Spring Campout CANCELED

Posted on May 16 2018 - 8:57pm
 
 
Pack 391,
With the weather this weekend looking pretty miserable (cool and wet), we have decided to cancel the campout for this weekend.
 
In its place, we will be having and end-of-the year graduation celebration/ceremony to celebrate our scouts’ hard work and advancement throughout the year.  From 6:15-9:00, we will have dinner, graduation ceremony and swimming/gym time for our scouts and families.  The event will be in the Dry Craft Room at the Chaska Community Center, with the following being the schedule of activities:
 
6:15-7: Dinner Served
7:7:30:  Graduation/Advancement Ceremonies for each rank
7:30-7:45:  Graduation Cake
7:45-9:00: Open Swim or Gym
 
Just a reminder that all Bears should bring their new Boy Scout Tan uniforms to wear under your blue uniform for the ceremony, and if there are any dens that want to do a skit that night, just let me know.  Otherwise, bring your swim suits or gym shoes and we’ll have a great time celebrating the year!
 
YIS,
Matt Podhradsky

Pack 391 Welcoming Girls

Posted on Apr 21 2018 - 7:49pm

Pack 391 Families,

 
After an open discussion and an informal survey, our committee has decided to allow girls to join Pack 391 effective next school year. While we understand there are concerns, we hope to continue an open conversation about the future of Pack 391.
 
 
Will this impact programming or advancements?
 
  •  Pack 391 will continue to follow BSA criteria for scouting. While BSA criteria may change, we remain committed to the fundamentals of scouting and outdoor adventures.
 
Will girls be allowed to cross over to Boy Scout Troops?
 
  • Boy Scouts of America will be making similar changes effective 2019-2020 school year
 
What are the reasons to allow girls in Pack 391?
  • We are a family focused Pack that has often included siblings. This formalizes their participation.
 
  •  We feel it is important to include everyone who wants to participate in the great programs our Pack has to offer.
 
  • We feel it is important for our children to recognize both genders being involved in all activities.
 
A part of our scouting culture is an assumption of equality and inclusion of all children. This decision is the next logical step towards that goal.
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please discuss them with Pack 391 leadership.
 
 Sincerely,
 
Pack 391 Committee

Pack meeting

Posted on Apr 14 2018 - 2:04pm

Pack 391:

Welcome to Spring!  It seems pretty appropriate that we are having a winter-like activity planned for our April Pack Meeting!  Just wanted to send out a reminder that our April Pack meeting is coming up this Sunday evening from 5-7 pm.  It will be a “Learn to Curl” event at the Chaska Curling Center.  We have done this in the past, and it is a lot of fun.  I would ask that everyone try to get there about 5-10 minutes early, and when you arrive to go up to the Curling Club Room in the front of the Curling Ice sheets.  This will be the room we gather, fill out some release forms and then eventually get our “dry-land” training before we get out on the ice.  This event is open to everyone in the family, so feel free to have siblings and parents try it if you would like.  The only thing that we ask is that anybody who attends make sure they bring a clean pair of tennis shoes to wear out on the ice.  It is very tough on the ice if any loose gravel/salt, etc… gets on the ice.  Just bring them along and you can put them on up in the Curling room.  It is also recommended you wear comfortable clothes-it can be pretty difficult to curl in jeans.  Also bring hat and gloves as it can get cold out on the ice.  Following our curling session there will be treats for all participants.  Also, a reminder to parents that we will have the monthly parent/leader meeting immediate following the pack meeting right in the Curling Club Room. 

 

This should be a great event-look forward to seeing you all there!

 

YIS,
Matt Podhradsky
