard. Cody passed away on Wednesday. Even though Cody finished his great tenure as Cub Master a few years ago he still came back every year to help all of the boys get their pinewood derby cars ready. He loved Scouts, loved our Pack, and was always willing to help. We will miss him. Our Pack Leaders met last night and we decided to name our annual Pinewood Derby Race after Cody to honor him. We are also taking up a collection to give to a Scout-related charity in his name. If you would like to give please paypal to scoutpack1030@gmail.com and make sure you note that it is for the "Cody Ballard Fund" or you can bring drop it by our Scout Registration and Parent Info Meeting on Aug 29 @ 6PM at TMSA. R.I.P. Cody.”

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Ballard family and
