Posted on Jan 19 2019 - 9:13pm
Pinewood Derby
The Pinewood Derby Race is finally here.  It will take place on Friday, January 25, at the GRDC Multipurpose Room.  Scouts can begin checking in their cars at 5:30PM.  Judging for the design categories will begin at 6:20PM.  And racing will begin at 6:30!
There will be pizza and water for sale (thank you Giuliane Belt, Michelle Haley, and Billie Pierce!).  There will also be a photo booth to take photos of the scouts and their creations.  The scouts have been hard at work building their cars and it should be a fun night! 
Blue and Gold
The Blue and Gold event is set for February 15.  For the new families, this is a celebration of the Cub Scouts' birthday.  Neslihan Cetin and Michelle Haley busy are planning the event and they need an estimate of how many people will attend, since the dinner will be catered.  Please RSVP on your Scoutbook.com account or send Bernard Soriano an email (bernard.pack281@gmail.com) indicating how many people will be attending.  Scouts and their families are invited.  We need the RSVP by January 25.
Camp Lassen
Families are beginning to plan their summer vacations.  And Pack 281 has reservations for Camp Lassen.  The dates are July 24 - 27.  Camp Lassen is campground run by the Golden Empire Council in Forest Lake, CA.  There are scouting programs throughout the camp stay.  More information can be found at http://www.gec-bsa.org/camping-/camp-lassen/camp-lassen-history/63516 .  We will need a headcount of everyone attending Camp Lassen by the end of May.  More information will be forthcoming, but wanted to let all the families know of the reservation dates.
USS Pampanito
We are currently planning our spring sleepover at the USS Pampanito.  This is a World War II submarine located at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.  Potential dates are in April and we will notify families as soon as the date is fixed.
BSA Hockey Night
We received the following message regarding hockey night with Stockton Heat:

The Stockton Heat are excited to begin taking reservations for the BSA Night and Star Wars Night hockey game on March 2nd! All members of the BSA community, including Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Girls, Family Units, Venturing as well all of your friends and family are invited to take advantage of this discounted and affordable night out. Last year we had about 800 scouts and BSA supporters in the building!

A huge thank you to Dan and Amy Jones for hosting Saturday's Pinewood Derby Clinic.  It was very generous to make your home available to scouts as they build their Pinewood Derby cars.

It's Pinewood Derby month!
