Scout Fair - April 12 - Reliant Arena: Volunteers Needed!

Posted on Apr 9 2014 - 4:14pm

The details for Scout Fair can be found:  Pack 346 Calendar Link  and SHAC Information Link.  Although I have not attended before, I have heard nothing but excellent stories.  I have also heard to come hungry as many of the SHAC Boy Scout packs will be breaking out the dutch ovens and cooking.  I know Klein United Methodist Troop 878 is planning Rootbeer floats with homemade ice cream and homemade rootbeer!

Pack 346 will be hosting a booth where we will be making American Flag Neckerchief slides.  We need several scouts to come down and spend 45 minutes in the booth.  The current schedule of sign-up is below.  Please email me (campingwilliamsons@gmail.com) and let me know if you can come volunteer and what shift you would like take. Any scout that volunteers will get the Scout Fair portion of the SHAC Century of Service Patch.

The Final Campout - Brazos Bend State Park - all participants, please read

Posted on Mar 24 2014 - 11:10pm

The Final campout of the year is upon us and the weather is looking great!  Get your campfire stories, your best appropriate jokes, and your singing voice tuned up!  Don't forget your hiking boots, your hiking first aid kit and your camelback/canteen, as this park has lots of great hiking opportunites.  There is a ton of wildlife to see in this park, so bring your camera, and some strong bungie cords for your ice chests!

Below are a few reminders:

    1. Entrance fees:  Adults and adolescents 12 and over: $7.00/day.  All children under 12 are free. The campsite fees are covered by the pack.
    2. Please setup in our designated campsites only.  This will be STRONGLY enforced by park personnel; if you are setup in the wrong site, they will make you move, or move your stuff for you.  If you are not sure where to setup, or if your site of preference is allowable, please see Paul Vanderkin.
    3. Medical forms will need to be filled out and turned in for every participant.  If you do not have one on file, the form is listed in the link on the left.  Please fill it out and get it to myself, Paul or Niki Acosta before Thursday afternoon.
    4. YPT training must be completed by all adult participants prior to camping.  If you have not already completed this training, please do so prior to Thursday afternoon.  Upon completion, print out a copy of the certificate and send it to Niki Acosta.  The YPT training class is online at: myscouting.org
    5. Scouts participating in pack activities will need to have a designated adult partner present during the activity.  Those that do not have a prearranged adult partner will not be allowed to participate.  This is especially important for activities taking place away from our campsites.
    6. The Menu for Saturday dinner has changed to Pork & Beef Fajitas (plus all the xtras) & Hot Dogs for kids, the pack will charge $5.00/person.  Please have correct change.
    7. For any scout that decides to visit the George Observatory, the $5 entry fee will be paid by the pack.  Each Family will need to purchase tickets when they enter the park as we are not able to purchase group tickets.  See Paul Sunday AM with your scouts Observatory ticket and he will give you $5 to cover the cost of your scout.
    8. Please do not bring the following: Pets, Skateboards/Scooters, liquid fuel stoves/lanterns, alcohol, computers/electronic games.
    9. Lastly, due to some past problems (all minor to date), I need to remind everyone of our policy regarding safety, disruption and physical/verbal assualt:  If it is determined that any scout or scouting event participant has/is endangering another scout/participant either physically, verbally or through indirect action, that participant will be asked to leave the campout immediately.  This is a zero tolerance policy and will be enforced by the campout coordinator, cubmaster/assistant cubmaster, and/or den leader(s).  Additionally, scouts or participants that are overly disruptive during pack activites will be not be allowed to continue participation in said activity.  Again, it will be up to the leaders mentioned above to determine what is overely disruptive.  However, it will be up to the adult partner of said scout or participant to enforce this discontinuation of participation.
