100 Books Every Boy Should Read


Boy's Life Magazine prepared a list of 100 books every boy should read.  While there are a few notables that (in my opinion) are missing from this list (I love books), it's definitely a great place to start building an awesome library for your young reader.  Never stop reading to your kids!

You can download the full list here.

Cubanapolis 500

January's Pack meeting is one you won't want to miss -- our annual Cubanapolis!

Just what is an Cubanapolis?  I'm glad you asked!  A Cubanapolis is a fun family event where the boys, prior to race day (and with their parent’s assistance) make a cardboard race car that they can wear and run with. Boxes were passed out at the December Christmas party. If you weren't able to make it, please get with your den leader ASAP to get your box!

The emphasis on this event is family fun and participation!  

We will, however, have some type of recognition for various categories for the construction and design of the cars -- so be creative!

Please make arrangements to pick up your cardboard box from your den leader if you did not get it at the December Pack meeting. YOU NEED THIS in order to make your car!

Car Making Rules:

  • Body of car must be constructed of cardboard. Tape, tinfoil, paint, construction paper, stickers and paper plates can also be used for decoration.
  • Use the box provided by the Pack.  It should fit around your son without being either too snug or too loose.
  • No metal or glass materials may be used.
  • No items can be hanging or dragging behind a car
  • For safety reasons, cars should not have a ‘windshield’

Race Procedures:
  • Each race will consist of 4 laps
  • Each racer will need an adult present to be their pit crew

Each racer should bring 4 things with them on race day
  1. Goggles or glasses or a swimming mask
  2. A small towel or washcloth
  3. A helmet (bike or ski helmet)
  4. Gym-appropriate LACE up tennis shoes WITH socks.
Reminders will be sent out closer to race day. A couple of extras will be available, but certainly not enough for everyone. We will cover more of what the race entails the night of the race.  

For our annual Cubanopolis to be a success, we want to remind our scouts that what is important is that they do their best, play by the rules, show good sportsmanship, and have fun.

The Cub will decorate the box to look like a race car (or a space ship, garbage truck, or any vehicle he wants. Construction paper, paint, tape, aluminum foil and markers are all great things to have on hand to spur creativity. Colored paper plates make great wheels. Be sure no dangerous materials (such as glass or metal) are used.

And as always, remind the boys that what is important is that they do their best, play by the rules, show good sportsmanship, and have fun.

There are all KINDS of samples all over the internet, but I've included a couple I found as well just for inspiration.  I can't wait to see the creative minds at work in our Pack!

Introduction to Map and Compass prior to CUB-O

Teach children the basics of navigation, and they’ll be ready for a lifetime of exploration

First, make sure the kids know what a map is and how it works. Sure, they might have seen you scratching your head over a road map a dozen times, but perhaps they’ve never actually used one before.
Choose a map of a place with which they’re familiar, such as a favorite park or campground. Don’t start with a large state road map or similarly scaled map, all those lines and colors are confusing.

Point out how to turn, or orient, the map so north is at the top. Find a compass rose or direction pointer, and explain how that works: When north is up, east is always to the right and west is always to the left.
If you’re working with a topo map, point out just a few colors and shapes: green for forested areas, blue for water, small black squares and rectangles for buildings. Don’t go into too many details about topographic lines.

Explain the concept of a scale. Let the kids measure one inch on the map and calculate how far that would be on the ground.

Next, pull out a simple compass, such as a Silva Starter.  

Many kids love technical details, so explain how the arrow floats in a liquid, the red pointer always pointing north. Show how they have to keep the compass level or the arrow can’t float freely.
Let them hold the compass and turn a complete circle, watching the arrow stay tracked to the north. Now that they have the basic elements of a map and compass down pat, it’s time to put the two together.

Have the kids place the map on a flat surface, and make sure they can point to north on the map. Now have one child place the compass on top of the map and line the direction of travel arrow so it points north.
Have another kid turn the map, without disturbing the compass, until the red arrow and the direction of travel arrow are aligned. Boom. Now both map and compass are pointing north.

The final step in Navigation 101 is to use the map and compass to actually navigate confidently from point A to point B.
All they have to do is find where they are on the map, and where they want to be.
They should align the compass so the baseplate connects these two points, then turn the compass dial until the north designation on the dial lines up with north on the map. Then they simply hold the compass and spin around until the red arrow is pointing to north on the dial. Start walking

Robot Roundup

The Longhorn Activity Center has developed some STEM classes which will be held in 2016 at the Activity Center.  The First Basic Robotics Class was a success and they're looking to add more fun!  Upcoming classes include:

Introduction to Robotics - Learn the basics about what a robot is and how it functions in this hands-on class.  Cost is $60 for 6 weeks.

