Silver Comet Turkey Shoot - Nov 4th

posted Oct 10, 2017, 6:50 AM by Pack 002 website

Come join us for a day of fun in the sun as we attend our the annual Silver Comet District Turkey Shoot!  

Cub Scouts will try their skills at BB shooting and Archery, and the high scores in BBs will win Turkeys just in time for Thanksgiving. We will have the Climbing Wall, several hands on crafts, and 10 or more field games, other games, and activities.

For our 2017 Silver Comet District "Scouting for Food" we are partnering with the Center for Family Resources to help "stuff the turkey." They are hoping to collect 1200 boxes of stuffing to help provide 1200 families with Thanksgiving dinner so set up your "Stuffing Drive" and bring your donation for drop off at the Turkey Shoot. Of course, any other canned goods or non-perishable food items are welcome

Siblings, age 6 or older, may participate in all events. If they choose to shoot BB, use the climbing wall, or make the crafts, the registration fee will apply. There is no charge or age limit for visiting the displays or playing the games.

Note, the event will be held this year at the Cobb County STOUT EQUESTRIAN CENTER.  (Access to the Event is from the Brownsville Road entrance).

All Silver Comet Packs, Troops and Crews are invited to show their Scout Spirit and pride in their community at the Great Lake Allatoona Cleanup coming up on September 30, 2017.  This is a great community service project for all Scouts, and many of our Units make a point of volunteering every year. 

The Cleanup is from 9 am to noon and there is an optional volunteer appreciation picnic and entertainment from noon to 2 pm at the Riverside Day Use area in Cartersville.

Please join the pack as we head off to Bert Adams Scouting Camp to celebrate Spooky-Ree, a fall themed weekend filled with a fall festival, creepy-crawly nature show, pumpkin carving and decorating, archery, BBs, s'mores, and a campfire. The highlight of the weekend is the Trick-or-Treating Trail for all Scouts and an extra spooky haunted trail for the older Scouts and adults.

Bring out the whole family: Cub Scouts, big brothers and sisters, little brothers and sisters, cousins, etc. Everyone is welcome to come out to camp and enjoy the beautiful fall weather at Bert Adams! Siblings of Cub Scouts can participate in almost all of the activities.

BSA Eclipse Patch

posted Jul 18, 2017, 4:04 AM by Pack 002 website

A total solar eclipse is a rare event. A total solar eclipse whose path crosses right over the heart of the United States? Even rarer.  On Aug. 21, 2017, the solar system serves up a special treat. Aug. 21 is a Monday, but those Scouts and Venturers who are still on summer break should plan a big celebration. Like all the best celebrations, this one comes with its own patch! There won’t be another total solar eclipse over the United States until 2024. After that, you must wait until 2045. In other words, when Aug. 21 arrives, make sure you’re ready.

Please see this link to see what you need to do to earn your solar eclipse patch:  https://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2017/06/27/earn-bsa-2017-solar-eclipse-patch/
