Starting at 3:00pm on Saturday, January 26 and ending at 9:00am on Sunday
January 27, Pack 937 will be touring and staying over on the USS Lexington. The
Lexington was commissioned in 1942 and saw extensive action in the Pacific
theatre during World War II. This is a unique opportunity for Scouts and their
parents to experience first-hand the workings of a modern aircraft carrier and
to learn about its historic contribution to ending the war in the Pacific,
amongst other assignments in the post-war era. We hope you can join us.
We need a headcount and payment for all parents and Scouts who will be
attending the overnight camping trip aboard the USS Lexington no later than
Sunday, November 25 . Cost is $49/person.
Attached is a PDF with the details or you can learn more about this experience
Please reply to Scott Uhl with confirmation and headcount in your party. His
e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
or he can be reached at 817.488.0991 or on his cell at 972.896.9695.
Scott will make arrangement to collect payment once you have let him know
that you intend to attend. More logistical information will follow in early
Thank you and regards,
2012 marks the 55th year for Jamboree-on-the-Air (JOTA) so come be a
part of it all at the National Scouting Museum! JOTA is a World Scouting
event that bridges Scouts all over the world via amateur
radio. Numerous amateur radio stations will be set up throughout the
Museum, allowing for both local and global communication by various
modes. There will also be many other fun and educational activities;
such as hidden transmitter hunts, electronic project assembly, solar
telescopes, demonstrations of satellite communications, and much more
throughout the day!
Here's a link to the BSA website with more information: http://bsamuseum.org/Programs/JOTA%202012.aspx
This isn't an official Pack event, however if you're looking for a fun activity on Saturday (10/20), this looks like a great one!
Attached is a flyer describing an upcoming event that our Pack can participate in. On Friday, October 5, Cowboys Stadium is hosting a sleepover party for Scouts in the area. The festivities start at 5pm and include an opportunity to sleep on the field of the stadium, get a full tour, and watch a movie on the big screen! The cost is $55/person if we have 20 attendees from the Pack ($60/person otherwise).
The deadline to register is 9/28 and we'll have a sign-up sheet at next weeks Pack meeting (which is 9/17 at 6:30pm).
Every 4 years, the Longhorn Council holds a big camporee - and this is the year!
Attached is a flyer with information on the camporee - you'll want to put the dates on your calendar (11/9-11) and additional details will follow at upcoming Pack meetings.
This is a huge event - it's open to the whole family and it's a ton of fun!!

We’ll be having our
last Pack “summertime” event Wednesday, August 29th from 4-7pm at Summit Rock
Climbing Gym in Grapevine. We thought it would be an awesome way to start
both the school year and Cubscout activities by having the event during the 1st
week of school, which is ½ days. If your scout brings a friend who is
interested in joining, both boys fees are waived. Please print, fill out,
and bring the waiver, especially if there is a child without a parent or
guardian in attendance. If you want a great way to beat the heat,
please come climb with the Pack!
Climbing Gym is located at 1040 Mustang Drive, Grapevine (www.summitrockgym.com/)
August 29th, 4-7pm
(please pay at the event and make checks payable to "Pack 937") Free
for child interested in scouting and scout that brings him.
If you haven't tried
climbing at Summit, this is a great opportunity to rock climb in a safe, air
conditioned environment. It really is a lot of fun!
Please let us know if
you plan to attend - we'll have pizza and refreshments at the event and want to
make sure we have enough for everyone.