Beginner Programming - Lean how to program using Scratch.  Cost is $100 for 6 weeks course.

Snap Circuits - Learn about electricity and circuits in this hands-on course.  Cost is $50 for six week course.

Intermediate Robotics - Using Lego Mindstorm, students will build and program robots to complete specific tasks.  Cost is $180 for six week course.

Class days and times will be posted on the Facebook page and the Longhorn Activity Center website. For more information, contact Charity Drabik at 817-231-8514.


Save the date and make plans to join us Saturday, January 2 from 9am to 4pm at Cub-O, the annual Cub Scout orienteering event held at Sid Richardson Scout Ranch.

Cub-O is the most poplar orienteering event in North America. A fun day of hiking and friendly competition for Cub Scouts, parents, and leaders. Orienteering, the use of map and compass, to find locations and plan a journey, has been a vital skill for humans for thousands of years. Thousands of people participate in the sport each year in local clubs and competitions. Longhorn Council has two events annually for orienteering. One is for Cub Scouts (Cub O), and one is held for Boy Scouts (SCORE-O).

Lunch is included. Each team of 3-6 Cubs gets a Cub-O map half an hour before the race starts. Your goal is to hike in the woods and find as many of the 40 orange and white orienteering flags as you can.  Plan your strategy to score the maximum point total possible in 2 hours! 

Map training sessions for Cub Scouts and parents are held all morning.

Lunch will be served in the dining hall. Meal times are assigned to minimize the length of serving lines. Units may choose to do Pack Family Camping on Friday and/or Saturday night. The Pack is not coordinating this campout, but any family desiring to camp either night, please see April as we hope to have an event coordinator who will facilitate this event.    Volunteers are a GREAT GIFT.... HINT HINT
Scores will be available by Saturday night. After the event, each team's competition race maps will be available to pick up at the District Roundtable meetings in January or February. 

This is a rain or shine event: extreme inclement weather (ice or snow) may cause a one week postponement. Weather announcements will be made on the Longhorn Council Website and on our blog as well.

Sound like something you want to do?  Well, print out this registration form and get it to April by Monday, December 28 with payment.  Two adults are required to register per team.  Teams will be assigned based upon the number of cubs registered in our Pack.  We will do our best to keep dens intact and to have our Webelos I & II combined.  

From the registration form:  

Cub-O is an orienteering event designed for everyone to enjoy: dens that compete hard, dens that want an easy hike in the woods, and dens that want to teach their boys more about problem solving and map reading. All Tigers, Cub Scouts, Webelos, leaders, and parents are invited. Separate awards for each age group. CUB-O is the most popular Orienteering event in the USA! Over 1000 Cub Scouts, leaders, and parents participated in CUB-O every year since 1999!

It’s fast, exciting, and FUN. And it’s all Cub Scouts. The locations of 40-50 orange and white orienteering flags are marked on the map and you and your team will go hiking in the woods to find them – or most of them! Each flag has a hole punch that you use to mark your scorecard. Flags are worth 5, 10, 15, 20, or 30 points, depending on how hard they are to find. Your Den team will get a Cub-O competition map 20 minutes before the race starts. Then you plan a hiking strategy to find the most flags and score the most points in just 2 hours! You’ll stay warm ‘cause you’ll stay moving!

Cub-O is a team event for teams (Dens) of 3-6 Cub Scouts and at least 2 adults. Each team must have at least two adults registered for Cub-O. Be sure to dress warmly in layers and bring lots of water! Bring a compass and a watch so you’ll finish on time. All registered participants will get a Cub-O patch, our latest 5-color competition map, lunch and a great day of orienteering.

Additional attendees (attending, assisting, or camping, but not competing) can pay $6 for lunch and liability insurance only but must register and be prepaid. 
Image result for camp out

We are strongly encouraging our Bears and Webelos of both years to camp out at this event.  B'sides -- it'll be fun! Besides, they only way you're going to learn, is to be exposed to as many opportunities as they possibly can.

