Upcoming Events

Pinewood Derby Clinic

Pinewood Derby Clinic is January 14th, 2023

From 10am-12pm


It is to be held outside the front of BUMC. There will be books with different designs along pages for the scouts to make custom designs. We will also have table band-saws, table sanders, and drill presses for you to use to help get the cars roughly completed and almost ready for paint. We recommend that the scouts go home and complete some hand sanding to get an understanding of the elbow grease it takes to create the cars. There will also be other leaders and adults that can help anyone who may not be familiar with these tools.

2023 Pinewood Derby!

February 4th, 2023

10am - 12pm

At BUMC


Drivers, start your engines! It is finally race time. This is when we will finally get to see if all the blood, sweat, and tears that went into building these cars pays off. We will have late weigh-in starting at 9am this morning with final weigh-in at 9:50. The races will start at 10am and we will begin with the lion den. We do encourage that all scouts be present to help cheer on the other racers because, well, a scout is cheerful! You will also get to see some funny skits in between races and enjoy some refreshments along with all of the fun fellowship! 


Parents, you didn't here if from me, but I have been told that we will have coffee brewed and waiting on you on this chilly morning in February. It will help you wash down some delicious Krispy Kreme donuts!




Scouting Through the Summer

Although the scout year may be coming to a close, there are still many ways that you can continue the scouting spirit through the summer until we meet again at the start of the next school year. Please see the list below for ideas. Also, check back through the summer to see any updates to this list. 

  1. Cub Scout Day Camp ( see above for more information)
  2. Cub Scout Nova Award
  3. Cub Scout Religious Emblem Award
  4. Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award
  5. Electives (belt loops) for your next rank


For more information on any of these items, please reach out to the pack leadership.


Notable awards that each scout can earn

Recruitment Award:

Any current scout who gets a friend to join is eligible for a “Recruiter” strip patch that can be worn on the uniform. Let the Cubmaster know who you got to join the pack.

Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award:

Please let Advancement Chair Justin Anderson know if your scout attended Fayette Day Camp this past June or attended an overnight Scout Camp this summer. If so, they are eligible for this awesome award. If they received it last year, let him know that too, they get a cool paw print pin that goes on the patch for a subsequent award. There are other criteria for the award but if you were active with the pack and your den last year, and attended the other outings, you would have completed all the requirements. See Justin Anderson for details.


Note about Uniforms:

A couple of changes regarding the uniform for this year:

1) Hats - We are no longer providing a Pack Hat. We are not requiring you to purchase or wear a hat with your uniform. But, if you are wearing a hat with your Class A uniform, it needs to be the appropriate rank-specific hat or if you have the old pack hat, you can wear that.

2) Neckerchief Woggles – in previous years, we provided a hand-tied woggle. We will not be doing that this year. You can purchase a rank-specific woggle at the scout shop or I will offer a free woggle kit for you to tie one yourself. We do have a limited amount of free older donated woggles available. See Justin Anderson for details. Neckerchief slides are available for purchase at the scout shop.

3) Pack Uniform Requirement – The Class A uniform consists of the blue button-up shirt (Webelos can wear the BSA tan…) with appropriate patches, rank-specific neckerchief, neckerchief slide/woggle, & scout belt. These are available from the Scout Shop in Griffin or online. You do not need to wear the official scout pants or shorts. They are a bit pricey and it is not necessary. A pair of blue jeans are just fine. Pants/shorts with belt loops are required, however. Again, a hat is optional. Class A uniform is required at all pack/den meetings unless otherwise noted by the den leader or Cubmaster. Class B uniform is the pack T-shirt. I’d like to see every scout in uniform as soon as possible. Again, you can offset or completely pay for your uniform via popcorn sales. If you have any questions, let me know.



Covid – We follow current guidelines from the BSA, CDC, State of Georgia, and the Fayette County School Board regarding school closures & Covid directives. If FCBOE decides to cancel school for Covid or any other reasons – ice storms, bad weather, etc., - we will cancel meetings on those affected dates as well. We also follow the rules and guidance from our charter – Brooks United Methodist Church – on whether we are able to meet inside their building and/or their masking rules. But please, if you are ill or showing symptoms of any illness, please stay home and we will make sure your scout is caught up. The majority of requirements can be completed at home when needed.
