🏁 Pinewood Derby Feedback
I hope everyone had a great time at the Pinewood Derby last weekend! If you or your Scouts have any feedback on the event, or on the changes we made this year (such as the updates to the design awards and changes to the Open Class / Outlaw race), please reply and let me know. We want it to be a fun and memorable event that everyone enjoys, so please don’t hesitate to share your feedback with me, and we’ll keep it in mind for next year’s event!

⚜️Blue & Gold Banquet
I also wanted to make sure that everyone is saving the date for the Blue & Gold Banquet. It’s going to be Sunday, Feb 25: 5-7 PM at the Westerville Community Center. This will be a fun event for the Scouts to celebrate their accomplishments – we’ll have dinner, award rank advancements, and watch our Arrow of Light Scouts to “cross over” into their new Scouts BSA troops! 

We’ll have plenty of space this year, so please feel free to invite extended family members to celebrate with us! There will be a minimal cost per person to help cover the cost of food ($5, I believe). You will receive an email within the next week or so with ticket information and other details.

At the moment, we have two brave souls who have offered to help coordinate the banquet… so we could use a few more helpers. 😅 If you’re willing to help with the event (think: purchasing items, ordering food, decorating, planning activities, setup, etc.), please email Amy (amyhohman@gmail.com).

✅Rank Advancement
Your Scouts’ den leaders will be reaching out to help you finish-up any rank requirements that they may be missing. Please be sure to get these items completed and let your den leader know, so your Scout is able to earn his/her rank badge at the banquet. And don’t worry – if they don’t earn it in time for the banquet, we can award it at a future Pack meeting before the end of the school year.

Thanks for being a part of our Pack! If you have any questions, please let me know.
