What the Entire Pack is "Doing" Together...

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).

Come join us Sept. 15th at the Legacy Park Amphitheater, as we sell popcorn, drinks and snacks and watch a movie under the stars!  We get set up at 6:30, and the movie starts at 8:30.  If you can't make it to help with the booth, come out anyway, wear your class-Bs, and represent the pack!

Great Lake Allatoona Cleanup

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 sign up on Scoutbook by September 12th so we can reserve a spot!

Spooky-Ree is coming!

posted Aug 16, 2017, 4:35 AM by Pack 002 website

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/

New Pack Website - Welcome!

posted May 17, 2011, 12:32 PM by Justin Lofquist

You will notice some changes in the way we go about Pack business over the next several months and we are pretty sure they will be changes for the better.  Our hope is that you can (eventually) rely on the website as your main source of information about our Scout program.

In the near future, our leaders will learn to post stories and update their calendars and some other nifty tricks to keep everyone at the top of their game. Please give them some leeway as the changes go into effect and everything starts smoothing out.  It might get a little rocky before it gets smooth.

We think you are going to like the changes.  This website is already packed with features and when we get in a groove at the leadership level it will be even better.

If you'd like to contribute let us know.  You can start at the "Strong Leaders" section.
