Blue & Gold - Save the Date! This year's Blue & Gold banquet is scheduled for Saturday March 1, 2014 from 6:00-8:30 pm at JLES in the All Purpose Room.
The Blue and Gold Committee has a fun-filled, exciting and patriotic evening planned for you! There will be games, awards, and some very special guests. This is our big awards banquet for the year where we have a chance to recognize our boys for their rank achievements. We're shooting for all of our Scouts to get their rank awards that night, so if you're not there yet or you have questions about how far you have to go, talk to your den leader.
- Sign-up : If you haven't already done so, please fill out and drop off the attached registration form and leave it with Tara Kavadias at 12825 Talley Lane no later than February 24th.
The Blue and Gold RSVP form is attached.
Finally, note that the Scouting highlight of the evening is awarding the boys their rank awards (Tiger, Wolf, etc.). Your Scout should be well on his way towards completing his award now; if you're not sure where he stands, you can talk to his Den Leader, or always feel free to contact Eric Victory (email@example.com) or Gerard Mulford (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Pinewood Derby - A huge thanks to our Pinewood Derby committee of Paul Joegriner, George Wohlfarth, Srini Ramaswamy, Doug Powe, and John Fischer for running a great Pinewood Derby and congratulations to all the winners and competitors. Also, several people left cars after the race - we'll have those @ the next meetings.
No February Pack Meeting - We will not have a February Pack meeting other than the Pinewood Derby; the next Pack event is Blue & Gold.
Adults / Leaders Meeting - Wednesday February 19 - Gerard and Eric will be holding an adults and leaders meeting to do a mid-year check-in and get prepared for next year. The meeting will be Wednesday, February 19, 7:30-8:30 pm, at Jones Lane ES. We encourage all of our families to have someone there - your input and feedback into how things are going and where we should be headed are crucially important. We'll also be talking about the Pack's budget, and some key positions we'll need to fill starting next year. If you have some thoughts about how you would like to contribute but are unable to attend, please contact Eric or Gerard.
Upcoming Spring Events - We're still working on dates, but we expect to have several fun-filled events coming up, so keep an eye on this newsletter and the Pack website for more details:

Spring Hike - Likely to be held on Sunday afternoon. More details will follow.
Pack Service Project - As with our cleanup of the Jones Lane ES outdoor classroom last year, we'll be doing a service project to thank the school for sponsoring our Pack. Also likely to be on a Sunday afternoon in the spring. Stay tuned for more details.
