Whew. Day one down. Congrats Cobb County School Parents. You survived.
As I said in my last email, we truly hope everyone had a fantastic fun, safe summer.
It was a pleasure to see some familiar faces at the Due West Meet and Greet and I look forward to working with each of the new families Todd and I had the chance to meet. This is a SUPER LONG email. Apologies in advance.
With the kiddos back in school, we wanted to Do Our Best and get the scouting year kicked off right.
BLAST OFF – 2015!!
Saturday, August 15th at 9:30am – Water Rockets on the green space at the Church.
Just a reminder that our next Pack meeting will be held Saturday, August 15th at 9:30am. We’ll meet on the Due West UMC soccer fields to shoot off water rockets. All Scouts and siblings are all welcome to build their own rocket and participate. Please have the boys wear their Class B shirts. If they don’t have one, or have outgrown theirs, we will be taking orders for new shirts. These will be a nominal cost for returning scouts (being assessed now) and included in your dues for new scouts.
Please bring a friend that may be interested in scouting with you. We would like to use this as a recruiting event as well. Know a first grader in the ‘hood that would love to construct a water rocket? Help them out and bring them along!
Kelly has attached some links below to help you with your water rocket construction.
You can also Google water rockets for Scouts as there are many sites that provide construction tips. The water rockets can but are not required to have parachute systems. Also remember that the bottom 2-liter cannot be punctured in any way, or it will not hold pressure and fail on the launch pad. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Additionally, the United Methodist’s Men’s Group will be serving BBQ in the Family Life Center (gym), so people are welcome to purchase lunch the same day. I am unsure of the pricing etc, but I’m sure its nothing a few $20s wont handle.
Please note, dues for the 2015 – 2016 scouting year are $120 for new and returning scouts and a discounted rate of $85 for our Weblos II scouts. If you are able, please bring your dues with you to the Pack Meeting. Checks to Cub Scout Pack 540.
If you have a new scout registration form, please bring it. If you don’t I will have copies at the Pack Meeting on the 15th for you!
Popcorn sales information

As always, please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing you all soon.
