November Newsletter

November Pack Meeting - The next Pack Meeting will be on Wednesday, November 18th in the JLES All-Purpose Room. This is the always exciting Raingutter Regatta. Admiral Sievers assures us good weather. The meeting will start promptly at 7:15PM. The Webelos I are responsible for set-up so please arrive by 7PM. The Tigers will lead the opening and closing ceremonies - your Den Leader will practice this with you. Webelos II are responsible for clean up.

Also, Admiral Sievers will be putting together a couple of practice times - stand by for word, including specific time and date.

Parent Volunteers - Thanks to all the parents who have signed up for volunteer roles; if you haven't done so please do, and let Eric ( know if you have an idea but don't see anything that looks like it will fit the bill, or if you have any questions about what's involved. You can find the link at In particular, we're still looking for a few more signups for the Pinewood Derby, and for Camping Chairs, and if anyone would be willing to sign up to assist Tim on Raingutter Regatta this month, that would be appreciated as well.

Finally, I'll note that some of our key leaders are going to be with us for the last time this year, as their sons are aging out. As a result, we'll have a number of positions we'll need to fill next year, so this year could be a great time to take an assisting role to learn the ropes:

If you're interested in doing something that doesn't appear there, or if you see something you want to help with that is full, please contact Eric Victory at

Scouting for Food - Our annual Scouting for Food drive is coming up this month. As always, this is a great chance to help the less fortunate in our county. We're dropping off bags on Saturday November 7 and picking them up on Saturday November 14. Your Scout's den leaders will give you exact dates and times to meet for this, and Steve Meyer ( is coordinating the event overall if you have any questions - Steve has already sent an initial email to each den.

Popcorn Sales - Popcorn sale forms were due back to Chris Steele by November 2; drop in the box at Chris's house - 12605 War Admiral Way. Questions can be addressed to Chris Steele, the Popcorn Commander, at or

Popcorn pickup will be at the Steele's (12605 War Admiral Way) on Saturday, November 21, 10 am-2 pm, and all money is due in to Chris by December 6. Questions can be addressed to Chris at or or 301.797.1966.

Pack 436 T-Shirts - Pack 436 will be ordering pack T-shirts for all registered scouts (who have paid their annual dues). In addition, siblings and parents will have the opportunity to purchase additional shirts with the same colors and logos as the scout T-shirts. One T-shirt per scout will be covered by the pack. The order form will be coming shortly. Please complete this and give it to your Den Leader. Include a check made out to "Pack 436" to cover any shirts beyond the one scout T-shirt (price will be indicated in the order form). For additional information, see the order form or contact Lauren Lunenfeld at

Space derby, anyone? Earlier this year, at our Blue & Gold banquet, we held a Space Derby competition. The boys seemed to like it, so we're thinking about making it a permanent event at one of our monthly Pack meetings. However, if we're going to be able to do that, we'll need 2-3 parents who would be able and willing to obtain and put together the rig (the Pack will reimburse the purchase cost). If you're interested, please contact Eric or Gerard.

Pack Hike, Camping - Thanks to Doug Bell for organizing our first Pack Hike of the year - a great trip through a part of the Great Seneca Trail that's close to home but felt like we were out in the wild. Also, we had a great fall campout - an excellent introduction for many of our new Tigers!
