Pack Meetings

Pack Meeting DustYou know what’s a total blast?  A room full of 40 boys on a Friday Evening having a whole lotta FUN!  And boy, do they love to holler out the word “FUN!”

Cubmaster Mr. John Schnake and Assistant Cubmaster Mr. Lance Anderson run the monthly pack meetings.  They have 3 rules:

  1. Pay Attention
  2. Respect Others
  3. Have Fun!

Pack Meeting Themes for 2015-2016:
September 11 – Kindness
October 2 – Brave, Heroes
November 6 – Courteous, Indoor Camp Fire
December 4 – Reverent, Winter Wonderland
January 8 – Trustworthy, The Great Race
February 19 – Cheerful, Strike Up the Band!
April 1 – Obedient, It’s A Hit!

Typical Agenda:

  • Opening Flag – Each month, the dens take turns leading the opening flag ceremony
  • Scout Oath and Law – Found on the Bobcat Page
  • Opening Prayer
  • Pack Rules, Introduce Guests, and Reward boys who are wearing neckerchiefs, slides, and have their shirts tucked in.
  • Discuss the Monthly Theme
  • Announcements – The boys sing, “Announcements, announcements, announcements.  A terrible way to die!  A terrible way to die!  A terrible way, a terrible way, a terrible way to die!”
  • Denner Reports – Each den sends a representative up to the front to tell what their den did that month.  The boys always end their list with, “And we had fun!” (Close your ears when they say, “Fun!”)  Following each den report, the den does their den chant.
  • Skit or Song – Each month, a den takes a turn doing a skit or leading a song
  • Awards and Recognition – Handing out the bling!
  • Closing – Each month, a den takes a turn doing a closing
  • Cubmaster Minute – Mr. Schnake shares a tidbit of sage advice about how to carry forth the idea from the monthly theme.
