Popcorn sales is the Pack’s only fundraiser, but it does more than just help fund camping trips, pay for pizza at the Pinewood Derby, or help defringe the costs of so many other activities.
The Pack offers the top seller an amazing prize, and all kids who sell popcorn can earn prizes through Trail’s End based on the amount they sell. Scouts who sell $500.00 or more can earn a trip to Magness paid for by the Pack, and those that sell over $1,000 can get their parents way paid as well. For Webelos 2, the Pack will pay for their Boy Scout membership fee.
For more information, contact our Popcorn Kernel, Jeff Bandy, firstname.lastname@example.org. Order forms and money are due at the October Pack meeting on 10/18/2018. Popcorn can be picked up for delivery the first weekend of November.
Membership Dues are $39 per person – youth and adult participants alike – for a year of membership and coverage. At just $3.25 per month, Scouting still offers lower membership costs than many other youth programs. As the nation’s leading character and leadership development program, this makes it a great value and investment in a young person’s future.
Membership renewal for 2019 will be due by the end of December.
Cub Scouts have been building and racing Pinewood Derby® cars since 1953. Partnered with a parent or adult mentor, Cub Scouts work together, strengthening bonds and building confidence – and their own custom race cars! They begin by choosing a car design, then carve it out and detail it with paint, decals and other accessories, and perfect strategies to compete in their pack’s own Pinewood Derby. It’s s a wonderful learning experience centered on teamwork, ingenuity and sportsmanship – all for the thrill of the race and a lifetime of great memories to share with fellow racers young and old.
Pack 711 holds their Pinewood Derby every year in January. Check out the links below for more information
