  1. We are thinking of having a raingutter regatta this summer. Is it possible to build the boats (maybe using Super Glue) and run the races on the same day?
  2. One of my concerns was that our "new" treasurer would lose interest as we were (patiently) waiting for the person stepping out of the office to wrap things up and turn it over...that took WAY longer than it should have. Fortunately, she's still enthusiastic.
  3. So far, the meetings are productive. Most leaders attend, we discuss ideas, come up with plans and people volunteer to get things done. The main issue is that we have had virtually no communication about finances from the outgoing treasurer for about 2 months...that situation is finally resolved though. I posted elsewhere in the forum that we have some "late-paying" parents (issue I inherited) as far as dues go...new treasurer and I get the job of pressing them to pay, if they can pay. Their scouts have already been rechartered for the year.
  4. I think the pack leadership should attempt to help parents if paying for dues, etc., is a burden. But the parents need to say something in advance if there's a problem. I have not seen the "who owes for what" list yet, so have no idea at this point if ability to pay is an issue. I think the new treasurer will try sending friendly reminder letters/emails to the parents who have not paid and see what happens.
  5. Two months ago I became pack committee chair. The treasurer also is new and for various reasons, just received financial records, etc., related to the prior year. We both are now on the pack's bank account. We have just learned that several parents still owe dues for scouts that were re-chartered in January...various other monies are also owed by parents for supplies, popcorn, etc. as well. Most amounts are small(several owe $15 - $30 for T-shirts, for example) but one family owes nearly $200 for popcorn. I'm sure we'll never see the popcorn money, as the scout has stopped attending meetings a
  6. I recently became pack committee chair for my son's pack. We have an active group of parents/leaders who are very dedicated but there are a few things that could run smoother. I'm here to get tips and ideas from others with more experience.
