Parents, we are in need of more BALOO trained adults in our Pack.
Why? Great question! I'm glad you asked. You see, as a Pack we not allowed to camp-out anywhere other than at a Council or District sponsored event UNLESS we have at LEAST one BALOO trained adult. We currently only have two BALOO trained adults in our ENTIRE PACK! Also, they are BOTH in our Webelos I den!
Furthermore, as a Pack, we like to have a minimum of two BALOO trained adults on every Pack camp out because if there is only one.... and that person has to leave... the campout has to be over. It's not allowed to continue per BSA rule. The more BALOO trained adults we have in our Pack, the better off everyone is!
But have no fear.... THIS WEEKEND there is an upcoming training provided by no other than our illustrious Mustang District Training Committee. The catch? We need parents to attend!
WHAT: BALOO Training
WHERE: Northwood Church, 1870 Rufe Snow Drive (enter on Kids side)
WHEN: Saturday, January 31 from 8:30 am - 5pm
WHY: Because our camping program DEPENDS ON YOU!
COST: $15 per person
Ready to sign up? Awesome click here and register online. Once you complete the course, you get a handy dandy business sized card that signifies you are indeed a BALOO trained adult. Please take a copy of it (picture from your phone is just fine) and send it to April to update our Pack database.
This is one way and one afternoon that you can do something small that will make a big difference to the boys' program. After all, we do it ALL for them! Please consider attending the training.

We will have an evening of fellowship, dinner, dessert, an exciting Arrow of Light presentation and did I mention the snakes? OH yes.... SNAKES!
Dinner will be a slithering pasta bar with salad and bread

We will need a final head count and prepayment for those attending. Please RSVP TO YOUR DEN LEADERS as soon as possible.

The cost is $6 per person with a max of $24 per family (that reside under the same roof). If you invite your cousin Leo from Toledo, your Nana from Kentucky, Aunt Ruth from Oklahoma and favorite Great Uncle Bob from Buffalo.... they'll need to be paid for separately. Thanks for your understanding.
All scouts need to bring a cake they helped make and decorate in this theme. Please note that after judging, cakes will be served and eaten for dessert.
More information will be sent to your den leaders! Stay tuned.

The Core Value for the month of January is POSITIVE ATTITUDE.
Having a positive attitude is being cheerful and setting our minds to look for and find the best in all situations. Through participating in various activities at the pack meeting and pack talent show, boys will gain a better understanding of the importance of having a positive attitude whether they are part of the audience or as the center of attention on stage.
But how exactly do they have a positive attitude? By learning to:
- Be positive in their thoughts and words.
- Be cheerful.
- Look for the bright side of all situations.
- Keep a good sense of humor.
- Be optimistic.
- Think good thoughts.
- Believe in yourself.
- Trust your friends, family, and teammates.
There are lots of opportunities in Cub Scouts where boys can let those negative feelings and emotions creep up... at den meetings... during games... having to wait... being on a team that doesn't win... but helping, redirecting and showing them how to have a positive attitude helps EVERYONE around them! Remind them to always