Please be sure you RSVP on the Scoutbook invitation if you plan to go and in the comments section, you can include if you are going to camp out.  ALL parents do not need to go on the competition.  We only need two leader per group who have been YPT Trained.  Otherwise, you are welcome to run around with your family, relax, read, enjoy the outdoors and take advantage of some down time!

December - A Scout is Reverent

How Does “Winter Wonderland” Relate to This Point of the Scout Law?

As winter comes, it brings with it a wonderland of snow, peace, beauty, and holidays. All of us come from different backgrounds and celebrate many traditions; each of our traditions gives us an identity and a sense of belonging. When we share those traditions and accept others’ traditions, we expand our circle so everyone feels like they belong. 

Whether we celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or none of these, sharing valued traditions and holding true to what they stand for will help us understand others.  But no matter who we are or how we celebrate, we are all part of a great organization that has taught us to show reverence for others and their beliefs.

Join us for our monthly pack meeting at United Methodist Church of Keller. Our Gathering Activity starts at 6:15 PM and the meeting will begin promptly at 6:30 PM. Make sure your scout looks his best and sports some seriously seasonal headgear!

Brag Vest

Wondering what to do with all of your activity and service Patches?  One way to display them is with a Youth Patch Vest also called a "brag vest."

The vest can be purchased at the Longhorn Council Scout Shop or online at

We interrupt your regularly scheduled surfing with this important announcement.  Ladies and gentlemen, the THEME for the 2016 Blue & Gold Banquet has been selected...

wait for it.....

wait for it.....

The winner is.... STAR WARS!

For those of you who may be new to the world of Cub Scouts, the Blue & Gold banquet is one of the highlights of the Cub Scout year.  It is a celebration of the anniversary (or "birthday") of Scouting.  Simplified, it's a large-scale Pack meeting with food.  On a broader scope, it's the last meeting our Webelos 2 scouts will ever come to as a Cub Scouts -- we say good by to them, their families and any leaders that are crossing over to Boy Scouts.  We have a friendly themed cake-baking competition (they should be quite interesting this year with this theme for sure!)  We have special guests.  But, the bottom line is... we have fun!  Save the date for Friday, February 19, 2016 at 6:30 p.m.  

*If you are interested in being on the Blue & Gold planning committee, please contact April Driggers.  Our Pack's protocol is that the Webelos 2 den leads the coordination since it is their sons' goodbye celebration but we will need parents in the Webelos 1 and Bear dens to learn the ways of the Force in order to replicate the program in years to come.

STEM / NOVA Awards

Have you heard about the Cub Scouts Nova awards and the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program? It is a BSA initiative to encourage boys’ curiosity in these integral fields of the future.

As part of the Cub Scouts Nova STEM program, boys can earn two different awards. The hope is that the requirements and activities for earning these awards stimulates interest in STEM-related fields and shows how science, technology, engineering and mathematics apply to everyday living and the world around them.

The NOVA Awards program has four Nova awards for Cub Scouts. Each award covers one component of STEM—science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. Boys may earn a patch for the first award and a pi pin for each of the remaining three awards.

NOVA Pi Pin The NOVA awards can be earned by working with your parent or adult leader.  

There are four modules for Cub Scouts and Webelos.

Science Everywhere – This sections helps boys discover how science impacts our every day life.

Tech Talk – Boys learn how far-reaching technology is.

Swing – Swing explores engineering and simple machines such as levers.

1-2-3 Go – Cub Scouts discover how and why math is such an integral part of our daily lives.

For a more intense study of STEM topics, Cub Scouts can work on the Supernova award. 

Unlike the Nova award where you as the parent can be the counselor, the Supernova award requires that boys work with a council-approved mentor. 

To learn more about the Nova counselor and Supernova mentor roles, you can review this presentation. Check with your local council on how to become a mentor.

Our Bears and Wolves can earn the Dr. Luis W. Alvarez Supernova Award. Webelos earn the Dr. Charles H. Townes Supernova Award. Tigers aren’t eligible for these awards.

FAQs on the STEM/NOVA experience can be found HERE.

Be clean in my outdoor manners,
Be careful with fire,
Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation-minded.

Be clean in my outdoor manners
  • I will treat the outdoors as a heritage.
  • I will take care of it for myself and others.
  • I will keep my trash and garbage out of lakes, streams, fields, woods, and roadways.
Be careful with fire

Christmas Party Plans

It's hard to believe but it's time to start thinking about CHRISTMAS already!  But hey...

So we've gotta do what we've gotta do!

