    What time do your den meetings start?

    WOW We are WEBELOS 1 and start at 6:30 - 7:30 and I think that is tooo late. Tigers in our pack start at 6 to 7. I know it is hard for the parents to get home on time. Good luck with the time change. I hope it works out for you.

    Religious Emblem

    My son and 1 other scout out of 11 has earned their religious emblem for WEBELOS. I was wondering when you presented this honor to your scouts at a pack meeting what did you say? I'm having a hard time coming up with something for our CubMaster to say. Also we will have our priest present this to them at Mass and not sure what he sould say either. Any suggestions greatly appreciated Thank you.

    Den money question

    Hi first of all I wanted to say how wonderful everyone her is. Thanks for all your help. Here is my question - the comittee decided on a fundraiser selling wreaths in the fall and Munsons candy in the spring. We don't get any money for our dens (which is ok) many dont ask for dues (because they can't predict on how much the need for the year)My question is can each den do their own frundraising so the kids can earn there own way to special events to earn specific badges or something fun they can do for all there hard work, supplies ect. We would pick one more fundraiser that would be optional and if the den wanted to participate the fundraiser chair would keep track of each dens money on who earn what and give it to the treasurer to deposit and they could then once a month or so turn in a sheet with all expences and request the funds. This will teach the kids to earn there own way through scouting. Is there anywhere that says we can not do this type of thing. I cost our troop 60.00 per scout for the events that we have 50 scouts. We have some partents that really want to fund raise and others want everyone else to support there child and do nothing. i'm really hoping this could work out! Any advice greatly appreciated Thanks
  6. How much do troops dontate to there council? Just wondering. I know the popcorn is big but know one in our troop wants to sell it popcorn this yesr. What should we do? If they dont' want to do popcorn we need another fundraiser and donated some money (right). What do you think the average amount should be. Thanks for any input....

    Full uniform at every Den meeting?

    Thank you both for your suggestions. You sound like you both are wonderful den leaders. Our leader and den leaders are not even trained and do not even own any part of a cub scout uniform. It is really sad. I like making slides with the kids my son just made his den the elephant ones in the How to book. They all loved them. We used gray vinyl. Michele where do you get your ideas for slides can you let me know. We will be making the Binoculars ones for Feathered Friends pack meeting.
  8. I'm not the leader or assistant but I plan every activity for the den. I have a question about having your complete uniform on at every den meeting. One mother CC will always say something if the child is not in complete uniform at every meeting. For instants a few den meetings will be painting or whittling (What a mess).(IMO)I don't think the child should have any part of his uniform on and take a chance of ruining it. Plus some kids come right from another activity to our Den meeting and just make it in time. I do agree at the Pack meeting everyone to be dressed and proud. Thanks What is the rule??

    Questions about Electives

    I have questions about the electives section of the Bear Book. The elective has a,b,c,d you have to do all of those to earn 1 elective correct or does A count as 1 b as another? Another question it says you can count acheivements as electives if you DO NOT use them for your badge. So say you have a,b,c,d,e and needed a,b,c to earn the sign off and you did complete d and e do those count as elevtives or does it mean you need to complete a whole nother section that had nothing to do with your badge. I hope this makes since. Thank you
  10. I was wondering if anyone did anything cool for centerpieces or table favors for Cubs in the Future. I wanted to make these cute space people zipper pulls out of beads but I dont know how to fuse them together. http://www.makingfriends.com/perler_space.htm Thank
  11. I am trying to find a site that shows you how to make several different instruments. Our Feb pack meeting is Music /Magic and we wanted to do a song. Thanks
  12. I know this sounds weird. But I dont know what to do for the Bear acheivement 20c fix something with 2 tools. Does anyone a have any idea's that are simple for the boys to do? Thank you
  13. I was wondering if there were any set Pinewood Derby rules that I can get a copy of. I know the rules and specs are in the box. Last race we had child place their car on the track and the parent would come up and make sure it was on straight we said no one can touch the car but the child. Some were very pushy. How should this be done? I would like to see the National rules and maybe go by what thay say? Just a thought. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Some of these parents are out of control with this race. clearly the child did not do any work on some cars. Very sad. We will be meeting with in the next week to set the rules straight. Thank you!

    Need help finding a patch

    Hi our Den went to camp and has been earning the Leave No Trace Behind patch and our Advancement person has looked in the book and has asked our scout store and they don't have it.
