on Friday, 5/31. If you have a truck and can help, please contact Caty Patelzick (patcatjer@hotmail.com).

Parents, please take a moment to review the meeting agenda below. Our goal is to have a fun, safe and organized event.
*Pro Tip* Just in case, pack a towel and a top for your Scout to put in case they get wet.

Reminders - Upcoming Events - Raingutter Regatta, Gear Swap, Bridging Camp and More!

Posted on May 11 2024 - 6:12am


Hello, Pack 3179 Families!

What an exciting time of year. As the school year winds down, it seems our calendars are full with "all the things"
To help you keep Pack 3179 Scouting matters straight, here are some quick reminders about upcoming events.


Happy Mother's Day - May 12, 2023

Warm wishes and gratitude to each and every mom in our Pack. Wishing you a most wonderful Mother's Day


Raingutter Regatta

Monday, May 20th is our Raingutter Regatta and Gear Swap
Scouts should bring their completed regatta boats ready to race. If your Scout does not have a boat, please
check with your den leader asap. There is still time to prep boats! It is smart to bring a towel and perhaps a sweatshirt or something
dry to change into. While we are encouraging 'orderly' regatta racing, water is involved and sometimes water escapes the raingutters and somehow ends up on Scouts. :-)

The Raingutter Regatta is a Pack 3179 recruiting event. We encourage you to invite your classmates, neighbors, teammates, siblings or any interested child entering kindergarten through five grade this fall.
Potential Scouts will be able to participate in the regatta as well.
Pizza, veggies/fruit and cookies will be served!

Scouting Outdoor Gear Swap

Check your closets, sheds and garages now! Bring your items to the Monday, 5/20 Pack meeting.
Bring the hiking shoes/boots that have been outgrown, backpacks that have been replaced and no-longer-needed camping gear to the swap.

A Scout is thrifty! This is a free give-and-take swap.
Any gear that is left over following the meeting will be donated.

RSVP for Bridging Camp

Please help your Pack leadership with planning by RSVPing for your Scout and family members for Bridging Camp, 5/31- 6/2 at Camp Arnaz.
Go to the Pack website calendar now and indicate whether your Scout and family will be attending.

Popcorn Award Activity Ideas

Thank you to all who have emailed suggestions for ideas for possible award activities for reaching popcorn fundraising goals. There is still time
to email your contributions. Whether it is something we have done as a Pack in the past or something brand new, your input is encouraged and welcome.
Please email Pack Committee Chair, Rachel Casanta at rachelcasanta@gmail.com. Thank you!