As usual we have a fantastic evening planned for all our families.  We are having a Christmas Pack Pizza Party!  

Oh yes, we said pizza!  You heard that right!  There will be pizza for everyone!  NO rushing to try to eat before the Pack Meeting.  There will be food and drinks and dessert right there!

We are asking that families with last names that start with A-L to please bring bring a 2 liter of something or a gallon of something to share with everyone.  

If your last name starts with M-Z to please bring a dessert to share with everyone. 

The pack will have pizza, plates, paper goods and, of course, all the entertainment.

So, save the date for the our December Pack Meeting.  Tuesday, December 8.

  • We will pass out popcorn sales winner prizes
  • We will pass out boxes for the January Cubanopolis
  • We will collect any outstanding funds for recharter, popcorn or t-shirt orders
  • T-shirt orders will be due at December's Pack meeting.  Thank you for your patience on this.

One thing we DO have a GREAT NEED For is for YOUR PHOTOS!!!! If you can e-mail, provide them via flash drive, share them in the cloud, e-mail them one by one.  We would love to have your best snapshots to play during our slide show and it's always better when we get enough submissions to make complete den... so think of field trips, pack meetings, camping.... rockets, anything!  Send me your pictures!  Thanks so much!


Community Service

Image result for community storehouse logo
Pack 1910 has partnered with Community Storehouse ("CS") to help make the Christmas meals a little better and the shopping less of a burden for families in need.  As such, we are taking collections for holiday food baskets for our last community service project of 2015. Donations will be collected at or before our DECEMBER 8 PACK MEETING and taken the next day to CS.

We would like to encourage our Scouts to step it up a notch at home and do whatever extra chores around the house that they can between now and the December Pack meeting.  This will enable them to earn a little extra spending money which they could then use to purchase items to donate themselves and really take ownership of this service project.  It takes a village and everyone doing their part during the holidays to make it all work.  

Another idea that others have done is they have taken their wagon, Scout in uniform and had printed list in hand to show neighbors and TELL THEM what you are are seeking -- I would bet that most (but not all) will likely clear out their pantry for this cause.  People love the opportunity not only to help Cub Scouts but also their fellow man.  

The needed items for the Community Store are:

  • Cereal
  • Cake mix & frosting 
  • Cookie or muffin mixes 
  • Stove Top Stuffing 
  • Instant Potatoes 
  • Hamburger Helper or Tuna Helper 
  • Soup 
  • Canned Vegetables 
  • Cans of Fruit 
  • Gravy Mix 
  • Broth 
  • Canned Sweet Potatoes 
  • Canned Pumpkin 
  • Cranberry Sauce 
  • Evaporated Milk 
  • Peanut Butter 
  • 2 lbs bags of Rice 
  • Dried Beans 
  • Pudding Mix 
  • Boxed Jell-O 
  • Mac N Cheese 
  • Cornbread Mix 
  • Ramen Noodles
  • $10 food gift cards for turkeys/chickens
If you're feeling extra generous, I can tell you, too, that they are AAAAAAAAAAAALWAYS in need of bread, peanut butter and jelly.

If you would like to have a printable list to take to the grocery store.  Click HERE to be taken to a printable .pdf of the holiday list. Or, if you would like to have a printable list of snack foods they always need to feed the kids on the weekend, you can find that here. Whatever you can do, just DO because the kids in our community are counting on us!

So thank you, families of Pack 1910 for your generosity and love.  When we can come together for the greater good of the community, it just warms my heart.

Pack Meeting TOMORROW

Don't forget TOMORROW, at 6:30 Tuesday, November 10 is the November Pack meeting at the Bear Creek Park fire pit.  

Park in the parking lot by the sand volleyball court and go over the bridge to the opposite side of the creek.  The fire pit is near the running trail.  Assistant Cubmaster, Christopher Mahanna will be our fireman for the evening.

A word of safety before our event -- please do not allow any children to run near the fire.  Along the same lines, our fireman will be the only on responsible for putting **anything** in or removing anything from the fire until the flag retirement ceremony.  Parents, we would like you present beside them as they place their flag parts into the pit (safety first).    

We have a 50% chance of rain.  Which means, we also have a 50% change of NO rain. Please watch your e-mail.  If we have to reschedule due to rain, you will be notified both on the blog and through your e-mail.  Announcements regarding postponement will be made no later than 5pm.  The temperature looks good, however.  The low is only 66. That certainly beats the 30 degree temps and teen-level wind chill that we've had for the last two years!!  We are certainly hoping the odds are in our favor!

