Now accepting girls AND boys!

posted Jun 9, 2018, 11:43 AM by Katie Kross   [ updated Jun 9, 2018, 12:03 PM ]

In 2018, the Boys Scouts of America began integrating girls into its Scouting programs, mirroring Scouting in many other countries around the world, which is already co-ed.  Pack 39 has made the decision to begin accepting girls into our program for the 2018-19 year.

While this is a new chapter for Scouting, we are committed to making this the best possible experience for both boy and girl Cub Scouts in our pack, upholding all of the values and best traditions of Scouting.  Dens will remain single-gender (with boy-only dens and girl-only dens).  Den meetings will still provide opportunities for boys to be immersed in experiences solely with other boys, and girls to be with girls.  Pack meetings and family camping activities will bring all dens together. 

As always, parent participation is an important part of the Cub Scout program.  Our number one priority is the safety of all Cub Scouts.  All of our leaders have completed Youth Protection Training and we encourage all parents to enroll in the training as well.  

If you have a son or daughter who would like to join Pack 39 as we kick off the 2018-19 year this fall, please read more and contact us to join.

Only five days to go until first spring outing, scheduled for March 18-20.  Registration is now open at https://pack39-springcampout.eventbrite.com .  Registration for this event will close at the end of the day 3/15/16.  Please register soon.

This should be a great campout with some fun activities.  The campground has a lot of possibilities for hikes and hopefully we will  have a ranger lead hike.  There is a historic farm in the park and a popular waterfall, which could be a good Sunday activity for families. 

After you RSVP, don't forget to volunteer for a food duty! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/904084EA9AD23A02-pack

Please note: You are responsible for providing all other meals and snacks for your family.  So if you are planning for the full weekend experience that means that you are responsible for bringing any desired snacks for Saturday, lunch for Saturday, and something for breakfast on Sunday.

The Pinewood Derby is Coming!

posted Dec 18, 2015, 11:09 AM by Trent Leonard

Weigh-In: Friday, January 29th, 5:30pm to 7pm
Pinewood Derby: Saturday, January 30th, 9am to approximately 11:30 (plan to arrive around 8:45)

Cars can be crafted from only what's in the box, but additional supplies (including weights are available at the Occoneechee Council Scout Store, scoutstuff.org, Lowes, Home Depot, and Michaels.

Pack 39 has additional sets for $5 for siblings, former scouts, and parents who would like to enter the Legacy Race.

Help your scout have fun, and have fun helping him.  

Full Rules: 

https://docs.google.com/a/pack39nc.org/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=cGFjazM5bmMub3JnfHB1YmxpY3xneDo0YmUwYzUwZjgxZWIxZTEz

Some rule highlights: 

Parents are asked to REFRAIN from DIRECT WORK on building the cars. Parental
participation as teachers, supervisors and coaches is strongly encouraged, but this
event should have the desired benefit as a learning activity for the SCOUT. Most of the labor must be his own.

The use of power tools, especially cutting tools such as table saws, band saws,
etc., is discouraged. These are extremely dangerous in the hands of Cub Scouts,
and only encourage more parent participation than is necessary. The use of hand
tools such as hand saws, coping saws, sanding blocks, planes, etc. is a part of
advancement activities for all ranks, and should be encouraged for Derby
building.

14.The overall length of the car shall not exceed 7 inches (17.8 cm). 
15.The overall width of the car shall not exceed 2 3/4 inches (7.0 cm). 
16.The overall height of the car shall not exceed 5 inches (12.7 cm).
17.The weight of the car shall not exceed 5 ounces (141.7 grams). The recommended method of weighing cars is with a digital postal scale set to measure in grams (less than or equal to 141 grams – 3 significant digits of precision), rather than set to ounces (less than or equal to 5.0 ounces – 2 significant digits of precision). 
18.Cars must have a minimum of 3/8-inch (1.0 cm) clearance from the bottom of the car to the track. 
19.No loose materials or sliding pieces are permitted on or in the car.
21.The car may not ride on any type of springs. 
22.The car must be freewheeling with no starting devices or propulsion devices, e.g. springs, fans, bottle rockets, balloons or CO2 cartridges. Movable weights are prohibited, as is the use of a liquid weight such as water or mercury. 
23.The distance between the front and rear wheels cannot be altered. The axle cutouts provided in the blocks MUST be used. These may be re-drilled, but NEW HOLES are prohibited.