This isn't just an average campfire, this will be a flag retirement ceremony which we will attempt to make sure that ALL scouts get a part to play.  Webelos I and II need to be sure you let your den leaders know ASAP if you'll be present so they can reserve speaking lines for you.  

WHAT TO BRING:  Scouts should be sure to bring a HEADLAMP if you have one (to keep your hands free for reading), water bottles, 
a chair and maybe a blanket... you may need it!  

Our event will commence at 6:30 sharp.  Once the service has ended, we invite pack members and their families over for some hot chocolate and a light snack.  Thank you to our Webelos I, Attel family, for coordinating this.  Please see Monica Attel during set-up to offer assistance.

If you have yet to pick up your popcorn, it will be in April's car.  I am working on fixing errors on two orders.  I will have everything else there.

Congrats to our Webelos 2

Last month our Webelos 2 den camped overnight with Troop 1910 as part of their Arrow of Light requirements while the rest of our pack was enjoying the festivities with the Fall Festival and Haunted Hay Ride.  While there, they participated in an event called SCORE-O. 

SCORE-O an orienteering event held as a timed race where you have to navigate with your map and compass to find waypoints on a map (that you don't receive until an hour before the timer starts) each of which have different point values depending on their degree of difficulty in accessing them. 

Out of the 18 Webelos teams, Den 3 scored in 10th place.  Even more impressive is that they scored higher than 73 of the Boy Scout teams! WHOA!

Thank you again to Mr. Harmon for leading them!

Tuesday, November 3, 2015


It’s time again to recharter our Pack with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).  As part of this process, each Scout and leader must register for the upcoming year.  Those that joined in September, should have already paid for this year's fees with your registration payment.

The $75 annual dues payment to Pack 1910 is made up of three components: 

1) National Dues – this fee is paid directly to the Boy Scouts of America and registers your Cub Scout for the period January through December.

  • The National Dues are $25.50 ($24 registration fee plus $1.50 for accident insurance) per Cub Scout.  
  • The Pack pays the national dues and insurance ($25.50) for each registered leader.
2) Boys’ Life Fee – Boy's Life is the monthly magazine for the Boy Scouts of America. It’s a great read that reinforces Scouting and the good family values that are part of our program. While registration for Boys’ Life is optional, we feel that the content is so important and relevant, we choose to make this part of your registration payment.  Therefore, this $12 fee has been incorporated into the dues as well. For more information, visit:  Boy's Life is $1 per month, so $12 annually.

3) Pack Fee – Pack 1910 charges an annual Pack Fee to help cover the cost of running the pack.  This includes leadership registration, training, advancement, facility fees and program costs. The fee is set each year by the Pack Committee. The annual Pack Fee is $37.50 per scout.  At the very basic level, this covers the handbook for each boy ($13), rank badges ($2 ea), mother's pins ($1.40), Webelos activity badges ($38 for all 20), all core adventure loops for each rank ($10 per rank), pinewood derby car ($4), rain gutter regatta kit ($5.50), the Pack 1910 unit patches ($6) and the Pack 1910 brag vest patch ($2) as well as all segment patches for participation ($0.40 ea) and all of the materials associated with monthly Pack meetings.  As you can see, there is well over $55 of tangible goods each scout receives annually just for doing what they do! This doesn't even cover the other costs... just what our BOYS receive.

These three components make the annual fee of $75.00 per year for each Cub Scout.  

However, as I'm sure you can realize, the $37.50 Pack Fee does not even begin cover the annual expenses associated with each boy in the Pack.  Thus, we rely heavily on fundraising to ensure an awesome program for our youth.  This is done by way of our annual popcorn sale.  Thank you to all of those families that participated!  You have raised about $1,500 for our pack!  We simply couldn't do this without you!

Each current family should have received an e-mail today regarding recharter.  There are several options to make your payment:  cash, check, credit card or PayPal.    

We need all dues for 2016 paid by November 15.  

Remember, the fun things we do at the Pack meetings, the prizes, awards, rank insignia, handbooks, patches and all that the pack provides is funded only by dues and fundraisers.  We budget and rely on that commitment from every family each year. 

Thank you for your assistance with the great fall paper chase!  I appreciate everyone's prompt attention to this matter.  If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours in Scouting,

April Driggers
Committee Chair
